The fact that your here acknowledging the problem is good enough for me. If your working on that awesome, i can understand these sorts of attacks are hard/near impossible to prevent, exp on such a large scale. Their pretty much using the system the way it was made, just at a scale that prevents everyone else from using it at the same time. Kinda hard to change how the internet works.

But i have a question, how long have you been working to prevent these attacks and how long until we as players can feel safe about playing ranked games again. TBH i was in my first ranked game of the season tonight and was D/Ced half way through the game. Doesnt really make me want to try another anytime soon ya know. Any kind of time frame would be awesome although i know your not going to have one because i guess you cant know when youll figure it out.

The problem with that is a lot of the time it's not even our network that's being destroyed by the malicious traffic, it's usually our providers or even their providers. This is why as a whole, network operations is moving towards a solution of being closer to providing their own Internet connections to our players. I'll find the post on the EUW forums that references things like the AMS datacenter and Riot Direct and edit it in here.

I don't mind chatting with you all (I'd actually prefer it over staying quiet), and I'd really like to address any questions that I can. I'll be honest, it's a ****ty situation to be in, and myself along with a lot of other Rioters, as well as other industry professionals are trying to solve this problem as a whole rather than slowly crawling our ACLS up our provider lists. It really does make me sad that any of your games get ruined because of a DDOS, which is even more motivation to kick our butts into high gear and get this problem solved.
As someone who has been incredibly frustrated for the past couple of weeks, THANK YOU. All I have really wanted is for a red to comment on the situation. Now for some questions. Are you close to finding a solution? Is there some kind of timeframe that you expect to figure it out in? Is there any possible legal action you can take? If this gets ironed out, how do you expect to prevent it in the future?

How about we let Riot solve the DDoS before we start clamoring for recompense (?) for them being the target

Do you have an idea of where these attacks are coming from?
