If you use the Battle.net app for playing your favorite games like Warzone 2, Overwatch 2, and Diablo, something you’ll want to know how to do is check to see if the servers are down. Server status is an extremely important thing for all online games. Instead of wrongly accusing a problem on your end, here’s how to check the Battle.net server status.
How to check if Battle.net is down
The best way to check if Battle.net is down is to go to downdetector.com. Here, you can report a server problem and see a chart of other players experiencing server outages. This can help you identify a server outage. You can also scroll down to see if the reports are a server connection issue, a login issue, or a gameplay issue.
It’s not uncommon for Battle.net to get a DDoS attack. When this happens, their servers usually collapse and cause problems worldwide. You can see if something like that is happening on downdetector by scrolling down to the comments, looking at the newest, and seeing if people are reporting a DDoS attack.
Don’t worry about your data or personal information — DDoS attacks only hit the Battle.net servers. Your information will be protected, but you will need to wait until the DDoS attack is over, if that is what’s happening. If there isn’t a DDoS attack, you might need to read a guide on a specific game for a specific issue you are having.
To stay in the know about server statuses and DDoS attacks, follow Battle.net on Twitter. There are frequent updates here, so if there is a major server outage or problems, you’ll get the update from Blizzard themselves. Hopefully, any Battle.net issues don’t last long and you can get back to enjoying your favorite games.
