Thanks for all your hard work guys.


 


and i reitterate a previous comment i made...


 


I have to say, the most likely causes of an attack are 1) disgruntled banned player. or 2) feeble attepts to stock up on SB for the wagon builds.


As such, in case it's #2 i Seriously think that NO SB should be awarded for this downtime cos it'll just incite more attacks.


just extend premiums and upkeep. this is the one occasion where i feel SB reimbursment would be counter-productive.

Thanks for the offical responses and keeping everyone posted. It's awesome that this attack is being turned into something positive. Let's hope the new servers are all we wanted :)

Thanks for all the updates RedBaron_Johan! 


 


I understand that there is just so many people that can solve the issue and now all it takes is time to solve things. Just doing it right the first time is the key to it all!


 


I will have to agree with JDBooker that NO SLEEP BONUS SHOULD BE GIVEN to any players. I mean, we are all penalized the same way and if the attacks are due to free SB, it should be thought against this. We should have the opportunity to add some maintenance to our deeds with the downtime instead. I think this is the only way it will be a win-win situation for everyone… Except for the new nomads rolling away with their wagons :P

#2 seems highly unlikely, as it wouldn't push anyone far enough to actually DDoS Wurm, let alone for this length of time.  

 

Here's what I'm thinking: it's either a disgruntled ex-player (not necessarily banned, just gone) or it's a form of protection racket trying to force Rolf's hand because he wouldn't pay up.  Of course, banned players who were known to sell game hacks would be prime suspects for the former, as someone who sells game hacks for money would be more likely to have the ability and desire to DDoS than someone who merely macros or buys those hacks.  As for the latter, there's an easy way to tell one way or the other regarding whether that's the cause, since it necessarily comes with a demand for money from whoever's responsible.  We don't know whether this occurred, but we can assume from Rolf asking for information on whoever did it that it's probably not that.  

 

So I'd be looking into the banned players list and list off each one who sold game hacks, then investigate each one starting from the most recent ban.

I for one am glad that Rolf and the team decided to turn this unfortunate attack into an opportunity to address the server and hosting issues.  Now is the perfect time for it and I do not mind waiting for the migration no matter how long it takes.


 


I only ask that nothing be turned on until everything is working as it should so we do not get any false starts.  Anything that is great is worth waiting for,

Maybe the new hosting has room for a new server? (have to try, lol)

Well, this sucks. I mean, being DDoS'ed sucks. no way around that... but the fact that it accelerated us getting a better game, makes it good. 


 


I'll never be glad that there's some sore loser who feels the need to DDoS us for whatever reason, but I'm glad we have a competent dev team who keeps communicating with us. Makes everything easier.

"The upside of this is that the new servers would mean better overall performance, capacity and stability for Wurm."


Oh noes! new,better and stronger server means less issues?... We will never gonna see 5h of free sleep bonuses again :(


Just kidding, thanks for the update and best wishes on moving.
