What are the facts of the whole thing?

The rest of the ‘details’ page is an extended FAQ section which I’ll simplify for you here:

  • Special Reserve Games was hit with a Distributed Denial-of-service (DDoS) attack (Wikipedia)
  • Special Reserve Games was not hacked
  • No customer accounts or personal details were compromised
  • The site didn’t crash the site because of unexpected fan traffic
