    I concur. This doesn't seem to be an issue with an individual website, but rather an issue with accessing the delivery server itself. Loading the Forum without an Adblock, gets the Browser stuck on contacting ads.eurogamer.net. It keeps doing that for several minutes, until it finally gives in and loads the page. Without the Ad.

    I've done a tracert and there seem to be two hiccups. One in the beginning which may well be my Provider (it's visibly trying different routes and failing), the second hiccup seems to be on Eurogamers end. More precisely, this is how the tracert "ends"

    [...]
    17 62 ms 62 ms 62 ms bish.eurogamer.net [94.198.81.236]
    18 62 ms 62 ms 62 ms 94.198.81.235
    19 62 ms 62 ms 62 ms bish.eurogamer.net [94.198.81.236]
    20 62 ms 62 ms 62 ms 94.198.81.235
    21 63 ms 63 ms 63 ms bish.eurogamer.net [94.198.81.236]
    22 63 ms 63 ms 63 ms 94.198.81.235
    [...]

    Basically, Step 17 and 18 repeat ad nauseum (until it reaches the limit I've specified or the default of 30 steps).
    As has been said, this makes it literally impossible to browse the Forum without blocking this specific source.

    In further news, this is still happening, rendering the Forum unusable for anyone without an Adblocker. Any news on this front?

    Is that what it is? The forum takes ages to load on my phone.

    Yep. Basically the Forum tries to reach Eurogamer for Ads. The Eurogamer Ad Server however loops back on itself indefinitely. This goes on for a minute or two. The Forum can't load during this time.

    Adblockers don't allow the connection in the first place, hence why folks with Adblock don't get hit by the loop.

    Just a short update from my end, the loading times seem to have been fixed (I see the corresponding script has been commented out).
