Another DDoS attack is affecting Blizzard servers today, the company confirmed on Twitter. This may result in disconnections and difficulty logging into various Blizzard services and games, including both versions of World of Warcraft.
[#Bnet] We are currently monitoring a DDOS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games.

This is the second attack this weekend, as yesterday’s attack was targeted at World of Warcraft Classic, but ended up affecting Battle For Azeroth and Overwatch as well.
The perpetrator is unknown at this time, but it may be a different person than yesterday’s attack. A Twitter user named UKDrillas (the account has since been suspended by Twitter) claimed responsibility for yesterday’s DDoS attack.
More information on this second attack will be given when it is available.
