Cube World suffers DDoS attack.
Yesterday, our friends at Kotaku brought a bit of distressing (at least to those looking forward to the game) news to our attention. This news is that the RPG several eager gamers have been waiting to get their hands on, Cube World, has suffered a DDoS attack.
Said Wollay Funck, the game’s developer, “Initially we assumed the fault was on our side, like our download/updating system could be broken, so we closed the sale and improved our system. But it turned out that all these problems were the result of DDoS attacks. It seems that someone is trying to systematically damage us and our business. The attacks usually occur during evening/night as soon as we open our store or user registrations. The attackers obviously want to prevent us from selling our game.”
They are trying their best, however, to create a fix so that those gamers looking forward to the game won’t be disappointed for long. “”Fortunately, we can sell the game outside of the attacks without problems,” Mr. Funck stated, “and, we’re now extending our servers and team to handle the remaining issues. We don’t have an ETA for this yet.”
How fast will the team be able to overcome this attack?
