Nope, I wrongly assumed that a multi-million dollar company, that only offers their product online, could actually keep their service online.

So I guess a ddos attack is unstoppable, and this little "hacker" group is pretty much the Chuck Norris of the internet?

As long as you know you're wrong, that's the main thing.

No. it just takes some time to stop them.
Oh, and just so you know, multi-billion dollar companies running world-spanning distributed services get knocked down by DDOSes. Now that you know this, what do you expect from a minute company such as CCP that relies on the services of others and that (by design) has no redundancies for its core service.

Had a nice elegant reply, then the poor programming of the forums ate it, guess that's unstoppable too.

BTW you got a little something brown on your nose there.

No, it's very easy to stop that from happening.

No, that's just you vomiting nonsense so hard that you've managed to corrode your corneas from the splash-back.

Tsk, tsk, Thatt Guy. Behave now. Tippia quite well explained to you why your position is unreasonable. There is no reason to be rude to Tippia.

Sorry I didn't know that a ddos is the unstoppable beast that haunts the internet and nothing can stop it! Roll

Boy I'm sure glad you cleared that up!

I instead challenge you to provide a method or an example of one that was able to stop one.

Oh well, guess nobody wanted to play Eve today anyways...

Going to write a letter about how my credit card companies website got ddos'd so I can't pay sub fee this month.

But I'm sure since CCP can't deliver the product I pay for due to ddos, they will certainly understand when they don't get their payment for the same reason, so I should be good...right?

Yup, I'm sure they will understand.

According to the guy doing the DDoS attacks in EVE and other game servers:

"Why do we do it? Multi-million dollar companies aren't spending your money to ensure your game has good service. DDoS is so old it's funny."

It's business, as always, be it RMT or trying to sell some expensive tool against DDoS, it's pretty easy pretending to be some 14 yo kid scripting in a post here and there, but if you shake enough the light can turn on.
