    Over the past 48 hours numerous online games have come under sustained DDoS attacks by a group calling themselves LizardSquad.

    Today Blizzard and BattleNet has been the focus of their attention taking services down for both Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft.

    The WoW forums received an update saying they were “aware of the current connection issues and that we’re working to resolve them as soon as possible”. Threads continue to also pop up on the official forums from frustrated Diablo 3 players.

    This is just one of those things you’re going to have to sit our I’m afraid until Blizzard sort it out. If you can’t get on or the connectivity is just unstable why not pop into the forums and join the rest of us.


    Update: Blizzard’s tech support has been tweeting updates, but they’ve got nothing much to say other than that they’re working on it. I added the relative times to the tweets to show the progress of destruction throughout Saturday and into Sunday morning.

    20:00: We have made significant progress in stabilizing our servers. The situation has become far less hazardous for everyone. –@BlizzardCS Retweeted by @Diablo

    23:00: We know the network issues have started affecting everyone again in the last few minutes. Thanks again for your patience. #BlizzCS –@BlizzardCS Retweeted by @Diablo

    01:00: We are dealing with a new wave of issues with our servers. We thank you for your patience as we continue to work towards a solution. –@BlizzardCS Retweeted by @Diablo

    If there’s a silver lining, we can be glad this didn’t happen next week(end?) when Patch 2.1 was live and far more fans wanted to get in and try out the new stuffs?
