These hackers are just a colossal pain in the ass.

CCP Games has pulled down their servers for EVE Online and DUST 514 due to a DDoS attack over the weekend. The information was revealed via the EVE Facebook page . CCP is currently investigating the situation and said:

"With the highest sense of precaution we have taken Tranquility and associated websites back down for further investigation and an exhaustive scan of our entire infrastructure. We will update you more frequently via our Twitter feed, however, an extended service interruption of several hours is expected as this process should not be rushed."

EVE is a MMORPG for the PC while DUST 514 is basically a MMOFPS; a spin-off of EVE that is available exclusively on the PlayStation 3. Sadly, DUST 514 just launched back on May 14, so the timing of this attack sucks. Of course, such attacks always suck but they can be especially damaging when a title is brand new. For the time being, CCP is trying to reactivate the servers, but we have no idea when everything will be back up and running again. Here's hoping it'll be soon.

You all know how I feel aboot this game. Eve and Dust players are loyal… Like REAAALLLYYY loyal. Once this game hits ps4 though it's gonna explode. As for my feelings on this attack? let's put it this way. I have gone through 2 packs of smokes today…

I'm not so certain it WILL hit PS4. It would cost a fortune to redevelop the whole thing again and PS4 won't even play digital PS3 games.

Yeah, It'll hit ps4 within 3 years. That's my prediction. CCP is good. EVE Online started out small, with only a few thousand players. 10 years later they have over 200,000 active players. Small steps my friend. CCP can't afford not to. The ps3 version is basically a prototype.
