Stability issues, rolling restarts for tomorrow {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2009 10:26PM Jade Sep 22nd 2009 9:55PM

You'd think after numerous patch days and other maintenance downtimes You would have figured out that patching doesn't go smoothly, it being a hugely complex issue.

In other words, "I have nfi what the problem is but expect me to complain about it endlessly"

Damn right I'm gonna complain about it! If the patch aint right don't release it. Blizz are always rushing their crap out and we are supposed to deal with it? It's not good enough for a game that requires a payment - If it was free then people would just have to deal with it.

It's people like yourself that make it easier for Blizz to keep on with this shit!

Patch 3.2.2 known bugs {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2009 10:16PM I got into AV but people couldn't res and then when the game finished we couldn't leave the bg and now I'm stuck on a 10 minute loading screen.

Wasn't there an article in the last couple of weeks saying there were 140+ QA's working for Blizz? Man, they must have the greatest job sitting around doing sweet FA!

Stability issues, rolling restarts for tomorrow {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2009 9:36PM You'd think after numerous patch days and other maintenance downtimes Blizz would've gotten it right by now.

"We are aware of the stability issues affecting several realms and instances this evening and are actively working toward addressing these matters as quickly as possible."

In other words, "We have nfi what the problem is and expect rolling restarts all week"

Sep 18th 2009 10:17PM Does the enrage timer on Koralon and Archavon get removed when you kite one of the bosses down to the other bosses area? Cos the enrage timer on Archavon is 5 minutes, yet the fight lasts for 6:45, or thereabouts.

[Updated] Realm Status: All realms to be online by 10:30pm EDT {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2009 9:01AM My server has been online for sometime (oceanic) but the lag is terrible, even is Azeroth. To top things off Blizz implement rolling restarts. It clearly states on the login page that US servers would begin rolling restarts at 5am PDT (10pm Oceanic servers) and Oceanic servers would get their rolling restarts at 12pm PDT (5am OS).

We delayed starting the raid to allow for the restart in the dungeon and as we were ready to go the restart msg pops up, 7 hours early. Sure enough they were bringing down Oceanic servers along with the US servers...

If I ran a company with such incompetence I'd be broke long ago.

Breakfast Topic: Most frustrating non-drop {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 9:48AM I have several of my own and others from guildees.

The funniest and most infamous example is a hunter from our guild never getting Legacy from opera in Kara. It dropped every week he didn't raid and was getting passed around to alts. Now whenever someone in the guild has poor luck getting a drop we call it a Legacy drop.

My own is the staggering legplates from H UK - gave up in the end and bought the wyrmrest legs. Next time I ran, they dropped. Embrace of the spider for my druid. Seen it drop 4 times and always rolled less than a 10 /facepalm. Any T8 piece dropping from Emalon for warriors. I have run it every week in both 10/25 man forms and only once a piece has dropped and it went to the solitary pug in a guild run.

Patch 3.2 In-Game fixes for Wednesday August 5th {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 9:29AM XT was insane last night (25 man). First try over at the side..wtf, spawns right next to him -wipe. 2nd try, tank in the middle, too many adds/not enough ranged - wipe. Switch some melee to ranged, get nerf scrapbots achievement (lol), ranged running too far away from healers - wipe. 4th and final go before the RL had a nervous breakdown, we downed him.

Raid called for the night - thank god. It was interesting playing wow again without mods. Xperl, dbm, decursive were giving lua errors galore and had to be switched off, adding more intensity to the fight. Fortunately bartender was ok and I didn't have to play with the terribad Blizz UI lol.
