DayZ Web Servers Down - 29/8/2012

I was hoping to post this on the actual game forums, but I can't the service is so bad & patchy I've given up and come to my own blog, so anyone reading this imagine you're on in the troubleshooting section.

I am having a lot of problems using anything pointing to the URL, this includes the site the forum anything, I also believe the Hive is being affected.

I am based in the Midlands of the UK, and have been having this problem for days now, whenever I try to access the site I get a long pause, followed by a message from "CloudFlare" telling me that "Website currently unavailable".

I have looked at the trace information to the site and see no problem getting to the site, just that the site is clearly so busy it is unable to serve my request... Is the DayZ site being subjected to a denial of service attack?... Or are there Zombies loose in the  datacenter?

Whatever the reason/problem, this is rather infuriating, more so for the fact that there is no acknowledgement of a problem by any admin/dayz team member anywhere.

So, straw poll, anyone else getting this?


  1. same here as well. Hive must be down?

  2. Yes the website is offline. Also all the gameservers are offline.

  3. I suspect this was a rolling update, but again no official word from any DayZ team members.

    The forum site is working again, if patchily, this morning.
