WoW: Burning Crusade on Fire

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Shatters Day-1 Sales Record is a press release that wows us with word that the new WoW expansion sold more copies in its first 24 hours than many games will sell in a lifetime, with more that 2.4 million copies sold:
Day-one sales totals on both continents were similar, with an estimated total of nearly 1.2 million copies sold on the first day in North America and an estimated total of more than 1.1 million copies sold in Europe within the first 24 hours of launch(a). By the end of the first day of availability on both continents, a total of more than 1.7 million players had already logged in and upgraded World of Warcraft to play The Burning Crusade.

I'm been playing a 10 day trial of WOW, and I get "Disconnected from server" at least 3-4 times an hour, sometimes in less than 2 minutes...

I used to have this same problem with City of Heroes WAY the hell back... I ran a positron (or was it synapse...) TF one time where I couldn't stay logged in long enough to do anything after finishing buffs (Speed Boost FTW!!!). I'd drop... try to get back in, rebuff, drop... heh Gawd it sucked... but I was able to stay in the game during the AV fight and got my SO...

As for how it was eventually fixed... No idea... had nothing to do on my end (seemingly)... Pretty sure I had also tried updated drivers, etc... It's possible they fixed it on their side, and this is likely because they did make some netcode improvements AFAIK.

Don't really have any suggestions on how to get this resolved, but like any PC problem, it can be caused by a few of a million things... And it's quite likely, it'll just fix itself (so ta speak).

Ok I do have suggestions... Try your PC at a friends place that has a different ISP... Try a diff server, like Zul'Jin (horde), where you can say hi to Skane (Undead Rogue) : )

Anyways... G'luck... I know how insanely annoying constant disconnects are, and I hope it's resolved soon ; )

If you do happen to find out what's wrong, but your 10 day trial is up, or some shit, lemme know... I have extras, or if you have another email addy, you can just get the referral one set up (again) : )
