Throughout the day on Thursday, the League of Legends servers have been experiencing an immense amount of lag and downtime. It appears as though a reason for the problems has been discovered, and it’s an all-to-familiar pest causing the problems.
The same group that was responsible for causing mass chaos at the end of 2013 seems to be back in business as the group has taken responsibility for the constant server downtime over the last 12-24 hours. As proof of their claims to be responsible, the group has been restoring and re-attacking the servers at will.
As of this posting, the North American and European servers continue to drop at random times. Developer Riot Games has stated that they are working on getting the issues solved while the group continues to taunt the team and its fans.
We will keep you updated should other games be targeted by the group, or if the League of Legends servers get restored to full function.
