I will taking the server down for an hour in the next week to do some updates to the pvpgn. The newest version is more stable and has corrected many memory leaks. I will announce 24 hours before I schedule the system maintenance.
Play some matches with your friends. It will benefit me by using the statistics for the ladder design. You will also benefit from the points you accrue. Check your points with the stats command. The more points you have the better icons, ranks, etc. will unlock.
