Suffering From Your Own Success
Call of Duty: Warzone has exploded since it was released nearly two weeks ago. It has amassed over 15 million players and it the talk of the gaming world at the moment. Activision’s take on the battle royale genre has paid off big time so far as many critics and doubters have been won over due to the slick and addicting gameplay. However, not everything has gone perfectly. Last night Activision-Blizzard was the victim of a DDoS attack that crashed the servers of some of their games or caused massive technical issues for the ones that did not go totally offline. One of these games was Call of Duty: Warzone.
Many players flooded social media to report that they were experiencing crippling lag or other connectivity issues. For most players, games would start without a hitch, then quickly descend into chaos. Players clipping through walls and teleporting around the map was very common. Once these problems started happening, the player has no choice but to disconnect. This would obviously be frustrating to anyone who was having a great game only for server issues to force them to quit.
Activision-Blizzard is currently working on resolving the damage caused by this attack. There is no total guarantee, but all of the problems should be resolved sometime today. Seeing as how Warzone is now the golden child of Activision-Blizzard, it would only make sense for them to designate it has a number one priority.
It might not have sounded like a good idea on paper, but Call of Duty: Warzone has managed to blend the classic COD gameplay along with some new battle royale elements seamlessly. Judging from what we can see now, it looks like Warzone is going to stick around for a while.
It is free to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox.
