Server under attack.

Post by AFPB » Sat Oct 28, 2017 8:10 pm

Hello.

Any admin could clarify what is the server status as of the moment?

Any actions are being taken to defend the server?

The issue is being addressed. Please be patient while the admins try to correct the situation. I know it sucks when one individual screws over a genuine community but the solution isn't just banning. I'm waiting just as much as you are to get back in the server.

It's the game itself that is being attacked here, not "the server" proper, for what it's worth. Meaning its not a matter of "lets just turn on X and Y to block this or that."

The fact that BF1942 is such an old game puts it at a real disadvantage in situations such as this, since not only were programming practices not as exploit and security conscious as they tend to be today (meaning its even more likely for exploits and poor coding situations to exist), but the game developer has no interest and won't be involved in identifying or fixing the flaw that is currently being exploited.

But we're working on the issue. Until then, the beatings will continue until morale improves.
