After reviewing the server packets and our emails from our protection company we pay it has come to our attention that we are under a minor ddos attack that began 05/14/2021 and has been periodically running during random hours throughout this week. I guess it wasn’t noticeable til our peak playertime on Friday. Ive contacted our Server Hosting services and formulating a plan to deal with this issue. Sadly, this is a common occurrence for our server when we do major patch updates or launch advertisement. We arent sure who it is that does this when we start to do advertising or major patches but we have a general idea of where it comes from. For you players who are currently enjoying our server and/or the community,
We apologize for the inconveniences to your gameplay during this time.
What does the ddos look like when I am on the server?
You will experience one or all of the following
1. Random mapserver connection messages that will go away after a few seconds to a minute.(this is the most common)
2. Door missions not working or freezing for long periods of time
3. Character randomly becomes stuck in place almost like long periods of lag
If these issues are occuring 9 times out of 10 it is related to the recent ddosing happening.

nekkidtruth: I think most also have a habit of creating their own SG's and keeping it to themselves. I don't invite to mine because it hosts all of my alts. However I do allow access for the telepads to those on my team.
