June 22, 2018 DDoS attack

Once again this channel has become the victim of DDoS attacks by iBreezyy, I decided seeing as this is apparently going to be a regular situation, I wouldn't be ending the stream when getting hit with them anymore, I would let them continue to gather statistics from the attacks & allow a build of videos to be uploaded to YouTube every time they affected the stream (they may kill the streams or making them unviewable, but the severity is not enough to disconnect me from online games, only cause some lag), every stream & video ends up being used as evidence regarding the attacks & linked to the regularly updated article regarding the attacks started back in February when I first had the misfortune of getting griefed by this individual in Fortnite (it's continued since then after the video of that griefing was published online).  There was at least 13 disconnects from Twitch servers during this attack (I can't say for certain because I lost track, could have been over 15).

I contacted my ISP tonight while the stream was still running, attempting to trace the source of the attacks so an internet crimes report could be filed against him, through subpoena against Twitch if necessary (this seems to be the only time that Twitch actually listens to reports I file against users, when they realize I have gotten the law involved).  I was disconnected from the representative several times during the call, due to the fact that it's a VOIP phone line, so the DDoS attacks on the modem was also disconnecting the phone.  I pointed out the drops in connection only happen when I'm doing a Twitch stream, which gives good motive of being iBreezyy doing it to interrupt my streams, a legal adviser I spoke to about this agreed with me, but stated I still needed more evidence to have a subpoena issued for his arrest, this is why I left the stream going when I contacted my ISP, so they could get the IP address of where the attacks were coming from.  After rebooting my modem & having to call back to get a second representative (the first one stopped attempting to call back after all the disconnects), they stated they are sending a technician in the morning, this may result in a new modem, meaning a new IP address well.  He also stated there would be about a $30 credit issued towards my bill due to the connection problems.

The next call I make will be to my local police, along with a complaint to ic3.gov, where the next complaint to Twitch will include a case number, officer's name & district of police, as it did back when I was getting death threats from PSN user EPICMINECRAFT25 (he disappeared between a week or 2 after that, a subpoena was issued for his personal information after that report was filed; I can't say for certain where it went, I suggested the subpoena be filed against PSN, it may have been filed against Twitch due to the fact this is where the death threats were being made).  Once the law is involved, iBreezyy will be guaranteed to have his Twitch acocunt perma-banned, however he should be more concerned about jail time when it gets to that point; he many be laughing at the idea that he could spend time in jail for it, but I know it to be a fact, a 16 year old was sentenced to 2 years after doing the same thing.

It was determined that due to the fact I had the wrong audio device selected when I started this stream (resulting in no game audio in the stream or recorded videos), I would not be uploading the videos showing results of what happened during the DDoS attack, this will be different when the streams are properly getting audio however.

As has been stated before, full details on the vendetta from iBreezyy can be found here.

UPDATE:  Xfinity Technician came by, determined there was no problem with the lines, showing him the video stuttering in the Past Broadcasts on Twitch (the 5 orphaned videos after the first disconnect) was enough to warrant getting a new modem without question (probably would have had issues proving that otherwise, as the connection was good this many hours after the DDoS attack, it wouldn't be bad until I attempted to stream again).  He gave me his supervisors number in case I have further issues with this problem even after the modem replacement, he thinks it could be a matter on the neighborhood node or the main hub if not the modem; I'm pretty certain it's just iBreezyy getting somebody to DDoS the modem because he's pestered a hornets nest (harassed my channel for over 4 months in retaliation to the video of him griefing on 2/19/2018) & he don't like the results of his actions, so he's resorting to illegal actions to continue his vendetta with a facade on his own channel & through false reports (by himself & others he has doing it for him) he thinks is going to work in his favor.
