So I am to understand that a DDos can be mitigated? So then that means Trion is doing nothing to stop this attack. Okay, thanks for all the info. and taking the time to explain things to us. That's all I wanted to know. Have a great day! :) That is really a wrong conclusion. Yes, people are getting bumped off. Yes, there is a DDOS happening. Is it everyone? No. Is it 100% of the time? No. When a DDOS happens a massive amount of traffic of some type gets sent. It takes a few seconds for any type of mitigation to happen. However, in the couple seconds it was active it could impact services which is why some people but not all disconnect. The mitigation also allows people to reconnect because the DDOS was handled and services resume as normal until the next different attack. You see, people who do the DDOS change their attacks and when one way is blocked they try another and on and on. So the very fact that its only some people and they can reconnect almost immediately shows things are happening constantly to try and deal with this DDOS. Mitigation - "the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something"
