An Update on Recent Events

Posted by The Toontown Team on July 5, 2020 at 2:00 PM

It's no secret that over the past few weeks you may have experienced frequent and sudden disconnections from the Toontown game servers. This was not an isolated incident -- it was part of a greater distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against our servers, organized by bad actors within the Toontown Community. Our Technical Toons sprung into action to help prevent the attacks. Our single most priority was to get you back into Toontown as quickly as possible, while also focusing on long-term server stability.

Server Stability Update & Double-XP Weekend!

There were a few occasions where we had to briefly close the game. We did this to help prevent frustration that may have arisen from being disconnected halfway through a facility, boss battle, or a Cog Building. In this difficult time for the world, people came to use Toontown as a safe haven. These attacks stopped you from being able to play, and we sincerely apologize for taking this long to resolve the issues. These attacks are complex, and can't be solved by twisting a few screws, clicking a few buttons, or flicking a few switches.

We understand some of you are frustrated at the time and lost progress due to these attacks. As a result, we're going to be doing two things to help make up for lost time. Firstly, we will be hosting a Double XP Weekend starting Friday, July 10th, at 12:00 AM Toontown Time (PDT) and ending Sunday, July 12th, at 11:59 PM Toontown Time. Both your Gag XP and your Cog Promotion XP (Merits, Cogbucks, Jury Notices and Stock Options) will be doubled during this event!

In addition, next weekend we will be hosting 6 giveaways on our Discord server, with a combined total of 133 winners! This will include an old fan-favorite piece of exclusive clothing from the archives, so you won't want to miss out.

We can't thank you enough for being patient with us while we endured and worked to mitigate these attacks. We may not be able to turn back time, but we hope the festivities of next weekend will help make amends.

Be sure to check back to the blog next Friday (July 10th) for more information on the upcoming Double XP and giveaway weekend!

Toons of the world, UNITE!

There are no words that can express my gratitude and indeed the gratitude of so many for ensuring that we can all find our escape and safe haven in TTR. Thank you all for the exceptional time and efforts given to all of us to keep us all safe. Giving even more to us with the double XP and Discord give-aways is truly appreciated. In reality, WE should be giving YOU the rewards!

I don’t always like how ttr handles things but this is probably the best way anyone could have addressed the ddoss’s.

Nice, Now I can train my drop, And my soundless toon's gags!

Weird Curly Megaquack said on July 7, 2020 at 12:45 PM
I disconnected a lot last week, but always assumed it was the fault of my computer or some sort of bug in Rewritten's system. Had no idea something of this magnitude was going on. My kudos to the TTR team for handling this in such a calm and reasonable manner. Also - who doesn't love Double XP, am I right? ;)

Flapjack Blubberknees said on July 7, 2020 at 2:38 PM
I say triple it.Make these attackers more angry. Its sad to see a nice server get ddosed by other members of the same community.I'm pretty sure i know where the hate originates.

Rudolph said on July 7, 2020 at 3:54 PM
Thank you so much for working on this problem! Sometimes the lag is so bad I get kicked off before even getting to play! It's been really frustrating, but I'm grateful for the work you're doing! Thank you so much and keep being Toontastic!

Silly RoRo said on July 7, 2020 at 6:43 PM
Always worth the wait!!!

mojo-jojo said on July 7, 2020 at 7:27 PM
I'm so glad to hear some news!!!! Thank you for letting us all know about the troubles the ToonTown Community is facing, and I can't WAIT to play again!!!!!!!

Captain Bumblepop said on July 7, 2020 at 9:24 PM
This is amazing! Again im so excited this game has been brought back to life. My daughter and I are both enjoying it sooo much.

Roxy Laffenglow said on July 7, 2020 at 10:24 PM
Thank you for fighting to keep toontown available to us, it means so much. I'm excited for the weekend XP boost!!

Werecat said on July 8, 2020 at 7:46 AM
No worries just glad you took care of those undercover cogs~ My birthday is coincidentally on the 10th so the XP boost is like an extra gift. :-)

Kitsch said on July 9, 2020 at 7:51 AM
Real nice of you guys to do this especially since it's not your fault the servers got DDoS'd. Hopefully I can finally train my toon up :-)
