The DDOS attacks your IP, i believe.  So i would assume you could be DDOS'ed at any time.

Won't help on 360 unless there's a big dashboard update, maybe on Xbox One.
I have a problem with rules and got myself banned. Again.

As long as someone can get your ip you can be ddos'd.
Ice... 15ml lime cordial... 1 dash angostura bitters... 2 oz 100% agave tequila... top off with sprite or 7 up

with the p2p system its easier to find out the other players ip addresses than it is with dedicated servers. In fact if done right, noone should be able to see other ppls ip addresses, but the dedicated server itself.

So if thats what you had in mind- yes dedicated servers are better in that department. Like in many many others (dashboarding is useless, no more host migrations, more stable connection etc.)

You can pull ip addresses from recent players in the dashboard right now so with the current system dedicated servers won't help

The process of finding someone's IP on dedicated and P2P is the same, most people use Cain and Abel. Its really easy and there are 1032948019 tutorials on youtube. Once they have the IP flooding it is super easy.. you can use a botnet, stresser, and many online services do it for a couple $$ a month...That's why you see it so often now.

If you go and join a pre-game lobby and that is on dedicated servers, they will NOT be able to get your IP address.

But, if the system is like it is now for BLOPS2 League Play, everyone connects to a "host" and then he finds the best dedicated server. And if that is the case, then they will be able to get your IP.

Better hope for the first option is all i've got to say.

If you're silly walmart d-link router doesn't give you those options then flash it with DD-WRT or setup a pfsense box.

Or if you really want to be safe... route your xbox through a proxy so they never get your real IP.

Not true, its easy to get pre-game lobby, and in-game in leagueplay.

CBN bought a VPN for 15$ a month that forwards his IP to a random address.. works really well.
