Nice fake news. 1-2 AM is the slowest time of the night for atWar, and Monday nights are the slowest of the whole week. It's been the same thing every fucking week the entire time I've owned atWar. This is nothing new.


US 2am or European?

The contrast of a very active cw day but begginers 0. In AtWar always begginers had more than main but seems things have changed. Something needs to be done ASAP.

Instead of actually trying to figure out the reason competitive activity has decreased drastically over the last few years


I think the reasons are apparent. There is an elitist circle of high-ranks who basically control the CW scene, and are (with a few exceptions) hostile to any newcomers. Not saying they are bad people, they're not. It's just led to a situation for several years now where the same group of people take turns winning the seasons. As time goes by the group gets smaller due to people going inactive for various reasons (maybe getting older and being too busy with school, work, having families, whatever the case may be), and few if any new replacements are allowed in.

From the perspective of a low/mid rank player interested in the CW scene, none of the top clans want to take you. Maybe you join some other clan that is noob-friendly, but in that place you have no hope of actually winning. Unless you spend many months/years leveling up, which few people would have the patience for, it's all rather pointless. So why even try?

In my opinion nothing will change until a new class of CW players are trained up. Either the high ranks need to reach out beyond their own circles, or we give the low/mid ranks their own separate motivation to start playing more -- hence the Most Active award, something they can realistically achieve even if the 1st place trophy is out of reach for the moment.

All that being said, if you have some other solution I would love to hear it...

25.02.2021 i Help Chat Unused?
There are some technical problems with help chat that I need to solve. When people send a message to /help, it goes to all supporters who are "online". Unfortunately just because a supporter is "online" does not mean they are actually available. The system does not consider if they are AFK or not. It does not consider if they are in a game. The end user might think he was "ignored", but really there are several legitimate reasons why the message might not have be seen at all.

The /report command works a little differently for the moderators. If no moderator is online, the message will be saved and the mods can review it later. This is better, but it only works when no moderators are online. If even 1 mod is on, then the message will be sent to him, regardless of whether he happens to be AFK or in a game. So even then, there's a good possibility the message won't be seen.

This is stuff that's already been on my list for a while, but we need:

1) /help messages need to be recorded in a place where Supporters can review them later (similar to how /report works for moderators), except that:
2) ALL messages to /help and /report need to be saved, regardless of whether there are supporters or moderators online. That way all messages can be reviewed and answered later, in case they were missed.

All this will happen eventually, I just haven't had time to do it yet. Until then, even though the system isn't perfect, I'd say it still works most of the time. I've seen supporters answering help chat plenty of times, you just have to catch them when one is really available. (I watch from my sneaky alt account that nobody knows about, so I know they're not just answering because they think Dave is online.... we have some really great supporters who genuinely care about helping people.)

You donated your ProtoCoins for Warhammer Tournament ( https://hr.atwar-game.com/forum/topic.php?topic_id=46400&topicsearch=&page=1 ) :



Next time before you moan on Global channel, Room channel and General forum about removal of your 68 ProtoCoins, remind yourself what you promised to donate.
In this case you 'donated' 100 ProtoCoins, but you decided to spend them in the meantime.

One can make money by randomly blacklisting IP's all willy-nilly like and all servers from a provider? I am in the wrong business. More seriously, people should complain to Microsoft and GMX about using a service such as UCEPROTECTL3. That's just extortion.

Do you have stats for At-War users' email client? @outlook.com @hotmail.com "Now that is a name I haven't heard in a long time"


Yup. I'm in the wrong business too.

Good question about stats, so I checked. We have:

Total registered users on atWar (as of today): 718,129
Of those, total who have provided an email address: 604,121

Of the email addresses provided, common providers include:
@gmail: 292,389 (48%)
@hotmail: 118,544 (20%)
@yahoo: 44,348 (7%)
@live.com: 13,130 (2%)
@outlook: 11,887 (2%)
@yandex: 7,673 (1%)
@mail.ru: 5,234 (<1%)
@gmx: 3,790 (<1%)
@aol: 3,721 (<1%)
@icloud: 3,081 (<1%)

Thankfully GMX is a pretty tiny percentage. Also @outlook and @live.com (another Microsoft service I forgot about) are pretty small. Hotmail is a bitch tho... 20% of people still use that for some reason. (No offense to any hotmail users, but seriously?)

Sue them. I don't know how the US justice system works. But, you could claim lost revenue due to them not letting you advertise, and if you win (which you probably will, because this looks quite shady) they'll pay the court fees (I think that's how it works in the US). But again, I don't know how expensive it will be to take them to court. It seems that UCEPROTECT is no doubt, an extortion scheme. If Microsoft suddenly blacklisted google on it's firewall and then asked for a fee, then they wouldn't even exist anymore.

You should at least report it somewhere (maybe FCC?). You could even try getting a lawyer to see if you can fuck them over somehow, or at least get some perspective.


I would really, really love to sue them, but, sadly, lawsuits are fucking expensive. Plus with the whole international aspect (since those guys are based in Switzerland) would make it even more so. It's probably not feasible for me.

Digital Ocean is a big company, they've got plenty of money for lawyers... we need to get somebody like them to sue the bastards for us.

