Trouble logging in? It may be due to hackers
Final Fantasy 14’s servers have been under intense strain this past weekend. It now seems that these issues are the direct result of distributed denial-of-service attacks, Square Enix stated today.
Stormblood was officially released yesterday and as of today, massive amounts of access requests due to the alleged hack are continuing to occur.
Square Enix has stated that its technicians are doing all they can to defend against the attacks, but they are “continuing to take place by changing their methods at every moment.” The company also assured players that character data and private information associated with accounts have not been affected.
