Overwatch 2 Suffers Second Ddos Attack On Launch Day!

What the heck just occurred? As expected, the launch of a highly anticipated multiplayer game like Overwatch 2 was met with connection issues due to server congestion.

However, Blizzard claims that distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks were partially to blame for the launch issues that plagued the new game.

When Overwatch 2 was released, so many people had trouble logging in that it became an internet joke. According to Blizzard employees.

It was the first attack on Tuesday, according to Blizzard president Mike Ybarra, who blamed dropped connections.

Some users have reported seeing tens of thousands of players ahead of them in server queues, on top of the more common reports of long wait times or server timeouts.

Ex-Gears of War and Lawbreakers creator Cliff Bleszinski joked that the error message had become the subtitle for Overwatch 2.

Attacks typically involve many more devices making many fewer requests. A record-breaking attack of 704.8 Mpps was fought by Akami just last month.

On October 4, Overwatch 2 was released to the public, taking the place of the discontinued original.

The game’s PvP component is free, but Blizzard is teasing the release of a premium PvE component for the game sometime in 2019.
