The latest Blizzard BattleNet issues come after the @BlizzardCS account reported earlier that they were monitoring DDoS on their servers.

They tweeted: “We are currently monitoring a DDOS attack against network providers which is affecting latency/connections to our games.” 

Elsewhere the Blizzard CS account for The Americas this week explained the impact the ongoing coronavirus crisis will have on services.

The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked plenty of employees around the world to have to work from home to stave off infections spreading.

Speaking about the impact this would have, the @BlizzardCS Twitter posted: “As the global COVID-19 situation evolves, we’re taking cautionary steps to help protect our employees. As a result, you may experience increased waiting times or limited live chat and phone support availability when contacting us. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
