A member of Lizard Squad has claimed responsibility for Blizzard’s Battle.net issues.
Looking for info on the June 2016 outage? Overwatch is down due to another DDoS attack.
As well as difficulties with logging in, Overwatch players are being disconnected from matches, leading to a general concern on Twitter that they’ll be penalised in line with Blizzard’s crackdown on rage quitters.
While there’s been no mention of a DDOS attack, it appears that Lizard Squad may be responsible, going by this tweet from a member of the group.
Hai there @BlizzardCS
Don't mind me, just doing some preparations.
Take care of my packets, Thanks😘

In response to the annoyed feedback, AppleJ4ck responded, “The fact that you let a couple of pixels affect your entire day is just sad, in a way, I’m doing y’all a favor.”
No word from Blizzard on this, so I guess we’ll just have to sit tight and wait for further updates.
We're currently investigating an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts. #BlizzCS
