Final Fantasy 14 Under DDoS Attacks After Stormblood Launch

/ Jun 21st, 2017 No Comments

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

Final Fantasy 14 servers have been undergoing DDoS attacks since this weekend, Square Enix announced today.

These attacks have persisted since June 16, the first day that Stormblood, the MMO’s second expansion, went live for players who had early access. DDoS attacks are when attempts are made to increase server loads to a greatly increased number by flooding the targeted server network.

Players are running into severely packed servers which creates a number of problems. Players are met with lengthy queues containing over 6,000 players, longer than normal long times, and quests which cannot be completed.

Stormblood officially launched on June 20 and the problems were not solved, causing Square Enix to provide an official explanation. An anonymous third-party is specifically targeting the game’s North American servers.

While server disconnects and login difficulties are problematic, Square ensures that character data and personal information in players’ accounts are not in danger. Technical staff is focusing on countermeasures to fix the issue.
