Stormblood Launch Issues Blamed on Ongoing DDoS Attack

Stormblood Launch Issues Blamed on Ongoing DDoS Attack - MMORPG.com

According to a new post on the Final Fantasy XIV site, it appears that the rocky launch of Stormblood came as a result of a third party DDoS attacks that are still underway. The team has been trying to get on top of the attack, but the methods have been changing at nearly every moment. 

Due to this attack, our game servers, network equipment and network connection are being hit with heavy load at an extensive level, which is causing a disconnection from the game and login difficulties.

Our technical staff is continuing to work on countermeasures for this issue.

However, with the attack we are currently experiencing, only a massive number of access attempts are being made, so character data and personal information registered to our customers’ accounts are not in danger of being exposed.

Read the full letter on the Final Fantasy XIV site.

Thanks, Dragnelus!
