Blizzard Servers Targeted By DDoS Day#2

Recommended Posts

AHC770UXWJ7Z1376505580138.jpg

Blizzard servers continue being victims of DDoS attacks for a second time during less than 24 hours.

First Attacks

It's been a busy day for Legion yesterday. The release of the Emerald Nightmare, World Bosses and Mythic+ dungeons, you all know it. 15 hours ago, the service providers began being affected by DDoS attacks. These usually cause immense in-game lag, disconnects and not being able to reconnect afterwards. The servers were attacked for almost two hours until this issue got resolved. Here are the corresponding tweets from Blizzard's Customer Service.

 
 

Attack #2

While this time is really strange for attacking (5 AM EST) the attackers continue with a second wave. 

 

Many players are reporting loss of Ancient ManaAncient Mana Withered Army Training and all the issues that come with disconnects such as losing Mythic KeystoneMythic Keystone.

It's unknown if there will be more attacks in the coming hours, but we'll keep you updated. In the meantime, you can read the discussion on reddit and follow BlizzardCS on Twitter for further updates.

yeah im pretty butthurt by these attacks, at the end of my first mythic + keystone dungeon with my group, we all got hit with a lag spike from it, my latency shot up to like 3k, so as I was trying to bash buttons and burn the boss nothing was happening, we failed by three seconds because of it. 3. seconds. time was 30:03. All five of us rage quit at that point. 

even then its like why do this? are you so mad that blizz changed something in the game? it's like the DDOS ers have come childish rage that won't get over.

I agree with this.  I mean, really, what point is this making?  It's senseless and childish.  This isn't some political cyber attack or some kind of big message.  It's a few jerks who want to ruin other people's fun.

      We're getting a bit of a revamp to our favorite launcher, with a lot more overview over all its aspects, from the games themselves (with the Activision ones thankfully being given a bit less prominence), the friends list and more! And we can all try it out right now!
      Check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub for all the latest details!
      Battle.net App Beta (source)
      We’ve been hard at work on new features for the Battle.net Desktop App, and we wanted to show you a preview of what we’re developing. Starting today, anyone who’s opted in to test Battle.net updates can try out our beta.

      Though we’re improving the look and feel of Battle.net, we also want to keep this preview familiar and easy to use. Here’s what to expect.
       
      The most obvious difference between the beta and its full-release sibling is a refreshed user interface. We’ve heard many of you loud and clear: You want more control over your game navigation, and you’d like your friends and chats to be easily accessible. You’ll also notice that we’ve updated the stories view for each game, so you can see more recent updates and highlights. To see all the updates in the Battle.net beta, check out our patch notes.

      If you didn’t sign up to test new versions of Battle.net, but you want to, log into the Battle.net Desktop App, head to the “Beta” menu in "Settings", and opt in to try future patches before they’re officially released.

      We’ll continue making the Battle.net App more user-friendly, more informative, and more customizable. We want it to help you connect with your friends and play games quickly and easily.

      If you have any thoughts about what would make the app a better experience for you, please use the app forums to send us your feedback.

      We’ll see you in-game!

      Blizzard is currently investigating an issue affecting their authentication servers, as players around the world are unable to log into Battle.net.

      Blizzard is aware of the issue and they're working on a fix. Follow BlizzCS on Twitter for more updates!

      Blizzard is expanding their gifting service by allowing you to send Blizzard Balance to your friends!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Struggling to find the perfect gift for a friend, or just hoping to give them the flexibility to choose their own gifts?
      We’re expanding our gifting service by allowing you to send Blizzard Balance to your friends, offering you the benefits of retail gift cards in a new and easy-to-use digital format.
      Sending Balance gifts is simple: visit the Blizzard Shop, select one of the suggested values—or enter a custom amount, click the “Gift Balance” button, and select a friend.

      Blizzard will deliver your gift along with a notification and personalized message directly to your friend, who can then claim the digital gift card balance onto their account.

      As with other gifts, you’ll receive an email and a notification in the Blizzard App when a friend sends you Blizzard Balance, informing you that the gift has arrived and is ready to be claimed.
      Giving the gift of Blizzard Balance is a fast and easy way to ensure that your friends and family will get the Blizzard product that they want most.
      Happy Gifting!
