There are some things we can do but you may misunderstand how a DDOS works. I'm going to borrow from a previous post that my colleague made.

For people asking, DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. As for what that actually means, think of the internet as a series of tubes (I know, old school memes, but hear me out).

If you think of the internet as a series of tubes connecting our computers together, a DDoS is like someone stuffing a bunch of rocks in one of those tubes which makes it hard (or impossible) for legitimate traffic to reach us. Our engineers have a way to clear these pipes by blocking the rocks, and then those perpetuating the DDoS might try to find another pipe to clog. It's a little bit of cat and mouse, but we're dedicated to keeping up the work!

(Also if you google this, apologies for basically copy/pasting a post I made during a similar event in April. Saves me time writing!)

Supplemental, because of how we structure our network we have many more utilities and tools at our disposal to address these types of issues. Our network engineers are currently analyzing where the bad traffic is coming from/where it's targetting, and we're working to address it. We'll continue to provide updates as they become available. Thanks for hanging in there!

I know right.
It`s not ddos, its Blizz new way to cope with overcrowded servers. Every now and then 50k+ random players get kicked to make room for the peeps in queue.
Much more cost effective than actually upgrading the servers ^^
How are you sure it's a DDOS?. Please tell

Ofcours US are getting blue post while ditchin EU.
