I thought I'd make this thread to save confusion and save people the time is takes to trawl through other threads. I also hope I am correct with my information:
Why is Remmington Server down:
the Wakfu Remmington Server is currently suffering from what's known as a DDoS Attack [edit: You will get a phishing warning, however, this is simply a link to a wikipedia page]
What is a DDoS Attack:
A DDoS Attack is when an individual or group is effectively spamming the server to the point of overload. This disrupts service to players in this case. it is unlikely that you will be able to log in through all the traffic. There was a time when League of Legends EU West server, for example, suffered massively for the same reason.
Why isn't Dathura, Nox or any other server affected:
the DDoS attack is focused on Remmington server, which has no connection with the other community servers.
When will Remmington be back online:
At this point, It is entirely unknown. These kind of attacks are difficult to counteract as they vary in execution. Ankama also uses a 3rd party host for their servers, which is regularly a cause of delays.
Compensation because we pay to play!?:
Its possible Ankama will extend some form of compensation package, but ultimately this event was outside of Ankama's control, other than the argument that says 'it is a failure on either their, or the 3rd party host providers' part to ensure water-tight security.'
I hope this is helpful, accurate and clears things up for people
Good luck Ankama and know that you have our full support and endless patience from the older players like me.
( From my experience the competitor must have payed a hacker company who like most will have few hijacked servers worldwide and a base in Ukr or Ch, why dont ban all CH / Ukr network and manually blacklist any highjacked server ip sets in Europe or Ru that DDoS you? I guess it must be more complicated ....)
