Both Blizzard games, Overwatch and World of Warcraft servers are under a DDOS attack.

Popular game Overwatch is having connection issues with their servers, as a result players are getting randomly kicked out of the game unable to rejoin back, they are left waiting in queue behind thousands of other players, some players stated that they didn’t drop any ranking after their games ended.
Players reported the issue on Reddit and the official Overwatch forums, which Blizzard responded to their player base stating that they’re currently investigating the issue and would advise players to avoid competitive play.

World of Warcraft Classic players also reported that they’re getting kicked out of the game, seemingly a similar issue with Overwatch.

Blizzard’s European Customer Support Twitter account has confirmed that they are in fact under a DDOS attack.

Speculations that Blizzard’s servers are getting DDOS attacked by the same people that were responsible for the DDOS attack on Twitch and the Overwatch League yesterday.
