Hi, have the attacks been resolved? I keep getting disconnected after a few minutes of play, then I can't connect with the game at all. This has been going on for a couple of weeks now and is getting very tiresome. Are you close to finding the source & ending the tasks? Makes doing the daily quests near impossible. I hope you get it fixed soon & permanently...I love playing the Wizard101 game.
I can't seem to log on too, it was working fine this week but today it's been acting up again. The farthest I got was "entering game" screen then it crashed, and now I can't seem to even get past the log in screen I understand KI is doing everything they can to stop these DDoS attacks, but what the hackers are doing is considered illegal. I hope the attacks die down later today, so everyone can play efficiently and smoothly as I miss talking to my friends It's been over an hour since I was able to play, but I do believe that KI will find a way to put an end to these attacks. Have faith everyone, KI will find a way!
Unfortunately a new round of DDOS attacks resurfaced today. We're taking measures to counter the attack and, therefore, many players will still be able to log on and enjoy Wizard101; however, there are still a significant number of players who will be affected.
We continue to work toward a more permanent solution. Thank you for your patience.
Wait a cotton pickin' minute This is effecting far more than one wizard in Wizard101, and probably pirates, as well, in Pirate101. How could this problem be stemming from all of us? No way! Why must KingsIsle persist in trying to put the problem back on it's players? I think there is someone in the game who has a really big problem from some wrong they feel KingsIsle has done to them. Very possibly more than one person, but what needs to be done is to go after some of your worst offenders in the game and find out who is behind this CRIMINAL activity. I myself had to deal with an agent from a well known internet computer assisting business who obviously had a personal problem with KingsIsle because he told me that the games were bad for my computer. Well, I have played these games since almost the beginning. I've never found where they were "bad" for my computer, so I knew this agent was speaking from some personal vengence he/she had. I love telling everyone how much I enjoy playing Wizard101 and Pirate101 and refuse to listen to all of those who wanna gripe about how they were banned for breaking rules. KingsIsle has made it possible for families to play together in as safe of an internet environment as can be provided. I say check your records for all those "wronged" players. That's where you will probably find your culprit. Good luck for I know that has got to be a daunting task. I support what this game does to bring about safe internet game playing for the young and old. You're the BEST as far as I'm concerned.
Same with me! I agree that there are probably people out for vengeance. I don't know why they want to bring misery to the players of Wizard101 & Pirate101. One minute, I can log in, the next I get booted out! I'm only able to play for a maximum of 20 - 30 minutes before i'm kicked out of the game. These DDOS Attacks are getting out of hand. These people who are trying to get INFORMATION from the players of Wizard101 & Pirate101. But also KingsIsle doesn't need to place this on the players shoulders. Myself, and probably several other players, have to change their passwords constantly just to help counter these attacks! Hopefully they will stop by the end of the weekend. Good Luck to KingIsle, and I stand for all of the players if they like it or not, we hope you get the job done, and the game to work again!
Your the best, and we all fully support you We hope you get the job done, and these attacks stop.
I was online until about 3pm and then I was kicked off.. I wish these people understood that a lot of others put their money into this game and it's selfish of them to ruin it for the players. I hope you figure this out soon KI! Good luck!
