WoW Classic - Oceanic Realm Connections for PvP Matchmaking Reverted

With weekly maintenance on Tuesday, June 1 (10:00 p.m. AWST, Midnight AEST, 2:00 a.m. June 2 NZDT), we will revert this change.

We’re committed to providing a responsive, enjoyable game to players in every part of the world, and we will pay careful attention to PvP on Oceanic realms over the first few weeks of the first season of Arena play. We’re looking for ways to improve matchmaking and players’ ability to rank up without introducing unbearable lag.

We don’t want to permanently implement a region-wide rewards system where some of the players never play against the others. We’ll have an update on that for you in the weeks to come.

Thank you very much!

Following up on the Bot Ban Wave from May 25th, Blizzard has shared that they don't intend to ban players using the ConsolePort addon.

It’s hard to say exactly what might be causing disconnects.

Nonetheless, I want to clarify that we don’t intend to take action against players who are using any sort of typical hardware to play the game in a typical way.

On Tuesday we had an error in our detection routine that caused us to accidentally flag some ConsolePort users, and we reversed it as quickly as possible.
