CrapWorld of SuckCraft January 10, 2009

It’s near 1 pm on my third day of WoW ownership and I’ve yet to play a single nanosecond of the actual game.  I can click on the Play button and I’m taken to a gloriously awesome looking login screen that tantalizes me with what is sure to be even more amazing stuff and all I have to do is type in my user name and password.  Alas, every attempt is a miserable puddle of failure.  I cannot connect.  The user name and password is fine.  I can easily access my account information (the part where they take your money of course) and everything is fine.  I went through all of the troubleshooting stuff they suggest.  There is no problem with the firewall.  There is no problem with the modem.  There is no problem with drivers for the computer or modem.  Everything is as up-to-date as possisble.  I even did a trace route from the Windows CLI.  It is clear sailing all the way from my PC to Blizzard’s servers. I have checked EVERYTHING.  I.Can.Not.Connect.  This is utterly maddening and I’m near the end of my rope.

Maybe it’s a Sign.  Maybe I shouldn’t be trying to play this game anyway.

Yes, I’m feeling sorry for myself.  Frankly, I think I have every right to.  So there.
