Lol, Dos attacks are done by hackers. Their purpose is to make a server unreachable. What they do is sending a lot of requests to the server from multiple (thousands) computers. They overload the server. So we players who just enjoy a game can't reach that server, or we can but it works very slow because the server has also to deal whit the requests coming from the hackers.

Its an ego thing  or someone that is disgruntle.  Its goal is to cause downtime and cause financial harm.  If a player cant log on, they cannot purchase services.  Its a network engineers worst nightmare.
