DDoS attacks are forcing MontanaBlack to cancel the tournament
How did the tournament go? Almost not. At first, everything seemed to be going well. However, delays began later and participants complained about pings ranging from 300 to 400. At first, it was not clear why this was the case, as the servers and the Internet were stable.
At some point, it turned out that DDoS attacks were probably running at an IP address. For almost 2 hours, Haptic, his colleagues and MontanaBlack tried to enter the tournament.

About an hour later, Erie no longer hoped, “If it works, it works. If we have problems again, we will cancel the tournament. ”That is what happened. The streamer stopped the tournament saying:
Nothing can be done now, talk. This is, of course, very, very unfortunate. (…) Haptic has invested so much time and love there with his team, and it is an absolute shame for him right now.
HapticRush, after spending so much time, was clearly surprised and left the traffic for a while. On MontanaBlack, on the other hand, it seemed pretty easy:
I’ll be honest, guys, I’m used to it. You know that DDoS has always been an issue. (…) For example, montanablack.de was a regular geDDoSt when we ran campaigns.
He also appealed to his Twitch colleagues not to be upset because that’s what the DDoSers want to achieve. He then continued his flow as usual, playing Fall Guys and other games with some of the tournament players.
Will the tournament be repeated? Probably not for the first time. In the end, MontanaBlack just said, “Unfortunately, the Black Ops 2 tournament has been canceled for now. (…) This is how it is. We cannot change anything now and we will not be able to change anything. Wipe your mouth and continue – easy as a cake.
