Servers being attacked?

Top 3 servers appear to have been attacked and down to 0 population.

SiMPLE disappeared from server list for a while and is still down.
aX was at 9999 ping for 3-4 minutes - way too long to be just a map change. It's back up now.

We (MoonGamers) likely got DDoS'ed - we went down twice tonight. First time we were at 40 population, 2nd time (we somehow came back) at 20 population. First attack happened around 11PM EST on the 18th and 2nd attack happened around 12:15 AM EST on the 19th.

As of this post, MoonGamers and SiMPLE are still down.
The US DC server (EA117) was also hit and is currently down.
TGE seems to be the only one that was not hit today.

Re: Servers being attacked?

Yes, they're hitting us again this morning. All of us. We're helping each other out getting the servers seeded back up, and I sent tuia a PM with some information on the attacker.

We need all BF1942 servers to survive! It's only with variety that this game will continue to live. smile

Re: Servers being attacked?

Did the attackers target RtR+SW server ? We just experienced lots of lag, all players at the same time, starting a couple of minutes ago, while keeping reasonably low ping.

If there's any way to help, feel free to tell.

Edit : now it has stopped.

Re: Servers being attacked?

I didn't see the RTR/SW server being hit last night. It was the SiMPLE main server, aX, and MoonGamers all being down at the same time. We are still down, SiMPLE was just hit again but they're back now.

Re: Servers being attacked?

They apparently had a token attack once this morning, on a low population. Moon and SiMPLE have been hit multiple times. Our attacks last approx one hour each. We're just hopping across the pond whenever our server is being attacked. wink

Re: Servers being attacked?

I am not 100% if TGE was actually attacked, but I did see them decline significantly in population earlier today which certainly points to an attack.

If you look at the graph there's no '0' period, but that doesn't mean they weren't crashed.

Re: Servers being attacked?

...

Due the problems on the servers i changed the Map on "Arkos's Server" to Bocage, (idle Map) and next is BoB (Objective Mode).

45 Minutes, enough Tickets.

...

I just changed the Maplist to maps which all people have. (Except, Berlin, Stalin, Omaha, Wake and Midway).

El Al CTF Carrier Dogfight Mode is still active and in the list, but not set as idle Map.

Ofc. all the other maps are original, means no server side mods.

...
