We have been dealing with ddossing for over a month now. One of our clan mates was told by funcom that they can not use PS5 messages as evidence. We literally have mutliple screen shots of a clan admitting to ddossing, threating to ddoss, and telling us the home city we live in. So if funcom isnt using blatent admittance of ddossing as evidence what are they using!!! nothing… no wonder the game is over run by cheating and nothing is being done about. This game is basically dead now.
Report them through Sony. If you have enough evidence they WILL take action.
You can also block chat members. Up until now, I haven’t had any need to block anybody. You can report the chat, through ps5, and it will give you an option to block.
It also helps to change the security settings. Anywhere it gives “anybody” permission should be changed to “friends of friends” or likewise. This makes it harder for the attacker to get your IP.
and how is this going to stop the ddossing?
Just because someone says something it doesn’t make it true.
You need to make a report through zendesk
Provide details about the times of the server disconnects.
However it is more likely that they are using an exploit to crash the server.
May I ask, have you experienced internet disconnects requiring router restarts?
Did you ever join a PS party, with those players?
If you have a fixed IP, you can contact your ISP to change it. Anybody can lookup an IP address to see where in the world is its physical location.
Reporting to Sony is different than reporting to Funcom, as Funcom points to the DMCA.
The ps has security settings to block “party” invites. Once you speak up, it’s over – they can get your IP. I won’t explain further than that. I disabled such invites.
Correct. @sestus2009 can verify that Sony takes action in these kind of situations. I don’t understand who gives info to these kids how to ruin gaming hours of other people, yet I can’t blame Funcom for Sony mistakes. We play in this console for the safety it MUST provide to the players. We pay monthly or annual for playing online with psn, so Sony is responsible to keep us safe not Funcom.
They can literally grab your IP off of the player list. That is on G-Portals side. G-Portal literally lists the IP’s of all players actively on a server. That is not on Sony. You never have to join a party chat with any stranger, they can literally pull your IP just by logging into Conan Exiles. That is on Funcom and G-Portal. Why is that Funcom makes a big deal about their code of conduct changes and the punishments if they are not going to enforce them…
that doesnt stop them from pulling your IP from the player list bruh
If they mod the ps, then maybe they can get the IP off the playlist. Again, report it to Sony if you think the ps is giving the IP away. If your ps5 automatically joins chat when someone sends you a party, it’s too late. They have it. Yes it does stop them if you change the privacy settings. Under DMCA, it is illegal to mod.
Even if they have no modded box, it is still possible to get the IP. Funcom will close the thread if I explain more about that as they have before. It’s one reason I don’t play on PC.
I’ve been dealing with another player that DDOS’s. It took awhile to get irrefutable proof. I’ve seen alpha clans turn toxic. I learned not to consider them alpha anymore. They are just toxic.
@Dzonatas, Thank you
I don’t belong to the players that has a clue about all these s… t
I just want to play
I expect Sony to protect me, no one else… Why?
I started this game by gaining it free from psn. OK I payed for some dlcs but till now for a game I play so long the money I gave to Funcom is nothing in front of the money I pay for psn these years. YET…
Funcom provides me free servers to play online… FREE
Funcom allows me to have and express my opinions, thoughts, fears, dreams, problems etc about the game and so on.
Yet, I pay Sony for that .
Anyway, this is the way I see things, maybe I am wrong, what can I say more
There are many ways to get someone’s IP. The method mentioned is the most common on PlayStation.
Let me ask again, have you ever experienced router disconnects, causing you to be kicked offline, and requiring a router restart?
Or do you get kicked from the server, and maintain internet connection?
Bruh… when you get dossed its not just the game. The whole house internet goes down.
I did not. I paid for full price for this game. I paid for the expansion. I paid for DLC’s. I was given a code of conduct multiple times with the associated punishments. I have proven beyond a doubt that a clan is continuously breaking these. Nothing is being done… That is a failure on Funcom’s side to enforce the policies associated with their game. End of story.
Ok that’s what I wanted to know. I’m fully aware of what happens, but I see a lot of posts here that claim DOS, or DDOS when it’s not.
Anyway, you need to contact your ISP. They should have a protocol for you to follow, and they should be able to help you block any malicious IPs.
They may also report those IPs to the relevant authorities. If not they should supply you with them in order for you to report yourself. Depends on local law.
Also you might want to look into using a vpn to mask your IP if this problem continues. Plenty of tutorials on YouTube but if you have problems let me know.
There are also programs such as wireshark that allow you to monitor network traffic. Again tutorials are very easily found on YouTube.
Hope that helps.
I appreciate where you are coming from and your desire to help prevent these attacks. My concern is why Funcom refuses to act on a very large amount of evidence. We literally have screenshots from multiple clan mates of theirs admitting to the ddossing and the player doing it. Many many times we would have wiped this clan but they just ddoss the server every time. The game is no longer enjoyable or playable. I believe funcom is done releasing DLC’s or anything to make money so they no longer care about the integrity of their game or their player base. If they aint gunna profit anymore why enforce their own rules. This is why this game is dying very fast yet again and will probably be dead soon. It is a complete joke.
We have contacted local authorites, sony and even the FBI. All we are asking for is for funcom to do their job and enforce their code of conduct they felt was so necessary to make such a huge hype about.
I should mention the server I am referring to is 8070. When the server is being ddossed not only does 8070 crash to a 9999 ping but also 8071. Technically every time our server gets dossed so does 8071. Every single time they both go down simultaneously. We have provided all the evidence needed to prove this but it is irrelevant. Nothing is being done.
That’s good but they won’t have any data until you contact your service provider.
If you get your ISP to provide the times and IPs of the attacks, and provide that alongside the in game evidence, that will be more than sufficient to have them investigated, and banned, not just from CE but also from PSN.
I understand where you are coming from but even if they are banned from CE they can still pull your IP. That’s why you need to contact your service provider.
They wont have anybody online to defend their base. We can finally remove these cheating cockroaches from the game. How much do you think they will be ddossing when they have no interest left. When all their buildings and possessions are gone they wont care to ddoss much anymore. All we are asking is for funcom to follow through with THEIR CODE OF CONDUCT THEY felt it was important to send everybody and make posts about but then do nothing to enforce it. If everybody just up held their responsibility on their end the problem would have been solved weeks ago.
