servers down?

When ever i try to connect to the US east coast server
i just sit at the grey screen and it never actually puts me in game.
This is extremely frustrating because i can never connect when i want to.
Some times it says that unity has stopped working, this happens for two of my
other friends. Not sure if this has anything to do with it though. But if there is a fix i would
really like to know.

-thanks
