Portalarium’s Shroud of the Avatar – HACKED

Posted on

suspect-ddos-attack

 

Shroud of the Avatar services have been under constant disruption now for about a week. This has had a great deal of impact to all of their services including the “pre-alpha releases” themselves, with players unable to contact Support, play the game, or use the forums. They are keeping it quiet for the most part, but they have indicated they suspect a DDOS attack. Again this just goes to show how old school these guys thing, host the stuff and don’t use CloudFlare.

GG.

On top of that, either through the same mob or just a coincidence their forum is currently hacked and under attack as well.

I was hoping that while this was happening I could sneak in a few shots at Junior Moderator Mystic(more to come later) but no such luck. Grand Wizard Darkblade was actually on the job.

      I believe the bulk of it was earlier in the week. The past few days have been laggier than usual, though I suppose that could be the unoptimized pre-Alpha!

    Although I know that your site is supposed to be sarcastic trolling, I would recommend not overexaggerating what actually happened (e.g. “week” vs 3 actual days, “hacked” whereas it was a some DoS and some spambots, “all of their services” vs it only being the website, “constant” vs the clearly outlined hours by the team), and *then* admitting in your own comment section that it was just “laggier than usual”.

    Megafail.

      Well one thing you should know from this place, sarcastic trolling or not, is that you really can’t take Port’s word for anything at all. If you are going by your own observations, congratulations, you weren’t effected as badly as some. /medal.

      They say 3 days? Make it 6. They say website? No, people were actually unable to log into the game on top of the forum/website also. Yes this past week has been laggier than usual, attacks aside or not, how would I know the cause. As for constant, yeah well the issues combined formed to provide a constant issue most of the week.

      But yeah, opinions are like assholes, everyone’s got em!

        Thanks for approving my comment, it shows that you have integrity, as you bash portalarium for censorship every once in a while. I appreciate that. Also thanks for admitting that your article is based on speculation, as you don’t trust portalarium’s worth.

        But… with all respect, your comparison of assholes and opinions is a bit flawed: Would you admit that you have strong opinions? I guess you would, which is fine, but does that mean your sphincter can crack macadamias? I don’t think so. But if it can, chapeau!

          I have no reason to censor, only to help prevent spam as SotA seem incapable of doing 😛

          Speculation? Opinions? The forum is still under attack this very second:

              lol bro, I don’t have time(or photoshop) to fake it. Tell you what though, I’ll flip a coin.

              Heads: I will take whatever suggestion you wish for me to prove it when more of these pop up in the forum.
              Tails: Go fuck yourself.
