So... we got locked out of the Armory. We have all sorts of code that throttles our requests to the armory, but, apparently we still sent too many requests with the spike in traffic due to 4.0.6 and links from here :(We're going to update the code to throttle the requests even further. It might increase load times for Armory imports some, but not too bad. Unfortunately blizzard does not provide any numbers as to how many requests they allow in any time span, so it's a guess and test process.Last time this happened to us in WotLK we were locked out of the armory for 24 hours. I hope this is shorter or at least not longer. We will make a post when armory loading works again.For now the site still works and anyone who already loaded a character still can, you just can't load your character from the armory. You could select all your items manually from the item lists, but, that's sort of a pain :( Sorry about this problem - we really had no way to know for sure if it would happen or not.
