Update: Titanfall Beta Servers Attacked

UPDATE: It looks like the Titanfall beta servers have also been hit by the group. Several Gamesided readers have informed us that they can no longer access the beta.

It appears as though the notorious hacker group has set its site on one of the biggest upcoming gaming releases.

As of this posting, the group has taken down Titanfall.com. It is unknown currently if the Titanfall beta has been impacted by the website being taken offline, but the group is also saying that it is only the beginning of their plans. What that exactly means is uncertain, but Gamesided will follow the situation as it develops. (PC, TitanFall, Xbox One)

Really? Are these hackers so sad that they have to pass on their misery to everyone?

Evil never prevails, however. Its wickedness only last but for a time.

How is that funny?
KwietStorm  +   501d ago
No its really not funny though. It's tired , it's pathetic, and it's just corny.

Please explain how this is funny

Annoying, but that Gaben Laser Beam™ has some serious power.

I am not a fan of Titanfall but I am a fan of gaming and this is in no way funny or humorous. This sort of action is despicable. I won't say pathetic as that in some manner indicates a degree of sympathy for these hackers. I have none.

When you resort to attacking game servers it is obvious your life has no purpose as you occupy needed space in this world - the space, the vaccuum left by their absence is more important than they.

Yeah I don't agree that it's funny, I couldn't care less about MS or Titanfall

Trolling is one thing, but taking down servers stopping people from enjoying what they enjoy is just wrong "I don't approve that kind of behaviour"

What kind of gamer would see humor in a game being ruined by hackers?
redwin  +   501d ago
I don't think it is funny but I'm glad it happened now so they can take action to keep that from happening again. Btw, isn't TitanFall using EA servers, not MS's?

"Evil never prevails, however"

Actually, yes. Yes it does. A lot. Good things, heck great things, happen to very bad people. And horrible things happen to good people. Cruel and vile human beings can live long, happy lives while inflicting suffering on all around them. But we often conveniently ignore these stories because they somewhat diminish the idea of hope and the long held belief that good will always triumph.

Maybe in the short instance you may think evil prevails, but when you looking at it hindsight how ever long it takes you to get caught while sitting in your jail cell, you will say evil never prevails.
Mystogan  +   501d ago
No it doesn't, Ever!
eventually you have to pay for your evil crimes. Maybe not in the way you might see it. But you'll definitely pay.

Maybe you think they got away with it but truth is they're probably dying inside.
Volkama  +   501d ago
So true. Whenever someone says "Karma"... it isn't. Karma isn't a thing, people don't get their dues. Vast majority of the time the douches get ahead, and that's the end of the story.

However in this case the douches aren't getting ahead. Perhaps they get a weird sense of satisfaction from what they're doing, but that's about all they have achieved.

These hackers need to get lives. What exactly is the purpose of attacking videogames? What kind of loser do you have to be to do this? I don't get it, I really don't.

"the notorious hacker group" known as the notorious hacker group. Is this for real?
Ducky  +   501d ago
How could you not have heard about the notorious hacker group?
They're notorious.
Strawmr  +   501d ago
Won't mention them by name (they can be found) due to them hitting the site last time they were mentioned
Narutone66  +   501d ago
Journalists are using the word "Hackers" loosely nowadays. It doesn't take skills to DDOS/Packet a server to bring it down.

I want to say that the author is referring to DERP. Remember when they hit DC Universe Online, PSN, Xbox Live, Steam, League of Legends, Planetside 2, etc not too long ago? That generated a lot of hate for them. So, I'm guessing the writer means "notorious" in the sense of what DERP did. Now Titanfall servers and its website were hit. They always say they do it for "the lulz". I would enjoy some "lulz", too, if I can get to punch a hacker in the face.

Go straight to Jail, you don't land on go, and you don't earn £200
NintendoYouth  +   501d ago
I wont have the chance to play TitanFall for a bit or at all.
Seeing as I own a PS4, but to hack the TitanFall online for those who ca enjoy it is pretty sad.

Pathetic people do pathetic things.
porkChop  +   501d ago
The PC beta is running butter smooth for me, no lag whatsoever.
lsujester  +   501d ago
I've definitely seen lag. A lot of the matches I've been have everyone has 60-100 ping with some people on up to 200+. Some of the encounters definitely show it, too.

These servers run well, but I hope they become a little more widespread than they are now. There is a MS data center barely five minutes from my house in Texas, but it doesn't seem to be hosting Titanfall, as I always end up in East US.

Onehandband1t  +   501d ago
Beta is fine on PC and also Titanfall website is no down. Well UK at least
Ninver  +   501d ago
Wow feel sorry for anyone who buys TF at launch only to have server problems. I foresee a lot of returns from gamers who may mistake this silly act for a broken game.
JasonXS12  +   501d ago
Why do douchebags exist?
Orange Juice  +   501d ago
This behavior has no place in the gaming world but I have to say that it will help ms and ea's network security in the long run. Good that they decided to do this during the beta and not right before the game came out or something.
Feldman9000  +   501d ago
That's fine. I'll stick to killzone.
redwin  +   501d ago
Honestly, famboyism aside , if someone lends you a xbone to play TitanFall, you will say, no! ?
Castle333  +   501d ago
These dudes are pissed off because they bought a beta code from ebay.
xFaRt0fwAr  +   501d ago
Game is fantastic , some people have nothing better to do. I guess kinda like the garbage true gamers put up with on this site, fan boys come in legions and crap all over anything they disagree with truth or not... SMH
SoulSercher620  +   501d ago
Funny how these Xbox fanboys on here are blaming Sony fans instantly for this hack with no proof to back it up. And they say we're gullible.

Hacking in general is uncool but rushing to blame someone without proof is just as bad.
MCTJim  +   501d ago
I was playing from 8pm-1100pm EST last night and never even noticed. Could someone please post a link since I dont see it on Respawn's forum either.

Was this more of a PC issue?
Mister_G  +   501d ago
Oh well, you can always play the single player campai... oh, wait, sorry no :-\
SpideySpeakz  +   501d ago
xbox fanboys be like... "It was the Sony Fans I tell ya. They are paid by Sony" then put the tinfoil hat.
Flames76  +   501d ago
This must be on the PC because there is nothing on the Xbox forums about it anywhere?Of course this does sound like another sony fanboys article.Damn i tell you what they are scared of titanfall they know its gonna crush anything the PS4 has in march or within this year
