I was on until sometime in the middle of the night when my internet blipped off.
I think the deal is that if you were online and stayed on, you didn't get DC'd. People who left multiplayer couldn't get back on after about 9 p.m. EST.
I'm not sure matchmaking works, if fact I doubt it, but if you're still online you could probably exchange FCs with RJ and still play in a private lobby. --- Even my signature is off-topic! Conduit2FC(36): 3354-2948-5226, (38): 4814-7986-3261
