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."
