Diablo III and other Blizzard games disrupted by DDoS attack

Online miscreants have chosen to disrupt Battle.net services a week after the launch of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls.

The actions have left players facing problems attempting to log in to Blizzard’s biggest titles.

“Diablo, World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Hearthstone players may be impacted by high latency and disconnections during their gaming experience that are the result of a series of DDoS attacks on certain European online services,” a battle.net statement warned.

“Although Blizzard’s infrastructure isn’t targeted, the disruption effects rippled and have been felt by a portion of our players’ population. While we are closely monitoring the situation we wanted to thank you for your patience and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls was released last Tuesday (March 25th).
