Where to go to check the Battle.net server status

As of February 15, Battle.net is experiencing issues where logging in to the Battle.net launcher is either slow or completely fails you. This is shortly after the launch of Season 2 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0, so the problems are likely linked. For updates, you can follow the Blizzard Customer Service tweet thread below.

As of April 19, 2023, the Blizzards servers are dealing with a DDoS attack, and so the Battle.net servers and any games that use them will likely suffer until these are resolved.

If you have problems connecting to the Battle.net servers, check the Blizzard Customer Service Twitter page first. The social team here is really good at keeping people updated when the service goes down, or other issues are found. They are also pretty good at directly replying to you in their reply section if you have a problem and need a quick comment.

Additionally, Downdetector has a page displaying people’s reports of Battle.net, giving them issues. You can see the timeline of when these issues started being reported. You can also add to the conversation here.

If you see no reports of the Battle.net server status being down, we recommend completely exiting out of the game or launcher. Then, reset and check your internet router and consider restarting your system. If none of that has seemed to work, consider contacting Blizzard Support directly to find out what could be keeping you from your games.
