hi ugar, are you still having this problem? nothing on the server has changed that would affect your ability to host so possibly it was related to the attacks on the server & could be resolved now. let us know

Mouse's server right now, has a whole 23 users online currently. My question is, why is that? Do people just stop playing the game because they don't want to click a couple more times before they log in? Are they anti backup servers?

I'm going to go with, a lot of people don't know about the backup servers, but that is just my assumption. How well do we advertise or show people what to do when the server is down?
it's likely that they don't know to switch, yeah. i've written various guides about things like this, e.g. http://en.war2.ru/support/switching-to-backup-server-if-main-server-is-down/ but most active players never even look at the website.

Is it ever posted on the home page or forum when the main server goes down? Are there bots on the other backup servers telling people where to go? Something just doesn't make sense here and I'm curious what you guys think.
generally no, aside from the threads regular users make to report outages, since i'm the only one who updates the various websites. it would definitely be smart to have some kind of SOP to follow when the main server goes down but the problem is there's currently no central hub that people know in advance to check when it happens. we have a ton of different platforms that people use (forum, website, discord, twitter, 2 facebook pages, 1 facebook group, etc) and no easy/convenient system in place to cross post updates to them. that's just another symptom of the larger problem that the whole war2.ru project is horrifically unorganized, understaffed, & spread out over multiple badly-coordinated independently operating websites/platforms. ive made attempts to improve these things but i have a finite amount of time & it's not encouraging when i'm essentially working on them alone.

Side note: Mouse, maybe you can answer this. Why does your server not get spammed?
as far as i can tell the only reason mine is still running is because whoever is doing these current attacks is singling out war2.ru specifically. i dont think the server war2.me is hosted on has any special ddos protection, it's gone down multiple times before during past attacks.

np, it wasn't actually mentioned on the ss page so i just added a note there about it

« on: October 04, 2018, 12:13:29 PM »
They can't stop themselves from reading the posts here and responding here when their names are mentioned.

frankly this goes both ways. the only thing babyshark & tupac are for-sure guilty of here is leaving bait that everyone is unable to stop themselves from taking. banning them doesn't solve anything, it just makes you all feel slightly better about the fact that ru is getting straight-up owned and we're powerless to stop it. sure whoever is attacking the server is a huge weirdo creep, but in all honesty it's not a very strong attack & it's only been possible because ru is a dilapidated pile of crap with no systems in place for dealing with it, no chain of command, no way to delegate access, etc. the way the server is running now is untenable & this is a wake up call to that fact, we can either pull together as a community to deal with it or continue to shove our problems under the rug & pretend that's going to solve anything.

instead of all this gratuitous name calling & finger pointing, why dont we instead discuss pooling resources & finding a real solution?

i think it's clear that what is needed is to 1. update to the latest version of pvpgn which will immediately give us a lot more features/options, especially to control spam registrations 2. get more access to more people to maintain & run the server, or if that's not possible set up a new collaborative development server that can eventually replace the current one, 3. get access to war2combat to people other than iL, who's greatly diminished level of involvement makes it impractical for him to continue operating as the sole project overseer. (Cel has even suggested the possibility of making everything open source to allow more contributions from more people, & more eyes to find and address exploits). there's lots of things we could be doing to deal with this, but as usual everyone is waiting for someone else to do them & thus collectively no one is making a move.


I sont think she's trolling.. I think she is so disconnected from reality she is blind to it..

but none the less, nothing productive will ever be accomplished by attempting to have a meaningful discussion with Babyshark .. she literally has some serious emotional/psychological issues, and were all aware of it

i agree that there's clearly no point trying to engage in anything approaching a reasoned, facts-based discussion with babyshark & it should be obvious to people by now that they should stop wasting their breath.


www.war2usa.com has been attacked over 7000 times in the last month. We are under heavy attack. Someone doesn't want us to play W2 somewhere else for whatever reason.



all wordpress websites experience ongoing brute force attacks on the default login page by bots that exist & constantly crawl the internet for solely that purpose, every wp website ive ever set up has similar statistics. it's not equivocal to the sort of attacks that have been happening to ru's pvpgn server

Like what? Moving threads because he has a secret crush on babyshark and being a bad admin dont count.
What crush? I'm happy in a great relationship! My women takes great care of my children. I am more then grateful. I'm still curious about babyshark whipping your ass. Please explain. Were you on drugs, drunk, 20 minutes of sleep or what!?
omg i'm starting to think tupac really does have some kind of crush on babyshark, he was in such a hurry to counter the accusation that he didn't even realize it wasn't directed towards him  ;D

sure, i moved it to the tournaments section. i moved a bunch of old tourney threads into that section a while ago & iirc claw made a troll post with the same title as one of your pball tourney posts so maybe i just grabbed the wrong one when i was moving them.

Its been brought to my attention that Tupac has been dos'ing things in some sort of effort to push a server he has been making.  Is there truth to this.  Do I need to intervene to straighten this out or whats up with the status page and AH not functioning properly due to server not responding.  I dont keep up on the forum goings on but I do play every once in a great while and its been mentioned a few times in some games that he's been misbehaving along with Babyshark?  This doesnt seem to fit the behavior pattern/personality I've seen with Babyshark in the past.

There is no actual proof tubac is doxing the server.

However one day after pming dozens of users to "come play on the new American server," we get doxed hard.
So in that sense it does look very suspicious.
well it was a bot attack to start, then iL disabled account creation but the server still seemed to be having problems, so maybe the attacker began to ddos? not sure, the status page & some other features went down several days ago but the server itself was still running & usable. the website has also been getting what looks like a wimpy ddos since friday afternoon (that's what's causing the 508 errors on forum).

i think what's going to have to end up happening here is some kind of combined effort to upgrade the war2ru server & shore up its defenses + delegate more access to running/maintaining it since iL just doesn't seem to have the time anymore (not sure if anyone ever notified him that the status page etc went down though)

also @tora, ddos = attack on the server, doxx = exposing someone's personal info
