oh and here I was of the opinion (after spending a few moments on the forums) we ARE dealing with a salty basement dwelling neckbeard greaseball with a buttmad boner...Wonder what his mom will think when outgoing CC account movements show some thousand dollars being moved to China

Best way to defend against a DDOS is to first understanding how they work. Which 90% of the population who play this game don't. How many DDOS threads do we need?

Whitelist registered users IP addresses - deny all other connections to the game server.
This would require all users sending in their IPs - imo this is well-worth the time and effort.

Most of the users have static IP addresses - you can also add safe IP ranges. List should be built step by step. Obviously this would not be the perfect solution for everyone, but at least it'd be a solution, if it works :)

And make the DDOSer pay for it !
Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrᵻkɔər/) is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek, petra, meaning "stone", and ichor, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.

If the connection reaches the acceptance/rejection stage on the target machine, the attack has already succeeded, correct?
