So tonight, the BrM Freeroll page is not responding. I go to one of the Facbook pages to see if it might be there. It isn't,...BUT...
...I see some comment from one of those ckocroach parasites that reads:
"Someone is not doing their job"
So I figure,...."The nerve of the fcuker"
He couldn't be bothered to at least sign up with BrM and maybe participate,...but has the GAUL to complain when he can't pilfer the password.
Okay,....a couple of things to consider:
First: Fat Tony,...are you guys aware that overnite European time, that the site is very difficult to get into, whether it be the freeroll page, or the forum page, or any of them? I don't know what is happening, but it moves VERY slowly, then you just get a white page that says something like 'Network Error' and (tcp error) in parentheses... Maybe you know what that is,...and is maybe a tip to how it can be remedied if you don't know this is going on....
In the 9:00pm and 1:00am Eastern Time games, there are always somewhere between 1,800 and 2,200 entrants. Because the website was down tonight, but came back up with about 6 or 7 or so minutes to go before the 10 minute late registration ended,....this tells me that at least 1,500 to 1,800 entrants DO NOT get the password from BrM, but rather from those Facebook Freerolling Parasite pages...
Tonight there are ONLY 126 entrants,...which is rather kind of NICE,....AND interesting...!!!
...which sort of backs what I have said in the past about how many folks from BrM are NOT winning the prizes in the tourneys, but rather 90% are going to those bingo queen parasites who play like idiots,...ruin the games for US,...and make off with a majority of the money...
i.e. After about a week after the start of a new leaderboard, there should be 56 1st place prizes going to BrM members, but there are only about 3 or 4... Maybe I can find those threads I started a while back...and post them up......
OH HEY,... Here's the error message. Happens EVERY night:
Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out" The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

Almost every day is hard to get into the site around 02:00 GM
I know it cause in my country is not too late yet and I usually try to log in at that time. I think that some website update might be performed at that time, which turn the site temporaly down.
Nice to see that at least you could register to the PS freeroll and not many players got the pass. It would be nice if only BRM members got access to these freerolls,l but this has been discussed so many times before and I do not think that is going to change.
I've noticed the servers going unresponsive around that time too.
It happens every night as far as I've been able to tell. I've been meaning to report this myself, but figured it might be a local problem, since anyone from non-European time zones must experience this every day (for Europeans it's only after 2:00 AM).
The forum is not accessible at that time either.
@Admin: Any index rebuilds or batch jobs running around that time? Or is your hosting provider sharing the servers with some other client that does heavy batch processing around that time?

Only the night between saturday and sunday is something big going on, not much we can do about it, so we picked the time with the least amount of traffic so the least amount of people would be annoyed by it.

I have noticed the same thing too, at around 1 or 2:00 GMT the site is very slow or completely unresponsive, every night. Usually I will try to circumvent that by doing other stuff while I wait for BRM to respond to my mouse clicks.

Depends on the days. I sometimes click on the sites saying if its your problem or not, and it happens that some of the times the problem is from my side. But at some point there is a server update from what admin has said in the past.
