It’s significantly later than usual; or is it just me?

It’s not significantly longer.

Updating ranks has always taken multiple hours. I didn’t work at Blizzard in 2005, but engineers who did have told me that they used to update ranks during maintenance, with the servers offline. Waiting for the weekly honor job to complete was one of the reasons that maintenance used to always require multiple hours every week.

Today our maintenance periods are much shorter, and this is partly because of big improvements to the honor update.
