The server was down for a few days due to a dispute with the service provider. Apparently, the firewall was not configured properly, which made google upset (this made my service provider temporarily disable my server). Should you still have any connection problems, let us know.
Update: The service provider (the guys that rent out the server machines), have informed me that their networks have been suffering from 'DDoS' attacks. This may have caused the lag spikes some have been experiencing in the last few days. It should be resolved.
Announcement: A new client with a built in updateer is available! Please re-download the game at astonia.eu (download section). This new version should take care of alot of the issues some have been getting when running the game for the first time.
