YPP hit by DDOS
 
Over the past couple of weeks, Puzzle Pirates has been the target of a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.



Bet all you people who were whining feel like right scurvy bootyhats now.

Re: YPP hit by DDOS
I would very much like for that to be a safe bet, Kork, but we'll see. I had similar sentiments reading the announcement. It seems reasonable for the YPP staff to be fairly vague when dealing with this type of problem, but that's just my opinion.

I kind of felt like it had to be some sort of attack when I tried to check the forum and it bluescreened my whole computer.

Re: YPP hit by DDOS
As some of OOO other projects were still working during this time it was clear what was happening.

Totally understand why noone could say anything, however am a little disappointed that the only "compensation" for the time lost is extension of mystery boxes - something we need to spend cash for. Yes I understand this is not OOO fault, but neither is it the community of YPP players who have lost a lot of time on sub or badge time due to this.

We are working on ways to lessen the blow for our players who have been affected by the downtime, and we'll post more about that here as details become available.


Something tells me that the extension on the mystery boxes isn't the only thing we're going to get. . .they just need to figure out exactly what to do.

Whether or not it's over the weekend is something we just have to wait and see.

At least now the OMs can sleep without fear of death threats.

I'd like to see additional badge time as compensation even if the problems were not the fault of OOO

That would be fair.

We are disabling rent for a 14-day period on all oceans to help out those pirates whose mercantile efforts were affected by the recent downtime. Rent will be switched back on on October 3rd.


And now us shopkeepers who had a lot of lost sales also get a bit of compensation.
Thanks :-)
