Among Us Responds To DDoS Attack That Sabotaged Servers And It's Refreshingly Hilarious
On March 26th, many players were disappointed to learn that they could not connect to the servers for the game. Later in the day, the official Twitter account made a post regarding the issue. The post stated that the servers are still down, but they are working to "...fix the DDoS sabotage." It included a pretty entertaining image with one of their characters seemingly apathetically just saying "Dang" in response to the servers being down.

Later on one of the people responding posted that the developers of the game are "...the only professional company to get hacked and then go 'lol we've been sabotaged.'". To which Among Us developers responded with "reject professionalism embrace giving up."
Other users buying some of the in-game currency experienced failed transactions. The team of course reimbursed anyone who didn't receive their goods, or made sure the transactions got processed. The problem did eventually get resolved with mitigation efforts put in place by Inner Sloth and its vendors. It did make for a fun few hours of Twitter conversation while the servers were down, though.
