Trouble accessing BM
« Topic Start: April 23, 2014, 02:54:43 PM »
The player of the Telrunya family asked to post this:

Can't post on the forums using a proxy apparently. Can someone please post this on the forums? I can read them fine, I just can't post anything:

Ever since yesterday, the Battlemaster website (+wiki, +forums etc.) has been down for me. Every time I try to connect to the website, it just tries to load for a long time and then times out. At first, I thought BM was just having some issues, but it's still going on today. Hence I went and checked and managed to connect to BM without problems through a proxy server, but this is of course not ideal for playing BM. I tried to flush dns settings, as I remembered something like that from a while back, but that did nothing. No other websites so far have had similar issues.

Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to do to fix this issue?

I don't have this problem personally, I don't know how widespread it can be.
After all it's a roleplaying game.

Based on the fact that clearly most people are being able to access BM, this seems most likely to be a network issue on his end.

I'm afraid there's really very little we can do if that's the case.

I have had some intermittent issues the last few days where BM was very slow and nothing else was, but I could still access the actual site.

If he sets his DNS server to something other than his ISP provided server (such as google's at and it might resolve it. But yeah, definitely a network issue.
