Blizzard Servers Targeted By DDoS Day#2

Recommended Posts

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.

      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!

      In October, Blizzard announced their plans to convert from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net in Canada, Japan and New Zealand. All the changes will be live within the next 24 hours.

      In October, we announced that we’ll be converting from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net® in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. These changes will begin to roll out in these regions within the next 24 hours.
      For players in these regions, Blizzard Balance will be unavailable during the brief update process, but purchases can be made using other payment methods. Any purchases made during this period will be processed in local currency.
      For World of Warcraft® subscribers, the recurring subscription will continue to be charged in USD for the next 12 months. If there’s any interruption to your subscription, however—including an expired card, changes in payment methods, or account cancellations—any new subscriptions will be charged in your local currency.
      We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, and make managing your account with us easier. By switching from USD to local currency, we’re expanding the types of payment we accept and helping some of you avoid paying transaction fees charged by financial institutions.
      Please see our announcement in October for more information and follow @BlizzardCS for the latest updates.
