That is literally their user name. What the fuck are you devs even doing to prevent this kind of shit? I shouldn't have to fucking constantly subscribe and use a VPN. Where are your security measures? Where is your moderation? Do you even give a FUCK about the quality of your community?

That's pretty rough man. Getting mad at the devs won't solve anything but still. Pretty brutal. Hopefully the turbo-virgin behind it doesn't send a bunch of pizzas to your house.

I'm pretty pissed. Cyber attacks are a crime but unfortunately I am unable to get info necessary to report to the police. This kind of shit is just unacceptable.

You should be saying that to yourself in a mirror.

My age is non of your concern but I'd wager I am older than you. You have contributed nothing. You only come here and call me a cunt. That is the kind of thing a cunt would do. If you have nothing useful to say then shove it.

You completely forgot to explain what "that kind of shit" is...
People claim "that kind of shit" and other kinds of shit all the time.

Sooo... what exactly happened?

Developers can't do much if you're under DDOS.

How did you get ddosed if you were only in game with the guy?

I thought I explained earlier but essentially after incessent teamkilling and trolling I had massive frame drops and lag which I have never had before. He texts "Still there? :)" indicating he had done something quite fuckey. Then the software froze, eventually crashed, and I filled out a report. If it wasn't a DDOS then it was some other malicious action on his part.

Wait.. were you team killing and trolling? Or was this other guy?

I don’t mean to badger you for minor details but this seems kind of important. Not saying that DDOSing a griefer is justified, but...

I agree. It's unacceptable that this happens to anyone. Getting frustrated and mad at people that aren't responsible won't help anything. The only one responsible for it is the script kiddy behind it. Did anythiny bad actually come from this other than the DDoS?

P.sure someone wouldn't come on here to complain about being DDoS'd after being the one who was teamkilling and trolling others lol

Guess at this point I gotta ask if its even feasible to DDoS someone, even an individual specifically, through a game? Not gonna lie, first time ive heard of such. I want to say it sounds like really shitty coincidence but im none the wiser about whats possible in mordhau when it comes to its under the hood connections.

An exploit a decade ago was to try to ping the then Call Of Duty servers with a broken login request, and have it send the information to a target of choice. The server would repeatedly ask for verification it didn't get and in effect DDOSd the target's network with infinite failed requests. This exploit has since been patched but you wouldn't even need something as big as Activision to pull off the same stunt. All you need is one decent server with a similar vulnerability and you can field commercial grade attacks. Though usually people handle their services with a little more care these days, or at least they should be.

Of course that's being very fancy about it, there are much easier ways. Targeting someone in a game is feasible, but you'd be an idiot to do it.

They were. And they claimed they were colorblind and we informed them of how to change the settings to mark teammates and he of course trolled by saying "I don't see it" I tell him hit H on keyboard "I can't. I don't have it". Bull shit I say. Proceed to be continuously run down by his trolling bitch ass using a horse and spear even though we were the same team.

You didn't explain it earlier, hence the confusion.

  • The fact that your game client crashed doesn't necessarily mean he caused it. Shit happens, there are still one or two bugs in Mordhau, and networks occasionally fail (particularly at my house). Even if he did cause the problem, for which there is no evidence, there's no reason to jump to the conclusion that he used a DDOS attack.
  • Sure, he behaved badly. The "color blind" comment was particularly stupid; red-blue color blindness isn't a thing, and total color blindness is rare. Obviously you can't prove he was griefing if your game client crashes; next time, report him in the usual way and good luck.

Fair enough. Just in case I've done security upgrades. Are there any console commands I should know besides playerlist?

Some are listed here, probably not relevant to this issue but interesting to play with.
