How many of you lot play this?

Patch released the other day that includes many new things, including new talent trees, haircuts (LOL), achievements, pet talent trees and a huge under construction harbour at Stormwind in preparation for Wrath of the Lich King.

I notice the site is a bit light on WoW news and previews, but I'm guessing that's because the main news writers don't play much or have a huge interest in it.

If you do play, what server are you on?

Wrath of the Lich King is just around the corner and it's a little bit exciting :)

Me.


And I'm mightily fucked off with Blizzard at the moment. Fucking 10 million subscribers. Monthly fees gallore I'm sure but distributing a 3Gb patch via a POS updater software that struggles to deliver anything at more than dial up speeds.

I've been trying since Wednesday night to get myself up to date, to no avail so far. Sadly I was only home Wednesday and Thursday night, so it'll have to wait until Sunday late. :-(

Patch was 1.2gb for me and it took about 3 hours to get it through Blizz's woeful auto-updater.

Wow-Wiki has a list of patch mirrors that offer direct downloads and may help you get it a bit faster.

Yeah. I never installed Burning Crusade, so the "classic patch" was a bit bigger.
I managed to get a patch off a wow-wiki mirror but then after 3 hours downloading realised I had grabbed a TBC patch. I did have a free promo disk for TBC, so I went and installed that.
When I tried to apply the TBC 3.2 patch it then claimed the patch needs version 2.4.3 and my install was 2.0.0.8

I wanted to uninstall TBC but the dialog box was talking about uninstalling WoW, so I was scared it would completely remove the game.

I started downloading a 2x -> 2.4.0 patch which froze up around 75% in and treid again letting it run overnight. Sadly this morning there was a message that it had lost the connection.

/tears out hair

I'll go back to the joys of hunting patches on Sunday night I guess.
From what I hear it's all very pretty now.

Apparently WoW lost 500,000 subscribers over the past year, especially following the release of the latest expansion.

Hmm.



(There's still 11 million subscribers, mind).

Ahoy! Massive necro bump, but is anyone playing this at the moment since the big pre-patch?

There's a bit of an EG guild revival going on at the moment on the Bloodscalp server.
