AWS Outage Wreaks Havoc

An ongoing outage at Amazon Web Services today demonstrates how much of the Internet lives in Jeff Bezos' cloud service. As noted on DCD, the outage began at around 10:45 am EST. PC Gamer notes this took down platforms like UPlay and the Epic Games Store, though both are both back up now. Using Downdetector PC Gamer compiled a partial list of affected games:

  • League of Legends
  • League of Legends Wild Rift
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • Valorant
  • Dead by Daylight
  • Clash of Clans
  • Destiny 2

Wow, what a nasty thing to say.

Come on, let's face it... this list reads like a who is who of what's wrong with modern gaming. Casual, dumbed down multiplayer games with monetization up the wazoo. Thank you, AWS. You did mankind a service. Maybe some basement dwellers even got a breather to take out the trash from the last three years. Or five. That can't be a bad thing.

I mean, you could've just said that and kept the poor attempt at gatekeeping to yourself.

Ring app was down. Cameras kept recording and uploading during the outage, but couldn't access them. The app that manages my pool also went down. That's the only effect it had for me.

My wife came home and asked why the exterior Christmas lights weren't on. I guess my smart light-switch depends on AWS services in some way.

Multi-region homing is a thing but you have to pay for it. These people, like many others, elected not to pay for it and got knocked offline. Too bad so sad.
