After talking to a few different GMs it has become apparent that they are unaware of crashes that happen almost every day on Wildhammer. According to one GM I've talked to Wildhammer in the past week has only crashed twice. The issue might not be that the whole server is crashing. It might be that due to some error large numbers of people are booted from the server and for some reason are unable to reconnect for awhile. So I figured that I would set up a tread to log these "outages" so that blizzard might be able to get a better grasp of the situation hopefully making it easier for them to diagnose the problem.
Please follow the format below when posting in this forum.
Time: Time you were disconnected from the server.
Zone: What zone you were in.
Errors: Errors you encountered when trying to reconnect.
Duration of outage: How long you had to wait before you could log back in to the character you got disconnected on.
Hey everyone on Wildhammer suffering with the continued server crashing and "error retrieving character list"...
I spoke with phone tech support tonight. I had about 6 documented support tickets including people jerking me around with "reset your modem", "delete your cache and wtf", "update your video driver", "forward your ports".... ETC. I provided dates, times, and continued issues for the last 6 months. The tech on the phone told me not to post to server forums as no support personnel will read this thread. I repeat. "blues will not read this."
Instead, post bug reports in game, post to the support forums, call 1-800-592-5499 (closes at 6 pacific).
Please do this in force. Tell your friends. If we report it correctly they might actually address the issue.
