[UPDATE] Battle.Net DDoSed Yet Again


It looks like Battle.Net servers have been DDoSed today (August 24) as well with all of the game servers and community forums down. The issue was acknowledged by Blizzard with the following tweet:

this is the first time that Blizzard servers have been affected by the problem on a back to back basis and as was the situation yesterday, there is no telling as to when the problem is going to be resolved. For now, all of the games that depend on Battle.Net servers are basically unplayable with players locked out until the servers are back up again. More to follow

Original Story was as follows:

It seems like the release of every new World of Warcraft expansion is unlucky for Blizzard as just days before the release of World of Warcraft: Legion, the entire Battle.net platform is faced with yet another compromising attempt from Blizzard haters.

Recently experienced, Blizzard’s platform Battle.net appears to have been DDoSed sabotaging all game servers and platforms across the globe. What started with purchase issues for Blizzard’s card game Hearthstone quickly escalated to things much worse as they tried to rectify the problem.

After almost an hour, issues for all Blizzard related community sites and forums followed with Blizzard still trying to figure things out.

Moments later all Blizzard servers went down the drain as Blizzard reported DDoS attacks over their game servers.

The result is obviously devastating as each and every Battle.net player is standing on the sideline watching the show as Blizzard is continually trying to fix things on their end.


The surprising part is that this is the second time Blizzard is experiencing a DDoS attack after being down on the 3rd of this month as well. Looks like August doesn’t have a good track record for Blizzard as the game developer faced similar trouble in August last year at the release of their expansion World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.

With no remedy to the issue as of yet, all we can do is wait until there is any further official responses from Blizzard in this regards. We are however, still looking for updates in this regards so be sure to check back after a while.
