Happened before?
That it must have been either before I took it (few days after release) or when I was offline for a few days.

I guess that might be a sign of imminent meltdown.

EDIT: let's hope they get the servers back up a lot sooner this time.
Crunc, I see te same problem as you. I have old games reapearing after a few days.

Before yesterday, there has never been a server outage of longer than a couple of hours.

Yesterday afternoon, there was a major power outage in all of San Diego county. 1.4 million businesses and residences were without power until this morning. We'll have the server available again by noon Pacific time.

Well, then, I guess I'm thinking of something else, or it just blew up bigger in my mind then it actually was. Very possible. I definitely remember the previous time, though, and when this happened it was definitely preceded by dead games coming back from the dead over and over. Then they fixed the server and the dead games also went away, but over the past week or so the dead games have risen again. In particular I keep getting a game (auto-match) that one player never took a turn in and so I forfeited to get out of it. I've now had to re-forfeit it about 10 times. Maybe more.

So obviously the current outage is due to the power outage, but there is certainly this issue with old games returning over and over. At least I've certainly been having that problem.

I never had this dead games issue. I only have the issue of dead games because players have vanished .....

Exactly! Not to mention setting difficulties on your opponents.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!
