Wurm Online's 1.2 patch
was supposed to herald a day of rejoicing for the community, but that quickly turned sour as a severe DDOS attack on its hosting forced the devs to take the game offline for over a day now.
"Shortly after todays update we were the target of a DDOS attack and our hosting provider had to pull us off the grid for now," Code Club posted
. "As annoying as this may be, we are taking steps to turn this to everyones advantage. I announced earlier that we were already looking at migrating the hosting of Wurm
. When the attack forced us offline, we went straight ahead and pushed for this to happen as soon as possible."
The team is working on switching hosting and said that service should be restored within a day. Code Club
is offering a bounty of 10,000 Euro
"for any tips or evidence leading to a conviction of the person responsible for this attack."
