OMFG... 77 pages. You guys are nuts. But we really appreciate all the support.

So in case it hasn't been answered, let me drop some bits of info here...

1. We can't change hosts because it wouldn't matter. The attackers would simply attack the new server the moment we made it public on the launcher. They also like to take little breaks from attacking us. Either because they're letting us think it's safe to bring the server back up just to have them bring it back down in an hour, or because they're redirecting their attacks to another server at that moment (we've confirmed that it's the same botnet/whatever attacking different ones).

2. There are L2 servers being hosted by a few places that are also being attacked (not just Infinite's). The attack is so massive that even those who have "DDoS protection" were brought down. If you think it's as simple as "OH WELL JUST BLOCK THE IPS!!! NULL ROUTE FTW!1" or something silly like that, you have to remember that once the DDoS starts, the box is totally cut off. So you can't just log in and check what IPs are smashing it. Not only that, but even if/when the hosting company gets back to you and lets you know the IPs, they may not all be in the same range and there may be hundreds. So sure, you could block a few, but vs a botnet that's spread out over multiple countries it does no good.

3. Development continues. I am on retail working to gather information for the Abyss while Erb, Goog, and the GMs are working to implement some new stuff.

4. Erb and I have talked about how long we think the server will be under attack, and what we want to get done before it comes back up depending on how long this goes on. So far, we're in agreement that there will be no wipe yet. Most of all because we don't want players to come back to IA and be like "WTF DID THEY GET HACKED, WHERE ARE MY CHARS!?!?! /wrists" We just don't want to deal with all that butthurt. But also because like we KEEP saying, we have a lot of work to do before we go there.

maybe,but if they would change the host to one from USA or other country,it could limit the DDoS'ers range of attack...that's a presumtion,don't start killing me with a lot of posts now

hm...maybe...

but I think were dealing with no "noob-hacker-kids-gang"...they´re good...!

so if erb & co would change to an US host, nothing will change...

Yes it is something bigger then I expected...

Many BIG companys, like Yahoo for only example, have been Ddosed to...some of them had to fight 11 Days or more against them foolish hackers...!

I think the biggest problem is that they want money! So they will not give up quickly...

****,that's kinda screwed,someone needs to put an end to this.Just if we could trace their IP,but I am sure they got more computers around the country.They seem to be a lot,and I am sure it's not about 1 or 2 guys,it could be a whole gang or these rubishh hackers.
