Masters of Backgammon Online Game Issues

As you might have noticed during the past days we had interruptions of service in our online game and website.

This is due to excessive use of processing power and we had to switch to a dedicated server.

Currently the transfer is in progress and we expect the dedicated server to be up soon.

You might still experience some interruptions, but we are working to resolve this problem as soon as possible and prevent it from happening in the future.
