League Of Legends Attacked By Small Group Of Jerk Players

League of Legends is one of the biggest games in the world. Which means it also attracts some of the biggest arseholes in the world as well, who despite being active players of the game, have banded together to try and bring it down.

Developers Riot Games have caught " a handful of players...attacking our live service to kill games that are in-progress". They were reportedly using Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which would result in games lagging horribly and, in many cases, simply disconnecting.

Riot is trying to identify and ban those responsible, and will also be "pursuing legal avenues and working with the proper authorities".

    "Because, you know, having fun is no longer fun any more.":/

    hahahaha ,yeah when they are about to lose they DDoS the game so it becomes a loss forgiven. Bloody idiots

    Good thing about Skyrim, impossible to DDos lol

    fucking WOW players i tells ya.

    Heard back when Guild Wars 1 was competitive, people from one competing guild would try to obtain the IP addresses of members of a rival guild (usually by trying to get them to IM or Skype or something) so they could DDOS them, leaving the team down X members on competition day.
