really cool looking map! dled it & hope to get some games in soon :}
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?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.
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?
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.
They can't stop themselves from reading the posts here and responding here when their names are mentioned.
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
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.
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 himLike 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!?
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).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.
