    Hm... So this happening for 4 days now... Its only me who noticed PWE cant do anything with this? So this will stop when the DDoSer gets bored enough to stop it?

    Simple... What do doctors tell you when you caught a virus? Just let it run it's course, there is no cure......

    For all of you geniuses thinking its bugs, its not... If it were bugs, ALL SERVERS WOULD BE AFFECTED JUST THE SAME, AS THEY ALL USE THE SAME VERSION OF THE GAME! SO GET A CLUE BEFORE YOU SPIT STUPID ACCUSATIONS AND GET YOURSELF BANNED. Second, There are 10x more people on JD's east coast server than on FW, and it never had issues... NOT AN OVERPOPULATION ISSUE! It is a sorry **** DDoSer who recently had his JD private server shut down, because it had hack programs or something like that, and is QQing. Also heard rumors that the moron was planning to blackmail PWE on the grounds of he won't hack them if they pay him... Its some sorry **** kid thinking he is a badass, who is gonna end up in FEDERAL PRISON for this BS, and QQ LIKE A 2 YEAR OLD WHEN IT HAPPENS!


    all pw games run on very same server and not divided up on several servers to ease off the traffic and make each games more smooth??? O.O and just sad if its really 3 kids doin this ^^ able 2 fk up whole pw staff (these kids would most likely NOt get in prison and DOUBt they would get kicked into a federal prison OFCourse unless if accused of bein terrorists then yea instant shipped 2 the states for **** woopin lololol)
    anyways im off >.> and wake up early seems server is more smooth there since most of the states gamers are sleepin ^^

    There was once this guy who **** into a bank and stole lots o money, he almost got away and was caught in the airport, instead of arresting him, they hired him to do their security haha. Just a lesson learned by PWE.

    And I'm a bit confused when it comes to this DDoS.
    Who they hell can get ahold of 50,000 Comps?
    If the computers are being "used" without permission, how would I stop MY COMPUTER from being a victim?
    I also heard that a DDoS can come from a website being **** that has A LOT of bandwidth, like google or hackthissite.org?

    Darriuss, your the one who doesnt have a clue. Each server can have its own bugs, that will only affect that server. Thats common sense, 8th grade knowledge. Dont come in here trying to fill peoples minds that don't know exactly whats going on with your very limited knowledge.

    All the game clients run off the same Update link, only difference is that the servers are divided by region... IF IT WERE BUGS, IT WOULD BE AN EASY FIX! USE SOME COMMON SENSE PEOPLE!

    This is getting rather aggravating. Doesn't PWE have some defenses against DDoS attack? After all, this the fourth third time I've had to log off and on in less than half an hour.

    If this is something new and sudden, I'm a little more understanding, but some people have said that this has happened before. If it has, than why aren't there any counter-measures in place?

    It's the internet, what do we expect? Attacks can happen to anybody, same with any company. But personally with all the money PWE has made from all it's games and in-game "Cash Shopper's ONLY" Items.... You would think we would be at least better protected.

    Meh, I would just close it down so it never re-opens... maybe the real DDoSer would see no one no longer played on East so he/she/it would go and bomb West or DE servers xD

    For sake of emphasis.

    However; I do have one question. Why is it just PWI's East Coast severs? Does this mean whoever is committing the DDoS attacks on a wide basis is targeting Eastern server locations?

    seriously guys you should expect this from a FREE mmo. P2P mmos have way better firewals, security and way better techs to keep the game going. sorry to say, this game maybe washed up if they cant get it under control. well guess its all SWTOR for me :). actually i was going over there anyway once it released. could care less if this game crashes now.

    Silly comments like that always make me laugh.

    Just because a game is placed in the free to play genre doesn't mean it's OK to lower the standards. They both make money off the gamers and make large profits. The only real difference is they use a difference money scheme. I wont bother going into more detail because I have ran into way too many hard headed people that refuse to listen to reason about the whole it's a free mmo bs.

    As far as not having as good secutiy, firewalls and techs. Why is that? Quality hired =/= Quantity. If their tech's are not up to standards then they shouldn't have been hired. As far as firewalls and what not, they should also be up to standards or the company is just being more greedy than they should and not prioritizing quality <-- which is the problem i see with many games, p2p and f2p alike.



    Few more days till it's been a week. Guess I better gather all my diamonds on my alts in case a week passes and I move to another game. Sure my guild could use several more diamonds.
