KY here. The Worldofwarcraft site is loading slower than hellz and i can't get into the forums. Maybe the Mayans were talking about the World of Warcraft ending this year and this is the first sign of the apocolypse?
I believe this might be in relation to a certain hop somewhere not working right. I'm in central Illinois and can connect to everything except the southwestern US, easily tested on speedtest.net. My vent server located in Texas is also lagging horribly for me, but anywhere on the east cost or in Chicago is perfectly fine for me.
