  21. RaCio: GoT² said:

    Rumor is that Robin is actually quite a decent solly ;)

  22. Simple: [M:o:D] said:

    “don’t forget to fix dos vulnerability before the game actually stats that time :D”

    lol, its not anything you can “fix” with a patch. as long as something has an ip, it can be attacked

  28. yu: FOG - .LV said:

    Linus, you can just block all connections except allowed ips for match time.

  29. unitunitunit: (ETF2L Donator) - v|u said:

    Valve items allowed? xD

  30. ashkan said:

    Valve items mandatory ;)

  31. Koeitje: AUTOBOTS said:

    Where is this AMerican asshole Bitch everyoine is waiting on

  41. lwf: [α] said:

    Too bad about the network attacks, but I had fun anyway. :D

  42. DOUDOU said:

    @linus: ‘lol, its not anything you can “fix” with a patch. as long as something has an ip, it can be attacked’

    dos isn’t just spamming icmp requests, it can come from a very wide range of different ways
    last time, they seemed to have use a rcon auth exploit:
    Fixed a server crash caused by spamming the server with invalid rcon passwords

    this time ‘they’ seemed to have spammed pros then switch to just spam stvs :/

    ruined again :/

  43. Linus: [d¿s] - 007 said:

    of course i didnt mean just icmp. :)

  44. Arie: ( - FB - [FB] said:

    It was ok for most of us during badwater. All our relays got attacked, I think the same happened to Multiplays.

    Viqun, Sneis and Darn got flooded off the net, had to change IPs to get back online.

    Still, badwater was a lot of fun, and no cheating by the Valve team that I could tell :)

  45. hapha said:

    any STVs plx? :[
