Looks like there is some activity through one of the U.S. Servers in Virgina (Were FA servers are located). Might be some government thing closing and doing something with that location were the servers go in and out.
Or just some updates causing some blackout for 5-8 min
Meh it's not like the world is going to end just because you can't get on FA. You aren't paying for it and I very much doubt you're donating to keep it up. SO it's basically a free service that you're leaching from. You can wish for it to be a stable service, but until FA is a for pay site, the RAEG here is rude... And I'm sure the FA team is already working on it, if it wasn't them who caused it in the first place.
