Apparently some time today while the forums were down, I lost the ability to host. Me and DoL both tried hosting (We Tried Multiple Mods) and The Server would send a heartbeat, but we would not get a conformation message? Any troubles guys?
There were some issues regarding the server load - mostly tied up in over 8000 downloads of tribes2gsi off of TC.net... the listing was rewritten to support some caching, so may not have been responding for a few hours, but you shouldn't have any trouble now.
I noticed the same thing, Tribes Next is garnering a large amount of traffic due to gaming news sites recently.
