Ravensburger AG, the German game and toy company, announced on Monday that it is suspending website sales of 'Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn' following a significant DDoS attack that disrupted the game's launch.
In a statement released on its website, Ravensburger said, "Today we at Ravensburger experienced an extremely large DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack which severely disrupted the launch of Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn. Our team has worked extremely hard to solve this problem over the course of the day, but unfortunately that has not been possible. As of now we are officially ending our website sales of Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn. While we are not able to offer more specific details at this time, we want to apologize to consumers who had a negative experience during our launch today - we truly appreciate your support and are committed to improving your experience of future launches."
Following the announcement, disappointed users, who were eagerly awaiting the trading card game, took to social media to express their frustration.
"Sooo close to making the preorder only for Ravensburger to pull a TPCI. Guess this is just a sign that I don’t need to spend money on Lorcana," one user wrote.
"Woof DDoS attack. That’s horrible. I feel bad for the Ravensburger team now," another user commented.
Another person wrote, "Most painful Que system I’ve seen possibly ever honestly lol."
