I’ve been disconnecting from WoW a lot lately.
I’m not sure why, everything else is fine, it’s just WoW. Doesn’t appear to be a latency thing, just one minute I am running along, next I am hearing the roar of the starting screen dragon.
Apparently PewPew has been disconnecting too, just not as nicely as me. Not just him but a large proportion of the WoW population.
Mind you disconnects are nothing new to me, I have a long history of DCs. Most of the time it isn’t at an important moment. Even when I am questing and grinding and DC I generally come back to find a corpse at my feet, not my corpse at someone else’s feet. The only reason it’s a concern now is I am the healer, not the disposable DPS, if I DC during a boss fight (and I have), then it may spell disaster (once it did, another time I reconnected in the nick of time).
So my long history of DCs has made me notice something different lately. Until recently when I DC’d and logged back in I would:
- Be outside the instance door, if I DC’d on an instance.
- At the Battlemaster or point of origin when in a BG.
Lately, no matter where I die, I come back to the same place.
- Mid boss fight, I pop back in to drop some last minute heals.
- Mid BG, I pop back in to collect my BG marks or throw a few more heals.
EotS Disconnect recovery
I mentioned just yesterday how my EoTS team came back from 370 to win the match.
I DC’d when we had 1570 points!
Previously this meant I would return to the Battlemaster with no honor, marks or XP to my name.
This time I collected my loot!
I don’t know what Blizzard changed, but whatever it was GJ!
edit: OK, considering such a large proportion of WoW players have been experiencing this only since the release of 3.2.2, maybe I should rephrase that as GG… and not in the good sense…
Still, if the relog to your last position remains after they fix the DC issues, I’ll be a happy Gnome
edit2: Lethal has provided a link to the official forums with suggested solutions to these problems. Check it out and if it works for you, get down on bended knee and praise him
