Of the games that reported the most frequent problems, the Call of Duty franchise finishes significantly further ahead than the next closest, League of Legends.
Both franchises are well-known for their intense gameplay and rage-inducing moments with other players and so are very dependent on a reliable connection to the servers.

Perhaps surprising to some, the services suffering from the most outages are the ones gamers rely on the most commonly, including Steam, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, with the Xbox Live coming out as more likely to experience outages than its rival PlayStation.
