Overwatch Servers Back Up After DDoS Attack

It looks as though the kiddies were at it again. For the second time this month, a DDoS attack was launched against Battle.net's servers making it impossible to play Overwatch this morning. Blizzard responded swiftly and, as of 11am, all was right in the world again.

The DDoS attack was reported earlier this morning as the attackers have targeted Blizzard’s network providers, which as a result is affecting latency and connections to all of its games. That means if you’re looking to play any of its games, like Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, World of Warcraft, or anything else that runs on Blizzard’s servers, you could be in for a bad time today.
