Ddoser on my team admitted to dc'ing enemy team. We kicked him, and then proceeded to all get dc'd. Now my router is broken from an unrecoverable error.

Ddoser on my team admitted to dc'ing enemy team. We kicked him, and then proceeded to all get dc'd. Now my router is broken from an unrecoverable error.

Update: "Thomas" from AT&T hooked me up with a new IP address, and taught me some hardcore voodoo magic to super-reset my modem. Got it back up and running just now. Will look into getting a better router. Router problem was solved by the power of Tech-support and (probably) Satan.

I was playing Iron banner with three guys that I knew, and two guys who were someone else's friends. We were stomping hard. Then one game, the entire enemy team DC's and two guys on our team. Then this guy says "sorry, I forgot to flag you two" (referring to the two teammates he accidentally DC'd) Then I'm like, "wait did you just do that." Then he's like, "yeah, and we can get to rank 5 tonight." Instantly, me and my mate are like, "nah, we're good." He proceeds to call us pussies, and describe his 88% win ratio and the 3000 games he's won by ddosing kids. Party leader kicks him mid sentence. Then we all start disconnecting one by one. Within five minutes, my TV, landline and internet are down throughout my house. I go reset my shitty AT&T uverse router, and then all the lights start flashing red on reboot. I then learn from my mobile device that that means my router has experienced an unrecoverable error. If anyone can help, or knows what to do about this kind of thing, it'd be much appreciated. I mostly posted here to vent.

Moral of the story: People apparently do crazy shit to farm IB drops.

EDIT: just looked up this guy's DTR, and he was legit rolling over 80% win avg with double negative K/D and thousands of games. Bungie plz, thought you were on top of this, fam. If a guy this blatantly does this shit and gets away with it, how many kids are doing this shit like once or twice in trials and also getting away with it?

EDIT: /u/Cozmo23 pending to save the day. Also, according to someone else's post, Bungie isn't to blame for not detecting DDoS'ing, as it isn't the same as lag-switching (which is apparently what Bungie has been banning people for lately) and is harder to detect.

So today is April 1st and thus misleading information surrounding games is inevitable. That's the reason behind this post - so that we can have a laugh while not spamming subreddit page with dozens of low effort posts.

Obviously sometimes it is hard to distinguish real info from fake (remember Blood Dragon) so I hope nobody (including mods) will blame you if you post info that seems viable in separate thread.

Anyway let me start with something (I'll also try to add to the main post things other people post in here).
