The hacker group known as DERP took aim today at a League of Legends player known as Phantomlord. The group systematically DDOSed and took down every game Phantomlord tried to play including League of Legends, World of Warcraft, as well as and Club Penguin.

[blockquote cite=”Reddit”]For those who don’t know about the current situation:
A group called DERP is apparently DDoSing League of Legends NA/EU/OCE servers. They also took down Dota 2, Club Penguin,, They are taking down whatever game Phantoml0rd is playing (or perhaps, trying to play rolf). Most recent event is Phantoml0rd playing on OCE with stream fans and they took it down.
Phantoml0rd is going to talk with them on skype vent soon. Watch the stream if you would like to see more. EDIT: Conversation done. You can find it in my post under the “Stream events”.
PhantomL0rd’s Stream Events:
Note: Phantoml0rd claim he does not support nor encourage this behavior. He’s just tumbling on this opportunity to try establish a connection with DERP group to know more about their motives. He said so on his stream. My post is just trying to give the information to keep everyone up to date, I’m not trying to criticize anyone.[/blockquote]

  • Alira

    The format of this report hurts my eyes.

    • Nick

      So true..

  • Ehren

    This shit is crazy!

  • Cipero

    This seems pretty reckless. Just to troll someone? Behaving like this is what will turn people off from being sympathetic towards their causes when they try to make statements like anonymous tries to do. Behaving like this for no apparent reason will also be what strengthens the cases of those who wish to crack down and restrict the internet.

    • Justin Jacobs

      As a fictional character once said. “Some people just want to watch the world burn.”

    • ratzfatz

      This is funny. Since when are Anonymous the good guys? I sympathize with them but the very foundation of Anonymous is pure chaos and lulz.

      Well, this is partly true because Anonymous isn’t a group, it’s more like an idea and everyone can claim to “act in the name of Anonymous”.

      • Cipero

        Well, the attacks they carry out are for the most part statements about social and cultural issues. However this is completely different. It’s more of just random chaos “because we can”, which is just pushing the limits for no reason, until someone else (the government) inevitably decides enough is enough and regulates it.

        • Javier Vega

          Well,it looks like this is a job for TeaMp0isoN you think DDoSing is great art form of making you a great hack group then try claiming it to them and see what happens when Derp will be another sinking ship.

          • Cipero

            I didn’t mean it like that. I don’t consider anything hacking related to be great. I just meant regular people will feel more sympathetic if group A hacks big corporate american business A because they are ripping off the people. But if people are just hacking and ddosing just because they can then that is when people will end up supporting legislation that will aim to stop it, which would probably introduce widespread regulations and will suck for all of us.

          • Javier Vega

            Well,they are targeting base on who text them the target so they are very much a Hitman for hire.


    wait…how does geting ddosed on a video game lead to the cops putting him in handcuffs and searching his home? im guessing the only way this could happen is if the DERP group called and made a false claim in order to get them to his home

    • Grimfyre

      That’s what I’m thinking

    • tora

      DDoSing is illegal, and they DDoSed big companies, PL spoke with them, police are getting intel from PL, his PC etc. They’re committing cyber terrorism.

      • PIRATE or NINJA

        well thanks for pointing out the obvious that ddos is a no no.
        so DERP is ddosing, not PL or at least thats how the article makes it seem. Unless the DDOSing is coming from PL himself then i dont see what the police hope to get out of this. if you or me started streaming and then some hackers started watching and ddosing anything we tried to play then i would not expect the cops to come to my or your door and look for anything.

        • Shyguy

          They can take peoples bank details, so the police need to stop it…

          • PIRATE or NINJA

            …but they arent attacking PL so why go to PL house. the attack isnt coming from PL so they cant stop it by going to his house. if they want to stop it then they need to go to where the attack is originating from or where its destination is. if PL wanted to stop all this or protect himself from being attacked all he had to do was STOP broadcasting like a tard egging them of and disconnect his network for the day or however long it takes. they arent going to stop anything by going to his house and harrasing him UNLESS he is in league(no pun) with these hackers and orchestrating the whole thing. even if it didnt start out that way it seems more and more like he just decided to roll with it and use the hype created to profit/get more popular. and yes i mean profit, since he has a 4.99 sub on his channel im sure this has resulted in a few ppl buying in just so they can be a part of this whole mess.


            It doesn’t fucking matter. Cyber Terrorism is a crime. These fuckers should be hung. You think this is a motherfucking game?

          • PIRATE or NINJA

            are u blind or did u just not read my post at all? i never said they shouldnt be stopped. sheesh i cant even reply to your comment its just so full of blind rage it doesnt even make sense as a reply to what i said.

