I can't say I'd mind them seeing jail time (not really just for EVE but for everything they've hit), but torture is pretty extreme.

Ehhh, I find jail for DDoS to be a little bit extreme (if only due to the fact that the same laws are used to throw people using DDoS as a form of political protest into jail) - I think a more rational response is just adapting to these attacks, improving ones network to prevent similar attacks in the future, and determining the origin of said attacks and preventing access to the network from that point of origin in the future.

My point of view, however, is affected by being a citizen of a country where we have seen DDoS attacks actually result in changes that have made the world a better place.

DDoSing a video game just to shake ones e-peen, however, is quite silly. Worth jail time silly? Nah. It's not like there's some serious political message or protest message to be gained by annoying people who play a video game :P

Noooo... I lost my drones in space. The first time I got disconnected tonight my drones ended up back in my drone bay. We'll see this second time tonight.

In the past when I got disconnected from the serve the drones would still be floating helplessly in space.

I'm seriously getting tired of all these unscheduled downtimes. Make the server stable or loose players.....simple.

I don't.

I hope CCP can convey their financial losses so that these idiots can pay for it with jail time, if caught.

Direct Denial of Service

If someone wants to lag that server, they can get rent "proxy" machines, and cause them to constantly ping the server, and they server has to process every ping, so the faster the pings, the more lag, eventually the server will crash

UPDATES - 22/08/2014:


Good thing clones don't need sleep and can work on solving issues 24/7.
If you feel exhausted, just use a new jump-clone... or maybe you did already.

You guys do have jump-clones @ccp_headquarter, don't you?

So lets say when the server went down this most recent time and I had just jumped out of my wormhole to see where the wormhole went and launched probes and then poof! I have to go and will likely not be able to login for a while leaving me stuck outside my WH. (If the probes have not already expired they will soon) Can I petition this so I can get back into my WH and get my probes back considering that it isnt my fault that the servers went down? I would understand a petition for this being denied if I jumped out and logged off of my own accord; but I have no control over this...

I have a bad feeling about this..

While waiting I wrote a haiku for EVE.

My spaceship goes boom
so I dock, and am safe now
then my game goes boom

Good luck CCP
