If you are having trouble logging in Monitor 2 At launch, you are not alone. Blizzard President Mike Ybarra announced on Twitter that Monitor 2 Servers are currently subject to a “massive” distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, which typically occurs when something is maliciously flooded with traffic to prevent others from connecting. This is probably the main reason for the connection problems that anyone trying to log into the game has.
