I was determined on doing all 40 floors in Crucible Spire, 5 CoE runs, 5 ToE runs, 10 BoS runs and grind all the way to level 75 on my Gunner yesterday. I couldn't accomplish anything due to lag. Can

https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/comment/235983/#Comment_235983 ^ pretty decent thread really. One person mentioned that Comcast itself was being DDoS'd last night.

In order to cut costs, and be able to maintain the servers, they had to scale back some of the hardware to 1998.  The server is now hosted on an AMD K6-2 520mhz machine running Windows 98se.  Additionally, the server is connected via a 28.8k full dual-baud modem with AOL. 

Unfortunately, the phone line for the dial-up internet is shared with the customer service line, which is the reason for the mass-disconnects: people keep calling in for assistance.

If a few more people will buy some NCoin, NCSoft will be able to afford a Boost Mobile cellphone for the customer service department (Edith), and the disconnects will stop.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding, a 5% drop rate increase on Power Lockboxes in the Idian Depths event will be available during maintenance tomorrow to compensate players for the lost instance cooldowns.

In all likely hood it is a DDOS attack again.  Very little they can do to stop everything to help is a slow task.  Could be a Hardware issue though to and troubleshooting can take time so just chill, have a Beer and Hotdog kick back and watch Game 7 of the World Series tonight :-)  NCSOON will all get sorted out

Pretty sure if it was a DDoS, it wouldn't be hitting different people at different times, which it is.

It is a DDos Attack, thats why ppl were having mass disconnects, DDos doesnt always mean lag. But now we have the perfect combo lag and disconnects

I am almost 100% sure it is a DDOS and you need to take their server response time and the delay in getting to you before it affects you into account.  Someone in Brazill will get hit a different time as someone in Texas, or Canada, or California and every system communicates at different pings with the server
