Nice one your useless server held together with duct tape crapped out on everyone and my ship died…

Why even have it online if it’s that unstable… ridiculous game.


(Thematic Chaos Eto) #8

because lately they have been being hit by DDoS attacks - ever consider that it might not be a game issue?


(Mr Epeen) #9

i to can post with no grammar punctuation capital why do you people think someone might read your terribly written posts they are walls of nonsense mr epeen


(Kaivarian Coste) #10

yeah it sucks. :frowning:

the bad thing is that ccp doesn’t even give out SP compensation for downtime anymore.


(Tsero Tseronae) #11

Tons of lag but somehow didn’t get DCed or die.


(Boafang) #12

I really don’t care if it is a DDoS attack, all I care about is that my ship died through no fault of my own.


(Kaivarian Coste) #13

Socket closed with 1b in my hold. i dunno if gate rats killed my ship or not. :frowning:


(Uriel the Flame) #14

OP is completely wrong, CCP has prime quality minmatar duct tape that can hold entire space ships together even during the stresses of warp travel. :slight_smile:


(Thematic Chaos Eto) #15

Yes, but you blame CCP - based on no information at all…
At least wait until you know before throwing your dummy out of the pram at them


(Kaivarian Coste) #16

ummm i spent all of tonight running events so id be very mad if i lost it all for nothing


(Thematic Chaos Eto) #17

I have no problem with people being mad - I just think that it stinks that the first thing people do is lay blame at CCP when there are many other things that could have caused the issue that CCP has no control over
Also - I had clicked to reply to the OP not you… (see I make mistakes too :P)


(Votchuyorgh WIw'veD) #18

see the Eve is kill? thread.


(Kaivarian Coste) #19

yeh i understand. ill just wait until this blows over. but it seems this particular ddos attack is nasty. its not just causing lag, but kicking most ppl off the server


(Votchuyorgh WIw'veD) #20

Better put: Move to the Eve is kill? thread. No sense in keeping multiple threads for the same issue.
