Continued DDoS attacks plague Evil Geniuses causing league forfeits

Another wave of DDoS attacks brings the Evil Geniuses Dota team to its knees, causing forfeits in the ASUS DreamLeague.


This article was originally published on GameSpot's sister site, which was dedicated to esports coverage.

Last week onGamers reported on DDoS attacks bringing down Evil Geniuses' training facilities network. The malicious attacks continued this week, causing the Evil Geniuses Dota squad to postpone and forfeit matches as league organizers and fans grew increasing frustrated with the situation.

Both Matthew 'CyborgMatt' Bailey and Richard 'R1CH' Stanway have attempted to reach out to the Evil Geniuses organizations to assist with their issues, but despite these efforts the problems have persisted.

The Evil Geniuses squad will travel to Columbus, Ohio tomorrow for the Major League Gaming Championship beginning on Friday. They'll head into the tournament on the heels of a forfeiture to sister-team Alliance, who they had bested earlier in the season, in the ASUS DreamLeague.
