As it stands at 4:17am only servers 1,2,3,5 and 10 seem to be up at the moment... which means I still can't get to my chars.

Thankfully though no apparent problems with the ID stuff or patching.

Ah.. did have a couple of chars on servers currently open. It seems that they've given (in the mail) every char a new minipet as a sort of 'thank you for coming back / waiting for so damn long and going through so much hassle to play again..

Well.. some good news at any rate. The state saving seemed to work nicely.. everything in the mail box still with 35 days left to claim it. Everything that was on the auction house seems to have been returned via mail leaving the auction house spookily bare.

Managed to check through various characters etc but got disconnected after 3hours and now can't get back in. I can log in ok (albeit slowly), but then it keeps throwing me to the select realm page, and then disconnects after I have chosen a realm. Will try again later and just assume they have hit an unexpected peak as everyone tries to check on their characters (8am at the moment)

From looking at the realm lists however, I do still seem to be missing a few characters. (from the old server 2)

As for the 'realm status' page, yeah.. either they messed up their link (on the support page of warcraftchina.com) http://www.warcraftchina.com/serverstatus or they haven't got round to doing/finishing that yet...


My thoughts on Netease? hmm.. I think Illidan put it rather aptly...
"You are not prepared!"


[edit]
heh, yeah doesn't even get as far as the realm list selection now, and according to my connection log:
GRUNT: state: LOGIN_STATE_FAILED result: LOGIN_AUTH_OUTAGE

That's why they said it's a beta Smile 3hours of game for 3hours of disconnection.

Did someone manage to run the game on an EU/US client yet?

I just was ingame. With the chinese client. So far it looks, everything is OK. Nothing is missing, all auction items are in the letterbox. And my sweet little shadow dwarf looks nice as before :-)

Just scanned the auctionhouse. 828 items inside. LOL

But play with a chinese client is absolutly no alternative for me. It drives me crazy. Always push wrong buttons, and with this installed bigfoot addon I become mad.

Please don't push so much. You can believe, that many people do their best to get it running. You will see a announcement if it's done.

If you want help, give your comments in the thread:

nah nah its cool, take your time. dont want to make you feel rushed at all.

i guess i could just wait until wowchina updates to 3.2 or wrath or something, that way i could play on a us/eu client.

sorry if you feel pressured. no worries man!

people, the servers have just opend a couple of hours and we are still running Beta.
Give them guys a break, I know Bol, Alex, Lee, Eddy and many others (sorry if I didnt mention your names personaly) have been trying for hours to find a solution.
There will be a solution, so in the mean time install your chinese wow, check your character and do some stuff in chinese Smile

Any advices in Shanghai? I live in Xu Jia Hui, and I've never see the wow box on any market.

Fake product in the computer mall?

dont worry, no hastle, take it easy, you know why?



CAUSE PLAYING WITH A CHINESE WOW VERSION SUCKS.


yeah, once you figured out how to set your interface, your bags are sorted out, cause you have about 1 million items that came from AH and you dont remember what is what, your talents are set (I know you can check a talent tree planer, but it still sucks) and you decide to only PVP, then you can relax and enjoy chinese wow version 3.@sgrmpf%

Playing with a chinese version sucks, that is my own opinion, because it takes me to long to know what is what.

Yeah, playing with a Chinese client is really tough - but I've been using the Chinese client for the last 4 years and am somewhat used to recognising what everything is.

The hardest parts are trying to remember drop down menu options (e.g. reset instance, trade with player, inspect) etc. However for those that have problems here, simple macros are a great help.

As for recognising spells and abilities quickly - again.. macros. Rename them to the English (or french equivalent) and voila.

Thankfully these days (unlike a few years ago) its quite easy to use the auction house. Shift+clicking on any item will put that items name into the search bar. Also, you get fairly used to which sections you check regularly.

The other complication however, is when an alert window pops up.. I still (after 4 years) can't quickly distinguish whether it is someone wanting to duel, someone inviting me to a raid, etc etc.

Addons are a saviour though. Auctioneer (Yay.. partial English interface for AH), Lightheaded (for questing help in English), TitanPanel, Bartender, XPerl, EnhTooltip... Most of the time I grab the item ID from the tooltips and plug that into wowhead or thotbot if I really need to check out an item.

However, with the addons (and a Chinese client) you'll need to alter all the localisation files that come with the addons.. else they will all be in Chinese like your client. I just rename all the zhCN.lua localisation files to zhCN2.lua and then copy the english one and rename that to zhCN. Seems to be the easiest way.

It does take some getting used to.. but (especially when a patch dramatically alters the UI in some way) but you get used to it. It is still a lot harder and makes you a fair bit slower to do anything.
