iPGN 1, which is a bunch of the Australian servers, have been laggy and unplayable for the past month. But this post is specifically about the server that is sitting in the Australia server list and returns "The server could not authorize your account" message when you click on it.
Australia has five servers? That's kind of a joke considering how many aussies play the game, and how cheap australian hosting is getting.
The reasons that this is a serious bug are:
1) almost no games exist on the australian servers because people log in at 1am and start a game, tick it as private and then during the day when they want to play they use it. This means that there are never any servers available for use.
2) Automatic server selection when hosting a game is broken because it always tries to use the broken server
The server system really needs the ability for people to host their own games, maybe just for unrated games or something...
