Soon after the 1.2 update was released for Wurm Online, someone launched a DDOS attack on game’s servers, forcing the developer to put servers offline. Code Club wrote on their website that they can offer 10,000 euro for any tips or evidence that could lead to a conviction of the person behind the attack. Wurm will be offline until at least noon on February 19 (CET).
Wurm Online servers are still offline and DDOS attacker got some love on game’s forums. Gamers are unhappy as you can imagine and have nothing good to say about the attacker who remains unknown at the moment.
The patch was highly anticipated as it introduced tons of new features to the game. Players were eager to try an improved Wurm online, only to be deprived from that experience due to DDOS attack.
At the moment developers are trying to fight the attack, though their hosting company cannot help much. Latest update states that “Since we do not know how, when or under which circumstances our current hosting company want to bring our servers back online we are working on retrieving the data from those servers and put on the new planned hosting. We have the new hosting prepared but it will take a while to set it up.”
Code Club, the developer, is doing their best and will even compensate players for the downtime. If anyone has info on this DDOS attack, go to Wurm Online site and talk to developers.
Wurm online was released several years ago and got a large community. While the attacker probably thinks their actions will put players off, the effect is quite opposite. Most of Wurm players keep checking the site for news and those who never played it started getting interested into a game.
