Good news.
I did check now all logfiles from the protected servers and as i can see - since 1st of December 2017 -  there was no other involved in the attacks than Eddie.

And the day before yesterday, while an ongoing attack, i could join all servers with a red cross. After that, the attack was still ongoing, the red crosses went away. Maybe Possessed did something on his end, or another administrator from here. If so, thanks a lot in the name of this community.

And you maybe remember when the server browser did start to not showing the map names of the servers. Then a bit later, the ping went up very high and you could not play anymore. And as i did tell you, it was not because of an attack. The day before yesterday, as this happend again, i could see on the server that 2 servers doing this crazy thing again with maps not showing and high ping. After a look at the big server, i could see that both servers are "paging" like hell. I did check the windows settings and - the pagefile was set to 3 GB. But we have 16 GB. After a small correction of adding 13 GB to the pagefile, it did not happend again. Hopefully this problem is also solved. Just ready for a new beginning and a new year.

And a last thing from my side. Yesterday we had 75 players together online playing this game. So call all your friends and more to tell them that America's Army 2 is still alive. Thank you all - i wish you a happy and successful new year, all the best to you and your families. And enjoy the game, do not forget :)

and here is the proof about the guy who is doing the attacks (at least from yesterday and today):

http://www.mediafire.com/file/ee3yc94bqxp6btz/ddosser_proof.pdf

Ronski, to be honest, this should be enough proof, right? For me it is.

Edit: don't need the answer Ronski, he did already confirm it
I bet he will answer anyway
Of course I'm answering if my name is mentioned.

Good job Merlin, finally you have some serious evidence on what you have been saying all the time. I'm sorry I have been difficult and strictly against your actions but that was because you showed zero evidence before, just similar accusations that I mentioned earlier, accusation with no evidence isn't quite credible.

But now you have it and it's my time to admit that I'm the jerk here. Sorry.

he probably gets erection every time he writes a post on this forum.
Pit, at least I can get one.

as almost every early morning around 02.00, eddie did try another ddos at the protected servers, without any success. but maybe he did also attack other servers as i did read at the shoutbox.
while searching for some informations, i did find another attacker. it was last year, he did it only once, but maybe a warning or a ban should be spoken. here is the proof:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/9bncotgt9nknr0d/ddosPoland1.jpg
http://www.mediafire.com/file/djudx42jp9nji96/ddosPoland2.jpg
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ctb70sw14ygv0so/ddosPoland3.jpg

Remember, the time of the protected server is UTC-5
http://www.mediafire.com/file/zrr2w50qc1plws8/ddosPoland4.jpg

it looks, like ddossing is going to something like "what should i do today, oh a bit ddossing would be fine, because i am a bit angry". DDOS IS A CRIMINAL ACT!! And it costs the community nerves and money for the protection.

Last warning to all doing it. I will scan now every day for such attacks and i will post the results here. What the admins of assist will do with this guy, i don't now. Maybe a lifetime ban, maybe a month. Maybe let us hear the community what to do.

there is a possibility that those entries are not correct (i dont think so, but it could be). because it was of the begining of the protected server start. if so, i would like to say very sorry. if not, do it not again.
thank you.
