I don't DC. I mean, of course when the servers are being bad I have the same problems as anyone else, but I'm not one of those people who DCs and the raid is waiting for them and it's a huge waste of everyone's time. That's not me.
Recently I've not been raiding except for Onyxia.
But tonight I decided to try it again. My guild started hardmodes in ToC a week or so ago and that sounded interesting. So in I go.
I'd entered too many instances recently. Apparently DM shares that cooldown with ToC. That was so stupid I didn't even consider it. So I missed the first attempt.
Second time I got in. Then I proceeded to DC constantly. Sometimes on relogging I'd get stuck at success. I'd hit cancel and get the realm list. Pick Zul'jin and then WoW would suffer a fatal error. The one that asks you to send an error report to Blizzard.
On and off and on and off. I was at least able to be on to get badges, and some unwanted holy boots, which now makes me feel bad that I was 75% useless over the fight. I missed the entire faction champions fight when I decided to restart my computer since I had nothing else to lose if I'd DC anyway. That didn't fix it.
At one point I couldn't even log in fully; I'd DC once the loading bar filled. I was able to get on my bank alt, hoping that would help. It didn't.
I've changed nothing with my hardware. I've added no addons except ones which were disabled anyway. I don't know what could have possibly changed since the last time I raided.
Can't get in.
Wipe wipe wipe.
Can't stay online.
Maybe WoW is trying to tell me to stick to my rep grinds and crafting and leave the raiding to other people.
To top it off, on this last DC before the fight started they asked if I could stay online for it. I thought so, since I'd been online for a while at that point. The moment I swung at the Valkyr: DC. If I'd left before the fight, someone was waiting in line to take my place. What a way to end a night, wasting 3 badges that someone would have otherwise gotten.
