    In Game Store Gone?

    I logged in this morning and on my micro menu I see no store button, it has been replaced with the red "?" Customer Support button. When I hit escape I see no option for the store. Sooooo..... did they get rid of the in-game store? Why? Backlash? I see nothing on the official forums. What's going on?

    Might be a UI bug, I'll check my WoW to see if it's there.

    Checked: Confirmed. I can't see the ingame store icon anymore and now see the old trusty "?".
    Edit: I don't know why they did it though. Might be due to backlash, but I haven't seen alot of it honestly (I do not however visit the official forums). Might be it's causing a critical bug of some sort, and they've just decided to hide it while working on a fix (or they are planning something infinitely more sinister, like making the ingame store pop up every time you loot an item or kill a boss).

    Well I can confirm it too. No store button on my UI as of this very moment. I have the red question mark and it goes to the customer support window/menu/thing.

    Yep gone, and the old "help" button is back where it belongs. Lets hope it stays away.

    You can still open the store ui with "/click StoreMicroButton" but it just says "Loading..."

    Maybe a bug?

    I doubt that they've decided to cater to the whiners and remove it permanently. It may be some sort of precautionary measure due to the recent account compromises.

    Confirmed, it's gone.

    Chances are they're doing an update to it, I highly doubt they'd scrap it seeing as so far all it does is allow people to purchase items from the Online Store, in-game.

    That seems the most likely, and would be a good measure to take.

    Guess it's bugged or something so they temporarily removed it.

    I was surprised to see it was gone as well. Perhaps maintenance? I see no posts about it anywhere.
