Italian Based HUD Tester Wanted

We’re looking for someone who based in Italy to help test the SharkScope HUD on various Italian networks and to create accounts there to help our developers fix bugs etc.

If you interested please contact It will most likely require only an hour a week and the tester will get free access to the HUD and $100 a month.

SharkScope Server Outages

Unfortunately SharkScope has been experiencing intermittent connectivity issues over the past 48 hours due to a DDOS attack targeting an unrelated website at the data center used to host
our servers.

The data center we use is one of the largest providers of such services with a global network and multiple redundancies.
Sadly however, not even the most well resourced companies are immune from the effect of a sophisticated DDOS attack. We are following up closely with our provider and keeping the pressure on to restore stability to the site.

Fortunately, no game results were lost due to these connectivity
issues as we have other redundancies in place.

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience to the effected users.
