League of Legends Under Attack

Riot Games announces League of Legends is facing DDoS attacks, as GamesIndustry International has word from the MOBA's forums. "As some of you have recently experienced, a handful of players have been attacking our live service to kill games that are in-progress. They're doing this through a form of Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS) and not a hack," a producer named Bellissimoh explains. "We have taken steps to identify these attackers and remove them from our service permanently. Additionally we are pursuing legal avenues and working with the proper authorities." In other LoL news, this post offers late-September patch notes.

Proving once more that some MOBA players take their games way too seriously.
