Trion deals with DDOS attacks while ArcheAge dives into its Maelstrom update

Trion Worlds is reporting “intermittent” attacks on its Dallas hub over the last day that are causing connectivity issues for some of its online games, such as ArcheAge and Trove. The team is working with the local ISP providers to counter the attack and stabilize the servers for play.

“Please keep in mind that DDoS attacks are all too common and, for the most part, they don’t impact gameplay,” Trion said. “Our network engineers have setup substantial protections that allows us to mitigate the vast majority of these types of attacks. Without these efforts, taken by all game companies, any game under an attack such as this would simply be offline.”

It’s especially important for this to be resolved for ArcheAge, as today is the official launch of the game’s Maelstrom update. This patch contains a new raid organizational system, a non-RNG gear upgrade system, cross-server arenas, title collections, a redesigned folio, limited-time events, and the introduction of the Bloodsalt Bay naval combat arena.

“Please keep in mind that DDoS attacks are all too common and, for the most part, they don’t impact gameplay,” Trion said. how can it not impact gameplay when the players are getting dropped offline?.

Rather people who don’t. Which would be more fitting….by far.

Stay classy, random internet snobs. We’ll try not to bump your pedestal on our lowly way to play the games you feel are beneath you.

Sounds like the script kiddies crawled out from under the rocks they were under, got pissed off about something (anything) and went on a DDOS bender.

That’s exactly what happened. The script kiddies have been upset at some changes in Trove a few weeks ago, and although there are a couple of things they have a right to be upset about (in that Trove update Trion took a few things away from players who earned them in the past, a really silly and ignorant move), this isn’t really the right way to go about showing that displeasure.

It’s been causing a lot of disconnects in Trove too quite often. The earlier attacks stopped but they started back up again over the past few days.

It’s absolutely upset script kiddies, and yet at the same time the Trove Devs really did do some stupid things. So I’m conflicted a little bit this time.

I still wouldn’t condone DDOS attacks as they affect far too many people other than the ones they’re upset at, but I do understand why they’re doing it this time at least.

Rift was hit last night. Infrequent (one every 15 to 30 minutes) disconnects, sometimes coming back to back.

And it was happening to several folks as well.

Other than a few times though it was a minor nuisance at best.
