    That is correct.

    Oh snap, it is indeed a post by a Carbine person. That sucks, lol.

    Come on, because a DEV is posting it, it got to be true. (wake up)

    This is just a normal MMO launch (headstart) with the "normal" problems.

    Yes, the servers are under a DDOS attack.

     

    All of us trying to login are DDOSing the login server.

  • i_own_ui_own_u Posts: 313Member Uncommon
    It makes sense...because NOBODY is online. If there were 20% of the people trying to get in online, I get it. But there is nobody...DDOS makes complete sense.

    You really think they don't know the amount of people whom bought the headstart.

    NCSoft account servers are the weak spot in the Wildstar infrastructure. If I were to DDoS something that would be exactly the spot.

    DOn't think I've ever seen this happen on a launch day before, it certainly is a crappy thing to do.

    I guess the WoW devs aren't happy with the Wildstar launch.. :P

    Yea, MMO head-starts, launches, whatever - are hard enough to keep running smooth as it is, but this totally sucks.

    I feel bad for Carbine.

    As long as it is an attack and things work smooth after the fact, I don't think they have much to worry about.

    UPDATE: "Edit: 00:45 PDT I've heard from a few folks it's a confirmed DDOS attack (real time updates, may change, fog of war, etc.). Partially handled. Servers taking in some players now, player counts rising. Ninjitsu continues."

    Idk, but these guys look suspicious.
