Battlefield 1 Servers Down

Just pondering here, but it looks like Poodlecorp may have come through with their threat to take down the Battlefield servers on launch day.

EA support has acknowledged that there is an issue, however nothing specific yet.

Looks like the PSN outage has been restored.


Wonder if this has something to do with the outages we are seeing. For once it might now be DDOS.

Twitter, Spotify and Reddit, and a huge swath of other websites were down or screwed up this morning. This was happening as hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It’s probably safe to assume that the two situations are related.

Update 12:28 PM EST: Dyn says it is investigating yet another attack, causing the same massive outages experienced this morning. Based on emails from Gizmodo readers, this new wave of attacks seems to be affecting the West Coast of the United States and Europe. It’s so far unclear how the two attacks are related, but the outages are very similar.

In order to understand how one DDoS attack could take out so many websites, you have to understand how Domain Name Servers (DNS) work. Basically, they act as the Internet’s phone book and facilitate your request to go to a certain webpage and make sure you are taken to the right place. If the DNS provider that handles requests for Twitter is down, well, good luck getting to Twitter. Some websites are coming back for some users, but it doesn’t look like the problem is fully resolved.


One of the guys from poodlecorp and lizard squad was arrested not too long ago, doubt that it’s poodlecorp or lizard squad, apparently the dude from poodlecorp was arrested by the FBI and is to believe to face some jail time, I hope he remembers to lube up…

EA servers are back up for BF1 tho, was about 30 minutes down time

yeah - all signs point to the DNS issue that affecting the global internet.

Oh My god is passed in the beta and the serves of the PlayStation network is down, it is a deja vu

The PSN network is slowly recovering.

Are BF1 servers up again? I still can’t join multiplayer

They should be back up within 60 minutes I would guess.

Up and running again!

Yup! Playing right now!
