C&C 3 Servers Down

Just a note to those of you looking to play C&C 3: the servers appear to be down, and have been all afternoon. As expected EA's been all over the issue, clearing it up as soon as possible.

Just kidding. :) There's been no response whatsoever as of now, except to delete posts on the forums that speculate about the patch. For those of you who think the patch is coming out today, I doubt it, because most EA patches are released on Mondays or Tuesdays. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, looks like no C&C 3 online.

Edit: Sources also indicate that Generals Online and Battle for Middle Earth servers are down as well.

Second Edit: EA is now aware of the issue, as indicated by this post on the official forums. I should point out that Generals, Zero Hour, BFME, and C&C 3 severs are all powered by GameSpy, so it would seem that this downtime isn't strictly EA's fault. Online play servers for these games have been down since Sunday morning.
