    DDoSing is illegal, thus it's so bizarre to me that Twitter lets tweets like this stay up. Imagine someone saying "In roughly 20-30 mins. Will rob local convenience store. Just putting on mask =)"...

    Imagine someone saying "In roughly 20-30 mins. Will rob local convenience store. Just putting on mask =)" and Twitter just shrugging about it.

      Ya but on the other hand, better the enemy you know than the enemy you don't. Honestly, if it weren't for the warnings, it'd be tougher to deal with this. Still assholes though and hope they get...

    I'll never understand the appeal of a DDOS attack. Like hacking and defacing a site I can get, it's like breaking in and tagging the place. Maybe it's because it takes skills to deface a site...

    edit: Well that was shortlived. By the time I posted this the server was back up with normal pings.

    edit: Spoke too soon. 2000ms game latency and people being kicked off again.

    I feel like I'm missing some context here. Why just classic? Why now? Who is this ukdrillas?

        I'm really understand the intention here - is this group trying to show off their ability to take down large/well known things to then sell their services? Or do groups just DDOS things for kicks?

          They're marketing themselves. The guy seems to have the intention of selling his services.

    Last week I had way too much going on, so I was looking forward to resuming my escapades in Herod on Saturday (and continuing to put off all my responsibilities since Classic was released). Unfortunately I only played about an hour before I observed symptoms of a DDoS attack. I made a leap and assumed it was the same individual or group who attacked Wikipedia, since it seemed about as senseless and destructive. It appears my assumption has been validated, based on the content of the linked (and now deleted) Twitter account.

    It looks like Blizzard just completed realm maintenance, so I'll play awhile and see how things go. Latency seems fine right now. My work and schoolwork can wait until the servers go down again....

    Edit: Ran into DDoS troubles again.
