It had better be important.
I don’t think I’ve ever been flat out booted from the game and forced to download an emergency patch before. Seems like this must be something hugely important, what with booting me in the middle of a hard-fought WG, costing me the honor and tokens for winning. 20 minutes of hard fighting, wasted. Thank god I have time to do three WGs a night. I don’t know how I’d deal with this if I actually had something like a social life.
The forums say this is just a tools update, for the launcher (which I don’t use, and haven’t for years) or downloader or something.
Why this couldn’t wait literally ten hours for patch night boggles my mind.
Oh well. At least by punting me in the middle of the evening, this gives me time to deal with all the real life stuff like going to the bathroom or making dinner that I already did so I could play WoW all evening. So instead I’m just reading about Bat Boy and how Mel Gibson is to become the next pope. There is literally nothing else constructive left to do except sit here and watch the patch fail to update correctly over and over again.
Or, more accurately,try to start wow.exe, watch it do absolutely nothing whilst it demands access to fully control explorer.exe, and when given permission, instantly crashed explorer.exe.
Whelp, I’ma restart this here computer, and hopefully I don’t have to wait through that 50 minute download again.
See you on the flipside with an exciting story about how I put some guys I used to respect and revere on ignore.
