    Look at the following map. You see servers in different countries connecting each other. That is basicly how internet all over our planet is tied together. If you connect from country A to a website in country C, then you have a node in country B before you can reach C.
    Note: The nodes in image are fiction and are only used as example.

    A node, called (external) ISP (Internet Service Provider), connects to another node then it follows a route to that node. Then you have a internet connection. If one the nodes in between has a connection issue then last node searches for a different route. If there isn't another way then there is a connection error.

    Example: Look at the node in Russia in the above map, there are a lot ways from Russia to Paris. So if a node on the route to Paris fails, then there is another way to reach Paris. So there is no problem for the user.

    This is the problem. One of the nodes has a connection issue. This node is close to Blizzard and the node is also in Paris (like Blizzards server). A couple of countries, trying to connect to Blizzard's server, uses this node. It is the last node before your connection reaches Blizzard. For this node is no back-up route available like in the Russia example. Meaning you get a connection error. Meaning you cannot connect to Blizzard to play World of Warcraft.

    Hope this clears up the situation.
    Thanks for explaining this I got the jist, but this was pretty helpful to me.

    But it wasn't Blizzard's fault or their servers, it was the nodes that the ISPs were using.

    Except it was NOT Blizzards fault. Their servers were never down, but a link to TeliaSonnera (who you have to go through to GET to Blizzards servers) was down. So its TeliaSonnera you have to blame, and NOT Blizzard. And yes, this is a fact. A simple tracert would tell you. So "blaming the internet" is actually not lame

    Also "FIX THEM" is kinda stupid to say...you cant "fix" a shit happens situation like this, so stop being a child and realize that shit happens in the real world. Its like saying "Fix cars" so we never see an accident ever again

    As said before everything is 'on' as the servers were never down to begin with! The ISP problem is solved... for everyone... and every server...
    Arguing with a troll is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what you do or say, he will just knock over the pieces, take a shit on the board and strut around like he won the whole damn thing.

    The same place they always disappear to when they realise their favourite toy isn't actually broken (the one they didn't and don't pay for): they went back online and fucking good riddance.

    No offence but if your day was ruined by this then you really need to go outside and get some serious perspective. This outage was probably healthy for a LOT of the posters in this thread.

    PS - mail Blizz if you want your £0.29 back.
    I don't know the recipe for success, but I know that the recipe for failure is trying to please everyone.
