What is the point of filing a report when nothing is going to be done. When multiple videos and screen shots have been submitted showing evidence of the ddoss. When you literally have screenshots of the dossers own clanmates admitting that he ddosses the server and naming him, yet the devs still do nothing. When you provide so much evidence it is beyond 100% proven who is ddossing the server and still everyday they keep logging in and doing it over and over. Why go through the trouble of making all the reports when not a ■■■■■■■■ thing is being done about it. At this point it seems the only real solution is find somebody else who can stop them since the people who are suppose to be policing this are doing absolutely nothing about it. When are you going to actually do your job for once and do something about this.
Present the evidence to Sony, they are more likely to act on irrefutable proof of a ddos attack.
Sorry for the question , what is ddos attack ?
In short, when someone overloads the server with constant bot accesses to it, to the point that the it just dies and has to be reset. It’s the most common form of attack on servers (games, websites, etc.). Often times the attacker has their own agenda like “I’m just trying to prove how garbage this server is to the company in hopes that they’ll better protect it.” Other times it’s because they like to have a penis showing contest to prove they’re cool, when in actuality, the only thing they are is a massive tool that ruins everyone else’s fun
Love the way you describe this I didn’t understand either. So it’s a mines bigger than yours on the internet scale like we didn’t have enough problems already thanks for the answer
Its a Pandora Box of info your better off not knowing…
Once you know, every-time you get disconnected or see players doing weird things. (even on consoles) you start to question everything. XD
Dosing and Kicking people is pretty much just Trolls being trolls… no reason outside being a ****.
I think most of anti-dossing measure would be on G-Portals end to set up
One more question please , if you may .
This is the reason we have so many crushes on official servers ?
It’s one if the reasons yes not sure it’s the biggest one though myself I know that gportal is bad about not doing enough server maintenance to keep them running smoothly. But to be fair when you have as many servers as they have to maintain it does get difficult to maintain them all properly. Also there’s not a lot that can be done about dossers other than banning them from the game problem with that is they just turn around make a new account and start up again. But the best bet probably would be to take the proof to Sony and inform them about it happening on PS4 since to do it you’d literally have to have some sort of hack linked to your console that would allow you to do enough bot accesses to crash a game server and to do that also violates the PSN eula not to mention void the warranty and all that on your PS. And Sony can permanently block individual consoles from accesing the PSN. It’s just rare that they will.
Unfortunately , in this section I am clearly fish out of water , all these years I play consoles for the safety they have . Thanks for the warning and guidance .I will ask a favour to everyone that can understand these actions from other players to act the Sony way . Sony Playstation world must stay safe , it is just a gaming land for people to relax by doing their hobby . These actions need axe , not feathers .
DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. Attack may render your console or computer temporarily unable to connect to the network or the internet. They’re handled by MS / Sony in regards to console attacks.
@Lucidique .Thank you .
Really , thank you .
This happens to me a lot of times and I couldn’t understand why , yet it seemed weird , because all my family had internet connection except my phone and my PS4 . I link my ps4 with an app so I will group by self phone for my controller to be free .
They tell you to report it to Zendesk which does nothing but reply with automated messages. I have sent more screen shots and videos than needed and still nothing is being done. This company is a complete joke now. They could care less about their player base or in game issues. They do nothing about ddossing, or content blocking. All they care about is money and their forums and from the sounds of the complaints from so many players it shows big time. They only way to show them we are fed up with it is to stop supporting them. Dont buy any of their games or products and maybe they will start caring about their players. They deleted 2 of my posts with 2 minutes but have done nothing about code of conduct violations for over a month. Thank you for helping prove my point funcom lol
That’s because DDoS attacks are handled by Sony / Microsoft.
if you read the code of conduct they are constantly linking to you it also states that players and clans will be banned in game, by funcom for a violation of these rules. So actually Ddos attacks in game are also suppose to be handled by funcom.
Read a post yesterday of some one trying to figure out why they were banned and seen similar so looking like people are being banned.
Yes, they do get banned.
And, that’s about all we can say about it.
when ?? 5 weeks later after the whole server is dead and everybody is wiped. So not only do you lose the cheaters who maybe get punished 2 months later but by then all your honest people have quit as well becuase they are fed up with admins allowing cheaters to run their server and destroy everything they own before anything is done.
Some one else today trying to figure out why they got banned so it’s happening. Good luck to us all.
I believe funcom is ok with ddossing now. They arent banning people for it even with screenshots of members of the clan admitting it. They expect people to try and fight against ddossers for months until they finally get around to doing something about it?? at this point the only solution seems to start cheating as well since they dont punish for it and they allow it to happen. They obviously arent going to punish for it so why not,
It sounds like Funcom does not have the manpower to investigate every call for a ddos. You must provide the evidence for them. Did you get a message with a tool you can use to show patterns of ddos attempts?
