THis is kind of frusterating. I can't get into the master servers, nor can I acces the other servers displayed here in the forums. I'm sorry If I sound noobish, this is my first time trying to connect to the interent servers. Me and my brother have been playing the game for a while and wanted to see how things were played online. Thanks. :D

If I'm reading this right, the master server is not functioning right now. Other servers may not be open as of yet, either. Normally, other than the master server, a server is only up when when the event is going on, which normally only falls on a Sunday.

Welcome to the forums though, Chaoman.

oops, bad timing...

the master server is normally up all the time, so connecting to any TM server is easy.

it should be up soon, so all will be right with the world again :)

I'm getting the impression that online TM is dead

No, not dead at all.

We just need to poke Rick/Jim to restart the master server. It clearly died the yesterday and no one checked the forums to find out it was down.

You can join the LDA server at:

Just gave Jim an email. He probably won't check it until tomorrow, though.

I just called LDA and Phillipe was there.

They are looking into the issue now.

Also, it's good to post a query in the support forum when the server is missing.

Thx Vor!

As for support, I don't think Rick's checked the forums for about 2 weeks. I have a feeling LDA is working feverishly on Hegemony :)

Yeah, a telephone call still works best when it is an emergency, what's a phone call from California to Canada when you can't find a TM server to play on?
