    Congestion During the Version Update: Addition N+1

    Congestion During the Version Update: Addition 5

    This is a follow-up to the previous news regarding congestion issues with the version update occurring since Jul. 19, 2005 2:00 (PDT).

    We have confirmed that there is a continuous DDoS attack underway which has hampered our efforts and slowed the recovery process.
    Our technicans are still investigating the issue and considering all possible options to bring this matter to a speedy resolution.

    If you continue to have errors during the version update, please wait a while and try again later.

    We deeply apologize for the inconvenience.
    Yeah, it's called "A million players mashing the 'Retry' button over and over and over".

    I made it as far as the "Version update available" screen once, but I accidentally clicked "Back".

    POL-1160 for the win!

    Gilsellers are probably pissed that their cash-cow NM's were raped.

    Heh just would of popped an POL message. I got to 70% booted and now when I get to the screen and it checks files it will just boot me. Its just bullshit. Probably gotta wait 12-24 more hours just to finish it.

    When I got in Gilgamesh, there were about 270 players, 36 of which were Japanese players in the Aery.

    lol, the funny thing is, I bet Killuminati claimed responsibility. He always does when Bismarcks AH and /sea functions go down

    About an hour ago I managed to connect and start downloading perfectly normally. Either the DDoS attack stopped, Square got their act together, or I'm just extremely lucky... Anyone else noticing this? Or am I just the last one in line?

    No they did not. I DLed the remainder this morning while I was getting ready for work, and it took me 1.5 hours to DL 272 or so files on my DSL.

    Although I actually did mange to finish the update, that was a ridiculous amount of time.
