Dota 2’s International interrupted by DDoS attacks

    
44

If you managed to catch any of Dota 2’s $18 million International 2015 yesterday, you may have seen players sitting around scratching their heads instead of killing each other’s avatars. Valve’s big e-sport event was interrupted by DDoS attacks almost from the outset.

The day’s first match between evil Geniuses and compLexity Gaming was hit with severe lag and paused shortly thereafter, with the delay topping 45 minutes during which announcers confirmed the DDoS shenanigans.

Zulika_Mi_Nam Sorenthaz  Lol. If only I had that kind of money to attend that stuff live.  That’s a pretty dang awesome thing of them to do though.  Great way to reveal a 10v10 mode and also get the fans involved.

Sorenthaz Zulika_Mi_Nam Man the only thing that would make a fuller Dota week for you would be being there and getting picked for this all star thing that is happening right now

PurpleCopper  Which doesn’t make sense because the players all paused and complained about lag.

Boroming  Because hundreds of thousands of people prefer to watch DotA 2 from within the game’s spectator system.

annoyedbadger Boroming Uh no in this case it was a DDOS.  The players paused the game complaining about lag.

Sorenthaz Zulika_Mi_Nam although I wanted to see them all live, I missed that one along with most of the earlier games so I thought everything was groovy.
Its a bad work week too, not even able to check in to see what is up during the day, so when I do get home at like 7PM est I am glued the rest of the night.
