"Fans" of the hit indie title Minecraft have decided to launch a DDoS attack on the Minecraft servers due to Notch's inability to update the game as frequently in the past few months.
If this is the case, and please excuse my language, then these guys are retarded. It's not like Notch has servers, offices, sales, employees to worry about before he can even think about magically whipping up an update at will without the need to program or test or anything. It's not like these DDOS attacks might be slowing down his progress of updating, oh no, that would be ridiculous! Seriously, if these idiots think that Notch is denying them updates for some kind of sick pleasure rather than the more likely fact that people just don't pull updates out of their asses, and if they think the only way to make updates come faster is to DDOS an indie dev's website, then they're going to have a long wait.
Also, there is, literally, a huge update planned for Halloween, what the hell are these idiots thinking?
This is stupid. This was done some punk 4chan idiot who let operation payback get to their head. Botnets gave them a way to fight back the man. But these idiots have just proven that the power they received has corrupted them and are no better than the people they've been standing up to. I was all for operation payback but now f*ck operation payback and f*ck anonymous.
a /b/ user on 4chan that is a moron ?? what a news!! /s
couldnt agree with you more. this is so asinine that it gave me a headache.
Oh my god!!! Notch is giving them a great game for free or you can pay and have acess to multiplayer online. There's already a big update coming, why would they do that?
lmfao this is hilarious.
We go from discovering fire, to inventing medicines, to curing diseases, to THIS? ****ing human beings.
I KNOW RIGHT?? WHATS WRONG WITH US?
If aliens took me up on their ship and asked me what I thought of humanity and what they should do with us. I would tell them to whipe every single on of us clean of the face the universe... Lol we are a sickening virus
Never tried Minecraft been wanting to try it out i suppose.
I downloaded it 2 days ago after wondering what all the fuss was about. I've been playing it constantly ever since. Simple but highly addictive.
That'll show 'em for sure!
God, you got to love the sense of entitlement of these internet losers.
i agree. i was arguing with this guy from youtube 'cause he was pissed off bad company 2's free map pack only featured the same maps in different modes. wth? it's freakin FREE! greed, entitlement, and anonymity = disaster
Exactly why 90% of what goes on on this site is to be disregarded. LOL.
What a massive bunch of bastards.
fucking /v/, always up to some shit.
And for every day the attack continues, extend the release date by a month. You can't give in to terrorist demands, especially since I highly doubt most of them paid for the game in the first place. Bunch of whiny children. Even in alpha Minecraft is much more feature-rich than a lot of other games for £10. So get over it.
