From yesterday to now.I can't join the french's forum too, but the official website is -Ok- so I thing the problem come from ChinaNet for me.
So, we just have to wait and see... and wait.

I have the same problem, I've had the "unable to connect" message since yesterday morning although the servers were running when I checked. Now I can't connect to the European website.

I'm getting withdrawal symptoms! Mad

I have been unable to login into the WoW Europe server, and cannot get access to the WoW official website to see if there is a problem with WoW updates. This has been going on since Wednesday night last week, but a friend said he was able to login on Saturday so that suggests a possible problem with WoW Europe and recent updates? Does anyone have access to the game at the present time? Is there any suggestion as to how we are able to contact Blizzard and point out this problem to them? I hope it is a minor issue that will be resoved quickly, otherwise.............

Kilrogg server. Europe.

I send this message out to all in the hope that I will be told that this is a minor issue that will be sorted soon!!!!!!

I was able to log in on Saturday night, went off line at about 02:00 (PRC time) Sunday morning. Since then I have been unable to log in to my European server (Alonsus) but I could get onto the European website to check the servers on Sunday morning. They were all OK. Since then I have been unable to log onto the WOW-Europe website. Colleagues in the UK tell me that they are having no problems at all so it is not a problem with the servers.

Not so much of a problem for me as I am leaving for a Christmas holiday on Wednesday night but I hope it's fixed before I get back.

I get the same "unable to connect" thing as well.

I play on North American servers. I checked to see if the US www.worldofwarcraft.com website worked and it didn't. I logged into a proxy server... AND IT DID WORK.

Friends, i fear this is an issue with the chinese government. China is blocking WoW... but perhaps this will be resolved? (though i doubt it... eeeek!)

Does anyone know why the Chinese would want to block WoW US and Europe? Is there really any possibility that this will be resolved anytime soon? Is it a case of having more recent Chinese updates or is it more sinister? I hope not!

Hi Mates

Same Problem for me. Maybe our provider in china has closed the ports. It is the same now with Lord of the rings online i can not connect account page or neither on the servers from China related to China telekom according the Support Line.

Anyway Chinese WoW still works so for me mei wenti.

my problem was related to game files only.

For the website, " www.worldofwarcraft.com " is not accessible in china for the moment...

Use anonymouse or something Smile

Does anyone have contact details for Blizzard Europe to ask for their assistance to rectify (if possible) this problem?

Does anyone know if this has happened before?

I've found a way through and have got back online.

Open your WOW folder and find the file realmlist.wtf.

Open the file using Notepad or Wordpad. If you're on a European server the file should look like this;

set realmlist eu.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
set patchlist eu.version.worldofwarcraft.com

Make a back up of the existing file. I simply saved a version as realmlist.wtf.old.

Edit the text to read;

set realmlist 80.239.178.111
set patchlist 80.239.148.128

Save the edited file as reamlist.wtf. Do NOT overwrite your backup file.

Close notepad and you should now be able to access WOW on the European servers. If and when normal service is restored you can simply re-instate the original realmlist.wtf.

Note the IP addresses in the modified Reamlist.wtf only work for European servers. For US servers I think you need;

set realmlist 12.129.232.112
set patchlist 66.45.252.236

but I have not been able to check this.

Well forget all that, I've just tried to login using the modified file and now I cannot do so. It was OK last night so I assume that either Blizzard have changed the IP addresses or PRC authorities are blocking access. Maybe someone with more time than me will be able to find a solution.

Cheers
