Four of NCSoft's top MMORPGs were hit with DDoS attacks yesterday, rendering it nigh impossible to log into Aion, Blade & Soul, Lineage 2, and WildStar. As Massively Overpowered reports, the attacks were quickly identified on the various affected games' forums and social media accounts; Guild Wars 2 was not affected.

Yesterday was a "bad internet day" in general, with Comcast customers reporting outages across much of the United States. While those issues and NCSoft's might have had the same source, we prefer the theory that some former City of Heroes players were really, really upset about yesterday's infamous anniversary.
