JohnR I don't appreciate your sarcasm -  The NZ government has been known to block random websites because of connections to countries they don't get along with, so this doesn't surprise me, whether true or not.

@LydiaLubbockThe New Zeland government / DIA only block sites known to host child porn, The filter list is controlled by the DIA

 

https://www.dia.govt.nz/Censorship-DCEFS

 

The only other time some sites have been blocked by VodafoneNZ and other NZ carriers / ISP was when the Chch shooting happened and links were been shared online off to the shooting

 

Don't beleive any other rubbish you hear! if you don't like sarcasm take a concrete pill

Excellent, thanks a lot for that@LydiaLubbock . I can see that's failing from some geographic locations, but not everywhere, due to a DNS problem. Rather than using a VPN, you could try to use an alternative DNS (eg 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8) and see if that fixes the issue. In the meantime, I'll see if I can track down somebody to fix it, hopefully tonight, otherwise tomorrow.

OK, found just the chap I needed online. He's found and fixed a problem, and I can see the site na.wargaming.net is resolving now. @LydiaLubbock, thanks a bundle for your report! You may need to clear your DNS cache first (or just reboot).

@LiamSullivan are you still having problems? It should be fixed already, although you may need to restart your PC for it to take effect.
