Albion Online officially launched on July 17. Unfortunately, the team responsible for the game has no easy life – bypassing a lot of work related to the premiere, recently to the pool of problems joined by the flood of gold sellers, and for several days also attacks DDoS and blackmailing.
(…)there are no quick solutions here. We’re in touch with various experts on the topic who are helping us improve our defense infrastructure, but these attacks can and will most likely continue to occur until we’ve made some significant changes (…) Until then, please hang in there with us, we’re not giving up the fight, and neither should you! We have great plans for Albion and we intend to see them through.
The developers at the official game forum have reported that recent server problems were caused by DDoS attacks – they also received ransom requests. The message was apologized for the inconvenience faced by the players. Sandbox Interactive assures that it works with a variety of experts to strengthen security, but until problems are fixed, problems can be repeated.
