#3620980 Arena Profiteering

Posted Mionee on 22 January 2012 - 02:01 AM


Edit: can't see how can anyone have a problem with people getting money from videos/streams/guides or other content. Why is there even a discussion about that?

I'm fine with people making money to an extent. I'm not fine with everyone selling themselves like prostitutes just to gain a tiny bit of recognition or more suscribers..


"Arguably the Best Hunter in the World featuring other World class players. You won't find this anywhere else but at DNAW! Want to be PRO? Get a Skill-Capped Subscription, GAURANTEED rating increase:"  

things like that are so ridiculous, yet it's everywhere and it's the norm nowadays. can't help but laugh at all of this. Personally I could probably double or triple the amount of suscribers I got by actually put time into my vids and edit them a bit instead of just uploading my fraps, by choosing mainstream music (loldubstep) instead of my own personal (and otaku/weird) Touhou tastes, by asking people to pleasepleasepleasesuscribeomgpleasecommentpleasethumbsup. ie: by selling my soul.

I believe money ruins video games if it becomes the crux of creating content (ie stuff like Athene/swifty and all the other wannabes cf braindeadly belligerentz etc). It's supposed to be something done by geeks, for geeks, not some kind of industry. Nostalgia ? Yes. Most video games nowadays are shit because they only try to create a product rather than creating a piece of art, which is what video game making was in the beginning (with some exceptions, of course!). The same things applies to the community, it's totally retarded now that it's a mass of money hungry worms instead of geeks having a good time.

Then, of course, there's the legal argument - I'm not sure it's really legal to put ads on a video game stream unless you have explicit permission from the game editor. You're basically exploiting their commercial rights over the game. Youtube, for example, went the safe route, and denies you the possibility of using ads on your video games vids (I know because I tried). Not a legal domain I'm particularly good at, I don't really know the US laws about that, so won't talk about this too much, but if it seems not to be legal on videos, I don't really see hwy it would be legal on streams. This mostly goes under the radar for now though..

#3620579 Addressing DDoS attacks.

Posted tobieplz on 21 January 2012 - 06:17 PM

I've made this thread to address the issue of the person(s) acting mainly on the streamers of Athenelive.com and/or the Arenajunkies stream section disconnecting people, mainly rank 1 / famous players, through denial of service attacks.

I think we should first get out of the way what a Denial of Service attack is, it's common practise now for people to blame lag spikes in game and random disconnects on a DoS attack, this is not the case. Only if your internet browse / WoW / Skype disconnect at the same time (as in EVERYTHING internet related), normally in a gradual manner (robotic voices on skype etc) this is when you're victim of a DoS attack – but sometimes this can just be down to a router fault.

Here are some examples of the DoSing:
The videos was removed from youtube, so edited them out.

I know there are a lot of people with ideas to who this could be – I have a pretty good idea myself – but more importantly we should focus on how to prevent it from happening than just randomly ranting at whoever we suspect to be behind it. Here are some ideas to what we can do to make these attacks have the lessened affect over the community:

> Mods on Arena Junkies should have the right to view I.P addresses of posters removed. I say this because certain moderators in the past have used this to partake in DoS attacks. I'm pretty sure there is still a list out there of I.P addresses which was sourced from AJ and is still being used for DoS attacks.  

> People that are vulnerable to DoS attacks should get something along the lines of this: https://www.torproject.org/

> If you have excessive contacts on Skype delete them or remake your Skype – be wary of people adding you. (I know this obvious stuff)

> Call your ISP and get yourself put on a non-static IP so if none of the above is working for you, you can at least reset your router and have a new identity in-terms of an IP address.

There is ALOT of more ways to defend yourself against this, but it's all very complicated, but if you would want to know how to do it there is multiple websites who will tell you how to, Just google it.

I have never been the victim of a DDoS attack before I started streaming @ Athenelive.com and I just think it's really sad that someone would do this just for laughs since I don't see they gaining ANYTHING by doing this this early into the season.

For my last point there is no point flaming or getting mad at the person(s) doing this. They will stop, it's just like any other kind of bullying and/or abuse, they do it to get a reaction – if you don't react they'll get bored and stop.

What minpojke did to stop all this DDoSing nonsense was:

1. Get a new ip
2. Create a new skype
3. Dont login to facebook or enter ur stream-chat while streaming
