Crysis 2 PC Demo Issues

The Crysis 2 PC demo has been overwhelmingly popular, this has both an upside and downside.  The upside was that our Ranked Server Partners had to scale up for demand, nearly doubling capacity, and did so seamlessly.  The downside was we have overwhelmed our backend servers and this has required us to make a few changes to help better balance the load.  During that time (Approx 5 AM GMT - 11 AM GMT) it was necessary to bring down both the account servers and the matchmaking services.  All is up and running once again and we are monitoring things closely.  Many thanks for your patience.  Your participation and feedback will help to make this a great launch for everyone!
