Couldn’t play Battlefield 4 this weekend? Blame DDOS attacks

Battlefield DDOS

Nothing beats a rainy weekend when you want to sit back and play some games. As usual, the end of the year has plenty of games with which to unwind, with Battlefield 4 being one of the more decidedly popular titles available. Unless you tried to play it this weekend that is.

Any Battlefield 4 PC gamer looking to start a levelution this weekend most likely found themselves on the short end of a server, unable to gain access to their game. According to the Battlelog main page via Kotaku and DICE’s Ali Hassoon, that’s because the servers were being hit by a denial of service attack:

We are being targeted by a DDOS, but working on fixing it ASAP. I’m sorry somebody is ruining your and my day. Rest assured we are doing our best to mitigate the situation though.

If you could join a game though, chances were that you’d find all your hard-earned gear set back to level 1. The issues have most likely been sorted out by now though, which means that you can once again blow stuff up with gusto.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
