    This is here for a reason, the community on WarZ just love to ddos. I am making this tutorial to help everyone, as getting ddosd is just very annoying. P.S. no download is needed.

    It's the most simple thing you will see, it tricks the resolver into thinking your ip is 127.0.0.1 , where as your ip has not changed at all, in fact.

    Basically all you need to do is go to Your 'Tools' On the skype toolbar at the top [ http://gyazo.com/cc983af0f028ebb19c1e15d77eaa28de ]

    Then go to the 'Options' which is at the bottom of the 'Tools' Bar.

    Now in this options menu, click 'Advanced' Like I did in this Picture: http://gyazo.com/3b174005012b226881a19291c719c251

    Now, find your self to 'Connection' and fill it out exactly like this [ http://gyazo.com/6ad863ef078903283bd569f03b8f7c56 ]

    Host: 127.0.0.1
    Port: 40031
    Use Port 80 & 443 = Tick
    Enable UPNP & Allow direct connections... = Tick.

    Hope this helps you guys :grinning:
    I understand this may be inappropriate to post, but I decided to help people who are having problems with ddos. This should hide your ip from most of the resolvers.
    Enjoy Guys. :grinning:.

    Edit: If This helped.. please leave a thanks! :grinning:

    THANK YOU GOOD SIR.

    Oh, and pnspi, a lot of the time, when you're teamed with someone and you give them your Skype, often times they'll give your Skype to others in hopes of making larger teams, who could give it to a potential DDoSer, which could get you derpdossed if you're ever in a battle with him/her.

    If the team has threats of ddos, I'd kinda stay away from them.
    Doesn't sound like an actual good team.

    A lot of people betray you, and once betrayed your skype goes to one person, and it's like a plague.. they give it to everyone, ddosing is a problem to a lot of people on this server, and I posted this in aid to help those who do suffer DDOS attacks.
    No need to flame. Just helping.

    You're welcome. Glad I helped you. Players also obtain skype names using the 'search' option and search your player name, usually people can get your skype this way, so I'd reccomend making it something else, mine is just 'Monkeh' and lot's of people are sure to use a name like this, so the search will be full and they will not bother searching through it all. :grinning:.
    You never know though, you could be playing warz and team with someone on random, who is friends with a ddoser, and then you kill them and they will get mad, and you will be ddosd. it's all it takes.. Only posting this to help people, again.

    Again, again, I bring up the issue of trust.
    Your post is a clear solution to problems, but only to ones that can be sometimes simply avoided by not just communicating with random people you meet on the Internet.
    If you do get in a mishap, follow the OP.

    It's not just war-z I get DDosed by players from survival as well. Also yeah if someone betrays you then you obviously havn't been friends with them for a long time or you made them mad.

    This method hides your IP from all resolvers on the internet, for a fact I and many friends have tried this ( a skype restart is required ) and have all given me positive feedback on the method. : )

    You're dumb and you should feel dumb.
    Those VOIP packets travel from your network to theirs, you're attempting to use YOUR LOCAL MACHINE ON YOUR OWN NETWORK AS A 'PROXY'; the packets STILL travel from your network.
    Again, you're dumb and you should feel dumb.
