“It was late Saturday night and our servers were being pounded with another round of DDOS attacks (distributed denial of service attacks). It had been going on since Thursday afternoon. Well, technically, it goes on all the time. They say you hit it in the big leagues when you’re popular enough to have groups of haters out to get you. Apparently, we have been in the big leagues for over a decade. Over the past year we have taken a three pronged approach to mitigating DDOS attacks. Because of this, players do not notice most of them at all. They are literally happening all the time.”

That’s pretty rough. These people are really nice too and are a really decent company, and they still are hammered non stop by this stuff. The people doing these attacks are criminals and they suck :P
