At this point, all I can do is lol…

Haven’t seen any lag yet in-game. I guess your DDoS mitigation improvements are working better than they have been. Good job!

Thousands of potential players just witnessed Ccp’s servers and eve gameplay not function for the “million dollar fight”

Terrible PR

We all know it’s Goonswarm… NCdock was in the middle of disengaging when that ddos hit, so the goal is very likely to get as many pilot disconnects as possible to cut down NCs super fleet. Getting disconnected in that battle is basically a death sentence.

Was wondering why Domain market was taking so long to open. I waited a full minute.

As I said earlier… convenient that this ■■■■ happens every single time there is a major fight - and this time it started with log on issues since downtime…

Has there been investigations that these DDoS attacks are related to the player base who is attempting to influence the outcome of these huge fights?

(Phaedriel) #11

In this case I suggest DDOS stands for “DoomsDays, Oh Sh*t” and the server not being able to handle big fleet fights.

Dammit Goons!

(Neuntausend) #13

Because we all know the best way to kill a Keepstar is make the server crash until the timer has passed, right?

At this point I really think CCP are mistaking thousands of players repeatedly trying to login as a “DDoS Attack”.

(Lord Hedge) #14

I got a socket closed message on my accounts. I hope you can find out who is responsible for all of these attacks.

CCP, when are denial-of-service mitigation measures going to be implemented, if they haven’t already been implenented? This is starting to get really annoying.

(Salvator Ambraelle) #17

Looks like NCDoS is at it again :joy:

(Emporos Dimiourgia) #18

Funny that you say that when it is goons who currently hold field, NCPL is retreating and the keepstar is going down :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(R4d1o4ct1v3) #19

Goons actually lost out because of this. Probably a fair number of PanFan titans surviving because of this.

(Linus Gorp) #20

And pray tell why would they do it in the middle of their extraction when a DC is basically a death sentence?
