As I am sure many of you are aware, we are seeing a number of issues that have arisen since patch time. There are a number of overlapping issues which we are working on seperating and resolving. Most of this has come from Cross-Realm Battleground matters and can result in disconnections, high latency or other performance issues. These issues are impacting a number of realms in varying frequency, so presenting any list of affected realms would not be accurate for a worthwhile time.
We are aware of the fact that your particular realm may be down, so there is no real need to bump your post dealing with why your realm is not up or if Battlegrounds may be active or not.
Our programming team has been working with our networking team all day in addressing these matters and we are closer to complete resolution. In the meantime, I just wanted to let all of you know that we are aware of what your particular realm may be going through, but we are dealing with root issues that will effect all realms.
If you do not see your particular realm on any given list that may come forth today, it is not because your realm is being ignored or your problems will go unaddressed, it is simply informing you of what steps we are taking when it comes to realm restarts, etc.
