It's probably your computer messing about, give it a while and try again later.
And then look at the damn site Questions & Answers.

That'd be an issue with the patch on their side. Just wait until they fix it. In the mean time, play guitar or something.

Yeah dude, a guitar forum is the best place to ask about your WoW problems.

Everyone is having the same problems really. Blizzard likes to screw things up right before a huge content release. This release being the expansion pack tomorrow.

UG might not be the best place to ask this though, check out the WoW official tech support forums and you will see hundreds of kicking and screaming players mad about the login issue.

Personally I havent been playing for weeks, I go to log in today to check on friends and as usual, its busted.

What am I doing instead of playing now? Im gonna go plugin, crank it up, and rock out.
I downloaded a .exe once, opened it, and it pretty much nailed my computer, and yes, by nailed I mean, got it's **** out and shoved it in my computers ass.

It may be that WoW isn't working 'cause of your internet firewalls... make sure that the following ports are open:

9100
9097
9090
9081
8087
8086
6112
3724

That's all the WoW and Blizzard Downloader ports (I think that's all of them)

Get there by going Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Exceptions and Add Port


And when you get disconnected, are you actually getting into the game? Do you make it through the character select screen or does it disconnect when you're logging in?

Also check the news thing at the log in screen, there's servers having restarts tonight I think.

to all the dicks and asses telling me to play guitar, i prolly would execpt for the fact that i share a room with my brother and he is currently sleeping and i would rather not wake him because i have respect, if u guys aren't gonna be serious than don't reply, and just because i play WoW doesn't mean i don't have a life, its a game, if u play playstation or Wii or any game in the world, i guess u don't have a life either.....

as for the serious responses, i think it is a patch bug because i was on there a half hour before i got the patch and everything was fine... sigh...

Why not? There are 400000 registered members (not that many are active anyway), surely someone on here knows what could be happening...


Oh yeah I used to play D2 and I know blizzard has loads of shit problems, they might be doing maintanence and it's pure coincidence that you installed the patch at the same time.

Should've guessed something like this would happen.

Bet I'm gonna get some of this as well, eh?

Despite the fact that I've hardly spent my time at home for a long time, and when I have I've been with people? People who play WoW aren't necessarily computer nerd loners who don't have a life.

Well it's probably just Blizzard being a bunch of dicks again.
Notice how ever since the big patch came out EVERYONE'S been having problems? It's like Blizzard is deliberately putting bugs into the game haha.

This shouldn't keep stuffing up for you too long, these things usually don't take that long to fix themselves. Assuming it's Blizzard, that is (which it most likely is).

Another thing you could try is using the WoW Fixer ("World of Warcraft - repair") It's a .exe file in the main WoW folder.

That might work if you use that.

Yeah dude, I'm having the problem too.

It's just an error that came about after the last mini-patch. It'll be cleared up in an hour or 2 probs.

Yeah I find that if WoW stuffs up, it means they've just done another patch :P

I guess that must be why I've been seeing my girlfriend almost every day, spent 4 days at my mate's beach house, and spending the next few days with some other mates. And band practice. All in the while playing guitar, reading books, and listening to music. Just in the last week.
Oh... oh... oh... but... I'm a WoW player?!

Yeah, I'm with Scourge on this one.

I play WoW, and yet, I go to parties, hang out with my girlfriend, hang out with my friends, play guitar.

It's not like everyone who plays WoW is a hardcore no-lifed nerd. I just play it as a fun thing to do. I have to share a computer with my family, so I can never really get a LOT of time to play it.

Change the settings so it downloads updates when you're not playing the game.

This also means you'll have better ping, probably :P

Yeah exactly.

It's the damn nerds who DO play it 24/7 that make it look bad for everyone. Even though that's only a small percentage really -_-

Easy, why is everyone getting their panties all up in a bunch over my comment? I didn't make the ****ing joke.

I know not all WoW players are pathetic losers with no social life, it's just the common stereotype and it's funny to stick with. One of my friend's who has a hot girlfriend, plenty of sex, decent grades, etc. dropped out of his second semester in college, stopped seeing his girlfriend (and stopped getting laid), and became addicted to this game. Luckily he quit. At least, that's what he told me.

WoW is for n00bs

Not only is it one of the worst MMOs to be released in recent years, it has contributed to the crappy state of all MMO games out today. I remember when the only people that played FFXI, EQ, etc were mature and reasonable, but when WoW was released all that changed. Its less tedious, easier, and cartoonish nature attracts a younger crowd to the MMO scene. They start out with WoW and eventually get bored with it, then they decide to try out another MMO such as FFXI or EQ. They realize that it isn't as easy as WoW is, so instead of quitting and going back, they buy accounts off ebay, ige, etc. They think that since they had some uber WoW character that they can immediately jump into something else, instead they act like complete retards and generally contribute to the downfall of the player base and server economies.

The fact is, WoW is good for casual gamers and people that don't want to spend the time and effort that it takes in other MMOs to have a good character. Having said that, its brought a lot of un-needed attention to the MMO scene. Not only does it attract a lamer crowd, its brought the idea of government taxation of MMO items about, it has the media's eyes on it, and its contributed to a massive funding spike in RMT companies (gold-sellers/gilsellers).

how can you relate WoW and final fantasy? theyre 2 complete different styles of game, and WoW does still take time and effort to have a good character, unless you spend ages on it every day. The only problem ive ever found is that its a huge spam attracter, with the while buy gold thing

no, they aren't. FFXI is a MMORPG, just like WoW.

And compared to the amount of effort put into FF and EQ, the effort put into anything in WoW isn't even comparable.

well the only technical problem with world of warcraft is that it will consume your soul and send it to a land were unicorns and dwarves exist, also, your gf (i doubt u have one) will dump you, you're friends are gonna make fun of you, your staying home every friday/saturday night and you will be called a pwned n00b (in real life)
