World of Warcraft Classic servers were hit with a number of DDoS attacks


  • The US World of Warcraft Classic servers were hit with a number of DDoS attacks yesterday evening. Blizzard’s North America customer support team reports that the servers are now back online and stable. The wave of DDoS attacks began yesterday at 3 pm BTS Kotaku reports, and a Twitter account named UkDrillas has claimed credit. The Twitter account would tweet out a warning 30-minutes before each attack but since the take downs, the account has been suspended and the tweets have been deleted. There has been no confirmation if the Twitter account is actually responsible for the DDoS attacks.

    At the time of the attacks, Blizzard confirmed the issues via Twitter and explained that it was actively trying to stop the disruption. “Some online services continue to be impacted by a series of DDoS attacks which are resulting in high latency and disconnections,” the tweet says. “These disruption effects have been felt by a portion of our players, impacting their gaming experience. Thank you again for your continued patience.” If you are in need of Cheap WOW Gold Classic, come to 5mmo.com, where you can enjoy the cheapest price online and 3% off with a coupon code “5MMO”.

    It later announced its intent to continue the attack, promising that there would be more outages for World of Warcraft Classic's servers. However, since then, the account has been pulled, likely for violating Twitter's ToS while initiating this attack on Blizzard. It's also worth adding that the WoW developer hasn't confirmed that this account is actually responsible for the attack, yet it's hard to imagine that it isn't involved with the current situation.

    While some gamers are indeed finding that everything is fine now, a number of players commenting on that latest Twitter post are reporting that they are still having issues logging in, or that they might be able to login, but still can’t get into the actual game. Other reports indicate issues still persisting in the US, the Oceanic region, and Malaysia, with some gamers also complaining that they can’t log in to Battle.net at all.
