we are facing another DDoS attack since yesterday. We highly suspect that this is done by a professional party that earns money by selling game bots. We will continue to ban these bots, and these attacks demonstrate that we need to be even stricter with fighting bot usage.
@all: If you know any websites that sell bots for Travian Kingdoms, please report them to us via Help Center. Please share in the ticket all the information you have, such as receipts or a screenshot of your bank account statement, if you purchased a bot. We are gathering all the information to forward to the Public Prosecution Service.
Our developers are working on protecting our gameworlds against these attacks, but there is no premade fix against DDoS attacks. Some of you linked to websites that offer help against them. I know it’s well-meant, and we appreciate your openness to help, but these services don’t support anything our developers already do.
We are sure that more attacks are coming. Therefore, please follow these two steps to get access to your gameworlds:
- Don’t use the red “Go to lobby” button to log out of your gameworld (close the window instead).
- Bookmark the direct link to your gameworlds, for example: bbash1.kingdoms.com, bbash2.kingdoms.com or com4.kingdoms.com.
We will restore all starved troops as soon as this attack is over. We cannot, however, restore defeated troops from attacks. We also won’t give any compensation because we don’t want to encourage anyone to do these kinds of attacks in the hopes of getting compensation.
Thank you for your understanding,
Your Travian Kingdoms Team
