Jan 18, 2013 Wildhammer experiencing an issue For the third time today the realm crashed, I mean what the heck, why does it crash, and why does it take like 10 mins to log on again....Firathis8 Jan 18, 2013
Jan 18, 2013 Silly question about renewing my subscription My account was compromised last week and Blizzard cancelled any future recurring subscriptions. I'm now trying to login but I suppose today was the day that the payment was due, and it won't let me. So my question is: How do I renew my subscription with the credit card information that's already in my account?. I only see options to either "add a payment method" or to "add balance. The problem with adding balance might take up to 3 days since it's subject to review. Could anyone explain to me step-by-step? Thanks in advance. ps: i'd rather not have to add my credit card information again because i don't have it here.Kelynda3 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 RAF to myself I want to RAF myself to of course get the mount, and level some more toons. DO I need to make a new email to send the request to, and then merge it with Battle net. I sent myself an invite to the same email as my, but when I went to activate it, it asked if I already had a account, and I was afraid if I clicked yes, and put in the same email, that it wouldn't give me the mount. If it is ok to use the same email address, then when it askes if I have a account I just say yes and put in the same email/current I don't want to make a separate battle net, so I can use the heirlooms on the old and new account. Hope I explained my question.Puremagick8 Jan 18, 2013
Jan 18, 2013 Getting Booted From Instance I'm new to I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum area. I spent hours grinding, and leveling to get to Pandaria. I've enjoyed every moment except random Instance groups. I'm a Death Knight Tank..I'll admit I'm prolly not the best but from my experience the only way to learn is by doing it. I'm at a point in Pandaria that all I'm getting is valor and charms and can no longer get better armor so I started heroic dungeons. Well this is not the first time I have been booted from a instance for no apparent reason other than one person disapproves of my abilities..makes some rude comment then I'm booted. Honestly think that's a bit unfair. If your contributing to the group..trying to do your share of the work, and still get booted. Just seems to take any motivation away from doing randoms if at any moment a instance leader can boot you.Deathlistic9 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 Refund So I bought a new account after my old one got hacked. I didn't think I'd get it back but I eventually did so now I have no use for this one. I've tried calling billing and account services for a few days for a refund and it's ALWAYS full but the refund is only within 14 days so I don't have much time. Can a CM just refund it here? What else can I do?Vacuity5 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 Gamma Meter Not Working I logged out for about 2 hours, and did not change anything before i logged off. When I got back on later, the game was (and still is after several restarts) very bright. The gamma bar in advanced settings is not changing the brightness of the game, no matter where i slide the bar (and yes, i have pressed apply). Does anyone know how to solve this problem?Bullwinklé1 Jan 18, 2013
Jan 18, 2013 200 ms still in 2013 (qq thread) So yeah it's just another QQ thread about the ms issues for most people that play in US realms and aren't from US. I put this in the customer support because this is actually a problem that we, customers from LA, face since long time ago and nothing has ever been done to solve this. Blizzard gave the excuse in the past of "too expensive to put a server in LA" but i think you already get a lot of money just from LA players, i would even say spanish speaking realms give you that money already. And right now, in 2013, technology has advanced a lot, and the costs of making a server here can't be that much that you really "can't" do it. I bet you will even increase your income if we, LA's players could play with low ms just as people from USA do. There are many games that have a server in LA (hosted in Brazil most of the times) and it works perfect for anyone in whole South America. Why can't you do something like that?