Whenever I press play on my launcher it closes like its about to pull up the title screen but then it just pops up again. Anyone else having a issue like this?

Yes, no idea how to fix it though and the Gms I talked to seemed to not know either.

Try disabling your anti-virus temporarily. I had to turn mine off to fix the problem, and I saw a post with some other people that had done the same thing.

Well...it WAS working for me, then the updater got stuck...
And now, with my antivirus still off, it's not working again.

I've got it to come up after I reinstalled the game, but as soon as I downloaded all my addons and went to login to configure them it messed up again. Oh well it'll get fixed eventually.

Ok When cataclysm originally came out i had this very same problem and I'm not sure if this can still work. But does anyone remember how to open wow directly bypassing the launcher altogether. Or if this fix even still works for launcher errors

You gotta open the file location, right click of wow, not wow launcher, and run it as administrator, and it should open up the login menu. But you may get the red realm error and not be able to login

I am glad I'm not the only one having this issue. I was thinking about uninstalling WoW and then reinstalling it all together.
