There is no point in trying to PVP, its just a stun fest and you get to stand there and watch your character get killed and have nothing to say about it.
Trinket out of it? Can't ..."You can't use this while you are stunned'... what exactly is the point of having a trinket that removes all movement impairing effects that cant be used when you are stunned.
PVP is a joke.
Nov 12th 2008 6:31PM This is probably related to the server index display bug. The server list often does not display the full number of toons you have (people were running into this a lot when getting near their limit..the screen would show 9 toons on a server when they actually already had 10).
The list often needs to be updated with some sort of new input to 'kick start' the db to update properly. Adding a level 1 toon would force the data to update to the current correct amount.
Nov 12th 2008 2:30PM Can't be there to meet the WI staff, but I do want to take a moment to thank you for guiding me through TBC, and keeping us up to date on all the happenings.
I have a Mojo pet I would not have if it were not for your article the morning of the bug...:)
I found WI just before the release of TBC, and I dont think I would have adapted to so many new fundamental changes to my class without you folks helping me along.
Today is a bit odd, I am feeling sad to leave behind Outland where I found so many adventures and new friends, and yet having my WI subscription is rather like having a group of pals along with you as you step off the boat to new and wondrous places.
So, hats off to you WowInsider staff... thanks for everything.

Nov 11th 2008 11:52PM Just a helpful hint from on IT guy to another.
Backups are great, but if a system crashes after a patch then you have to make sure your backup doesnt have the exact same problem hidden away waiting to happen again.
Secondly.. this was likely a corruption in the mail database. Not many IT guys can wave a magic wand and find all the corrupt data and simultaneously fix it in one second. It would take time to find the data, figure out how the data was corrupted, and how far back the last safe backup was.
Blizzard could keep the realms down while it ran checks on the mail data, or it could pull the data, plug it into a separate system and run their checks safely while players are back in the game. No effect on the game servers, no interrupted play while the db cleaning goes on in the background.
Might wanna consider a db refresher IT guy.
