We appreciate the info. I was wondering what was happening.
Are you sure its just login issues and has nothing to do with this?

Blizz just admit its because of those hackers who were killing people in main cities.
Posting that you !@#$ed up 30 minutes after everything was supposed to be back up(which they should have been rolling, and up between 15 minutes ago and an hour and 15 minutes ago anyway), to tell us you know nothing, but might in an hour?

GJ as always Blizzard.

it was a security issue look around youll see the links but blizz deletes as fast as people post them
Oooh it is an authenticator issue~ Well thats good to know.

//waits more.
So, how about a month free for those of us stuck?
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.


Im assuming it has to do with this:

thanks for the update? they said nothing at all. no kidding its not working. couldnt figure that out by the 50 new threads and 100 posts to each.
Same crap, different rolling restart.

Some of us feel its important to learn from our mistakes ... Shouldn't be too difficult to investigate as this JUST happened about a week ago.

FFS guys... Step it up.


The problem is when they find a person that learns from their mistakes, they get promoted to a position that has no control over this kind of thing anymore.
Good thing the new Pokemon games came out today.

Are the people without authenticators enjoying the game right now? ... :-P


No im stuck and I do not use mine....
This crap every other restart is getting REAL old ... REAL fast
Gaaaah! I hate when I have to schedule a specific time to play and then it doesn't work. I'm very thankful someone left a message about it being broken, but football time is perfect "me" time. I hope it gets fixed soon so I don't lose too much of it. :-/
