I have been unable to connect all day and this evening at all. Naturally, I wonder if this is related to the DDoS attacks over the weekend. It does not seem from searches I did that this is continuing today but maybe it is? Is anybody else unable to connect?
At this point, I submitted a ticket just now just after midnight EST in the hopes they can resolve it. I provided all diagnostic info they requested, MSINFO & dxdiag reports along with 2 tracert reports to their Western and Central US servers which seem to complete with one timeout early on in both cases.
I notice it is taking a long time attempting to connect at the login screen and then the Unable to Connect error box pops up yet again.
I am wondering if the means to mitigate the DDoS attacks can ultimately wind up blocking legitimate account holder IPs somehow but that’s purely an uneducated guess. Anyway, I did ask them about that in case that is a potential issue.
My connection to the rest of the internet is just fine. It is only WoW in both forms that I cannot connect to at all today for all the times I have tried to. I feel sad… I need sympathies and loves from my guildies who I hope are having fun playing unlike poor me. Woe is me! Woe!!!
And no, I don’t want to go play outside. It’s dark out there. It’s just after midnight!
