  • A kind reminder and awareness to the community
    We've asked many times that the community to refrain from speculating who the perpetrator(s) are behind the DDoS attacks.

    I strongly advise you knock it off from now on as it's becoming a constant nuisance. Accusations based on false evidence or lack of evidence can and WILL be punishable for players.

    Any continuation of this behaviour can result in temporary bans. You've been warned...

    A Note from Genisaurus:

    Genisaurus wrote:There's no evidence that any one particular person is the culprit. Frankly, we're still compiling evidence whether or not it's even a DDoS - most of the symptoms are the same, but there is some other unusual behavior going on that makes it hard to confirm one way or another. Communication with the one or two people who might be able to say conclusively is blocked by time zones and busy schedules.

    We will let you know more as we know more.


    Well, the evidence has come in, been examined, and it's pretty clear that we are suffering a DDoS attack at the moment. Before receiving confirmation from our lovely network wizards, we were a bit in the dark: It looked like a DDoS, it walked like a DDoS, but it didn't quite quack like a DDoS.

    The problems observed by players over the last few days - when it has actually been up - have been caused by slow connections to the database. This includes things like guilds appearing to lose members, auctions seeming to disappear, characters missing, etc. The information is all there, it just isn't getting loaded properly. Now, there's a chance that this slow database connection might not actually be related to the DDoS, so we're taking the opportunity to make some much-needed improvements to our backend just in case.

    But the database aside, we're still experiencing incoming traffic roughly 10x higher than we usually do, and this is testing the limits of our bandwidth. In these conditions, we cannot operate. We're not going anywhere, but the server won't be able to be started until the attacks slow enough for us to accept the usual player traffic. The server will be available as the DDoS attacks slow, but expect it to be spotty and unreliable in the coming days.

    We do ask that our players not spend their time speculating as to whom the culprit(s) behind these attacks may be. DDoS attacks are notoriously difficult if not impossible to trace, and as such there is absolutely no evidence for any accusations beyond conjecture and circumstance. It takes an unstable and sad person to want to DDoS a private server, but the last thing anyone wants to do is to encourage other unstable and sad individuals to try to be vigilantes in our defense.

  • Changelog 27th, June 2016
    We took the opportunity to patch while the servers were dead. Here's what's new:

    [Anniversary event]

    The second year anniversary event has been extended by a week. Order now has a follow-up quest after the Slayer Chronicles Ending that allows them to pick up the cape, if they missed it the first time around. The dye quests in T1, T2 and T3 should now be repeatable and have no issues being completed. The gameobjects for both T4 event quests may continue being bugged; wait until a restart to attempt investigating the Dig Site or recovering the Slayer Heirlooms.


    [RvR Campaign]

    Genisaurus:
    - Siege weapons will now decay once deployed and unused for a period of time. Using or towing a siege weapon should reset this time.
    - There can be no more than 2 GTAoE style siege weapons spawned per realm at any keep.

    Azarael:
    - A siege weapon's owner can now reclaim the weapon when it is being towed.
    - Siege weapons can no longer be towed outside of RvR areas.
    - Fixed an issue causing players to be unable to deploy a ram if a keep was made safe.


    [Scenarios]

    Genisaurus:
    - Added cast times to the bomb/part dropoffs in Howling Gorge and Serpent's Passage

    Londo:
    -Added Khaine's Embrace scenario handler.

    [RvR Campaign]

    - Hitting a keep door with an attack that is too weak will no longer reset the safe timer.
    - A player deploying oil, a ram, or artillery will automatically be given control over that siege equipment.
    - A successful keep defense now has a random chance of spawning a gold chest, instead of it being guaranteed.
    - For a keep defense to spawn a gold chest, the outer door must have been destroyed (instead of requiring a minimum number of slain players).
