WoW hit by DDoS attacks attributed to Lizard Squad [Resolved]

You thought wrong.

Bad news for players looking to log into World of Warcraft or Blizzard’s other online games. The studio shared that it’s been weathering DDoS attacks this evening that have caused issues with the authentication servers.

“It looks like we experienced a potential DDoS on one of our datacenters,” Blizzard posted on the forums. “Initial impact appears to have ended and our engineers put up some buffers to resolve the issue, and realms should start recovering. We’re continuing to monitor and work on mitigating the impact. Apologies for the inconvenience, and we’ll be sure to provide updates as they continue to come in.”

Update: Everything’s back to normal now. Lizard Squad took credit, though who knows whether that’s legit.

I said ‘if’, moron.

And complaining about ad hominem attacks when you’ve pretty much done nothing here but smear your digital monkeyshit all over the comments section is hilarious.

By idiots maybe.  In reality he was a papist and a dupe for Spain.

BritoBruno Dreema I’m not trying to justify anything. Just saying I don’t have any sympathy for Blizzard these days. 

Feel free to reply to that IN CAPITALS for reading comprehension if you like.

Tethyss NoctisGray Yes, but it wasn’t from the pservers this time. They normally do this between themselves. Blizzard is another issue entirely. No one is dumb enough to attack Blizzard.
At least the server owners aren’t.

Risu Not linked. They used the pserver as a excuse.

Estranged Yeah. That’s why everytime someone gets to know me, my usual phrases are: I’m a dick, or i’m a idiot. Because i’m not going to dismiss my hypocrisy and issues, and political correctness as the rule. Nor am i going to shove it down other people’s throat.
The world is a big place. There’s room for everyone. While i find it hard to find sympathy towards people who don’t like different folk, i’m also not idiotic enough to do the same thing that people did to him. We break walls to get together, not to build a bigger wall.

Estranged Agreed. I’m not the kind of guy to ask for beatdowns, kneecaps, tortures or “KILL ALL THE BANDIT SCUM, #MAKEAMERICAGREATAGAIN”
But i want the rule of law to be the main purpose here. They commited a crime. They need to be prosecuted and pay for it.
And it wasn’t a pserver creation, which is just a crime without ethical issues. Their crime are way more harmful.

Sythalin wjowski nuallo I think wjow is just justifying a remark, but Nost actually shunned Lizard’s actions, so we’re all good.

Jack Pipsam Jalek Pandaria was gorgeous, if you could stop being a prick and seeing pandas everywhere. Beautiful, questlines were glorious, Vol’jin was a major character, Wpvp was actually decent, and when Timeless came, it thrived.
But people only saw pandas. Sometimes i agree with Blizzard in the regard that their players are a bit on the idiot side.
