Blizzard Servers Attacked Following Shutdown Of WoW’s Nostalrius Servers

This story reminds me of those days back in grade school when some kid would get mad and decide that, if he can't play a game, no one else can play either. The difference here is that people are upset over Blizzard forcing an unauthorized private server to shut down. So, if those people couldn't play, they made sure legitimate Wow players couldn't either. frown

Not everyone has taken a diplomatic approach to the servers being shut down. Legendary troll group, Lizard Squad, has been paid to attack Blizzard’s game servers. However, they don’t explicit say if it’s in response to the shut down of Nostalrius. Blizzard noted that there are no attacks on user account data, and this is all an attempt to prevent people from logging in and playing StarCraft, Diablo and World of Warcraft.
