Blizzard president Mike Ybarra says the external attack on Overwatch 2 servers is continuing on day 2

Overwatch 2is barely more than an update for a perfectly serviceable competitive game, so the free-to-play shift felt like one of the bigger changes was a huge bummer to many fans.G/O Media may get a commissionHorror Video Games to Play Leading Up to Halloween

Spooky and scarySomething video games have over their film counterparts when it comes to horror is the player’s agency. Sure, watching the slasher claim their next victim can get a jumpscare out of you, but you know what’s scarier? Knowing you had the power to stop it. Watching someone slowly open a door and enter a dark room is unnerving, but having to do it yourself will send shivers down your spine and paralyze you with fear.

Bruhhh No shit, so that is why you ask phone number? 'games as a service' DDoS 2, same as the first one not sure why but ok, havent played ow in years and seen that ow 2 is a thing and i have no idea why people are mad or upset about a slightly better game with crossplay and transfered account item. seems about silly really.

oh no! anyway... People aren't happy about the greedy monetization it seems😂 Wtf still trying to Ddos mf’s? Seeing as youre the source you are, this is likely old news. BUT i can still laugh and hope the game dies fast Solo ult'ed I'll just play OW1 in the meantime...oh wait..

You Can't Play Overwatch 2 Right Now Because It's Under AttackBlizzard president Mike Ybarra tweeted that there's been an external attack on the Overwatch 2 servers Real 'dog ate my homework' energy here. Maybe they can use their diversity program to solve the problem That's ok. I didn't want to play a 6 year old game with a slap of new paint anyways.

Has any group claimed these attacks? If only they bring back Papa Jef back Sure it is. A second ddos has crashed into the overwatch headquarters Womp womp DrGorso Get rid of the SMS verification

Anybody who was trashing on overwatch 1 needs to hop off and let us real fans play It's gamers... They wanna play Literally no one believes this shit, they need to stop lying lmao It's not so hard to admit the servers are too bad to handle the influx of players If you believe this is a DDoS I have a bridge in New York to sell you. Blizzard_Ent wasn’t prepared for this launch. They’re waiting for casuals to lose interest. There’s nothing to fix. They don’t have the servers to facilitate the traffic. Period.

Do avoid this disruption just uninstall the game. Junker queen hates Pokémon How about they fix the piss poor monetization system. Extremely greedy. Bullshit lmao But wait theres more! its called people trying to log in

I'll wait for Overwatch 3 It’ll get fixed so everyone should stop complaining about it right now I mean.. Blizzard as a company DOES suck. So I guess this is karma for the company’s actions? ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯ Damn haven’t had this much fun since the first season of overwatch 1. Hope the servers come back soon Ha now I know it’s bull shit they just didn’t prepare and blamed it on a ddos attack like every bad launch they have

Since when did joining a queue to play a game become a thing ..... ? It's probably cause they encrypted the character models so people couldn't make porn of them. Someone probably got mad and chose this as a protest. So what about the missing skins and characters for the ow1 owners? jinxiiex SomeArachnid well I guess I know what I’m not downloading just yet lol

Guess theres gunna be more until the sms BS is gone

Overwatch 2 Goes Live; Immediately Faces DDoS AttackThe free-to-play sequel to Blizzard's hero shooter, Overwatch 2 has launched today, on most major platforms. This means on PC 2 actually PS5 🤯

Didn’t even know it was coming out 🤷‍♂️ Perfect. This is well deserved. Punks should have kept ow1 as it is and then should have released this trash Probably security mechanism that acts because it thinks all these users trying to log in is a DDos attack Keep it coming Bruh there’s a queue to get in another queue lmaoo. Had 50 players ahead, then it sent me into a queue of 30k folks ahead. This ain’t no damn DDOS attack. This is just Blizzard being unprepared for server overload. Same happened with Lost Ark’s release and it wasn’t a DDOS.

And the game kicks me offline as soon as I get an Xbox achievement. I can't imagine why anyone would attack such a good game..... Streamers seem fine eh

No shit About 10 hours late on this post They got what Blizzard deserves Ha that's BS, they went F2P they knew more people was going to play it. Their servers capacity is not enough nor ready for the F2P model. Meanwhile their battle pass premium pay system is more than ready. just a matter of priority that Blizzard made

Phoenix90523807 Amatterus They were just unprepared Haters. this so sad LMAO

'Sir.... a second DDoS attack has hit the OW2 servers...' i guess raid: shadow legends it is

People were already convinced that Overwatch 2 is barely more than an update for a perfectly serviceable competitive game, so the free-to-play shift felt like one of the bigger changes was a huge bummer to many fans. G/O Media may get a commission Horror Video Games to Play Leading Up to Halloween Spooky and scary Something video games have over their film counterparts when it comes to horror is the player’s agency. But someone trying to inflict a cyberattack on Overwatch 2 is not quite so common. Sure, watching the slasher claim their next victim can get a jumpscare out of you, but you know what’s scarier?

Shop at Amazon Advertisement Anyway, I hope you can at least get your place in line back once Blizzard gets the servers back under control. We just don’t have an exact ETA on that.

Update 10/5/22 at 10:00 A. Kotaku reached out to Blizzard about when the servers will be back to full capacity but did not receive a response by the time of publication.

There is still no word on when the servers will be back to normal functionality. Advertisement .
