Soundburn has announced in this thread that the team names function is operational again.
After testing it myself I can confirm this to be correct.

Posted by Seibertron:

I will NOT tolerate a small group of people taking advantage of the situation with the game. Glyph and I are working to resolve the programming issues with the game. The people whose characters I banned tonight know who they are. Enduring repairers causes major problems with the server. Now I know what was going on when there were server problems during the past few weeks. This staff does NOT need to put up with this crap. I hope the example I made of these people's accounts this evening will show the rest of you that I'm being very serious about this. Please do not take advantage of the enduring repairer problem while this loophole in the game still exists. If you are caught taking advantage of this, I will ban your characters as well. I'm sorry this had to come to this but I will not let the top few people of the game with the highest scores continue to cheat any longer. Bottom line. End of story.

Seibertron posted this little note and I thought I'd put it here for you:

I just resolved a major server issue yesterday that I will be making sure to keep an eye on. This "change" made a huge improvement in the server's performance and it seems to have continued today so far.

Hopefully this will help the game and the rest of the site live together in harmony, unlike the bots featured in Heavy Metal War. Keep your fingers crossed, and if you have anything you would like to discuss please visit the Discussion Board.

I have sent several private messages as well as e-mails to various players regarding innapropriate names. And these names are very innapropriate for a PG-13 site.

I have given plenty of warning both on the message board and on this page right here thatI was going to deal with people who did not change their names.

I'm sure that some of you have noticed that you do not access to your accounts anymore. If you look into your private message box you will see a PM from me. But some of you have also used e-mail accounts that are inactive.

If you cannot get into your private messages and you are sure that you never received an e-mail from me then e-mail me at maximusprime@seibertron.com and I will see what i can do.

I have given more than enough warning about some of these names and to date not one has been changed.
I'm sure that you know who you are by now.

Seibertron has activated Missions again and posted the following:

Hey guys,

Since the site seems to be loading significantly faster with the new site design, I thought I'd give the missions a whirl again to see how the server handles having those back on. While I definitely did some things to improve the loading time of the pages, I'm very surprised at some of the results. Some of the things that are different about the code behind the current site structure really shouldn't have had the effect on load times that they did, but for some reason it's performing a helluva lot better.

We're sorry to announce that due to server issues we had to clear out the Mission and Arena logs.

Hopefully this helps us figure out what has been happening with the recent Arena battles and the lack of battle logs.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused.

Once again, a note about names.

There have been a couple of reports about the "F" word being used as bots' names, or variations of).

I want to remind everyone that this is a PG-13 site, yet young people do look at the site and may have parents that do not approve.

Please use your common sense when creating names for your fighters. The basic rule of thumb we use for names in the game is that if it isn't allowed on the message boards then it's not allowed in the game. And the "F" word is not allowed on the MB.

Please change those names immediately, and use a
little common sense while thinking of names.
This is a Transformers site after all.

Looks like it's back.

I may be a bit premature in posting this, but for now I'd say that the game is working again.

Please don't get too excited though, this may just be a phase while things get worked out. As far as I know we still don't know what caused the error, but I assure you that as soon as I find out more I will keep you all informed.

Small bug

We are aware of the current bug that is in the game where you seem to have your bots always active. I have reported this to Glyph and Seibertron and it should be corrected shortly.

Right now I have found that after you complete missions and it says that your bots are 'Done' but still active click on theCR Chamber. It will show that they are recovering but they are not really.
Click into the Registry and you will find them deactivated, but not in CR anymore. Go back into CR and you should be able put your bots in to be healed.
You can then go back into the registry to active your healthy bots for more battles.

Hopefully this system works for you as it does seem to for me.

The thread for discussion is here.

EDIT: Another method that was mentioned was just simply refreshing the CR Chamber page. It worked for me, and it cuts down on going back and forth.
