WoW:Warlords of Draenor DDOSed on release

At the time of release of the greatly anticipated game by Blizzard, Warlords of Draenor got anything but an ideal scenario on its first launch. High latency and continuous lags to gamers were the issues in the face of blizzard on the launch date of WoW: Warlords of Draenor. Two main issues were faced by the blizzard team that are still being resolved as you read

Europe being the first region selected by Blizzard fort he WoW:WoD release, witnessed huge traffic which was even beyond their estimation. A flood of gamers logged in to the server that created a high load over the servers designated to Europe. This resulted in lags for the gamers along with disconnection from the server while playing.

 A part was also played by DDoS attacks that came from different regions which worsened the load over Blizzard Servers. This was officially confirmed by Blizzard as well.

Efforts put by Blizzard to overcome the problems was done through redirecting the traffic that was coming from heavily populated areas to come in from other sources in order to divide the load on particular servers of that regions.

Blizzard is working continuously to enhance the gaming experience on their servers with minimum downtime and disconnect ratio. The response of gamers to Warlords of Draenor is still awaited.
