Users were not able to log into Battle.net in order to access games such as Overwatch and COD Warzone.
Blizzard was recently attacked by hackers. The attack was caused by denial of service (DDoS), and caused overcrowding of the servers of the company, preventing users of Battle.net from logging in.
According to Blizzard the coordinated attack is over. All users will be able log in to Battle.net again normally.
Users had trouble logging in to their Blizzard accounts for almost an hour on Wednesday November 24th.
Overwatch, Call Of Duty Warzone, Heratstone and Diablo online functions were the main culprits.
Reddit, Twitter and other social media networks began to post memes. They also complained about the problems this was causing.
Via Twitter, Blizzard stated that the problem was caused by a massive DDoS attack, where it added the “Breaking News” element, with the intention of calming down its followers.
The company stated in the same notice that Battle.net servers were under attack. Therefore, they needed to wait patiently.
Logging in took users more than 40 minutes, as they were waiting in a long line to gain access to their accounts.
A warning would also appear if you attempted to log in during an attack.
DownDetector reports that some users did not have any problems with the attack on Battle.net.
Experts claim that users who managed to log in were connected because of their low latency connections and huge disconnections from other players.
It is evident that the interruption was not complete and affected only countries with poor internet quality or very few users.
