Pretty sure we identified nearly all of them.

Its hard to say for sure, but I am confident in our methods.

Earlier today I was on the losing team and all of a sudden I disconnected. When I finally got back into the game, it turns out both teams dc'd all together. This persisted throughout the game and gave us a pretty unfair victory. Is this the lag you were talking about or is this just servers taking a dump? Cause if so, I really don't see how that's fair.. Sorry if I misunderstood everything but either way, good job so far. Glad to hear that there's progress.

@Akov Serious Question: How about you tell me why I got banned for supplying Riot with the program that was attacking the services.I provided all information about so to "RiotBlasto". I was told the complete opposite of what happened to me and that is ridiculous.

I want a proper explanation.

That was... clever...

So now teams that scrim can still "hide" their practices by leaving the game right?

Just a few more questions regarding customs and reconnection that I want clarified. While this won't impact those who are playing a custom by themselves and leaving, will this affect those who play with another friend or two? Also lets say 2 teams were practicing in customs for a tournament and do not want competitors to see the results of their practice/ strategies. If both teams purposefully leave the custom game will they be forced to reconnect and play it out or will the game disappear?

If I may ask, how large of a problem was this? I would see some posts about people being dropped from games on the forums, but I had the feeling that some were disconnects (for whatever reason) and were unrelated to someone actually DDoSing maliciously. I think the main point of my question is: Was this a widespread problem or a pretty localized problem with a lot of hype?
