Important notice about Atom Universe's Servers
During the launch of Atom Universe we've received a higher amount of players trying to access and play Atom Universe. In return, players may not be able to join their desired server or join their friends in-game. We're completely blown away by the response we've had from everyone in the first few hours of releasing Atom Universe across North & South America. Now, we'll be focusing on servers to try and allow everyone to partake in Atom Universe. If you're unable to join the Arcade Plaza or The Hub, check to see if other areas such as the Mirage House is available.
