Since you will probably warp off, your drones will have disconnected and either be eaten up by the NPC rats, or decayed (if the downtime is similar to the big one last night).

If they were T1's, just eat the loss. A single L2 should cover their replacement. If they were T2's, you may want to try a petition on them.

The new DDOS wormhole environments can be brutal. ;p

That said, probably put in a ticket if stuck when this clears up.

Come on CCP Any update on the situation would be appreciated ? Customers appreciate the regular info if it is bad news at least it shows there is actually someone listening and communicates your doing your best to resolve the situation ( which I am sure is the case) :0

A little humour and calming of those whom need their eve fix goes a long way during crisis down times.
Word up if you agree.

Good luck on getting things back up and running, CCP - until then, thanks to conversation with a friend today I have plugged in my old Commodore 64 and am enjoying some truly retro gaming until I can again log in and pew pew pew all the spaceships :)

Thanks again for all the hard work, CCP. I know how hard random DDoS attacks can be to mitigate, and have spent quite a few hours trying to deal with them on behalf of my customers in the past. :)

Again, to mention - any players who take losses or anything due to this, just file a support ticket and give CCP as much information as you can - pretend that you are the actual real life human who has to read it. Be nice. Give them proper links to the information they need to deal with your loss quickly so they can move onto the next report. Give them a polite thank you when the issue is resolved. You'll be amazed what a little bit of human decency can result in.
