World of Warcraft: "Issues"
Posted: Tuesday September 4th, 2012 by

I've been doing my best to log in and play WoW since patch 5.0.4 launched last week. My play time typically goes as follows. Open WoW. Search -again- for my authenticator. Log in. Hover over the Mists of Pandaria "Update" button for a while. Enter the World. Then play until the UI completely bugs out, the map goes black, and I can't accomplish anything because the necessary windows to move on in the game.

It should be noted here that the graphics themselves do not break as the comic indicates; it's just the UI that goes loopy. If I'm so inclined, closing the game and logging back in is enough to rectify the situation. The timeline differs from play session to play session and thus far I've not seen something that is the consistent cause of the breakage. I just take it all as a sign to get back to work.


Many of you noticed this weekend that the server GU is hosted on was having some problems. It was unfortunate to lose several days worth of traffic, but GU was not the only site affected. This was an issue for the entire Blind Ferret network of sites: Least I Could Do, LFG, PVP Online, Goblins, Something Positive, Girls with Slingshots, GU, and probably more than a few that i don't even know about.

Work is still being conducted on the servers, so expect the occasional timeout, inoperative database, incomplete site load in, etc. When all of this settles, I'll reopen print orders on the site. Until then feel free to buy up some of the nearly 1000 remaining original artwork panels I have in my physical archive: Original Art - Pricelist
