We are sorry to inform that the State of the Game stream will not be happening. We are recording it locally and will be releasing a video as soon as possible.
To secure uptime and reliability on the stream I had two connections setup so that if one went down I could immediately connect to the other and continue the stream.
And now, it all sounds good but what went wrong? For the first 15 minutes I were attempting to connect to our stream through my connection 1, and every time we went online it would get shut down by a massive amount of requests. How do I know this was DDOS? I had prepared my ISP for this as they are a rather small company they quickly noticed the increased requests and called me within a few minutes of the first shut-down asking what was happening. Sadly they do not have the capabilities to handle this and decided to simply shut-down my connection 1.
We are, as we speak, recording this locally on my connection 2, which has not been taken down. We could have streamed it from this connection, but due to the risk of this connection getting taken down we decided to just record it locally so we get some content out of this.
I apologize to everyone, ArenaNet and Guru for this.
