Legends of Equestria is under attack by


Many ponyfans have been looking forward to tonight for quite some time now. 
None, perhaps more than the developers of Legends of Equestria, who were excited to launch the open server weekend of the latest game build tonight. Everything went well....for about 20 minutes. 
Then shit hit the fan. 

Equestria is under attack.




 Users, who had previously only encountered connection issues (the 64 Bit Windows client is a bit glitchier than its 32-bit counterpart), are now being greeted with a 504 error. The server, which hosts the website and forums, as well as the game, is pretty much completely down.



According to the admins, they are under a DDOS attack, and are working to solve the issue (though there is very little that can be done to stop an attack of this nature).

While we wait, here's a mirror of the 32-bit Windows version

  3. The only thing more autistic than Pony Second Life is DDoSing Pony Second Life.

    They probably don't even run their own botnet.

  6. Hey guys, Billy Mays here! No need for worry, Purple Tinker offered to let LoE host on his server!

    And all for the low, low price of 9,999.99$! But wait, there's more! You also have to suck off his detached penis and pretend he's still relevant in the fandom as the founder of Bronycon, despite the fact that he later got forcibly kicked from his own con!

    Don't worry, purple tinker promises not to skim any money from you! ... this time! [laugh track]

    Don't believe me? Let's hear some testimonies from these trannies who tried our hosting services!

  7. I'm going to wait until things have quieted down, and bugs are worked out, and it's not so crowded.

    So basically, the "no preorders" mentality, even though this is free.