Our mail server is hosted at Digital Ocean. If you're not familiar with it, Digital Ocean is one of the largest cloud server providers in the United States. In other words, because we happen to use one of the largest providers in the U.S. (with over 2.4 million IP addresses included in this ban, according to them), we are somehow part of the problem and must be punished?

The myth about AW servers being hosted in Siberia and Afghanistan has just died.


That's only the mail server. The main AW servers are still in Djibouti, as always.

Some of you may have noticed you are not receiving emails from atWar currently... things like password reset emails, turn notifications, etc. This is NOT a technical problem on atWar's end. Rather, its an issue being caused by a certain 3rd party which we are fighting against. (More about this below, if you want to know...)

So far we know users of the following email services are affected by this:

  • Microsoft-hosted email services (like @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, etc.)
  • GMX (@gmx.net, @gmx.de, @gmx.fr, etc.)


If your email address is at one of these services, you will not be able to receive emails from us until this issue is resolved. If you need to contact us, I recommend using the atWar chat system and asking a moderator for assistance. (You can use the /report command in game.) If you can't login due to a forgotten password, use a guest or alt account to reach a moderator.

(Other email services like gmail are so far working fine...)




Why is this happening?

It's because the IP address of atWar's mail server is currently blacklisted by one particular spam blacklist, called UCEPROTECTL3.

There are probably 30+ popular spam blacklists maintained by various organizations... all except UCEPROTECT show that we are clean. That's because atWar doesn't send spam. We do everything the right way, according to the rules.

In fact, even UCEPROTECT says that it is not a ban against us specifically -- they decided to ban our entire host! Quote from their own website:

Citera:
As you should know now: It is not you, it is your complete provider which got UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listed.
Your IP 104.248.84.59 was NOT part of abusive action, but you are the one that has freely chosen your provider.
By tolerating or ignoring that your provider doesn't care about abusers you are indirectly also supporting the global spam with your money.
Seen from this point of view, you really shouldn't wonder about the consequences.


How's that for a wonderfully arrogant statement?

Our mail server is hosted at Digital Ocean. If you're not familiar with it, Digital Ocean is one of the largest cloud server providers in the United States. In other words, because we happen to use one of the largest providers in the U.S. (with over 2.4 million IP addresses included in this ban, according to them), we are somehow part of the problem and must be punished?



...But wait, they are so nice they give us a solution to "fix" this. All we have to do is "whitelist" our IP address with them, all for the low low price of just 25 CHF per month!



I ask you, how is this legal? They create the problem, then offer to fix it for a "fee"... is that not the very definition of blackmail?

Needless to say, I will not be paying it. I do not respond to blackmail, end of story. So what else am I doing about it? Well, at the moment I've been contacting the various email providers' (Microsoft, GMX) postmasters asking them to 1) unban our IP address and 2) consider not using UCEPROTECT at all. Like I said, there are many more reputable spam blacklists to choose from.

I'm not too hopeful at this point, but it's a start. After all, my company is just a tiny speck on the internet landscape.... nobody really cares about us. However we are certainly not the only ones affected by this issue... if enough backlash is generated against UCEPROTECT, the situation will be resolved for everyone sooner or later.

Like I said, every server hosted at Digital Ocean is effected by this, which means 2+ million servers. So far Digital Ocean doesn't seem to want to get involved -- their support has been dismissive about doing anything. I think the really correct solution is for the various email providers to stop using UCEPROTECT completely -- they are behaving like complete and total scammers.

If not, then we *could* use an email sending service (like SendGrid, MailGun, etc.) but I prefer not to since 1) those services cost money and 2) it seems ridiculous in principle that we should have to give up our own perfectly working email server just because 1 random somebody says so.

Another option is I could move our mail server to a different provider other than Digital Ocean. I actually maintain several mail servers already at various providers, and the non-Digital Ocean ones have not had any problem like this so far. I would rather not do this because 1) its a lot of unnecessary work and 2) again, its ridiculous that we should have to move our server just because 1 random somebody says so. However if it comes to be that there really is no other solution, I may end up moving the server (and grumbling about it, but whatever). I would rather spend the time to do that, than pay anything to these UCEPROTECT blackmailers.

Such are the joys of being in the tech business.

From a personal experience (with my nyc map) this issue does not have to do with map background image file size .. but rather the number of borders the map has .. you can reproduce this using world map:

1) If you clone world map with borders .. you would never be able to reuplod any background image no matter what browser you use (firefox is the best tho for editor like WD said) .. no matter how good your pc is (i tried to use a powerful programing computer at my work and still failed) .. and no matter what quality/size the file image is! It will always freeze whilst uploading and then times out due to inactivity before the upload is successful!

2) If you clone world map without borders (which is useless but just for the sake of science) .. you would literally be able to reulpoad any background image within seconds! (even if its 20MB which is the max size you can upload!)

3) If you clone world map with borders but then you delete roughly half the borders (say for example Americas and Australia and just keep Eurasia + Africa borders) and reupload whatever background image .. the editor will struggle a little bit but then if you use firefox and have decent pc .. it will be successful if you give it some time and patience!

Hope this helps tackling this issue a little bit


Gotta love the map editor..... If you clone the world map during a full moon while chanting a native american prayer and standing on only your left foot, then it works correctly. Otherwise, everything explodes. Makes total sense.

Seriously though, this is good info, thanks... I'll keep this in mind when I have some time to work on it again. Maybe it will give me some clue to find the root problem.
