Rolling restarts, some maintenance

The opening in game announcement tells us that there will be rolling restarts tomorrow beginning at 5:00 a.m. PDT / 8:00 a.m. EDT. Each realm will be down for about 15 minutes, and all the restarts should be done by 7:00 a.m. PDT / 10:00 a.m. EDT.

This is important in that shows patch 3.1 will not be going live tomorrow. No server downtime means no patch, so everyone can relax and enjoy the game as is for another week.

There is a possibility a few more realms will be down for an extended amount of time – and if that turns into anything major we'll let you know here.

Breaking News: Mystery of the melting ice solved!

Kisirani, "your friendly neighborhood World Designer" posted earlier tonight that they have a fix for the rather benign (or slightly annoying, depending on your take) bug that calls out "The Ice Stone has melted!" every once in a while.

The fix will require the realms to be restarted, and according to Kisirani they will "be doing [the restarts] off-peak so we don't interrupt this evening's gameplay."

So right on, Kisirani.

Mystery of the melting ice solved.

Now... about those clams...

"Emergency" rolling restarts

Logging on and playing might be rather difficult. All US servers are undergoing what now appears to be multiple restarts (Eldre'Thalas has restarted twice in the last 30 minutes).

The logon announcement tells us that the process will take two hours, and each realm will be down for about 15 minutes.

Ideally this won't be something that impacts the game too long. And dang nabit, it better not, because yours truly has a lot of free time this weekend he plans to use leveling up his Shaman.

While the servers are down, why not check out WoW Insider's Guide to Patch 3.1? It'll at least keep you wowified for the time being.

And if the servers do stay down for too long this weekend, I just want to let our Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Harper know that I'm going to join Alex in playing Warhammer.

The restarts, they will be rolling

In game announcements have let us know there will be rolling restarts tomorrow morning. The restarts will happen at 5:00 a.m. PST / 8:00 a.m. EST. Each realm is usually down for only 15 minutes.

There will be additional realms that will be down for longer maintenance. Currently Tichondrius and Proudmoore are listed as needing to be down for an extra hour. Additional realms will eventually be listed on the official Service Status Forums, although nothing is up there just yet.

We'll update this post, and keep you updated throughout Tuesday morning if this turns into anything else other than just a restart.

Server restarts for Friday October 24th

While the connectivity and general lag seems to have gotten better in the last day or so, there are still some lingering issues here and there. All servers will be undergoing rolling restarts on the morning of the 24th from 5:00 a.m. PDT to 6:00 a.m. PDT. Each realm is expected to be down only 15 minutes.

Ideally this will solve all the issues we've had since patch 3.0.2 hit last week, but more likely we'll just see things be better for a short time.

If this temporary down time turns into anything extended, we'll update this post.

Of course, this restart might have something to do with Zombies hungry for brains.
