Unfortunately, I have to announce that Jolt (indeed, the whole of London's Telehouse North) have been suffering routing and power problems.
While our portal server has not been affected, our beta and main game servers were involved. Our game server is (hopefully) unaffected, but our beta server seems to have several issues with it.
Because of this, and the fact that no one is able to examine the damage and fix any possible issues, we are unable to confirm when signups are going to open. We do have a copy of the code and the databases - for credits, new games and so on, so no matter what happens the long term effects are minimal.
We have almost 2 weeks until ticks are due to start, so a day or two's delay shouldn't really make too much of a difference.
We will announce when the issues are resolved and we're sure as to the opening of signups as soon as we're sure.
Sorry for any issues caused.
