    Why do a bonus weekend in the midst of ddos attacks? Why not wait until all is smooth first?

    Been so long since I logged in , I honestly do not recall.oh yes Purist Darkfire is one...
    I do not think they expected this to go on, I am sure they will have the bonus weekend again, since it is the only intelligent solution.

    Not that my opinion means anything, and I sincerely don't know why I choose to post this, but i feel very let down. I played OSI back in the late 90's and early 2000's and had several characters. Several that I had taken to GM in many skills. I left the game back then for multiple reasons. Mostly because i did not enjoy the game slightly before or shortly after the introduction of the AoS content. Specifically, I had a GM tamer and such, so I was looking forward to the bonus gains in Taming this weekend. However, the entire experience left me with a negative feeling. I really wanted to love this server, I truly did (i have a 6x GM warrior and a 6x GM mage/bard). But going an hour, approximately, with little gains and a lot of lag brought back those same old burnt out feelings. I wanted to love this server... I am afraid though that my nostalgia and love for UO may be gone forever...

    Maybe they will extend the double gains after they have solved the lag issue. at least give it a chance.

    Jeez, got some tough customers here. All the fun times I've had over the years on this FREE server more than make up for the few hickups. Especially during a time when staff was trying to throw us a bone. Shit happens.

    I was a little bummed about the crystals I lost but in all honestly I stole them off of tamers at the bank and lewted them off of the people I killed. So no real loss. This afternoon I got 6 more from stealing and lewting and turned them in. Was a neat experience. I'm not sure how weekends are normally since I usually work 12-15 hour shifts(I'm currently laid up and on a lot of pain meds due to complications from a vasectomy) but I had a lot of fun this weekend. Tested out a couple new characters for murdering and they worked out well with all the people I saw/killed. I need to change a few more things with one of my characters and I'm not working next weekend either so another dbl xp weekend would be cool.

    Thanks UOF peoples, I know there is only so much you can do when your servers are being attacked by a bunch of people that should be dragged into the middle of the street and flogged with dead goats. Keep on keeping on mang.

    A few different people told me staff posted in http://discord.uoforever.com they were extending the bonus another day because of the attacks during the weekend. Is that true?

    Tried logging in Friday/or Saturday can't remember but was so badly lagged I just logged out.

    Not fair to anyone to be honest, players, staff and admin even the host who now is also getting the full brute force of being DDoSed by these nerds.

    Someone needs to DDoS their shit back and give em a taste of their own medicine, seriously this has almost been a month now of this bullshit and something needs to be done.

    The problem with a DDoS is that it's coming from multiple computers/bots. DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service, which means the packets being received are distributed among many different senders (most likely a botnet). If it's only one person ,then it's a DoS. Short of hiring a third party provider to protect their server, I doubt they have the knowledge to prevent a DDoS.

    There are some automated mitigation tools that could help, Or they could pay for more bandwidth. An increase in bandwidth may be enough to handle the excess traffic being sent their way. Without looking at their logs though it's impossible to determine the best method for them to mitigate/prevent a DDoS. Ultimately, I'd imagine their host should have some form of DDoS protection that they offer.
