Am I really that good?
Or has it really been so long since pre-BC, and even before that with full server loads and waiting Queues, and every Tuesday being down all day long for maintenance, that folks really forgot that this is some seriously tricky code we’re dealing with?
I think on a previous post I said I’d be surprised, considering the scope of the changes, if the servers were even up by 8 PM.
I know some folks got in and out a little bit, but as far as I know servers are down and the authentication server be busted, and it’s about 9 PM Central time in the good ol’ USA.
Now, I feel very sorry for those of you that were really, really excited to get in there tonight.
And I’m also very sorry for those of you that got in for just long enough to change a hairstyle, or play with choosing a spec.
If everything had rolled out insanely smooth, like a pint of Guinness while watching Brotherhood of the Wolf, well, we’d probably be taking it for granted.
as it is….
There were a LOT of people in the comments, both in the official WoW Community Forums and in the comments on WoW Insider today, before 2PM Pacific Time (The time Blizzard told us the servers would go live), that literally were ‘counting down the minutes until 2 PM’.
They said that! They were just counting down the minutes til 2!
I would have enjoyed seeing it go live, I was going to go spec my Druid and womp on some things, go into Stratholme Undead and enter the gate area where dozens of rats spawn maybe, and take screenshots of me Swiping them silly in good old fashioned fun.
But as it is, I read the graphic novel Wanted by Mark Miller (kept seeing the main villain as an evil Eminem and giggling, is that wrong?), I occasionally tried to log in, I checked out a humor website and watched some Youtube videos… watched Junkyard Wars (the episode where they make bridging vehicles, not bad) and basically relaxed.
I hope the servers come up for you tonight, if you are still waiting online.
But you might ask yourself… “What if I go to bed early… maybe if I wake up an hour early in the morning, they’ll be up and I can play!”
Time for me to tuck Alex in for the night, and go to sleep.
Sweet dreams, folks! Best wishes!
“Counting the minutes til 2…”
