heard that could take 24-48 hours to fix this problem
The earthquake people mentioned hit nowhere near the Blizzard HQ. A 4.1 magnitude earthquake (weak) hit near Baja California, 270 miles from Blizzard HQ. A friend 5 min. away from Blizzard said he felt nothing. Reports of the earthquake are saying there is not damage or injuries - so very minor.
Post on the Blizzard forum:
"Just called charter. They also have 100% packet loss to battle.net and worldofwarcraft.com. They escalated when i told them at&t works fine. Waiting on call back." "
From the research I have done, the peer between Qwest and AT&T in Kansas is down. It has nothing to do with Earthquakes.
same in stl also
Yeah I posted it here first. Accessing wow's forums from my phone sucks. Still waiting.
Iowa here, not able to connect, friend in RI is able to though, but whatever.
"For if men needed speech in order to learn to think, they had a still greater need for knowing how to think in order to discover the art of speaking"
So I retract the eartquake idea (seemed probable) =P but I still hold to the fact that it is not directly Charter when so many other service providers are having the same issue and when some Charter subscribers are on and playing just fine.
Unable to connect to anything Blizzard. Everything else seems fine. Oh well, time to play Killing Floor.
ok really...so many STL players...what yous wanna raid while we wait! XP
Everyone with Charter, please call and report the issue. The more that report, the quicker this gets escalated: 800-211-4450
