Okay, picture me, laughing at people who cant log in one second, then as soon as my internet fails I cant log in either. After refreshing the web browser I was unable to reopen the game. Any help, says I have a DNS lookup that failed.

I’m pretty sure this is due to the attack on GoDaddy’s DNS servers, so see if these steps to change your DNS settings work for you:

(Directions taken from Google Public DNS site.)


Changing DNS server settings on Microsoft Windows 7:


  1. Go the Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Change adapter settings.
  3. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example:
    • To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, right-click Local Area Connection, and click Properties.
    • To change the settings for a wireless connection, right-click Wireless Network Connection, and click Properties.
    • If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  4. Select the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) and then click Properties.
  5. Click Advanced and select the DNS tab. If there are any DNS server IP addresses listed there, write them down for future reference, and remove them from this window.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Select Use the following DNS server addresses. If there are any IP addresses listed in the Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server, write them down for future reference.
  8. Replace those addresses with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers:
    • For IPv4: 8.8.8.8 and/or 8.8.4.4.
    • For IPv6: 2001:4860:4860::8888 and/or 2001:4860:4860::8844
  9. Restart the connection you selected in step 3 (disable and re-enable your internet).
  10. Test that your setup is working correctly; see if you can get into the game.

Sorry for the issues some of you were having. There was a major DNS outage that was causing many websites not to resolve properly for some parts of the world, which unfortunately included our servers.
