Server being spammed with bots

Hello everyone.

I'd just like to report the fact that one of my server is being flooded recently by someone. It's happened to us in the past a few times and I just noticed that the server dropped off the ranks on GameTracker. This is the message being displayed as the server rank now... "This server has been detected to report fake or
idle clients and it is not eligible to be ranked." - From previously being rank 9th.

We've been getting a lot of ddos on our other servers as well and it's clear that someone is attacking us. I think it's really unfair for our ranked to be stripped because our server history will show that we're legit and we gained our ranking through hard work and dedication. Having some idiot spam our server and getting it removed from the ranks is quite disheartening so I'd really like it if you guys can assist.

I look foward to a favourable response.

EDIT: As of now, our server is still being spammed with these annoying bots.

Best Regards,
SilverWolf.

Hello silverwolf,

Whenever the fake players are no longer on your server, I can set your server to get back into the ranking system.

The flooding has stopped and I really appreciate this. Whenever it happens again I shall let you guys know ASAP.

Next time, we'll also just turn off the server because I don't think he has a GUID as we're unable to ban and the bots all remain in the connection queque so no one else is able to connect to our server.

Many thanks,
SilverWolf.

Hello again,

The server has been reranked. It should get back into the ranking system in the next ranking update, which occurs daily.

Its great to see that gametracker don't make us the victims of those sick guy's who ddos, cheat hack and flooded our servers with fake players.

We already worked a lot of times on a legit way our ass off to get our gameservers back, after every ddos attack, into a high gametracker rank.

Thank you gametracker!
