DDoS attack hits FF14’s North American servers

final fantasy 14 enjoyed a moment in the sun as players flock to the popular MMORPG and its critically acclaimed story content. But Square Enix hit a catch – the game was intermittent to Popular. A new DDOS attack is exacerbating this problem and some players are unable to play the game as a result.

A post on the official forums identifies the problem and says it started on Tuesday evening. As a result, North American players are experiencing the following issues:

Separate from Worlds North American data center

Difficult to log into the North American data center worlds

Difficulty accessing, sending, and receiving data from North American data centers

A DDoS is a distributed denial of service and malicious attack where someone attempts to disrupt a targeted server. DDoS attacks are relatively simple; They involve using brute force on the target by flooding them with internet traffic. Server for an MMORPG like final fantasy 14 tend to handle large player bases, but a DDoS attack clogs the server and it can be difficult to tell which connections are a legitimate user and which are part of the attack.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for this attack. In July, director Naoki Yoshida announced that a planned expansion of North American data centers would be delayed by several months due to a semiconductor shortage. The expansion is planned in two stages, the first starting in November and the second taking place in spring or summer 2023.
