    Default DDoS claims...

    So i'm curious how this is a DDoS when we have 2 accounts (housemates account),same connection,1 affected with strange teleports,the other account is fine.

    tried a different connection,both accounts,mine is still broken,other is fine.

    Do I have to post more video's?

    There's ongoing DDoS attacks every hour of every day, it's when it targets big Companies or affects the ISPs hosting these Companies that you, the normal user, gets the trickle down effect.

    For example, the latest Companies to suffer attacks are those dealing with this virtual curency Bitcoin and other such virtual currencies, hit those exchanges hard enough and you can "influence" exchange rates

    researchers warned this week that the increased valuation of bitcoin has led to it becoming one of the top 10 most targeted industries for DDoS attacks. On Monday, Bitfinex said that its services were disrupted by a DDoS attack. On Thursday, Coinbase warned that the explosion of interest in digital currencies was creating “extreme volatility and stress” on its systems

    you think I misunderstand what a DDoS attack is?

    I think you misunderstand that 2 computers from the same connection disproves the DDoS as an issue. Did you not read the fact i've tested this in all scenarios?

    You do realise that when you connect to theTrion server farm it's not a direct one to one connection, you pass through multiple nodes, switching stations, no guarantee both computers even use the same route, all it takes is one node under heavy load and one route to get blocked there while the other connection uses a different route and it's a clear run.

    i'm well aware.

    maybe you should stop trying to explain 'how the internet works' to those who already know.

    spoon much?

    Well seeing as you know so much, i'm sure you know how to run a trace to the Trion server farm and see if any of the nodes along the way are blocking you, timing out or have extremely high pings.

    For example i just ran one from here in Europe to NA servers:

    Right click Windows start button, choose either Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin), any of the two will work

    now type in this or copy and paste it from here:

    North America:

    tracert 208.94.26.5

    Europe:


    tracert 193.105.173.1
