Hmm. I have freed up the stuck games. However, the queue is not processing.

It may be avalanche turned it off because of the problems. Looks like games will have to wait for a while longer

Cloudflare is now "verifying" my browser, (no "Captcha is in effect), and upon verification, the website loads fine.
Very clever, Mr. Smart...

The processing queue has now been restarted. Games should be cleared within the next hour.

Our game, 181444, still is locked in a time Left: 0. Can someone look under the hood, please?

181463 did indeed process the most recent retreat phase, but now I cannot submit build orders because it says NO ORDER CHANGES allowed after processing starts. We have about 5 hours left before deadline.

I know you're super busy. Thanks for all that you do!

Many thanks to everyone involved for their great efforts.

To those clogging the chat and other features, please read the many status updates before posting and while the Powers that Be (tm) are working to remedy what seems to be a problem caused by third parties. Patience!

As you will have noticed, this requires everyone to verify through Captcha before gaining access. Sorry about the inconvenience, but the attacks were continuing and this is the best way around it.

I will now look to see if there are games that have been caught in processing and see if I can free them up.

Not sure if everyone is having the issue but in 181758 new orders phase just started but it’s not letting me input orders. Any time I try I get a messaging saying:
NO ORDER CHANGES allowed after processing starts.


The orders drop down menu shows I have orders left to input but in the active games page it doesn’t show up as having anything outstanding, even though it’s a fresh phase.

I've got the same problem/bug reported by andrewlawton, electrkfisch and I see others in some other threads.
Having processed the last turn, it now won't let me enter orders for the new turn giving the message: "NO ORDER CHANGES allowed after processing starts."

Game #182043. Game name: Mockery Loon Shot Put.
There are still 40 hours to the next deadline, so I hope time to get this fixed.

Thanks