/Are you even planning on something like this?Dududrud6 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 it's ok now? I recently noticed that over on the EU forums, the blue's helped get a hotfixed pushed to the tournament realm so a guild could run a PvP tournament for real life money. Why is this being supported when account sharing is being openly advertised so american players can get in on this tournament? People have 'donated' their EU tournament flagged accounts to two different american teams for this tournament, yet it's getting official blizzard support? Guess its ok for everyone, if its ok for high profile players.Greenhouse6 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 No Pandaria Portal... Weird bug/problem I've encountered. Yesterday xfered my 90 druid and 90 hunter (this guy) to Alliance. Upon entering stormwind both got a pop-up quest to go see the Pandaria intro-cutscene in the Keep. Both then got a follow "The Mission" to talk to a skyship captain on the edges of Stormwind to fly to Pandaria. Did this on both, and in both cases upon zoning into Pandaria the skyship vanished and characters fell to their death on the shores of Garro'shar Point. Head to Paw'don Village, NPC yells "What are you doing down here, we need you on the ship!" Click the portal, fall again to the beach. Long story long, I figure no prob, abandon quest, continue on my way. The weird part is, however, that while my druid can see the Pandaria portal in SW, for some reason my hunter does not. ?? Anyone encounter this problem with a faction xfer? I don't know if it's a bug I need help to fix or if I can pick up the chain, run some quests in Paw'don and get the portal to open for this guy.Ranoch2 Jan 18, 2013
Jan 18, 2013 Trying to recover an account I am trying to recover my kids account. Everywhere on the web I go, I am stuck in a never-ending circle of an email has been sent or please log in. I do not get an option to web chat, can't get a number, and the number I do have won't accept calls... A few months ago, my son who lives out of state tried to log into the kids account, which tripped the system, and at that time, school was starting, it was forgotten about. Now we have a new ISP and I no longer have access to the email that is attached to that account. I opened a ticket, and the gm, who was very polite and willing to help, gave me a link to show me how to change the email, but you have to be logged in to do it, which I cant do... Please, I need to get this resolved, and it's so frustrating!Stormryze2 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 My recent Experience with CSRs and GMs So, for the past 4 days I have been bouncing tickets back and forth with CSRs and GMs. It all started when I got back home from and extended stay overseas on work. (I work as a mechanic with a natural gas drilling company.) I went to check my email, and I couldn't. So after getting my email back in my control, I noticed some emails from Blizzard. You know, password changes, email change, etc. The ones you never want to see if you didn't ask for them. So, after 4 days, about 5 tickets, 2 Account recovery forms, ID scans, 2 different email changes, etc. I finally have full access and control of my account again. I would like to take this time to personally thank all the GMs and CSRs that worked with me and helped me get my account back. Seriously, Thank you. I'm glad to know that, even though you guys might not have the quickest CS, you do care enough to help. So, take it from me. Put a little trust in Blizzards CS if anything happens to your account. They might take awhile, but they will straighten everything out.Vixz5 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 Verification email never arrives? I removed my old authenticator this morning by calling Blizz because I sold my phone and forgot to remove it off my account before I did like an idiot, but I have a new phone now and I wanted to put a new authenticator back on but I'm still waiting on my verification email before I can proceed with the next step. I asked for it to be sent via the page before I went to work this morning and now I'm home but it's still not there. It's definitely going to the right address, but doesn't seem to be getting here at all. :( Has anyone else ever had this problem? Any way to fix it so I can attach the authenticator or will I need to call Blizz again to have it set up?Snax10 Jan 18, 2013

Jan 22, 2013 Unexplained Macro Modifier Problem If I am moving forward (holding down W) I cannot use a shift modifier with the key X. Shift X is not bound to another key. This only happens when I use the combination: W, Shift, and X. Thus: 1) holding W, Shift, and Any other key other than X works fine. 2) holding Shift, X, and any key other than W (for example A and D, my strafing keys) also works fine 3) shift-X is not bound to anything in WoW (shift is a modifier for a macro attached to the key X). Neither is shift-W. Yes I am sure. 4) It does not matter what macro is placed on X, if I am holding W, Shift, and X no part of any macro will function. Yea this is a weird problem... If it makes a difference I am running Windows and using an Apple Keyboard. Would really appreciate it if somebody could find out whats wrong.Zerazsa3 Jan 22, 2013

Jan 18, 2013 Authenticator problems I wanted to put some cash on my Battle.Net wallet, the only problem is I need an authenticator to get it to work, so I grab an authenticator and I think all is fine and dandy except the authenticator doesn't work when I try logging into World of Warcraft or Diablo 3.
