Just go to your WoW directory and run Wow-64 or wow.exe. Easy fix
Well at least I'm not the only one.
I'm very frustrated. A whole day of play gone. This is BS. Not a great 2015 start.
I waited 25 minutes in the queue to log into the game, then finally got the chance to enter but the Battle.net launcher gave me a message of failed log in attempt and disconnected me. This expansion has been pretty bad as far as game mechanics go. I would have thought after ten years they get some of these things working better.
Don't bother with the launcher; run the game directly. Sure, you'll have to enter your credentials manually, but it beats doing nothing.
I just got into the game by bypassing the launcher......I swear that launcher is the worst thing Blizzard has ever done for this game. I wish they would get rid of it. Unfortunately now you can't update the game without it.
1. Click launcher, Login, get told "You will wait xx minutes". 2. Click "Go Offline"3. ?4. PROFIT!
The first person's post about going to your wow folder and clicking the wow.exe or wow-64.exe works like a charm.
Nothing you can really do if trying to play hearthstone on mobile :c
Thanks for the heads up, just used wow-64.exe.Is this another script kiddie ddos?
Thankyou thankyou thankyou. :) works like a charm:)
Confirmed, Click go offline, manually enter in credentials and everything works perfect.
Click the go offline button, and it will bring up the launcher, then you can hit go online and it should work. Just did it and I bypassed the 16 minutes queue :D
Worked like a charm earlier today, but now, nooo. 15k+ latency, both home and world. This is in EU. Unable to log-in at all. Everything else works great though, Steam, Origin ++. Weird issue. Hope they fix it as I want to reach 84 before the weekend ends.
About 45min wait to login. Weird thing is, once the queue was up it started again, and even after it was up, I still had to log in with no queue. idk Very strange.
I doubt it was actually a problem with the launcher. Since the expansion, whenever this sort of issue pops up, it's usually a DDoS attack against Blizzard.
