Two hours ago, someone contacted us pointing out a fairly major security flaw inherent in the game code that has seemingly not yet been discovered. It appears that it's been around since at least Round 10 but in case other people have found out about it and due to the serious nature of the flaw, we've had to stop ticks and take the game down until we solve the issue.
We will notify you of when the server is publicly available again and the status of Round 16 and the havoc period following it, as well as the End of Round Ceremony. We are currently assuming that we can resolve the issue by Friday.
The creators hour will be going ahead next Wednesday, and we're still taking round name submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will keep you updated as more news becomes available, and try and give everyone a fair warning when the game becomes available again.
