I'm doge and I play sauer a lot, though not really active in the community. So I apologize if this has already been brought up or resolved before. I think most of us can agree that the ddos on pasta is pretty childish and the alternative servers, while decent, don't really live up to the caliber of pasta. In chef's analogy, pastaland is Linguine allo Scoglio, other insta servers are... mac n' cheese.
So my questions are this...
- Would it be feasible to purchase and apply ddos protections to Pastaland?
- If so, how much per month would such a transaction cost?
My take on this... I play sauer probably an hour per day before work and another at night. It's a nice stress-reliever. The value of a quality server being online cannot be understated. So if it means paying $$ per month to fight back against the ddos kids and maybe pad the pockets of our pasta overlords a bit, then I'm happy to chip in my part. And from limited server conversation it seems others would be too, so a protection package steep in cost may not be such an obstacle financially with the help of the community.
Would love to hear thoughts from whoever runs pasta. Cheers!
