    Realm Connections planned for September 29 (NA), Khadgar Characters Update

    Realm Connections planned for September 29 (NA)

    As many players know, this connection was previously planned and ran into issues.

    On Tuesday, we’ll begin the additional maintenance period for these four realms at 8:00 am. PDT (11:00 a.m. EDT), and the realms will come back online when the connection process is completed, which we’re estimating to be around 4:00 p.m. PDT (7:00 p.m. EDT).

    Khadgar Characters Update
    The recent bug that caused characters to delevel and rollback in time several expansions has been fixed for most players. If your characters still have issues then you can make a ticket to get them fixed.

    Good afternoon!

    The work on this issue is ongoing, so we don’t have much new information to share other than we continue to fix up characters. Thanks to everyone who has confirmed the return of their character so far. For those who still have characters affected, keep an eye on your character list for changes.

    We’ll continue to share updates here as they become available. Thanks!

    As bugs go, that's a pretty damn awesome one.

    Right? I'm surprised it's even something that can happen.

    Happened to me as well.
    Tried to retrive a character and noticed alot of old chars deleted like 8 years ago was restored across other realms and was lvl 120. My main was even duplicated. While other chars was gone

    Wish I just harvested the gold and kept my mouth shut, lol

    What an odd "bug", looks more like someone was messing with the DB. Luckily my characters seem fine though, at least in the character screen.

    So 6th October for pre-patch pretty much confirmed, I doubt they want connect servers and implement most important patch of expac at same time.

    I think few people may know this already, I noticed WoWhead put warning that it's last week to do 5 mask Orgrimmar for Mad World, last week we didn't had such warning for Stormwind. And I heard corruption rotation ends on 6th.

    Isn't the same, probably this fix needs to restore a backup and restore stuff ins't the same process.

    because the gms cant, this bug happend with server merge with probably very old databases they had to restore and do manual work to merge, item restore stuff thats connected to the live game databases is probably cleaned after a month or so.

    I think a bigger indication is the 6th is when Brewfest and the next round of Timewalking ends. Probably don't want a major shift in level and gear in the middle of grind-heavy events.

    That's what I was implying. Someone "made a boo-boo" while doing something else in the database. Well it's no big deal but I have to wonder what caused them to revert some characters to saved data that is years old.

    GM's these days are most likely some underpaid employes in a callcenter in the middle of nowhere in a low wage country. They get a hand full of scripts/commands that will most likely fix the most common problems, but it's highly unlikely that they can freely roll back stuff, let alone change things in the database. They are also full of shit, sometimes because they don't speak your language properly and only work with makros/copy&paste or sometimes because they can't be arsed. I had multiple cases over the years where one GM supposedly couldn't do something while another just did it in a matter of minutes.

    To be more accurate,GMs haven't been a thing in many years

    There are just Blizzard CS employees handling all games at once,as opposed to GMs specialised in WoW. As for the "underpaid employes in a callcenter in the middle of nowhere in a low wage country"....Yeah I'd believe it

    How is it Blizzard does something as mundane as change the color of a random bush in Elwynn and everyone is on the forums crying foul for what feels like months on end. But when a bug occurs that delevels characters I hear almost nothing about it XD

    EU could also do with a few more realm connections. NA's now had two in a row and EU none, unless I'm just blind