          • Bored

            The police coming to his house had little to do with the DDOSing. PL was streaming this and giving the “hackers” an audience by chatting with them. This made some people ridiculously angry, so someone DOXed him and someone called the police to report a hostage situation in order to stop PL from streaming.
            It twas a crazy day.

          • PIRATE or NINJA

            see that makes perfect sense, thanks for replying with clarity instead of blind rage.

      • PIRATE or NINJA

        unless PL connected to them directly then they wont get much from his PC. they would have better luck getting info like this from skype or vent servers that hosted the chat they communicated with.

  • Razzly

    This is the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. Those “DERP” douches need to get a hobby-holy effing shit.


      i think this is their hobby…..

    • Travis Christensen

      DERP should be more like Anonymous and take down companies for bad mistakes and not just for lolz.

    • 9073

      mad bro?

  • dhorgan21

    I just want to play league…

    • LoL


      • hepa

        no u

  • Kasern

    Just had an automatic pointed at him, put in handcuffs and taken away? And they left him his phone so he could post it to FaceBook? Not a chance. They wouldn’t even have given it back to him down at the cop shop until they were certain they whole thing was a prank. When someone’s life might be in danger (in this case the fake hostage) they would never risk allowing him to contact accomplises.

    • Fleng

      mayby he wrote this after he was out of his cuffs.. you moron

      • Kasern

        Yes, I’m the moron for being skeptical of a poorly reported internet fuss.

        • PIRATE or NINJA

          no you are an idiot for injecting info into it that was never said in the article. they never said he was taken away, the fact that he posted anything makes that obvious.

          • Kasern

            Jesus. Did all the DERP from the dude’s stream flock to the only site willing to report this crap?

            Come on, another Twitch streamer being “arrested” so soon after the last one? Does anyone else smell viewer grab stunt?

        • jeanmarc brown

          Well said.

    • NOOB

      He never stated he was taken away….he said he was put in the back of a cop car while 6 cops searched his house. Also, if he was in handcuffs they certainly did not cuff him in the front and hand him his phone. He most likely sent this after the cops realized there was no hostage.

      tl;dr l2comprehendengrish

  • Ryan Mick

    that would be funny if the hackers got sent to jail for the lolz

    • Ryan Mick2

      it would be even more funny if they took fbi website down XD.

  • Christopher A Fejes

    I don’t even see the point of doing this. Am I in the very vast minority who has morals and a sense of justice these days? If you use a “skill” you have for the greater good, that’s one thing; if you use it to terrorize for no reason… All I can ask is WHY? Why would you interrupt games that people put so much time and effort in, or even pay for, JUST to get at one person? The fact that these people can do this w/out a second thought, clearly means they care for no one… not even themselves. Turn yourselves in and just fade into the darkness.

    • JD

      This does not take skill. Anyone with a credit card and very basic knowledge of the internet can do this.

      • Christopher A Fejes

        I know it takes no skill; learning to ping an IP is like the first thing everyone does to their friends when they take a semi-sophisticated IT program. It just steams my buns that for a group of “well known” hackers; they can’t target one simple MAC or IP Address, instead of screwing everyone else in the process?

    • Hepa

      The fact that you just used “w/out” in a normal paragraph shows you clearly care for no one. :P

  • yeulx

    Would be funny if the hackers actually had a life instead of being faggots

  • sionus

    “Hacker Group” DDOSing does not make you a “hacker.” It makes you a group of kids who learned how to flood a network.

    You’re giving them entirely too much credit here.

    • Xenos

      They managed to find all the server IPs, and also hacked into Phantoml0rd’s Twitch account. I think the credit is due.

      • sionus

        If you think finding the IP addresses of a bunch of servers equates to “hacking,” I don’t know what to tell you; and where does is say they hacked into his Twitch account?

  • Danny ‘Shingara’ Goy

    if the cops got called to his house that shouts to me one of two things, they hacked his computer which i dont think they had done because otherwise they would attack his pc and not ddos everything he goes onto or he knows someone who is in derp.

    Either way this is just wrong and way overboard.

    • Natasha

      I’m pretty sure it was some kid crying that he couldn’t get on league so called the cops on him about some stupid hostage thing. If he didn’t know the address, the police would of gotten it from him if they thought the situation was serious enough.

    • Raptor

      No, someone called either the emergency hotline or his local police (similar to what happened to swifty recently) and called an emergency hostage situation, ofc the police are going to respond to something that big with force. The hackers wouldnt need to get on anyones computers to do that, an im quite sure they probably didnt do it, but more likely a viewer.

