Act,
My post was more aimed at paul yang who was whinging about ddos just cos of 1 dc in the middle of a HA run. ALL of the ddosing, both this time, and 1 year ago, seems to be happening in AT's and/or mat. So the likelihood of them bothering to ddos you in HA is slim.

Also i know its annoying, it was mostly europe who was affected by this last time around, rather than america. Although to some extent, both continents got hit on both occasions. I was hit real bad last time around, i couldnt even play the game for over a week and didnt load into a single match of that monthly, but then after mat he seemed to just give up. Shit happens, if it bothers ppl enough to quit the game over, thats a shame, but why people prioritise the mat specifically over ladder or regular AT's i dont know. RP's and trims are entirely worthless, ultimately you either enjoy gw and play it or u dont. Quitting the game just because someone ddos'd ur mat is just comical.

Also @ tearz + everyone else, im 99% sure its not elir, all the clues point at it being the blood spiker/syncer who went by the name "sly gangster mmm". Thats the faggot who was using all the bots in [Don] last year, then got banned etc etc. I dont imagine elir will confirm/deny this if its his bud, but thats what most ppl are thinking.

Yeah floor I didn't mean to single you out. I think I've seen other places on the forum and in game people trying to downplay the effects of this, and it's really unsettling.

My main point is just that anyone left playing is pretty much playing to have fun with their friends. Sure, we all want the elusive Au, but at least in my experience, the fun of fucking around is a lot more of a drive to keep playing than the yellow backed dream.

When you consider that, whoever is doing this isn't just stopping certain guilds from winning games; they're stopping people from having fun, from even wanting to play this game, because when it comes down to it we don't know if 8 players will see the loading screen.

The 1% means you still doubt the person because you'll always know that person has dirtied his hands simply by association. How would you feel knowing that theres always going to be 8 people snickering that one person on their team DCed you out? Clearing his name my ass, thats like saying "hey look its only the accomplice, hes not guilty!". Oh of course its fine to forgive someone who laughed his ass off when you got DDoSed a second before you enter a match right?

http://teamquitter.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... hilit=ddos - my thread

http://teamquitter.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... hilit=ddos - thread of the 2nd guy who complained

A full week before the 2nd guy started mentioning things.

And I'm not done just yet.

Also they have bots on the ranger and the mesmer.


Boy... Boy... Here is where the good part begins. Ranger AND a mesmer????? Thats two guys!!! TWO GUYS!!!!!
You guys already forgotten these guys bot too? At least two of them are guilty of botting, so a guy who might also be a botter wants to clear his name isn't gonna be let off that easily. I don't give a shit if the OP is guilty or not, he is still a possible suspect.
Better safe than sorry.

There is basically no way to protect against a DDoS, here's a few reasons.

- How do you know who and when got your IP. Therefore, you wouldn't know that you need it changed.
- If you have a static IP, you're screwed. Even if you get your ISP to change it, they won't put it high on their list of priorities.
- Basically if you are on any voice or chat server at any point (which is any competitive player) you are susceptible.
- If you have a dynamic IP you could go ahead and reset your router, but who wants to risk it during the mAT. I suppose it's better than the alternative, though.
- DDoSing is cheap as balls, I'm on a forum where I could get somebody to DDoS for an hour or two for $2, do that for half the members of every team you play and you've just bought yourself a gold cape for 10% of the normal price.

Make sure you know who your voice and text chat admins are, because if you ever get DDoSed in game, it's likely one of them. Or a QQ mod, but let's not go there.

could be gw servers being targeted like evan said, which ever the game is being hosted on, its pretty much given in your dot but that would mean everyone would be lagging so its safe to rule out that one.

GW servers are designed to have hundreds of thousands of players pinging them constantly. You'd need a and absolutely massive botfarm to try and overwhelm a game server.

They're also probably shutting some of the GW1 ones down for GW2.

Wouldn't matter. You'd still need a significant sized botnet to fill the ingoing server for a game and the only groups who have access to botnets that large have better things to do with them.

OP is still a bitch thinking he can post obvious shit you can get from wiki. A few days ago I was tombsing and look who I found on the other side? Elir and that Valcon guy on the other side. They DDoSed our rit, who goes by the name Jenny In Candyland or something (shes American), I still get a kill on their warrior before they wiped my team from having no rit. These guys will still DDoS and they won't give a shit as long as they win.



xD why u suspect me anyways, did i slap u to hard?
(srry for late reply i just noticed this)

thats definitely not what i meant at all. although i know my idea is terrible to begin with, i was guessing that it was random dc's.
