Yes, server crashed and stayed down. Up now at 10:30 PST, not sure how long it was out.

Since software seems to check out.. then server is problem? Need new server provider... aren't we paying them so that this doesn't happen?

Interestingly enough, the HLTV server stayed up. Isn't that run off the same box?

I was able to join the HLTV server and spectate the crashed game, with all players still in the positions they were in when the game crashed, just not moving. So the crash was probably on the NS instance rather than the whole machine.

This wasn't the fault of the server provider. The box was in great shape. The game server software is what croaked.

HLDS is DYING.

Hmm, if it is the software i do wonder if a source port would fair better.

Isn't there protections in place for HLDS crashes / lockups?

Yes. They're imperfect despite their general reliability.
