Chill guys...the relevant post on EU forums had plenty of blue responses.This is the US forum.
I can't explain what is going on but from what I have heard it is a problem with BT's infrastructure (as they provide the infrastructure to all the major ISPs), someone from a different post mentioned they'd rung BT to ask them what was going on and that BT said they were "aware of an issue and hoped to have it resolved in the next 4 hours", that was about 6 hours ago now.
The last time I could log into WoW or was able to get a ping back from eu.battle.net was about 4 hours ago and it worked for around 30 mins before dropping out again, when I was logged in at this time there was a message on the WoW log in screen that said something along the lines of "We are aware of an issue affect some UK users connecting to the EU battle net, we are unable to do anything but are working with the relevent people to try and resolve the issue"... I guess we just need to wait and hope BT fix this crap.
