[Resolved] DDoS Attacks June 8th and following

  • Dunno what you all are whining about but if you just load into the server directly without going through the lobby you can play fine, i've been playing yesterday the whole day and today aswell already without any issue, and no i don't use any VPN and no i don't live in russia, so mayby it's just that you want to whine...

    I was not going through lobby yesterday at all and trying direct links. Still was unable to access server.

    Yes people whine but this problem affected everyone in different ways and at different levels.

    Some people had a great time yesterday while most others did not. :|

    It works for me, so it has to work for someone else :D That's exactly how the IT world is working :D

    The problem is that it only works for those who left it on/got lucky and the browser didn't delete something that allows you to log in. I'm in the game too, but via my laptop at work, it still doesn't work at home, since this morning. And I don't live in Russia, I don't have a VPN and I whine every day that again there isn't some statement of what's going on.

    Time is a Flat Circle

    Everything we have ever done or will do, we are going to do over and over and over again.

    This is the official form for the local country where Travian Games is based.

  • Thats exactly the problem. Some people can and do still play without problems. Other have some issues.Me for example had extreme lags and lots of ignored commands in game, while having no problems connecting.
    And again others had a nice bingo in error messages through the hole day.

  • got my gold..ty

    teuton-strong thank you for sharing! I am happy to read that.




    UPDATE: Yes, there was another attack this afternoon again. That's also why there is no status in the thread name anymore: It's changing too often. We have built level 20 Natar Walls around them. That's why the direct links work if you don't log out.


    But yes, during attacks, there are issues in the lobby we are still working on. If you still cannot login, which error code do you see exactly? Or is it no error code and the loading icon on the start page before even getting to the credential window? The latter one should also be solved by now, but please share if that is not the case.


    Thank you all for sharing your personal experiences here. And a big thank you to everyone helping with explaining and answering questions.

  • What upset me is that at an important moment I was unable to play for 5 days because of an error in the game system, I opened a complaint on the forum the first time and opened a ticket the second time, this hurt me a lot, I couldn't access and when I got it the duke's treasury had fallen, the second time the king's treasury had fallen, it even looks like sabotage on the part of our enemy. I couldn't access the game and they were able to access it normally, it discourages anyone.


    How are we going to play a game where some important players in a realm are without access due to server error, and another realm accesses normally and seems to know what is happening and takes advantage of it. It's an absurdity never seen before in the 19 years I've played travian. frustrating, very frustrating to spend time in a game that has marked cards favoring some, I came to think that the admins would be playing on BBash1 and trolling the rest of the players to win it was so gross this supposed DDoS attack was. How did some continue to access normally and still manage to make attacks?

  • Good morning to you all bbash-partyhat what a nice and calm day and night it was yesterday. ilike

    yes, it was a DDoS attack. In the past special rounds, we faced other performance issues and we were always quick to admit that it was our fault. We like to be transparent with our players in our communication.


    We did a lot of measures against these kind of attacks and secured all game worlds. And we are still working on finetuning these measures, especially when it comes to protecting the lobby.


    The staff is playing on BBash1 AND on BBash2, but most of us are actually playing on BBash2. So, no, it wasn't us trolling ourselves. Players who still had access to the game worlds used the direct link into the worlds without logging out (as explained in the very first post of this thread).


    I hope this reply helps a bit in understanding what's going on.


    have a great day,


    B

  • Dear players,


    we will restore the starved troops from Wednesday, June 8, 16:00 CEST to Saturday, June 11, 18:00 o'clock CEST on ALL live worlds.


    This will be done tomorrow, on Wednesday, June 15, at 14:00 o'clock CEST so that you have time to plan your troops's crop consumption accordingly.


    Please help us spread the word and share this message in your kingdom chat.


    kind regards,

    Your Travian Kingdoms Team

  • That's a good start. Now refund all the gold bought in those servers since people lost the progress they used that gold for.

  • Dear players,


    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. <3


    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
