Hi there,

 

You have my sincere apology.

 

I can assure you that we have in fact been DDoSed nonstop since early January.

This has been a very humbling experience for me. We never saw anything like this in 2018.

One day right after New Year, we hit nearly 1300 concurrent. Something I hadn't seen in months.

And the very next day we got hit nearly every 30 minutes with the largest attacks I've ever seen.

Additionally they did something new that our previous protection couldn't block.

 

Since then we've had the occasional 12 hour break here and there, but for the most part the attacks keep coming on Jericho.

We are working with our providers to get the situation cleared up as quickly as possible.

 

Thanks,
Matt

So many people are treating LO like they've done absolutely nothing. Cmon. Sure, your feelings are hurt, but calm the fuck down already and show these guys the respect they deserve.

boggles my mind that there are some people out there who still seem dedicated to shutting down APB, they really must have some life issues for this to be an important task for them to complete.

i reckon its Rockstar, only logical explanation, they dont want APB to succeed under new management and eclipse GTA, because if APB works, then FE will work and it has a sort of post apocalyptic wild west theme, so can pull away the RD lot.

Good luck and power through these DDoSsssesss i don't play often any more, but when i do, i still enjoy the game.

i dont think rockstart would ever need to worry about 400 ppl playing other games, but yeah fun fact haha.

 

and yeah maybe its a small DDoS provider that wants to give propaganda or whatever, just people that has nothing to do, and they can do it. Very sad.

I doubt FE has the base to make that happen, On the other side amazing would be if LO made a "character" account that involves the full APB customisation and then creates games that pull a characters customisation from there either in the way APB does or exporting the whole skin and model as such.

they could add horses from FE to APB :3 (and the quad too maybe)

Like how minority ethnicity in America owns the majority of media conglomerates?

 

Is it really a conspiracy if it is factually true though.

Is it racist to point out that statistics show that a minority in America commit the majority of violent crime?

Woah. Why did you just assume it was people who live in ghettos? I never said the ethnicity directly. You just assumed it. You're the big racist here.

My personal frustration is that I get limited gameplay time and each of the last 5-6 times have been cut short by bad performance. This equates to loss of Premium time which equals an actual cost to me for nothing

 

I have mentioned this before and I always get responses from the usual people that live here in this forum, but it is how I feel and I believe LO should address this, regardless if they are at fault or not
