    Question How could something so simple take so long to add?

    I am talking about the planned Reconnect Button on the Login Screen. It's WAY overdue and should've been added a long time ago.

    Hopefully Classic and TBC Classic get one too.

    No more having to reboot the game or reenter your password to log back in ^_^
    ...Ok, time to change the ol' Sig ^_^

    Thanks for this thread. I actually unsubscribed from WoW until they add this game-breaking feature.

    Eh. Not really needed for me but it is a good QOL item.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    The Battle.net Launcher signs you in automatically once you hit "Play." So, just close the game and hit Play.

    I wouldn't if Offline Play were possible personally.

    Oh they actually add it? It used to take me like 1 minute or more to log back in. Guess the best change i've seen in a while.

    Remember, that Ion promised to add switching to other character without relog?

    There is actually problem with reconnect. It's insecure. Client has to store auth data in order to implement this feature. And this auth data can be stolen and used on another computer.

    I agree that this is infuriating.
    Actually the game should make an effort to automatically reconnect, just throw me another loading screen or something..
    I don't even remember my password anymore, so this always leads to alt+f4 > press play on battle.net anyway..

    Switching char without relog should be less of a security issue, though, as you are already logged in.

    Yo chill, hes obviously talking conceptually.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    at the moment? no
    during first week or two of new patches? absolutely
    not to mention the increased likelihood of dcs on PTR and for addon developers/testers while testing their latest changes

    is it the most annoying issue in the game? not by a longshot
    is it really annoying every time it does happen? yes
    how long has it taken to address it? oh about a decade and a half... so yeah, it really does feel like an "about damn time" moment

    Basically this.

    Just X out of the game and click play on b-net again, that's basically your reconnect right there.

    Well what about you make a post to blizzard about the other small and easy to add things you think should be added already instead of, you know, shitposting on mmo-c.
