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]
connect 162.248.94.208:27015

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.

right on schedule down again..... sorry plasma, but im gonna stop donating and move over to EoTL. I tried starting a new community+server of old Hype players but people weren't interested.... so just gonna move over to an already thriving one with multiple servers and lower monthly VIP costs. I've been a member for over 10 years it pains me to see it comes to this.

see y'all around

Plasma,
Is Hyperion itself the target, or is it the result of collateral damage from someone targeting a higher level entity?

Roughly 2 weeks have passed since the attacks started, which should be enough time to draw some conclusions. 

Perhaps it's time to release more details on what is known at this point.

In any case, thank you for trying to mitigate.

What's weird is that right now the server doesn't respond in the server browser, yet if I connect from the console it's up and running just fine...

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:
connect 162.248.94.208:27015

- 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.

Sorry you have to deal with all this shit, Plasma. If you have an idea of the person who's doing it - or even if you can confirm somehow it's not a server regular - I wish we could know, because people are just speculating wildly about everyone they don't like in the server being behind it now. It's only a matter of time before Hyperion's best amateur detectives do real hurt to someone over it.

I've been notified by your community that I'm "under investigation" for hacking your server.  You guys are silly.  You should just leave me alone.  I left when I was told I should play somewhere else because I criticized Wolfpup and apparently generally complained too much.  I don't want to play where I'm not welcome.  You guys should take the win and be happy I'm gone rather than bug me about some shit I'm not involved in.  I removed most of you from my friends list and I guess that wasn't enough.  It's been fun but please just leave me alone.  I'm not a hacker and even if I was, I think there are far too few populated community servers with custom maps and old school players.  I wouldn't waste my time tearing that down.  I would just leave and maybe pop in now and then occasionally to see old friends.

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.

there's always the possibility the attacker is 1 of the 600 dominations on my iron bomber and if it is then i would like to apologize to the community. there's also the possibility it is one of the dominations on my backburner and if it is then i would like to apologize to the community.

Thank you, Plasma.  I know you're not investigating me.  It's the rest of these nimrods...

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

Is the server still under attack?  I login some times, when I'd expect to find it full, and instead it's empty. 

I just started playing TF2 again after a 10 year'ish break.  Where does everybody go when they don't play here?  It's been fun to see familiar names here.

I thought your name looked familiar!  ;)

Server was full, great game, had to drop to fill my bourbon.  Come back, can't connect.  Ran this:
connect 162.248.94.208:27015

I'm the only person on the server.  I was only gone like 3 minutes.  :(  wtf

Ataris when I saw you, I had flashbacks to dying 8 times in a row from sniper headshots.  I'm not very good at this game.  But it's lots of fun.
