Event Cancellation/Re-Run if servers are DDOSed

a simple suggestion...

if an event is interrupted by mass disconnection, where only a few can win.. if they are around for that hour vs many others who lose...

1 - ALL PRIZES for said event is CANCELLED/DELETED.
2 - said event is RE-RUN the following week with the same prizes of the previous week, or double rewards in the case of weekly evens

SO...

GW - 0cps the current week, double the next week
CTF - 0cps the current week, double the next week
elite pkt/team pkt/etc - all prizes are deleted... any prizes that cant be deleted because they are used before deleted, are then taken back the next time a player acquires them, the following week double prizes.

SGW - the TOKEN is not given on the mondey, and is either not given period, or it goes on for an additional week to hand out the "5th" token

sound fair?

otherwise these cheaters ddosing the whole of CO.. will win events without even playing CO... and until something is done to make DDOSing a worthless action... they will keep on doing it.

It has now happened to me on 2 different servers.

On Turquoise my tpkt team was disconnected to stop us even taking part in tpkt as we won it most weeks, and sometimes for GW/CTF too.

On Sunshine we get DDOSed every GW.. including this week.. a super GW where we cant login at all.. because "servers are down"... normally it was just a 5 mins DDOS because they have 3 kings vs us atm.. but we had the cheek to beat them with their 3 kings last week.. so this week they DDOS for a long time.

so yup........ this sort of bull****.. needs to be stopped.. so people can actually PLAY and FIGHT to win events...

whats the point of playing CO.. or even buying CPS for CO... if every time you want to play... your forced not to by these cheaters?

If you actually want to play CO.... vote yes
if you don't play CO... please don't vote no... I don't know why anyone would vote no.. except to be annoying to others.. but please, if that's your only motive.. just leave.. ty

Basi too, I emailed them today and told them they should just cancel all events for awhile, but yes at the rate they are going this will never stop, some of us was ddosed last half of sgw (previous sgw not this set) by one of the same people who is doing it to the servers now. So obviously this person is not going to stop

It is a good idea to at least cancel the prizes like you said

I feel for you. About a year ago this happened to us in Storm. It continued for 3 months or so and you can actually find the posts we made at the time in Community. It ended after a lot of people from one alliance moved server.

Your suggestion is a good and fair one, but I doubt it will be implemented due to the administrative "burden" this places on TQ.

For a start, TQ would need to change the reward time of all events so that they were awarded after the next scheduled maintenance or at least a day later. This is to prevent the situation where a couple of people are mysteriously able to remain logged into the server following the DDoS to win the event and are able to claim the reward straight away.
