Yesterday the WOW Power Leveling 90-100 expansion launched, bringing with it a number of new features that make the lapsed subscribers think “maybe I’ll go play for a month” and end up staying several.
But the launch has been overshadowed in the US by a massive DDoS attack. WOW Power Leveling 90-100 has been dealing with unexpected stability issues overnight related to just how many players are trying to login and their concentration within zones. That has led to queues for players trying to gain access and understandably a lot of frustration.
But the biggest cause of latency on North American servers has been a confirmed Distributed Denial of Service attack. This week WOD Power Leveling was meant to be an exciting one for both Blizzard and World of Warcraft players.
