Our proxy server is what connects you to our hub and consequently our servers. When the current one at play.guildcraft.org gets around 700 players you will notice lag on all servers as that proxy reaches network saturation. To resolve this issue We've created a new proxy server located in north america to help take some of the load off of the main one.
What this means is all players in the western hemisphere (Canada, USA, Mexico, Brazil etc) should now connect to the server using the following IP:
The overal effect of this change means that american players will be connecting to the server closer to home and will get much better pings, as well as because there will be less load on the original proxy it too will see performance boosts.
