Server is acting up again, on a Tuesday and at the very exact same time as yesterday, Sunday and Saturday. Yes, CR's server is not the best but 4 days in a row has never happened before in CR's server crash history. I never experience any crashes on my PS4 until this past Saturday for the first time ever. CR has been somewhat quiet on the issue as well. I truly believe that CR is not stupid enough to let this issue continue without immediately saying something or giving us a feasible explanation. The only other thing I can think of is that this is an organized attack of free users streaming during America's prime time of watching to bring bad press to CR, promote piracy and systematically have them lose subscribers. Who would it if that's the case? Torrent rippers? Anime Strike apologists?

I just can't imagine CR deliberately not giving a shit about this server issue especially these past four days. What do y'all think?

I honestly have no clue. I've been having issues for the last few days or so and thought it was just me/because of my internet (clearly that's not the case though x'3) As for whether or not there's some group behind all this, idk. I just assumed there were some problems unrelated to any kind of attack. But whatever the reason I hope that a) CR lets us know what the dealio is and b) things can get fixed up soon enough~

Well new simulcasts have started so if CR hasn't been improving its servers a spike in users could be causing it.
The servers on this site have been getting less and less reliable since last year, it was bad enough when the site was practically offline every Saturday night, but now its almost 3-4 nights a week where its unusable. With Amazon Strike dead, its more important than ever that they finally get around and fix this issue before the rest of us just give up and go watch anime elsewhere.
