Sep 7th 2009 11:06PM I never ran into the "Additional instances cannot be launched" message when running instances. Of course, I wasn't an avid instance-runner, but even during the times that I did participate, I never even received the message once. Maybe I just had good luck, or US-Bloodlust wasn't severely impacted as people portrayed it as?
However, it's a good thing maintenance is back to normal schedule, and Blizzard won't have to do extended maintenance to work on the issue. That is, assuming something doesn't pop up on the spur of the moment. :P
Aug 11th 2009 2:41AM If you're talking about the "Additional instances cannot be launched, please try again" issue, then I think you'll be happy to know Blizzard is currently working on the issue, but it's not expected to be resolved for a while simply because it will require extensive testing beforehand.

Aug 11th 2009 2:29AM Blogging on Wowhead is enough of a time consumer, but I'll sure to pass the message on some time later. You'll have be incognito, though. :(
Aug 11th 2009 2:20AM I won't be surprised if there's extended maintenance. Luckily I'm one of those people who's never affected by maintenance even though I live in the PDT timezone.
(Oh, and I hope Michael recognizes who I am. >.>)
