Website Downtime, TRF-NGA Tournament

Our apologies for being offline over 12 hours today. Microsoft suffered a catastrophic worldwide failure of their Windows Azure cloud service at 3:44pm ET this afternoon lasting until around 4am (by which point I had fallen asleep, tired of waiting for them to fix shit). Service should be fully restored now - let's hope it stays that way.

REMINDER:  This evening is the TRF-NGA tournament. All captains should make sure their teams are registered on here and at  TRFPro (where you'll also need to invite your teammates, and they must accept the invites). Teams not fully registered will not be guaranteed a spot in the tournament, however we'll still try to get you all in.  Captains must show up one hour before the tournament begins to check-in, or your team will not be included.

We will send out reminders directly to all of the captains via e-mail and XBL in the next few hours, as we add the teams to the stats system.

I should also mention to make sure the gamertags on your registration are spelled correctly! Send us a message if you need to make any corrections or changes. Rosters lock one hour before the tournament begins. Invalid gamertags will not be added to your official roster.

Also, I plan to add more server power to the site before the tournament begins, just to avoid issues like we had during the last draft. If you want to help in that department, you can! Just try to give the site a work out this morning/afternoon, the performance data that's collected will help me adjust things more accurately. :)

Finally,  should the website experience another outage:  You may still be able to access the site at even if without the www is down. If neither works, try since it updates faster after an outage.
