We are moving to Libera.Chat on IRC.
Game Chat, Discord Integration, et cetera are unaffected. All our bots have moved as well. For those whom do not use IRC directly, no action is needed.
There was not many votes on our community poll, but after witnessing with our own eyes a channel being taken over without any sort of warning or whatsoever, we have decided that Freenode no longer provides any sort of reliable operational stability.
We are NOT taking this decision based on rumors - both true and fake - which are circulating from both sides; We are taking this decision based on what we witnessed.
Therefore, we have settled to move all our infrastructure to Libera Chat, based among other things, on the community will.
This is a strictly technical decision; Operational stability has always been a priority for us, from backup to the choice of applications which are exposed to the public, like our wiki and forums backbone. IRC is no exception to this rule.
We also have decided to DROP the bridge which was maintaining a link between both networks for the reasons mentioned above. Therefore, users connecting to the old network WON'T be able to receive any support whatsoever. Our other bots have also withdrawn.
