It's been a while, but here's what you've all been waiting for - achievements!
Achievements will be available on all MCSG servers shortly as the update rolls out.

We're releasing our achievement system with about 20 achievements to start, however be assured that there are many more to come; in fact, we have nearly 100 achievements planned for the long term.

Right now, we just discovered the cause for the issue with the lag on the first set of US servers. We are applying the fix and will be up and running smoothly soon. Thanks for everyone who reported it to us. We hope this will only take about 5-10 minutes of downtime.

Update 3: Servers are back up but we will be monitoring them closely

It's looking more like a connection issue rather than a server issue but we will update you once we have information from the hosting company. Hopefully this is only a temporary outage as the last downtime was only 10+ minutes. Servers are back up now but we are monitoring it closely.
Update: It was the datacenter and an issue with their router. This issue has been solved according to their support.
