Today's issue has nothing to do with the other issues that have been mentioned. The issues that you were having previously have nothing to do with Turbine. In fact, many games were affected by it, but not all gamers. It completely depended on YOUR internet provider and what hops your connection had to make before it got to Turbine. Today, everyone is affected. Their service provider isn't allowing any new connections of any kind. They can't even log in to the forums right now. We are all currently waiting for their provider to get their butts in gear...again...not a Turbine issue.
