They just did a major update less then 12 hours ago. It should be up based on their Twitter. I'll check it out later.

twitter (OCTGN) says it should be working. and it is, kind of. I can log on and see other (non mage wars) games working. However, every time i try to start a mage wars game, it says "there was a problem, please try again"

and I see no other mage wars games (play nor spectate)

Maybe no one else has a game open right now. Did you follow the instructions for reinstalling OCTGN properly?

Quote
Having problems installing the latest OCTGN update?  Follow these steps:
1) Restart your computer
2) DO NOT attempt to load OCTGN after restarting
3) Go to https://www.octgn.net/ and download the latest version
4) Run the installer to overwrite your existing OCTGN installation
5) It is now safe to load OCTGN

Also, check your games manager and see if you still have the mage wars module installed.

It's not an actual virus.
