Anyone else getting loads of timeouts?


One Of Us
Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.timeout.ReadTimeoutException

Getting this loads all of a sudden on freebuild server, wondering if I'm the only one. Literally timing me out every 20 seconds. Did a speedtest and my connection's fine.

Update: Changed to Authentication servers are down error. Is that Mojang being crap?


Hardcore MCME-er
It's not Mojang. (tested logging in to a few other servers, worked fine) It just seems that the server is running really slow for the time being, as is TS. Will said he was going to call Q, although I haven't seen either of them on since then. Best choice is to sit tight and let Q figure up what the problem is.

edit: TS and Build is back up.

edit edit: I lied.

It's potentially the connection from America to Europe. It's not heard of for that to go down. I can join American Servers, but not European ones.


Experienced Member
I'm italian but I can't join the server too

There is a login problem, also ts doesn't work :(

I had a ton earlier, but I thought that was just my wireless being flaky. Maybe I shouldn't have berated it and hurt its feelings.

I messaged Q and tried to get on again that day but failed. He looked at it as it was unusual, so whenever this happens again either tell me or q about it so we can check what the problem might be.
