    As of 7pm EST, it's up.

    Make sure you have the address right: 74.50.98.226:5048

    I'm still getting the error, even with the address you posted. Not sure if that's just me, or a global thing.
    I think I'll just have to be patient~

    Smogon is undergoing certain technical difficulties. It'll take some time before it's up and running properly again, so waiting would be the best option.

    Ah, well, in that case, I'll just settle down, build a couple of teams, and listen to the twelfth Smogcast.
    There's no rush.

    Yeah, server's down. I assume it's because the hosting people are working on it. There's a pretty serious issue with the terminal server license manager. My wife (who's a sysadmin) says it's a simple fix. We'll see how long it takes the hosting people to figure it out.

    I really, really wish I knew. It's all in the hands of the hosting provider. Until they get the terminal server back up and running, I can't remote into the machine to get the PO server back up.

    Figured the server would be up by now since it went down almost 12 hours ago

    It's back again! There still might be a couple of issues from time to time until we're sorted with our hosting provider as Antar said, but it shouldn't be too much of an inconvenience.

    Ok... apparently Sawsbuck can't be used in RU even though it is in RU... the fuck.

    What season? Have you tried different seasons?

    Just checked the tier file, and the Sawsbucks are listed on the NU banlist (should be RU)

    ^ Yeah, I tried every form and it basically gave me the finger each time. It says, and I quote:

    (16:13:38) The following pokemons of your team are invalid (ban, level, moveset, item...) in Standard RU, hence you can't choose that tier: Sawsbuck-Autumn.c

    Or whatever Sawsbuck form I attempt to use.

    EDIT: Never mind, it seems the issue has been fixed.

    Yeah, there's no pokemon named Sawsbuck-Autumn.c. I assume you just needed to delete it and reamke it.

    Ok, this is a weird one. I logged onto the SU server and found that my points on the ladder were lower than they were yesterday. My account is password protected and I haven't battled since then. Is this a technical difficulty or has somebody figured out my password?

    It's called decay -- if you haven't laddered for some number of hours, your rating gets lower. However, ladder a match or two and the rating will go back up to what it was. This is just to prevent people from getting a high ladder score and then parking it there.

    As of me posting this, the PO server is down. I emailed chaos. Hopefully someone's working to get it back up.

    No really?

    I understand tl;dr, but that's kind of ridiculous.
