LFD Tool Down?

There's a known issue causing the LFG servers to crash, which is kicking people out of queue. A hotfix is already in production and we expect will be implemented this evening.


I should have put you higher up on the CMsmas tree.

There's also an issue that's causing long queue times, and again a hotfix is in progress.


Thanks for the heads up. Was just in one of the 4.3 dungeons when someone had to go and the lfg tool keep removing are qroup from the queue to get a replacement. We could not down the boss with just 2 dps so after trying 2 times healer left so we split.

Do you guys not have one of the most well funded, populous design teams in the industry at your disposal?

Shouldn't a low graphics, well greased game be smooth to patch and change by now?

Please do respond to me, I'm actually curious about these things.

Don't take this as a blatant insult, I actually feel strongly about this issue and want to know more about it before I make judgements.
Yeah we were waiting for an hour and got booted.

Ha haaaa. Squeezin' my stress ball right now.


ow! ow! my head! stop it!

You're hotfixing away half the dps specs?

Potentially. I don't know much about other companies to be honest.

Well, as major patches go, 4.3 was one of the smoothest in the history of the game.

Game features and service issues have nothing to do with graphics, or even really the age of a game, though. World of Warcraft is, I would bet, one of the most complex games currently out there (the most?) in the types and scope of game systems we have. It's also no spring chicken, and so as we shove more robot-guts into the thing it just gets more complex and all these little cogs have to continue to work in-tandem.

If we weren't constantly improving and evolving the game, I might agree with you, but there's no formula for how you implement a region-wide 25 person raid queuing system under load of millions of people and test all possibilities of its use before release. Right?

Don't take this as a blatant insult, I actually feel strongly about this issue and want to know more about it before I make judgements.


Oh I don't! I take it as a deflected insult. :)
thumbs up bashiok.

The maintenance window ended exactly on time and there's only minor hiccups, I think they're doing alright.
I'm pleased so far. Haven't gotten to do the dungeons yet, but it's only the first day. Meanwhile I can prance around Orgrimmar in my newly mogged threads. Can we have a fashion show while we wait?

Unless, of course, you just pissed away an hour and a half waiting for LFG to admit you only to get booted. I guess I'll give it a week and then come back to try to log in to see if I can actually DO something in the game other than dance in SW.
One would hope over the course of 7 years that you would learn how to patch games more efficiently now.
LFD load-testing isn't something that's easily testable on PTR, particularly because of the low population. So, if this is one of the few issues that's popping up on patch day, that's pretty damned impressive.

An update would be sincerely appreciated, though, since this has been going on for quite some time now.
