Discord, the go-to messaging app for many many gamers appears to have experienced a relatively long outage today due to network problems at Cloudflare.
The chat app was inaccessible for millions of users, with Discord’s website also feeling the brunt of it. Those affected were quick to voice their anguish on Twitter, after DownDetector, a website which tracks outages also stopped working.
While the exact reason for the outage is unknown so far, a similar outage just over a week ago was traced back to problems at Cloudflare, a content delivery network that services like Discord relies on.
The rumours appeared to be true this time around as well. In fact, the company’s System Status page, which collects an account of global incidents currently lists every major city across the globe.
Cloudflare’s CEO Matthew Prince tweeted stating that he was aware of major issues impacting Cloudflare’s network-wide and that his team is working on getting to the bottom of what’s going on.
