A big THANK YOU for sticking with us through this rollercoaster ride. This second wave of DDoS attacks is now defeated. Some of you with tech-background have probably noticed already: We have invested in better DDoS protection and are using Cloudflare now as a host. We know that this company is currently the most popular company when it comes to protection against cyber-attacks and several of you have suggested this to us, as well.
Switching hosts did cause some side-effects like Lobby Gold was not immediately transferred after a game world ended or you might have seen wrong raiding limit due to the same IP in reports. Those errors are fixed already, and our game worlds are stable since Saturday afternoon.
That is why we have restored the starved troops by now. We know, it’s not much compensation. As we said right from the start: We cannot do any more compensation, otherwise we would invite copycats to do the same.
We are hopeful that these investments were the right move to improve our protection long term and to secure stable game rounds.
Thank you all for your great understanding,
Your Travian Kingdoms Team
Well I'd argue that refunding the bought gold would not encourage anyone to do DDoS since you are not gaining anything but it is what it is, good to hear that you teamed up with cloudflare.
