To the people wondering which disgruntled eve player is doing this: probably none, many different game servers have been targeted in the last couple weeks.

Constant downtime is really getting infuriating as I'm always either losing a ship to it or losing out on relic sites.

Usually you can do jack ****. DDoS attacks used to be mainly carried out via so called "amplifiers", i.e. where a reply in a protocol design was much higher then a request. Combined with spoofed IP src addresses you could use that to run DDoS attacks (earliest variant as far as i recall was so called "smurf attack", which used ICMP on broadcast addresses). Nowadays you just need little $ to rent a bunch of russian botnets. There is little you can do as an individual, backbone network providers and software providers can do something about it, but even they have a tough time. And yes, it is my job to know this :)


It used to be my job to know this.

So as a long time, loyal customer that is having a hard time using the service I pay monthly for, what is CCP planning on doing to reimburse me?

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.

If you're managing a stall and can't leave it and you have a sniper taking potshots against you and the police say "too bad HTFU!" and you can't find the guy taking a potshot against you you're **** out of luck.

Before you whine about it do you have a solution to present to CCP?

The solution I have presented is that if CCP can't provide a stable service that we all pay for, that they refund us accordingly. Almost every other mmo does this when they are having problems.

If my ISP can't provide me a stable connection, they refund me for the days I have had connection issues. I see no difference to the online service CCP provides.

Just wanted to 'congratulate' all those who came up with insanely irrational stories to explain how these connection issues were somehow the fault of the users or their ISP or the internet as a whole.

Clearly issues stemming from attacks on CCP server are not classified as "a problem on the server end". I want to apologize for being right all along, and I offer this apology on behalf of all rational people who don't think like sheep.

Yours truly,

Please provide proof that you indeed were talking about an
issue that came up because of their servers ... and not from an attack.

Which is something completely different.


You are just a worthless wannabe-i-am-right-you-are-not.

6 dead hops at London. Not exactly a "minor" thing if you ask me. Had this verified with Time Warner's NOC.


Can't you guys at least get those nodes flagged as wormholes and routed around them?

@CCP: Maybe you should install an Estamel's Modified DDOS Hardener and an Estamel's Modified X-Large Server Booster? Smile


Aside from that: Keep up the good work!

Considering how long TQ was down during the first run of DDoS attacks a little over a month ago, the time from crash to back in flying has shown amazing improvement against the daily thud Socket Closed booted to RL problem now.

What boggles my mind now is this persistence.

Who is really having a bad month and are taking it out on CCP??

I mean really, I can hold a grudge with the best but impacting unknown thousands isn't a standard tactic when I am having a Bad Year and want to share around the bad mood.

0.o?

At this point if they are found I don't know if I want to take a sledge hammer to their computers or give them a box of Nutty Bars to mellow them out.
