We now have several hardware firewalls in place between the internet and the Rising Storm 2 servers.
These will add 1ms to ping as each packet coming in is now being checked. The network learns what is normal and will react very quick to ddos attacks coming in.
We currently have it setup to assume its always under attack, we do not expect to change that as it has the less then a 3 second reaction time.
IP and region blocks have been lifted as we are now confident this system we have in place will now protect the RS2 servers.
We also have new hardware the RS2 servers are on using AMD processors running over 4Ghz which has allowed us to increase the tick rate of both servers.
