Just three days ago, we reported on Blizzard Entertainment's apparent DDoS/Lag issues happening within their game servers globally - seeing some players being unable to log in for up to 30 minutes, reports of friend lists not functioning and customers experiencing up to 5,000ms of in-game latency.
This issue was fixed just mere hours after the story was reported, however in today's news, Blizzard have issued multiple statements across their Customer Service Twitter account alongside their Battle.Net client claiming of Authentication and log in issues - mainly based around their North American server cluster.
Their Twitter reports issues ranging from in-game latency problems to authentications and log in services failing.
Usually we don't see too many issues with Blizzard's offerings - however since the release of their latest expansion, Warlords of Draenor, there have seemingly been more and more problems popping up. Let's hope this doesn't become a staple for Blizzard as we'd hate to see them tarnish their good reputation.
We will continue to report as the story may develop.
