(Update 4: 01-21-2022) Roblox published the root cause here.
(Update 3: 11-03-2021) I came across this website that shows nice stats for Roblox (I noticed downdetector only shows 24 hours history by default, not sure how to customize it). I vaguley recall I also see a github repo that can scan the roblox APIs, but I no longer see it when I tried to look through “roblox status” from twitter.
(Update 10-30-2021) Now I think that Roblox is likely hacked, unfortunately. The lack of transparency, as well as the length of outage are my main factors thinking they were hacked, btw. Now their official website says:
“We’re making things more awesome. Be back soon.”
Btw, I had a twitter thread going on this topic too.
(Original 10-29-2021) Roblox has a massive outage since yesterday, and it seems the impact is still going on as 11:35 pm US central 10-29-2021.
