Albion Online wings a week of extra time at players for DDOS disruptions

Albion Online emerges this week extremely battered and bruised after a prolonged series of DDOS attacks against the game and even demands for ransom payments by the perpetrators to make it stop.

Hopefully it’s in the past now as the studio has taken steps to shore up the game’s defenses. For players who found themselves bereft of a game experience, Albion Online is gifting some extra subscription time as compensation. All players who have been subbed between July 17th and August 11th will get an extra week of game time credited to their account (this is on top of an additional week of subscription gifted for launch issues).

“Properly defending against well-executed DDOS attacks is a very challenging task, and far harder than a quick Google search might suggest,” the team posted. “In close collaboration with leading experts in the field, we are making significant progress. Recent attacks have impacted the server’s performance, but generally were not successful in bringing it down. Our defenses are constantly being optimized and fine-tuned. Having said that, we are not in a position to give the ‘all clear’ just yet.”

seems these guys are waging a war with bliegerent gold farmers that are retaliating against their anti rmt effforts.

generally my rhetoric would be that game devs are kind of dicks for their monetization design pushing gold sales but honestly once you learn a few tricks nevermind the starter packs (base pack included) you can have a very nice warmachine going for yourself and the gold they sell is cheap af.

so in this case i’m not only going to side with teh developer on their solid consumer friendly gold sales regime, i’mma blast the rmt farmers for detrimenting the game for everyone including their own customers because theyre but hurt an mmo company that is good to their own consumers is dealing with them effectively.
