    Am I supportive of attacking people's server infrastructure?  No.  I'm not, no matter who you're talking about (unless maybe it's a hate group or something--but we're talking broad strokes here).  That kind of thing is not something I support, endorse, encourage, or want to see happen, and if you've ever been on the receiving end of a DDOS (I have, as a user of a small system, not on the technical end), for example, you can appreciate the inconvenience and frustration.

     

    But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't grinning over here.  Right or wrong, it's amusing as hell, and even though I can't condone the behavior of the people responsible, it's really hard not to see the corresponding Schadenfreude as genuinely karmic.

    Peace and safety.

    Cheering on hackers is like cheering on smugglers, drug lords and other criminals.

    DayZ fans should be aware that actions create reactions...

    Hammerpoint needs to go out and be annhiliated. They are the epitome of SCUM in the industry. All those that are under Sergey and work for him deserve it as well.

    Destroy ScammerPoint Studios.

    Given this company's business ethics, I would not be surprised if they were doing this to themselves in order to stir up community support.

    Free to play = content updates for the cash shop. Buy to play = content updates for the cash shop.
    Subscription = Actual content updates!

    This is pretty much how I feel. Regardless of whether or not the game was ready for release or if the developers are under fire for ostensibly "misadvertising" their game, NO ONE should wish server attacks like this. Just my personal opinion.

     

    Suzie you understate the sort of stunt they pulled.  "Misadvertising" their game is being far too generous, and since they have essentially admitted to doing such there is no need to put it in quotes.  You can say it as it is - They DID misadvertise their game.

    Regardless of the crap the studio pulled, this type of an attack should not be supported in general terms. There are always consequences for any criminal action. People keep doing this kind of crap and we will see more SOPA type bills trying to be passed in various governments around the world.

    The best way to "voice" your opinion towards companies is to vote with your wallet.

    Oh yes, because this could only be DayZ fans. There certainly aren't any disgruntled players out their that were done dirty by The War Z devs that feel that actions create reactions...

    I would imagine some are afraid to vote with their wallets in this case considering War Z devs threatened players asking for refunds.

    SOPA wasn't a bill about hacking. It was to stop sites from Pirating copyrighted properties.

    I condone these attacks against STUPID and GREEDY and MALICIOUS companies. Sergey deserves to be shut down and never develop a game ever again.

    Of course money is everything... It controls everything and everyone...

    What do you think, for what other reason could have Sergey done this scam than money?

  • AchroAchro Torrance, CAPosts: 5Member
    Another sad lie concocted by their PR interns to paint them as the victim, rather than as the villain.
  • MasterKush818MasterKush818 Canyon Country, CAPosts: 26Member
    money only controls one thing. and thats fear. happy new year and welcome to the reservation slaves.
  • TalonsinTalonsin Posts: 1,478Member Uncommon
    I dont condone this type of retaliation but I also wonder how much truth there is to this hacker claim.  To me, it is just as possible that Sergy and Co screwed up some code and are blaming it on hackers.  Just like they lied about the reason the game was removed from steam.  The whole thing is sad either way.

    It's a publicity stunt to get websites talking about the game again (any news is good news) but this time have them feel sorry for them.. these guys are ruthless.

    Nothing brings the gaming community together like a good cyber attack.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    this game is only gonna bleed money and continue to do so untill finally its going to be forced to do a kickstarter or be shut down....we can only hope.

     

    maybe they shoudnt have pissed off over 3/4 of the gaming community none of this would have happend but obviously they pissed off the wrong ppl and didnt give them a refund back.

    Why does MMORPG insist on using those fake screnshots when talking about this game. That is not representative of the game and it looks hardly anything like that. How much is Hammerpoint paying you guys?
  • zymurgeistzymurgeist Pittsville, VAPosts: 5,215Member Uncommon
    No matter what you think of the game this sort of thing needs to stop. Randoms assholes cannot be permitted to wage warfare across the intenet any time they feel like throwing a temper tantrum. It's disrupting service to thousands of people who have never heard of Hammerpoint just because they're in the path of the network traffic.
