Can anyone else who plays Tribes 1 tell me if it is just me, or are all 3 master servers down?

I can't get any info on whether they finally pulled the plug on this great game, or if it is just some DOS attack like in the past.

Anyone else have any backup master server addresses?

Nevermind, it seems to be a DOS attack.

The master servers CAN be reached, but only sporadically, and very very slowly.

Unfortunately, Tribes old network code is very vulnerable to DOS attacks. One malformed packet is all it takes to make the server restart.
