Battlefield 4 servers hit with DDOS attack


How was your weekend? Did you play loads of Battlefield 4 on your super-beefy PC? Perhaps you encountered some online difficulties considering the Battlefield 4 PC servers took a beating? That’s thanks to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that kicked off this last Saturday.

The reason why is officially unclear, but you can bet it’s because of some disgruntled and vocal minority in the Battlefield community; maybe a sniper rifle was nerfed or something? The DDoS attack meant that a lot of people couldn’t log in to play the game, and those who could only encountered issues like their progress being reset, which gave them all entry-level gear.

DICE is obviously aware of the situation, but there’s been no official word since their initial acknowledgement of the attack. We’ll update if we hear more, but as of this Monday morning, things seem to have quietened down. Did you have issues this weekend? Are you still experiencing issues? Let us know in the comments.
