  1. On 23/08/2016 we suffered a breach on our website, which rendered our whole database useless. We tried all day to work on solutions but due to how MySQL works with XenForo, such wasn't possible. All the partial backups we had also didn't work, so we have had to do a fresh install of XenForo.

    During the breach, the hacker managed to access our MySQL Database. While it's very unlikely anyones password will be leaked because of this as XenForo uses encrypted passwords and is very hard to crack, I'd advise anyone to change theirs if they were the same ones that they used on our forums.

    Over the course of the next week we'll be working on rebuilding our Forums, so user registration will be off. We will keep everyone updated and will definitely open up registrations as soon as possible.

    The Admin Team apologizes for any damage done to any users, it was something unexpected and out of our power. I know it'll be hard as we have lost all our threads but I hope everyone understands and sticks with us as we're sticking with MTG and redoing everything.

    Thank you.
