Rolling restarts for US realms Friday morning

Drysc informs us to expect rolling restarts for all US realms starting at 5:00 AM PST to apply a "minor hotfix." Downtime is expected to be minimal (around 15 minutes), and US players probably won't notice any interruption. But a hotfix? Blizzard's not said what they're fixing, which leaves us to guessing games as to the exact nature of the problem. However, poster Tuhljin seems to be on the right track when he points out that "if they won't tell you what the hotfix is for, at least part of it probably involves fixing an exploit." After all, they wouldn't keep us in the dark just for the fun of it... would they?

Rolling Restarts on US Realms Tonight

Well, they may have already happened on your realm, but starting at 4:38PM PDT rolling restarts began across all US realms. The restarts were apparently necessary to hotfix an issue with enchantments and items vanishing from players' inventories that was mentioned earlier. There's still no details on exactly what the issue with enchantments was, but it would have been serious to merit prime-time restarts...

Rolling Restarts Friday Morning

All realms will be going offline starting at 4:00 AM PDT Friday morning (that's seven hours from the time of this post). They should all be back online by 5:00 AM PDT, with an expected downtime of about 30 minutes per realm. There's no real information on why the restarts are necessary - Drysc only says they're being done to address a server-side software issue. (Perhaps this is connected to last night's database maintenance - though that was only on a few realms, rather than all realms.) So if you usually play during that time, you'll need to find other distractions.

Rolling Restarts Wednesday Morning

All US realms will be restarted starting at 5:00 AM PDT Wednesday morning.  The servers should only be offline for about 15 minutes, but you should be prepared for a bit of downtime if you play at that that time of day.  The restarts are required in order to fix what CM Eyonix refers to as a "minor technical issue," though I can't find any further information on what the trouble may be.  I haven't personally seen any problems in playing since today's patch deployment, but perhaps others have.  If anyone has the scoop on what's requiring these restarts, do share in the comments!

Early Morning Server Restarts

On Thursday morning at 4:00 AM PDT, there will be rolling restarts across the US realms to apply a "small server-side fix" for an unspecified problem.  (If anyone notices any specific performance differences after the realms come back up, I'd be curious to hear it, however!)  If all goes as planned, each realm should only be offline for 15 minutes. While this shouldn't have much impact on players in the US, it seems to hit prime Australian playing time.   Fortunately the scheduled downtime should be brief, and you can get back to your normal playing quickly.

Rolling Restarts on US Realms

Not all, but most US realms will be hit by rolling restarts Wednesday morning starting at 5:00 AM PDT.  There's no listed reason for these restarts, but be prepared for a brief downtime if you're going to be playing in the early hours of the morning.  Unaffected realms - which I believe are all running on new hardware - include Andorhal, Anetheron, Archimonde, Black Dragonflight, Dalaran, Dalvengyr, Deathwing, Dentarg, Doomhammer, Duskwood, Executus, Haomarush, Icecrown, Kel'Thuzad, Khadgar, Mal'Ganis, Norgannon, Scilla, Steamwheedle Cartel, Thrall, Turalyon, Ysera, Ysondre, and Zuluhed.
