Australian DDOS

For the past year or so a small group of players have ruined the chivalry experience of everyone in AU/NZ by hosting rank boosting servers impersonating official servers, and using a variety of DDOS like attacks to make each server unplayable as it becomes populated. I'm not clued into the details, but TB were as careless/incompetent as their reputation suggested. For whatever reasons this/these people are ruining the game, it seems very possible they will continue or attempt to continue as the community transitions to Mordhau. I thought I'd make this topic both for dev awareness as well as to perhaps see how a competent development team would deal with this issue hypothetically.

I'd assume they're not using shit Mutliplay servers like CMW did, and whatever service they're hosting the game on will have some sort of DDOS protection. That being said, you can't 100% prevent DDOS's from my limited understanding of the subject.

I remember trying to play on an Aussie server using a 4g hotspot when I was up in Darwin.
Not sure if the connection or Darwin was worse tbh :^)

I don't understand, you are saying they have hosted their own server only to ddos it? That sounds unlikely to me.

Nothing players can do if joining non-official servers and experience is bad tbh, I could run one from my laptop if I wanted...

Hopefully mordhau has a way of filtering official servers only or highlighting them in a specific font/colour.

They would make servers posing as official ones, same name, player limit .etc, but with some sort of modification that allowed them to change players ranks.
Initially it started with servers like this just labelled "Free Rankup Servers".

As of now someone actively DDOSes servers in AU, though we dont know if it's the same person.

The breakdown is, some crazy dude called Redemption wanted people ingame to 'bend the knee' to him or he would DDoS AU/NZ. They didn't "bend the knee" so he started to DDoS chivalry for like 6 months, then stopped for a month, then came back. If it continues in Mordhau, which is likely it will, Mordhau will become a waste of money for AU/NZ.

devs pls notice this forum post..

It's complete shit, i joined one of the fake servers not knowing it was fake, was impossible to tell, ever since my rank was -21 and i couldn't change any 3rd slot items on any classes.

Yeah months and months ago I was on the grind to rank 60, joined a full server disguised as an official and had my rank changed to -21 by Redemption as I'd spoken out against him before. He would ddoss all servers but his so if you wanted to play, you were in his domain. I held out for a while hoping TB would come up with a solution but of course there was none. That is when I finally lost complete interest in the game and uninstalled. I couldn't care less about chiv now but the fact he could exploit in game console and bring down community servers 24/7 has me worried just a little about Mordhau in AU/NZ.

I can vouch for this, this has been a real issue with the Chivarly AU community.

Torn Banner did not address the issue at all and the number of players went down drastically because the servers would be DDoSed almost 24/7.

Now the game is down to a handful of players who are mostly waiting on Mordhau to revive the genre.

Please if any developer reads this, we need some way of combating the DDoS attacks as I am fairly confident they will continue when Mordhau is released as whoever is doing it is relentless.

The DDoS attacks used to happen EVERY DAY for over 6 months. They still happen now but just not as often.

I wasn't familiar with the term "bogan". Had to google it.
I think every country has it's equivalent term.

I heard Sydney was overrated, had the choice between Melbourne and there pretty much for a week of leave. Took Melbourne, I figured that Sydney was the Aussie equivalent to NYC - big, full of people, but ultimately shitty

You pretty much nailed it with that comparison Jax.

Seriously though, we need to know that the Mordhau devs will actively attempt to combat the DDOS attacks.

I'm sure they will.
One more big fail for Troll Banner, but Triternion are nothing alike those cucks.

Unlike Born Tanner, Triternion cares about the health of their product and community.
