Let me share with you the current status of w3arena. After a painful week the DDoS-attacks against the server is over! There are no more problems in joining the server and the games.
By the way, if it happens again, we made some upgrades regarding this:
- The server is permanently online with 12 hostbots;
- If the server is under attack, it will be hard to connect but still possible. All you need to do is to push the "Battle.net" button a few times. You should be able to connect to the server after several attempts. We are still working to improve the logins problem;
- Once you are connected to the server, it won't crash and you won't get disconnected when it is under attack;
- If the hostbots are under attack, it will be hard to join a game. You might get join bugs, but you won't lose the game due to that! It's the same as logging to the server, you have to search again until you can actually join the game.
Also, let me remind you about the ongoing ladder competition W3Arena Season 1 The top 10 will be posted every 2 weeks. Hope to see you on the battlefield.
Happy gaming to eveyone!
