      I've experienced and dealt with some DDoS. They are a real pain in the ass. These days you really need to know a thing or two about security when it comes to guarding whatever service you put out there.
      This is old news and supposedly resolved almost 2 years ago through increased security measures.

      Well, i'm not going to argue that. I'm just saying that they might have invested in solutions. It's hard to tell for us players. DDoS attacks can be bought easily, as an product on the inter/darknet. Some solutions - such as i.e. Cloudflare Spectrum as suggested - might not be as efficient as others. I'm sure that might be a fine service, I'm just saying that there is two sides to this. Also take in consideration that each attack could have had different magnitudes. There is nothing that money can't buy when it comes to these things.

      It's easy, and to my honest opinion a tad unfair to say that they do nothing. While we know for a fact that they are working on it as we speak.

      You seem pretty ignorant as to what ddos protection really is so let me teach you. Additional security measures typically mean buying an affordable protection plan from a third party to help vet all incoming traffic to your website, the amount of protection you get is dependent on how much you are willing to spend for it, as a result, they probably got a plan to deal with medium/weak ddosing issues. The problem is that larger attacks (usually done by a botnet) can differ in huge amounts depending on how much someone wants to pay for access to a bot net (companies like microsoft and even government websites have been ddosed for multiple days before), so to say it's "Resolved" is completely wrong, what they did was add additional security (think of it as adding another layer of protection), but in this case the attack got through all the layers they have to work with. The only solution is realisticly to block all incoming traffic from specfic addresses that are coming from the botnet attack.

      Hey everyone,

      For the past 45 minutes we have been experiencing issues with the server which causes lag and frequent disconnects. Based on our traffic data, we are suspecting a DDoS attack.

      Our developers are working hard on resolving the issue and we will keep you updated here.

      Thank you for bearing with us.


      UPDATE:
