TF2 News "this year, we're planning on shipping a full-on update-sized update"

Unfortunately, community servers are usually excluded from the cool rewards. But maybe the workshop content will be fun. We'll see.

alainreid, I'm sorry if people have been harassing you about this. You're not under investigation.

Please guys, I get that these attacks are frustrating, but there's no point trying to find the culprit. And a witch hunt  won't help anybody, especially not the community.
If you have specific questions, feel free to PM me.

Again please don't accuse other players. Thank you.

To answer some your questions:
- Yes, the server is definitely the target of these attacks. The attacks start when the server is full, and the goal is to overwhelm the server. They happen daily for the past two weeks.

- If you would like more details, please PM me directly from your forum account here.

- We are mitigating the attacks, it's obviously not enough.
When the server is overwhelmed, most players are disconnected. The server also disappears from the browser/favorites list. When that happens, you can manually reconnect by using the console in-game:

- I understand if you decide to move on to another community. Thank you for your support for all these years :)

- I will be crediting 15 days to all current donators. You will not receive a confirmation PM about this since this is not an automated process. If you would like to know your new membership expiration date, you can PM me.

- Finally, I'm expecting the attacks to keep going.

If you have more questions, feel free to PM me here on the forums.

Another update:

If you don't see the server in your favorites/browser, you can try connecting to it manually by typing in console:
Code: [Select]

Due to the attacks, the server can disappear from your favorites, while it is actually running. If you cannot connect manually, then you probably need to wait 20min to try again.

Quick update:
The server changed IP:

It should automatically sync when you launch TF2 and your favorites list in the server browser.
There's still some work to be done, as the attacks have not stopped. It will take some time. I'll let you guys know.

Hey guys,

The server will be down today ("how is it different from the past 10 days?!").

I'll have another update hopefully tonight otherwise tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience!

I understand you guys are angry, that's probably one of the attackers goals.
I can't give any details publicly, and while I appreciate your support, this situation cannot be resolved by simply blocking a couple of IPs.

Like I said, I'm expecting the attacks to continue. It sucks, but it might be better to play somewhere else this week.
For current donators, I'll think of something after this situation is over.

Again, I know this is very frustrating, and I'm sorry.

All downtime has been caused by ddos attacks this week.
I post short updates on the shoutbox on the main page.

I'm sorry I can't go into more details, but I'm expecting the attacks to continue.

Thanks for the heads up, Plasma.  I've noticed two things recently:

1. If I navigate to in either Chrome or Edge the webpage shows broken and incomplete until I click on the "Home" button at the top of the page, then everything displays correctly as it should.  I get the same result whether I use a bookmark to access the site or manually navigate to the site by typing in the url.

2.  I can no longer locate the Hyperion TF2 chat logs and player rankings page.  Did we lose this feature in the transition to the new forum setup?



1). I had to change the nameservers, so its likely that you might need to clear your browsers data.

2). Stats are still available:

1+2). There are few small issues I still have to fix regarding subdomains, so that might also be why you're having issues. With the holidays, I didn't have a lot of time to work on the website.

As for saxtons given/received, I'm not sure that's possible to add to GameMe tracking.

News and Annoucements / Forums Migration Complete
« on: December 16, 2022, 03:52:39 AM »
You might have noticed that the forums were offline for the last couple of days. This is because my webhost decided to perform a major upgrade on their webserver, resulting in breaking these forums completely. They also only gave me 48 hours notice, which was too short beyond preparing a backup.

In the end, the easiest solution was to move to another host, and hopefully the migration will be complete soon. I'm hoping that there won't be any issues for you guys, but I'm expecting some hiccups here and there. Please let me know if you have trouble logging in, or using these forums like before. You will probably need to login once again.

The GameMe stats and SourceBans pages will be available soon as well.

Unfortunately, all emails sent to prior to the migration have been lost.

For current donators:
During maintenance, all donator memberships were on hold. The system will be re-activated by the end of the week, and should resume its function. You should receive a private message like before whenever your membership is expiring. If you have any questions or issues with your donations, please send me a PM.

For future donators:
Please use the donation block, and make sure you are currently logged in.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and hopefully everything will be back to normal.

I'm sorry, I wasn't available today to fix the issue. It wasn't something serious, but it definitely wasn't planned.
Server is back online, and I'll monitor it closely this week in case this issue happens again.

Again, I'm sorry for the unplanned downtime today.

Sprays should be working.
If they're not, it might be a client side issue.

General Discussion / Re: Beerbowl is dropping players

I changed the map name so it should force everybody to re-download beerbowl_rc1.

Let me know if the map is still unplayable for some.

Ban on Wagz has been lifted.
Locking thread.
