just a little update, when hooking my macbook up via ethernet cable, I was able to connect to shoddybattle.com if anyone has had troubles can someone try this to see if it works for them to?
EDIT: I have found a fix for this (well at least my problem, it may work for you guys as well). Go to this website: https://www.opendns.com/start/computer/
and pick your operating system, etc. follow the steps and then you may be able to access shoddy. Could people please try this, thanks.
