Realm Status: Coming back online

Not that this should be unexpected, but maintenance has been extended today by at least one hour. There is no indication as to what's caused the downtime to linger on longer than it has to.

We'll keep this post updated and time-stamped with the latest news. You'll only need to look here to know.

6:45 p.m. EST: There is still no ETA on the fix. Downtime will continue for the time being. Another update will be provided in an hour. In addition to the game being down, the forums are down, the Blizzard store appears to be having issues, and the official Warcraft website is loading extremely slow. is handling the excess traffic fine, thankfully, so we should be able to continue to provide you with any updates we get.

7:05 p.m. EST: We are getting reports that some realms are up. Your mileage may vary.

Older updates are after the break.

Maintenance for Tuesday November 3rd

All realms will be undergoing maintenance Tuesday November 3rd from 3:00 a.m. PDT until at least 11:00 a.m. PDT. This is more or less the standard maintenance that we've all come to know and love so much. So hopefully this won't come as a surprise for folks.

We need to be diligent here and note that there is absolutely no indication patch 3.3 will drop tomorrow. That event is still at least a few weeks off from all indications coming into HQ.

Enjoy the downtime if you're not working -- go get some sun, eat a cheeseburger, do something off the game. It'll be leveling up in real life! Fun!

Multiple realms offline tonight

Another evening, another set of realms are offline. It appears to be a continuing saga lately. My guess is that Deathwing is a little anxious to get started with his destruction and is causing all these problems.

But really, all these realms offline are okay with me -- because I've been engaged in a captivating game of Fallout 3 as I get over some BlizzCon crud I've come down with. Yes internet, you needed to know that.

The realms offline tonight are expected to be down until 10:30 p.m. EDT, but I wouldn't count on them coming up on time. They rarely do.

It also appears a lot of people are stuck at "Connecting..." Although there has been no official response to this yet, we have been able to verify it happening at least.

The entire list of realms currently affected after the break. And while you're waiting, why not look at some hawt BlizzCon cosplay? After all, who doesn't want a little succubus in their evening browsings?

Update: Things appear to be coming back online... no promises here though.

Login issues reported this evening has been getting a massive number of tips in regarding problems people are experiencing when trying to log into the game. There is no official Blizzard word yet, but I wouldn't be surprised to see one soon.

The problems seem to be originating from people who have not yet merged their World of Warcraft accounts with their accounts. To do so, go into the account management page and select the appropriate options.

There have been some stability issues with the login servers the last few days, and this seems to just be the latest.

If you can't get in, check out our Guide to Patch 3.2 - we're expecting the patch to drop within the next few weeks. And if you haven't heard already, the Warcraft Movie has landed a director - Sam Raimi. It's World of Spidercraft, baby.

Update: Now there is an official Blizzard response to the problem, although there is no ETA on a solution.

Update #2: For those wondering, the issue was fixed overnight.

Current Realm Status: Up

Please see the updated information at the end of the post for the latest news.

Realms have been down today since 3:00 a.m. PDT / 6:00 a.m. EDT. A few realms were up for a short time earlier this afternoon after the maintenance was extended, however they were promptly brought back down.

There is no indication as to what problems Blizzard has encountered. While the official forums and account management are often offline right now, WoW Insider has a few sources where we are getting our information from and we'll keep you updated with the very latest.

Be glad that at least the in-game mail hasn't gone missing, and did you get that pony Ghostcrawler promised you?

Don't forget to check out WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1 for all our patch information, and stay tuned throughout the evening for updates!

Update 9:30 p.m. EDT:
Current announcements indicate that most realms are up and available for play, and those that are not will be available by 10:00 p.m. EDT / 7:00 p.m. PDT. Enjoy the evening!

Older updates will appear after the break.
