Not sure what legal issues you are referring to but the servers (not just the COD) have been taken offline since we are working with Dialog to improve the latency and upgrade the performance on the servers. We hope to have them up for testing in the coming weeks and probably back to normal by the end of the month. Would appreciate feedback/support during the testing phase.

Thank you for the answer! the legal side i was referring is, can you buy a VPS and install a cod server to it without paying for the game? i though they took it down cuz of something like that. no one will sue you if you are bunch of gamers who host a server on aws like that. but for Dialog, they can be sued, right ?

Basically, it can be sued no matter where it's hosted. But depending on the country, the illegality and legality to host pirated software varies. Law is something that can be twisted here and there so no one will know who will win if such a court case actually happens. But I think the real reason is that the game maker doesn't actually care and the amount of money that need to be spent researching on such piracy cases are so damn high. So it's not really worth it unless they gain some huge amount of cash out of such legal cases. They certainly don't want to go against a certain person who host or make those pirated files, because their life will be ruined in jail after that.
