Update:

Maintenance has been extended to 11:30AM.

Realm login is slowly returning at this time; however, we will continue to monitor performance and access until the noted ETA.

--------------------------------------------------

Update:

Urgent maintenance has been extended past the original 10:45 am mark, and we are working to get a ETA at this time. Once that ETA is available, we will provide both in Breaking News and in the first post of this thread.

Thank you for your patience, and please remember to keep all posts in this thread civil and on-topic. Off-topic posts and posts that violate the forum Code of Conduct will be removed.

--------------------------------------------------

We will be performing a brief emergency maintenance on the authentication system which will affect all realm logins for a short period of time. We anticipate this process to begin at 10:30AM and be complete by 10:45AM.

Ah, yes. It appears this maintenance was delayed shortly. Apologies for any confusion, Alkalinda. The first post has been updated to reflect the new time frame on Breaking News (http://launcher.worldofwarcraft.com/alert). :)

Q u o t e:
I posted a message about an authenticator being hacked..... the message was removed. I wonder why??


Because your post was unfortunately off-topic and incorrect, Aluustath. This maintenance is for login authentication, a process which occurs for all account logins regardless of whether or not an Authenticator is attached.
