I’ve attempted to play WoW 5 of the 6 days of my trial and on 4 of those days I’ve experienced errors that have stopped me cold.
Yet another patch has been released and I’m having great trouble logging in. The times I can log in after trying repeatedly in succession (accepting 2 EULAs every time) it brings up the in-engine updater which took only seconds previously, but today it’s sporadically downloading 1KB every 2 minutes or so.
I’m giving the game one last chance. If it screws up once more during the trial I’m revoking my exceedingly generous second chance to review the game “properly” for a month. 50% downtime is not acceptable for any piece of software, never mind subscription-based scamware like this train wreck.
