I have the same issue. In addition, at the same time I cannot connect my game client, I also cannot use the website either. But then again, a after a minute is accessible again. It seems to have been occurring often this evening.
@pewpew What internet service are you using? It seems I'm having problems connecting only to this server. If it is Charter Spectrum, then we know where the problem lies.
Edit: I went ahead and called Charter, they told me that there does not seem to be any issues. The host is having issues talking to my ISP or something, and every 15 mins or so the connection breaks with the host.
