    I find it funny that most the people on this thread ranting/raging about how PWE is a horrible company, really doesn't know anything about the problems they are having. I would like to see u all try to keep this game defended from DDoS or even keep it running for 20 mins. really, just back off. besides, the game isn't built for customer satisfaction. it's built for taking money from players while providing a game to play. so yeah just some facts restated there.

    PvP happened on a PvE server from what I heard.
    now that you said it, i will say it too. i tried telling support that there is open PvP going on but they just ignored it. you can still get PK'ed on the PvE servers.

    we may have to wait until monday to get anymore news about the ddos attacks. :(

    Why bother starting over on another server when the problem can spread there too? The same attackers or new ones can hit any FW servers. PWE can't handle this.

    My friends and I are looking at new games to try out. If this isn't actually fixed and compensated soon, there's not much point sticking around and getting frustrated.

    Since you are all crying that Pw said they were going to compensate and havnt received anything yet, they did send out an email to the user, below are the contents, now please quit crying.

    Recently Perfect World Entertainment has fallen victim to malicious internet attacks.

    Due to these attacks, you may have had connection issues in-game, or loading issues with our websites. We sincerely apologize for the issue and will be compensating all of our players once these attacks have ceased and the source of the issue has been shut down.

    We are working swiftly to ensure that these types of issues will not occur again in the future. We are also working with the proper authorities to ensure that the culprits are found and dealt with accordingly.

    Once again, we are deeply sorry for inconveniences caused, and we will update you again once everything has been resolved.

    GET ALL THAT, they arent going to do anything until the attacks stop and incase you havent noticed, they still are happening, patients is a virtue and crying is for infants, so put your big girl panties on and stop QQing

    Shut down the damn server and put it back on only after fix the problems. I think is better than keep getting dc'ed every 10-15 minutes. Lot of people, me included, lost their XP events runs because of that. We are pretty sure we wont get these runs back so, fix the thing once and for all.

    Your paying how much to play this game and your pissing and moaning about compensation?

    Then don't do your exp runs til you know the server will be back up? Common sense, people. It won't hurt you to miss a few days of exp events. -.-'

    :mad:Completely pissed off why not just ban all incoming ips from non us based isps. Sounds tough but is really a simple solution. I think they are looking to deep into a simple problem. I run a few different servers for a few different things and have ha to deal with this same issue. Same fix i think just on a much larger scale.:mad:

    First, it's an international game with international servers so you can't ban specific areas.

    Second, what makes you think the ones attacking are not from the US?
