  1. It's a fair point. I believe that right now giving time and spending it with us on IRC is the best kind of donation that can be done if one is able to program. Money helps and is always welcome to support the hosting fees. Yeah it was a nice patch, but IIRC in the current version it doesn't work on Windows. Maybe someone will take it on in the future. We're working on https://code.wildfiregames.com/D3184 to make it harder to get IPs it won't solve everything of course, but it might make things a little better. There is also

  3. Update: added Macedonia 24 - Gaugamela (331 BC) The final showdown between Alexander and Darius is at hand. A much smaller (but much better trained) Greek and Macedonian army meets the much larger Persian forces near the village of Arbela. Darius has gathered forces from all corners of the empire, including Indian war elephants and cavalry. He rides in his chariot flanked by his most trusted soldiers as well as Greek mercenaries. As Alexander, you are in charge of the companion cavalry, as well as a few other elite units. A small force of Egyptian warriors has also decided to follow

  4. Do not split community with different lobbies ;/. A lot of players in 0ad but not enough for multiple multiplayer lobbies.

  6. Can confirm he couldn't rejoin. I was using mobile data and stun which makes ddosing the host (me) more hard/ineffective so he probably went for @Grapjas. I recommend people to use mobile tethering with data enabled for when playing a 0ad game as it seems to deter the attacker.

  8. Being Ddos'd into oblivion as we speak. Was playing in @nani 's game. The usual thing, can't do anything for a few mins outside of 0ad too. Cannot even connect to the lobby for a good while even though internet works again. Network showing spikes too. commands.txtmetadata.json

  9. Highly likely the attacks are manual with the person idling in chat on one of the accounts. I believe game time vs idle time in the multiplayer lobby should be monitored. Players who have extensive idle time in relation to games should be kicked and/or banned from lobby. I mean like 12-24 hrs online without starting and/or playing a game. Maybe this could be "nullified" if players are vetter somehow such as the application to be a dev/contributor. Around/after 10:00 pm U.S. Easter Time a lot of this subsides and you can play games. This sort of supports the theory that the attacks a

  10. 1. Multiple hosts and players with hardware or software monitoring were able to see extremely high loads unrelated to the game itself, happens only when playing 0ad. Most notably one can see on aforementioned Dizaka thread. 2. Regular connection issues 3. Extremely high load when playing 0ad, sometimes shutting off all of the user's networking. 4. Good question, I'd like to see that. The best way is to have hardware monitoring capabilities, though some seem to have been able to track via tcpdump 5. Same as above, still not fully described, but Dizakas insights are relevant here. 6. .

  11. 1. That's a good question, it seems attacker sends packets that look like NTPv2 packets so pattern matching on that could help but they can change approach. No extensive (public) investigation on the attack was performed yet AFAIK tho. 2. It can, as I said on short term a tutorial on how to defend yourself is one short term attempt. Unfeasible though for non technical-savvy players.

  12. I feel like one of the obstacles to donating is the lack of direction, it is kinda unknown, one feels uneasy to donate when you don't know exactly how that will be used. Sure, server for bots, site, SSL certs maybe etc. but at least having a defined goal for the future and how that money could help would be nice. This is both a good and bad example, a donation encouraging a change but at the same time that change becoming stale (a much needed one btw): https://code.wildfiregames.com/D1746 If it encouraged the team to make a change to the infrastructure that not only mitigated DoS at

  14. > Is there a way to make some functionality to deregister from lobby after game starts? That could help. This is possible, in fact it is even possible to hack some naive way into the A23 lobby. Note to someone coding it: make sure dropped players can return. Late observers maybe less important. @badosuto do this one needs to adapt the lobby bots: only send the games which satisfy certain conditions to the clients. To actually implement it in the lobby, we should update the lobby bots we run. I am not able to do this but I guess user1 can (and otherwise I can ping other ppl). I think th

  15. From your graphs, it looks like the router is being overloaded with packets, not necessarily bandwidth. A million tiny packets on a home router would still starve it. All this need in an interface to do. Alternatively, proxy the requests done through the lobby. That way, the DDoSer would need to connect to the host before he can get a public IP. Basically, don't advertise public IPs, just relay them to the actual host when they want to connect.

  16. To an extent this won't work if your ISP provides a public IP. DDOS is performed on all/random ports. Goal is to choke the pipe to prevent any bandwidth from getting out. It's a sufficient choke of the bandwidth to bring down a 200 mbit connection. @aixo

What's the point of not counting matches where the opponent has left - since more than x minutes - as won? On the chess website Lichess it goes like this, it's essential rule on the site. Shouldn't it also be applied here? commands.txt

  21. 1) Kristian solo disconnect. Either a potatoe for a PC or ... . Previously, and in general, his potatoe PC doesn't have issues with his games. 2) Kristian/Cesar duo disconnect. Game ended afterwards. No sure if Cesar/Kristian or other team was winning or whether it was close to end of game. Was banned by Phyzik for being a silent spec. Don't have replay on what happened.

  30. Actually waiting for them to call me. I know if I call them it's not a problem really and won't take it seriously. If they call me then they'll take it seriously and at least have a record of this in their system. If whoever is doing this lives in the USA they have the CFAA to worry about. Currently still needs offline. Back online 5:40 pm eastern time.

  31. Lagged out around 4:55 Eastern Time. Logs again show a spike in traffic. Honestly, no idea who it is. This was from a game lobby as randomid started hosting. However, the spikes don't appear to be random/unintentional and are related to 0ad. Game chat provided below to list players inside the lobby. Note, I haven't reset my public IP so I can be bombed even if the person is not in 0ad.

  34. Specing a game. Players were felixix, Rauls, Ivayo_Uzunov, ffm, PhyZic, thankforpie, eskro141, Edwarf Host was randomid. Specs were Issh, Carthage, Myself. First disconnect was Rauls. Rejoined game. Had a conversation w/ Phyzik (approximation below): Me: First blood at min 18. Him: Happy? Me: No, can you smile for camera? ......... disconnect. Checking logs .... This was around 4:00 pm Eastern time, US time. (Courtesy jab: Phyzik's allies resigned.)

  35. Looks like his router's dashboard I think. I don't think so, the windows default thing suck big time and is almost useless beyond seeing why a download is being somewhat slow.

  37. Well, call your ISP I guess. They are supposed to prevent DDoS attacks. (I guess that's dependent on the ISP, to be fair, most analytics will ignore a few gig spikes). I expect all of them to give you a comprehensive report upon request though. Or just run wireshark locally and see where it's coming from. Sure thats not a download or something? those graphs show a very wierd DDoS attack, it instantly falls of a cliff.

  45. Looking at my traffic logs for today (don't have previous logs, unfortunately) I can see that my networks gets hit with a lot of traffic in a short period of time. This is the WAN port on my router. I believe at around 6:00 I was in a game lobby trying to play with bbleft and bonescape(sp?) I couldn't play as my whole internet connection went out again. Note: The traffic is over a time period of 20-25 minutes.
