Wow, DDosed by Hackers. I feel sorry for DICE having to deal with this.

True enough.

I can imagine this was probably done by -ahem- "hacktivists" to combat the evils of corporations like EA, or possibly by hackers doing it "for the lulz" either way it's a dick move that basically causes some extra work for DICE and annoys Battlefield 3 players. If it's the former then it's really pointless and mean spirited, if it's the latter then they need rounding up and waterboarding. :evil:

I really don't understand why people would do this. There's no point to be made hacking the servers. All it does is waste everybody's time.

Funny how much 'unclear' looks like 'nuclear' in passing... I was both appalled and incredibly confused for a few ignorant seconds.

No follow-up from DICE or EA just yet. How's it looking in there?
