Good thing all the expert are out to tell Blizz how to fix this... Things happen folks, complaining about it won't change things though. Go outside for an hour or something.

The Rolling restart was maybe for the hacker that killed everybody in some server ..... and some other issues...

So, thanks Blue for the update. I dig that things go wrong.

That said, I'm a network admin (IKR, a network admin who plays WoW... shocking. Line forms to the left for this magic, ladies) for a 24/7 shop... No where NEAR what you folks face, I'll grant you that, however I also face the daunting task of having to maintain hardware when you've essentially always got people needing / wanting to use it. I wouldn't do any updates or restarts, if at all avoidable, on say a Monday while payroll is being processed.

A weekend, in particular a long weekend for many, does not strike me as the most logical time to perform restarts on servers. Even 5am would have been a better choice. I can't imagine that trying to sort this out while you've got X million users all blasting away with their login credentials makes things much easier.


You said pretty much everything I wanted to say. I'm a network admin as well, though for places that are only open during business hours. I'm rather annoyed that they keep deciding to do restarts on Sunday afternoons and such instead of a usual extremely early Tuesday morning. Unless there is a massive exploit or game bug that absolutely must be fixed RIGHT NOW, then I see no point.

All of the hamsters for the authentication server died, so they need to replace them all, which sucks because all of the pet stores don't open until noon.

We are currently investigating this issue and will provide further updates within an hour.


ANOTHER HOUR?? It's already been over an hour since the "max 15 minute downtime restart"!

Seriously? Another hour?? This was the only day I could do some serious leveling up! Dammit.

Being a former GM for that "other WoW-like MMORPG" I understand how these things can go.

Patience is a virtue and going outside to look at that orange orb in the sky beats sitting inside and griping about something your griping won't change.

Relax, have a Kit-Kat and wait like everyone else.

Peace out.

P.S. Thanks for the update Nethaera.
