Yes, Per the ticket my friend filed her eis the response to the server disconnect issues occuring:"Hi there Username removed, Thank you for your ticket.

They are aware of the issue and have been for some time, there is not current work around or fix, that he or I have found. So pretty much 343 is saying yes sorry we are aware here is a 5 min-16 hour ban becuase our stuff doesnt work.
