Will this be everyones event logs? If so I look forward to seeing that so I can pass on the info to the people getting upset at me over something I have no control over. haha

Thanks! :)
Any of the affected locations already have detailed events log post which we continue to update with more information.

I figured much... but the guys are tired of seeing the DDoS attacks, on top of battlelog issues, on top of blaze dumps, on top of not being able to seed the servers.

BF4 has definitely been a nightmare for server owners.

Attacks are always-location specific. The one that Clumppy referred to was in Dallas only, and we handled it and posted an event to those customers. If you are seeing other problems, please contact us directly.

BF4 is particularly vulnerable to DDoS attacks because of the fragile connection to Blaze. Many of the most popular BF4 servers have been attacked recently, sometimes with traffic in excess of 60 Gbps. With the particularly large attacks, when one customer is hit, others are sometimes effected, and we make sure to post an event when that is the case.

Is there a way to tell if the DDOS was targeted at my server or if it's another server on the same network?

If you were the target we would post another event directly to you letting you know.

having our servers kick everyone out because someone in the same data center gets ddosed is getting lame. Today my NYC server dropped players twice and now CHI once.

Whoever has been launching these super-large attacks has been has been targeting one popular BF4 server after another.

Often customers see attacks because someone was abusive in-game and they issued a ban, but with the number of attacks tonight and the many different customers hit, that seems unlikely this time.

One customer told us that he thought someone was intentionally attacking our servers and then aggressively trying to sell to affected customers, suggesting to them that his network is better. That seems unlikely, but it's a possibility. More likely, to me, is that someone is hitting some of the more popular servers in Gametracker to try to push up their own ranking. Having a server down for 24 hours will hurt its ranking, certainly.
