The frequent outages and functionality change/absence with zero explanation is starting to irritate me.

Hi,

I normally don't close threads in Support, but since you created http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-865747/frequent-server-outages-extremely-slow-loading-times-frequent-down-sampling-missing-queues about half an hour before this one, on pretty much the same topic, I'm doing so here.

This is just speculation on my part, but I believe that someone or some group is DDOS'ing CR every weekend, focusing on the time when SAO:II episodes come out. Just normal viewing of the episodes shouldn't impact things this hard, even of highly popular shows.

I agree, it's highly irritating, and I hope they're able to find a long-term fix for these kinds of things.
