CLOUDFLARE SERVER FAILURE LEAVES LEAGUE OF LEGENDS AND OTHERS WITH SERVER OUTAGE
Several services using CloudFlare internet services have suddenly crashed in a simultaneous manner; dozens went down without a warning. Among these services were League of Legends, VALORANT, and Discord, StreamLabs as gaming space, plus DoorDash, Postmates, Patreon and many others as well.
Players were booted from their games and chat services, and could not use some of the websites at all. Most of the people trying to use those websites have been signed out or get errors when loading a page. League of Legends, VALORANT, and FIFA players were not only kicked from online portions of the games, but also signed out of their accounts.
In a late afternoon July 17th update, Cloudflare said the failure was not due to it having experienced an attack, as many thought. The company attributed their services going down to “a router on [its] global backbone announced bad routes and caused some portions of the network to not be available.” Cloudflare also commented they have strived to address the issues and are “monitoring systems for stability now,” which, I’m guessing, remains to be seen. See it to believe it.
