    As you may have noticed, we have been getting DDoS attacks that are too big for our current host in LA to handle. We've found a new host that should be able to block any kind of attacks we've seen in the past.

    We have already moved 2FORT+ LA there. Please add it to your favorites:

    192.169.85.66 (or type la1.skial.com)

    We've moved the server back to the old IP.

    162.248.93.211

    We think the new host might have been laggy for some people which could have caused a decrease in players, so we are trying to put it on our old host again.

    Any Idea why your being DDOS'ed? Angry nerd? or for monetary gain?

    Epic Games company hired Russians to DDOS tf2 community servers so their player base would move on to Fortnite. Alex Jones has the truth. More news at 11.

    I doubt you can prove that, but it is probable....most likely through a 3rd party.

    We have a decent idea of what community is behind it given the evidence they left behind. But we don't see any benefit in saying so and giving them attention.

    The best thing to do now is focus on bringing the server back. It will probably be on shaky ground due to having the ip switched 2 times in a week along with the ddos attacks.
