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
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 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168) 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).

Thanks @ChrisVF I am sure they will appreciate the quick fix on a Sunday evening and no Government blocking was in place
