Battlefield 4 Multiplayer on PC Suffering From DDoS Attacks
If you bought the PC version of Battlefield 4 then you’ll no doubt be aware of the recent DDoS attacks that the service has been going through over the weekend.
Well, DICE seems to be aware of the problem and is working to fix it.
We are currently experiencing attacks on our infrastructure that is impacting online gameplay on BF4 PC. We are working on mitigating actions
This appeared as a notice on Battlelog’s main page and has since been replaced by a PS4 server warning. A DICE staffer has also posted on the game’s forums:
We are being targeted by a DDOS, but working on fixing it asap. Im sorry somebody is ruining your and my day. Rest assured we are doing our best to mitigate the situation though.
In addition to having trouble getting into games, users also reported that if they could join, they were stuck with level 1 gear, having lost their progression bonuses. Lots of angry people there on the forums.
DDoS attacks are amongst the most annoying and difficult to deal with for a company. They require no specific skills, are easy to perform, and are hard to handle by the company in question.
