World of Warcraft Down - Hacked?

Servers/Realms throughout World of Warcraft experienced technical difficulties today and strange messages such as "Game ends in 2 minutes" started appearing.

UPDATE: The outage is also on top of the seemingly unrelated trouble with the "Vindication Battlegroups" as servers on the "Misery Battlegroup" are also down.

careful.. you could have 8.5 million angry nerds at your door in the near future

I should've added something, but instead some angry wow nerds (yes, I am a nerd, too, and formerly was a "wow nerd") did a quick disagree because I took pleasure in their inability to waste more of their lives.

I would have been pissed as hell if I still played.

Trust me, I wasted 150 real life days in-game.

You could chalk up maybe 24 hours of that to afk time. No one should ever play a game that much.

You start to lose your grip on reality. There's no end in WoW, either. You just try to get as much crap as possible to become as overpowered as possible and it takes a long goddamn time with scheduled raids throughout the week and at least 30 other people who want to do the same thing.

I wish that WoW would have been hacked to death when I was playing. It's a godsend when the game is down and you have no other option but to do something else.

It`s also a god send to have self control. A lot of mature well to do people can deal with a game like wow and never let it take over their life, some don`t. Like jelly beans.

testii4916d ago

anyone who can confirm this?

Montrealien4916d ago (Edited 4916d ago )

I`m at work so I can`t, but I mean, this has happened before. Why it is news is beyong me.

edit: everything seems to be working fine, all realms are up. Things like this happen in MMO`s, this is not news. And yesterday was server maintance.

Caxtus7504915d ago

As mentioned in the article this was nothing to do with the scheduled maintinence. The realms are all working now although some are still having minor issues.

The articles was written yesterday so was correct at the time of publication.

Montrealien4915d ago

all I`m saying is that it has happened before, server crashes happen, nothing new.
