17th March 2020
That whole dilemma already started that day.
I have to honestly say - everything went great! T S 3 V O I C E has broken more and more user records with its level of awareness and we were extremely proud of that.
On March 16/17, 2020 we cracked the 256 users and were already "full house" at that point. On March 4th, 2020 we reached around ~ 220 users.
What exactly am I trying to say? To put it simply: We were pretty well known in the TeamSpeak public scene, and that in an extremely short timeline. We registered around 45,000 users in our database that day. Other servers without promoting (methods) might have reached this figure after a few years with a mediocre community. We had an advantage that 98% of all other TeamSpeak servers never had - we have several server entries in the integrated TeamSpeak server list. Many users of us have accordingly used this server list to find our server for the first time. On the server list, we had the chance to position ourselves so high in the list that we couldn't be missed.
What happened that day We had a lot of haters, copycats and “hackers” - and with hackers, I'm clearly talking about DDoS 'attackers (read from § 303b computer sabotage in the StGB). The DDoS attacker had or still has an extreme hatred against us. And in order to have to vent his hatred on us, he changed his routine to the following: destroy TS3Voice at all costs! It's hard to imagine ... That a loner can take around 6 to 10 hours a day to constantly launch DDoS attacks at exactly the right moment. But it actually happened that way; the so-called DDoS attacker refused to rest. He didn't want to talk to me (as an admin) or take up other communications - he's trying to hide his identity and destroy his traces at all costs. Personally, I have some assumptions or almost allegations about few people whom I can see as "perpetrators" - but the evidence is constantly mixed up; but not impossible.
Since that day, TS3Voice has in-officially disappeared from the scene without a trace.
