DICE, the developer of Battlefield 4 game, is blaming DDoS attack for their servers being unresponsive and players having their unlock progression reset.
Battlefield 4 players have started complaining yesterday about being unable to connect to game’s multiplayer servers. According to them the list of playable servers is visible, but all servers are showing zero players online. Those who have managed to connect reported crashes shortly after the connection was established.
Worse thing is that player’s unlock progression had been reset. Once players’ have been able to connect to Battlefield 4 multiplayer server, they had only level one gear in their inventory. On the other hand, when logged into Battlelog, users can see their unlock progression unchanged. This probably means that players' items will be there once the server attacks are resolved.
DICE announced they’re working on fixing this issue as soon as possible. I can understand the frustration of being unable to play your game, but in this case we should not blame the developers. Hackers are targeting more and more websites and servers. We had those attacks on our sites and servers many times, with the latest one ending in a complete server rebuilt.
I’m sure the servers will be back online in no time.
