Hi Guys.

We're back online. We took the time while getting DDoS'd to upgrade our servers which was the reason our downtime has been longer than the actual DDoS attack. We're currently going through the process of tuning our new hardware to suit our needs. During this time we expect CG to be running poorly and its uptime to fluctuate.

We expect to have things sorted out within 24hrs.

Thanks for all your patience through this tough period. Good to see you all back

Read on some website that cg most likely knows who it was and has turned their info over to the authorities. gg

We appreciate your efforts into stopping the attack and all the upgrades which will make Cybergamer more secure. It's actually working better for me so far, I'm not sure about anyone else but everything besides not having a notification bar is good. Hopefully whoever was behind the attack get's delt with.

The PUGs, Smartbar & Live Chats have been disabled while we tune our typical services first.

Who ever did this needs to be taken to the street stripped, abused sexually, put on a pole, burned at a stack, then the remains eaten by hungry angry CG followers

i can assure you all now they wouldn't know who hosted the DDoS attack straight away. unless the person was extremely vulnerable and dumb, but its a good thing that cg has hit back i was wondering what happened and why it was down for so long. But i guess, inb4 the trolls return.