  • Steve Zakar Zadoorian

    All of this is so sad

  • Kaidenn

    The cops should find these “DERP” faggots and lock them up and record the whole thing so we can watch as they freak out. I love fucking around and trolling people just as much as anyone else but there’s a certain line you don’t cross and they went wayyyy to far lol.

    • Dularr

      Apparently, the cops were questioning folks at the Starbucks they were using for operations.

  • DoDoDo Ro

    Seems video games are serious business…

  • Bbiribbom

    What a bunch of gigantic faggots

  • Jason Taylor

    well if you can believe their twitter feed they took down all internet in north korea

  • 1mirg

    world of tanks NA is offline now, according to them

  • Christopher A Fejes

    In retrospect…Has it occurred to anyone else that perhaps PhantomL0rd isn’t himself, innocent? If he is being targeted by this group of “hackers,” and knows that he is… Why would he A. Not contact the police himself sooner, and B. (This one I cannot stress enough) Why would he keep logging on different games, if he already knows the end result of the warchalking attack?

    Couldn’t it be said that he may have initiated the attack, is staging said attack or even that he perhaps is/was a member of said group, who was perhaps being punished and/or hazed?

    • WizardOfVoices

      I already posted a thread about this on the League of Legends forums when it started, all of his fans started to attack me.

      Honestly, he has too big a fan base for anyone to see the real picture (your theory) fuck him, his fans and the hackers.

      • Kamiken

        He makes money streaming games. If he couldn’t stream games and play with his fans he isn’t making money. If you were in a business like that you would do everything in your power to keep doing the things that make you money which include changing which game he is playing because it is down. When he was sure it wasn’t a coincidence he tried contacting them. These people were going to do whatever they were going to do regardless of what he did. It just happens they chose him to be the basis of what they targeted.

        • AnonymousCoward

          What better way to make more money than be to become even more famous than by being the target. Everyone in every game that goes down will know who you are, and then bam – subscribers.

          • GB Failing Hard

            isn’t being a victim the fastest way t0 be famous. muricans should know about it…… eems u are the victims in evrything you do. :/

          • Adrian87

            “[6:20PM] 100,000 viewers!” Guess you’re right.

    • Craine

      You understand that you are just blaming the victim right? And you also understand how it is pretty fucked up to blame the victim, correct? I don’t like phantom’s stream, I think he is pretty annoying, but to blame him is just ignorant. He should be allowed to play video games anytime he wants, and not have to worry about people taking down the servers because he is on them.

    • Xenos

      He’s just a kid who streams games, do you expect him to always make an intelligent choice? It doesn’t mean he was in anyway trying to exploit what the hackers were doing (even if he ended up doing that inadvertently).

    • Alec

      I was moved by PL’s explanation of the day’s events that he gave on his stream. It’s also floating around Youtube somewhere. If he had foreknowledge of this attack, he should be a freaking Hollywood actor if he could fake the emotions I felt coming from him on the stream.

    • Blow me

      I agree we should delete his account and ban his IP and make sure he never plays games again.

  • Mattias Wejde

    I only want to play some games :/

  • Jeroen

    I know its pathetic to threaten physical harm against someone on the internet but man I am mightily fighting the urge to not say “I wish i met one of those bastards tonight so I cant send some of my own attacks to his face”

  • SevenWhite7

    All I’m saying is that people who do this kind of shit piss me off to the degree of Law Abiding Citizen.
    Basically, I’d like to tie them all up, cut them to pieces bit by bit while they are still alive and feeling everything, film it and show their families and pay attention to every detail of their reactions and just watch their whole lives fall apart.
    So, no, it doesn’t really make me mad or anything.
    Ok, maybe just a little bit.

        If you think simplistic DDoS attacks and pulling up someone’s name who is all over the internet to get his personal info is “difficult” & “smart stuff”, then you will have fun being less than average.

        • Goobypls

          I’d like to see you take down multiple gaming servers at once with your ‘Simple DDoS attack’.

  • Lea Havoc

    Assholes, ruining it for everyone. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!

  • Ray

    I like the part where they think a multibillion dollar company like EA or Blizz gives a rats ass about some white pasty nerds who think they just nuked Hiroshima..”to make big companies mad” Obviously they will take measures against it but its ridiculous that they actually think some downtime will put even a fucking dent in them. What? you think the EA board of directors and shareholders are gonna “ragequit” their assholish business practices because they what, mildly inconvinienced them, uhum?
    Front page of reddit?! OMG stop the fucking presses!!! who cares about
    those billions of other things more important going on in the world
    right now?! some dorks interrupted a LoL game truly theese are the end
