Blizzard customer support announced Monday that the DDOS attacks beginning late the previous night and preventing players from logging onto Blizzard games have ended.
The company first announced just before midnight on Sunday via Twitter it was investigating issues preventing players from logging onto Blizzard games including Overwatch and Hearthstone. Two hours later, Blizzard tweeted the issues were caused by DDOS attacks against network providers.
The DDOS attacks against network providers that we were monitoring have ended. If you are still unable to log in try https://t.co/0WeaNolu3V— BlizzardCS (@BlizzardCS) July 9, 2018
The attacks persisted for the next six hours, causing frustration for players attempting to play Blizzard games. Finally, Blizzard announced the attacks had ended, allowing players to access their games.
Some fans on Reddit and Twitter, however, still claim to have issues logging in. In the tweet announcing the end of the attacks, Blizzard included a link for players who couldn't log in even after the attacks, but for Reddit users such as u/snowfallwolf that link still isn't allowing access. It instead leads to a missing page error.
Blizzard has yet to respond to this latest round of player complaints.
