While most realms seem to have come back online as scheduled, several US realms are offline for an extra hour of maintenance this afternoon, and are expected to come back online at 12:00PM PDT. There's no detail as to why these realms remain down, but down they are. So if you play on one of the foll...

Tomorrow's regularly scheduled maintenance has been extended to open up a window for some required ISP maintenance. Nothing else exciting to expect, and patch 1.12 is still a ways out, considering the test servers are still online. However, tomorrow all US realms will be offline between 2:45AM and 1...

This week's maintenance has been extended - and will be starting at 3:00 AM PDT and lasting until 11:00 AM PDT. Yes, that means additional downtime for all US realms. There's no news as to why maintenance needed to be extended, but if you're thinking this may be a sign of patch deployment, that's...

If you've been on the forums at all lately, you understand that a number of realms - including two brand new realms - have been offline recently due to hardware failure. While the servers are now online and functioning, uptime has been spotty since Wednesday afternoon. As compensation for the dow...

An error in the automatic honor calculation process during this week's maintenance has required the honor calculation to be re-done for many realms - leading to an extended maintenance period for many of us. Realms in the following list may be offline as late as 1:00 PM PDT: Aegwyn, Aeri...

Today's maintenance will be extended by two hours in order to apply patch 1.11. However, instead of pushing maintenance time two hours later (to 1:00PM PDT) they're starting maintenance two hours earlier (at 3:00AM PDT). I don't know about you, but I can't wait to jump online and dive in...

After a few hours' extended maintenance, most realms are starting to come back online. Not coming back up yet are the realms involved in the migration. At 11:10 AM PDT there was an update saying that we should expect the migrating realms (Cenarius, Cenarion Circle, Hyjal, Lightbringer, a...

During tomorrow's maintenance, the servers Cenarius, Cenarion Circle, Hyjal, Lightbringer, and Uther will be migrated to the new World of Warcraft site. What does this mean to us? Well it means that these five servers will be down for about 18 hours (starting at 3AM PDT). However,...

This week's maintenance has
by two hours to apply a bug fix patch, so be prepared for maintenance to run between 3am and 11am (PST). No
information on what this patch may be fixing - but I suppose we'll all find out together, tomorrow.

After so many weeks of reading
about extended and emergency maintenance, I'm certain that everyone is pleased to hear that today's maintenance went
smoothly. The servers weren't down longer than anticipated, and when they came back up there were no
authentication or other errors. Very ni...

the fact that US servers were offline nearly all day yesterday, players are being given a free day of
service. While it doesn't make any of yesterday's technical difficulties go away, and certainly hasn't
quieted numerous complaints, it seems like a fair resolution.
