Blizzard Under DDoS Attack, Service Disrupted
Blizzard has confirmed that it is suffering a series of DDoS attacks, with its European online services suffering as a result.

In a support notice, the company said:

"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. 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."

Blizzard will post updates through its support account on Twitter.
