    Reasons:

    • No one has been using it. I don't mean that our userbase has shrunk down to 100, 50 or even 10 users. Literally NO ONE has been using the server since I brought it up. This was even during the period that PS had yet to be set up and PO was the only server AND I was shouting from the rooftops on IRC that PO was back online. No one cares.
    • It's possible that our recent server trouble (DDoS attacks, which we now believe to be ACTUAL DDoS attacks and not just increased activity on Showdown) may have been targeting the PO software.

    Until we figure out where these attacks are coming from and how to stop them, PO will stay down.

    This is not up for discussion. This is not up for appeal.

    If you need previous-gen or doubles battles, you'll have to go elsewhere.

    I've set up a PO2 server. We'll see how it goes.
