Ouch... Can't help but feel a bit of sadness for not being there on this one... As a WoW veteran, I just for some reason couldn't find it in me to buy this expansion right off the bat. I still remember Cataclysm's late night release, I had to take screenshots because there were so many people crowded in the main cities.

Dude it is INSANE right now. I mean I kind of expected some lag but you'd figure they'd have the crashing sorted by now.

Snookies121289d ago

Yeah really, with how long they've had WoW going and how many expansions they've put out... Kinda wondering why it would crash. They've had so much time to prepare for this.

The queue times at mo on my tiny aussie server is 2hrs and it's only 12 pm lol night time will suck when everyone gets on

This doesn't have anything to do with PCs. It has to do with Blizzard's servers, ya know, consoles use them as well for online play.

EDIT: Lol, you went and changed up your comment on me.

I changed it before you finished typing so I had no idea you were in the middle of typing a reply
I thought that what I said would stir crap towards me and so I changed it
