I don't pay a premium sub to have disconnects every day for several weeks.

If your team can't solve the problem after several weeks you need to issue both an apology and a refund to your players.


This is like buying a ticket to the theatre, getting stuck in a traffic jam and missing the show, and then claiming it's the theater's fault and they should reimburse your ticket.

They're not obligated to reimburse you.

There's a premium sub? Why did no one tell me about this? I've been paying for a regular sub like some kind of welfare pleb.

No they don't.

Maybe I am so harsh about problems like this due to something like 10 or 11 years of off and on dealing with them.

Cant we just go back to no warp to zero pls? Wouldnt that fix everything?

What?

@CCP, you just keep fighting the good fight for us.

I do have a question, is it not possible to trace these attacks, throught IP or whatever, and even strike back at them? I mean, these things should be 2-way right?

So that big talk you had at Fanfest about security and impenetrable systems?

Well you seem to be slowing down the attacks, that is something and I know nothing about network security nowadays but either your system isnt good enough or there are some very angry nerds out there and we all know what kind of pain angry eve nerds can inflict with their brain cells :p

Tracing people actually responsible for a DDoS isn't easy, and even if it was - "returning fire" is (as tempting as it might be) illegal.

Still, props to our benevolent viking overlords for mitigating those faster each time.

I would like to point out here that sticky threads are of no use for the people who need to rant ...
... especially when it's made by a dev.

And people *need* to rant. Having them rant is better than not,
because when they stop ranting ... they unsub.

You need to understand that there is a good reason why people choose a player-made thread,
instead of the thread that was obviously there before that thread. It's important to consider.

If there is no lighting-rod-thread that catches their immediate attention ...
... people will simply create their own threads en mass.


Nothing you'd want... lol


Thanks.

Ranting by it's very nature is not productive, so when they unsub they also stop ranting which is a net gain for everyone.

Your own logic.

Stop complaining about sov already ...
... and just unsub, which would be a net gain for everyone else.

Eve players - the embodiment of HTFU made manifest.

But a few server outages and people start acting like little bitches.

I do hope this ^^^ was meant as a joke.

Sort of nerdy does not really know how to actually be witty, but tries anyway.

Poor CCP, poor us with the recent spate pf attacks.

This is not a signature.

It appears that Eve Online is not dying. Even though some one, some where has an unhealthy obsession with the Eve Online Servers.

A DDOS is a distributed attack, which means that multiple computers have been used (usually without their owners' knowledge). Tracing a specific IP would only follow the attack back to the 'zombie' computer.
