99.9% of the time when this message pops up, it's just the game being crap, there's no maintenance of any sort, and it works as soon as you refresh the page. I appreciate what you tried to do with it, but you clearly failed at it. The client has been way too prone to throwing up disconnect/maintenance messages since the very beginning (when the server is CLEARLY still functional and connected), why don't you just fix it? At least increase the disconnect time out so I don't have to refresh the page every 5 minutes? Come on...

You are right that "server under maintenance" doesn't mean most likely that the server is under maintenance. Also its more likely for a player to see "connection lost".

What you describe sounds like a cookie issue. Is it possible that you have another instance from BD running on you PC? For example Battlegalaxy?
Or another colony/user account on another tab?

If so, simply stop doing it, and you won't see this alert anymore :)

Not having bd.com and kong open at the same time has significantly reduces the issues, but I'm still getting quite a few disconnect messages (which almost immediately disappear).

Agreed, and the same goes for "trying to connect" or whatever it says.. I remember playing from phone and that message kept making me have to relog because it would pop up while I was scrolling and then once that popped up it would just keep scrolling to the side I was scrolling to. And yeah the server maintenance one is worse, since then you have to relog every single time.

Seriously wtf is going on, I get disconnected so much I barely have any time to actually do anything on 4tick/hr worlds because I have to reload like 5 times before it will actually load completely and not disconnect. G2 is especially bad, every single time I try to play it takes 2-3 tries and about 5 minutes of waiting.

If you ever want me to even think about buying reds, FIX YOUR GAME! The fact that you expect people to pay you for this is pathetic.
