Champions Online is down

For the bigger portion of the day, newly launched superhero MMO Champions Online has been down. For all of you looking for information here’s the word from official sources:

Champions Online is currently undergoing emergency maintenance to the game and website. Players will be unable to access the website, forums, and game at this time. I know that we’ve been down for a good portion of the day. But we have numerous groups addressing the issues. We’re sorry for the inconvenience today and I’ll update you as I know more.
