Update: As of now, it seems that both AWS servers are back up and running. Websites like Twitch, Netflix and PlayStation Network are up on our end.
A major Amazon Web Services, or AWS, outage was affecting some of the largest websites and services on the internet, including Twitch, PlayStation Network, Doordash, League of Legends and more. The outage now seems to be over.
Per Amazon's AWS Service Health Dashboard (opens in new tab) website, internet connectivity is currently affecting the western United States, specifically its servers in Oregon and northern California.
At the moment, Amazon has acknowledged the issue and seems to have restored connectivity to both servers.
US-WEST-1, which encompasses northern California, is fully operational again. Amazon engineers are saying that connectivity within this region was not affected in the first place. So really, it seems that most issues stem from US-WEST-2, which is Oregon. Even then, it seems that US-WEST-2 is also back up and operational.
Below, we have pasted the current updates listed on the dashboard:
US-WEST-1: Northern California; US-WEST-2: Oregon

Given that this outage seems to not be as widespread as the one from Tuesday, Dec. 7 (opens in new tab), it may not affect as many sites and services. And this outage might be more regional, so it may affect users differently based on location. Either way, below is a list of the major websites and services affected as shown on Down Detector (opens in new tab):
- PlayStation Network
- Clash Royale
- Apex Legends
- League of Legends
- Call of Duty
