posted on May 7, 2020


Alright, listen up, soldiers.

SgtRoss here, and we wanted to give everyone an update on our progress with the recent increase in the server crashing.

Many of you have experienced server connectivity issues and we do not take such things lightly.

Our team has been working tirelessly with our partners to ensure these issues are fixed, and we believe we have been able to resolve this issue and will release a hotfix shortly.

We will continue to monitor the situation once the hotfix goes live. If any other infractions occur, we will be sure to let you know.

Again, thank you for your patience and support.

Offworld Out.

Hey squaddies!

We wanted to give you an update on the issues that appeared in Beta 19 on the morning of May 7th. We became aware of increased crashing while accessing the server browser and requested crash dumps from the community.

During the course of the investigation, we were made aware of a denial-of-service attack against Offworld Industries’ infrastructure. The attackers appear to have been using malicious data to impact communication between the Squad client and Steam servers, resulting in the performance degradation you’ve been experiencing.

We are currently investigating a resolution and will continue to mitigate the impact of the attack alongside our partners.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter and thank you for your patience!
