Fan-orchestrated attacks have been hitting World Of Warcraft: Classic over the weekend, meaning people couldnt log in to any server.

U.S. World Of Warcraft servers were hit by several DDoS attacks on Saturday 7 September. Blizzards customer service was overwhelmed with players asking for support on why they could not log in to any of the servers.

A Twitter account named UkDrillas claimed credit for the attack and 30 minutes prior to each one would tweet out a warning that another was incoming. The Twitter account is suspended, and all tweets have been deleted. However, there is no confirmation that the account was responsible for the DDoS attacks.

During the attacks, Blizzard kept fans constantly updated and tweeted out that they were actively trying to find the source of the problem and stop the disruptions.

Some online services continue to be impacted by a series of DDoS attacks which are resulting in high latency and disconnections. These disruption effects have been felt by a portion of our players, impacting their gaming experience. Thank you again for your continued patience.

The issue was solved late Sunday evening; Blizzard informed fans that the services were back up and stable, though some players might still experience log-in issues.

All WoW Realms except Rattlegore are back online and stable. The investigation continues for that realm. Some players may experience persistent login issues until realm maintenance tomorrow morning, they said.

To add insult to injury Blizzard said they were still planning realm maintenance on the morning of Monday, 9 September, so the servers will be shut down until this has completed.
