    Realm Downs.

    Ok. This is really starting to piss me off...I play like 1-2 games soemtimes and then get a f'ing realm down...I take my time when I create my games or join games and yet I still get the bs. What the hell is it doing this for? I have to wait like 3 hours to get on after a rd...and it seriously blows. What the hell can I do to stop this ****?

    Maybe they made the realm downs even worse, hoping to get more people to WoW?

    Normaly i have no problems with RD, but today I get one EVERY <censored> TIME I QUIT A GAME. :rant:
    And even if it was a questing game I've been playing for 20 minutes+. Everytime I quit I'm back at the login screen. And when I log in: RD. :grrr:

    OK, I understand that when I'm muling, or boss running, or whatever. But not when I'm QUESTING! :mad:

    I've been getting them pretty bad too today, and they usually last for 1/2 hour to an hour :eek:

    In fact, that is exactly what I'm doing now :mad:

    I haven't been doing anything erroneous to cause it, it happens when I'm just going about my business :(

    I have been having a lot of problems on USEast rejoining games that I make for people like hell cows. Like 'game does not exist' or 'game is full' and quite a few RD's too. Hope it clears up soon.

    I have had a few RD's, but they are gettting MUCH worse recently. Got one yesterday afternoon, lasted until I went to bed. Hopped on today, had one about 2 hours ago and it still hasnt let up. I thought USEast was supposed to be famous for RDs?

    When I get RD's I figure it's the Gods of Diablo telling me it's time for a "real life" break. Give my wife a hug, check on my son's home work, etc.

    Maybe it's bliz doing some preliminary work towards the next ladder reset? :clap:

    It is with me. I'm on another realm down right now.

    Yesterday it happened when I created games, today it's happening when I leave them.

    When i sign on it doesnt matter if i go super slow in joining games, and staying in the game a long time. Once i sign off i am realm down for a min of 30min, longest i have gone is a week of realm down, and 24hr rd is very common for me. Because of this i can only play once a day unless i leave the game running while i go away and do other things. I also cannot switch accounts because of this. I have no clue why this is and why it only happens when i am home from school, at my apartment i never get rd.

    Do you have a different type of internet connection at home versus school?

    i dont think u can prevent realm downs from occurring, but u can bypass it. just disconnect ur internet connection and connect it right back. you should be able to join immediatelly. only thing is, when u exit the game after returning, u will get another realm down. just do the internet connection thing again... its annoying but it works =P

    And it costs you nothing; oh, except for a local call (for dialup of course). If you have broadband, this might not work for you.


    You really shouldn't experience a realm down for a week. It kind of sounds to me like your eggagerating a little bit there mate ;)
