Blizzard Servers under DDOS attack

So I attempted to log in-game and ran into a message from Blizzard that certain network providers are under DDOS attack.

The Poodle Corp has just hired Mr. Robot to DDOS Blizzard with the Dark Army.

A group calling themselves “The Poodle Corp.” claims responsibility to the DDOS attack of Blizzard’s network providers. Seems that only their servers are affected. Other games we play are currently working fine so it seems only they are affected at the moment.

 

They released a statement earlier on twitter;

 

Blizzard CS says “It wasn’t us! Its your network provider”.

 

“We continue to actively monitor an ongoing DDOS attack against network providers, affecting latency/connections to our games.”

I think its sad that they’re vulnerable to their service providers. Then again, when your electricity goes off, blame the electric company right? Probably not that bill you forgot to pay or are bullying your provider to drop their prices to spec so that you can make a wider margin Activision-Blizzard? Kiddin. Those are just possible plots you might see in this new series i’m watching on netflix called MR. Robot. Its good therapy. To see a mirror image of myself portrayed breaking the 4th wall.

In any case, Bliz, Puleaze, get them servers back online. I’m still trying to get “prepared” for Legion!
