    Hey guys,

    This is going to be a relatively quick announcement. As most of you know, our Sonic Drivethru server has been down for a couple days. According to our host, we were unfortunately getting DDoSed. Which means that the SDT server was profusely hit offline due to severe connection overflow. Now there is no for-sure way to prove this, but as of now we'll just have to take their word for it.

    So what's going to be happening? Unfortunately the server is going to have to be rebuilt. This is both good and bad. Good because the Neonheights map will fortunately be updated to it's latest version but bad because the server will be offline for several days. There is no ETA just yet. We'll keep you posted.

    On behalf of Essence and the Head Admins, we apologize for the inconvenience.

    Huh, it's about time the map got updated. Heck, we could even choose a new map, if the owner and everyone agreed with the map.

    I mean, Neon Heights is an incredibly popular map. I'd be hesitant to change it too, especially with all the traffic it brings in on a regular basis.

    We have a CS:GO server, unless that was taken down. 24/7 Office.
    Also, I am with Essence on this one, NH is one of my favourite maps and taking it down will have our population plummet during the Asian hours.

    the asian hours? Is that when everyone here in good old america is asleep, and the server is occupied from the other end of the world?
