Blizzard Faces DDoS Attacks, All Overwatch Servers Down

Blizzard is once again DDoS attacked which is currently affecting all of its game servers and as a result, no one is able to play any of their games let alone Overwatch.

This time around, the DDoS attack started off with creating login issues for Blizzard players. This is something that happens whenever more IP addresses try to login to the server. As a result, server starts taking the load and randomly starts disconnecting users from the server

But this did not stop for Blizzard’s game servers and with the constant overwhelming load of pings, Blizzard servers faced a crash.

As a result, connection and latency problems are being faced by users and currently 84% Blizzard servers are offline. And not only PC, this problem is faced by console players as well and neither are able to play their favorite games with ease.

More than 1100 reports from users have been made in this regards with almost every NA server currently down.

This isn’t the first time Blizzard has faced something like this with the most recent one being almost 2 years ago of similar mass. We covered it at that time as well and can be viewed on over Blizzard DDoS attack news.
