If you’re having trouble logging into a Blizzard game right now, you’re not alone. The Battle.net service is down following a DDOS attack, the company confirmed on Twitter.
We are currently monitoring a DDOS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games.

“We are currently monitoring a DDOS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games,” the statement reads. It appears that this attack is currently affecting World of Warcraft and Diablo III servers at the moment.
Blizzard has been hit with a number of DDOS attacks recently, causing connection issues throughout their lineup of games. Three weeks ago, Overwatch was rendered unplayable due to a similar attack.
Blizzard hasn’t announced any timetable for the issue to be fixed.
