DDoS attacks have become more and more common in the past year. This week, DDoS attackers claimed a new target, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
The attacks have crippled many of the game’s services. During the attacks, login has become increasingly difficult and players might experience random disconnects.
Square Enix reported that although the log-in service may have been disturbed during the attacks, no data or personal information has been leaked nor is it at risk of being exposed.
Due to this attack, our game servers, network equipment and network connection are being hit with heavy load at an extensive level, which is causing a disconnection from the game and login difficulties.
Our technical staff is taking every possible measure to address this issue but the attack is still continuing to take place by changing their methods at every moment. We will continue to monitor and work on recovery from every possible angle.
