Woohooo! World of Warcraft is getting ready for The Burning Crusade expansion pack. The new patch was installed over night and continued into the early hours of this morning, then all hell broke loose, the servers filled up as quick as possible and the channels where spammed with: "Where can I join the arena?!". It seems that Blizzard has removed the arena battlemaster until further notice due to some last minute issues.
There was a major server crash. Yep, that is right everyone experienced a weird crash or lag spike, where no-one could interact with the world, but they could still chat in the channels. Seems they buggered up the install. Oh and, never stand in starting zones or major cities when a new large-scale patch is released, you will get people spamming the General channel, running around screaming and generally asking some things that could otherwise be found out by reading the patch notes.
Anyway, now I really can't wait until The Burning Crusade release! Going to go play and see whether the lag has cleared up.
