[5:00PM PDT, April 14, 2009]
Thank you for your patience. We ran into some issues in the testing process which have resulted in delays. We currently do not have a definite estimate on when they will be playable, but we will provide another update at approximately 6:00PM PDT. We are doing the best we can to have the realms available in the next two to three hours.
Not holding my breath ;-)
Apr 14th 2009 7:55PM Oh I hope they stagger the online servers this time. It looks like they are all locked atm. I really hope they bring them up in small groups, rather than crashing the auth server...
Apr 14th 2009 6:41PM sorry, this is definitely not the longest downtime for a patch, yet...
Apr 14th 2009 6:32PM Umm, account management being down isn't "intermittent" or recent, it's been down since reports of the bnet accounts not syncing earlier today. Yet they insist that its not related to the outage...
