A couple fixes have been pushed through that should hopefully make these more accurate.  The most important fix is that if you change guilds, it should now be updated properly. Remember that the armory has to first update a guild change before we will notice it. It may take up to 24 hours before the fixes fully propagate through as we need to get your latest guild information again.

Also, just a heads up for those who aren't aware. The Armory seems to be having issues updating arena teams. If this is affecting your access, please shoot me a PM with a screenshot of your character tab. Based on that and your gear information, we can usually manually grant you access. Back to Top

I'm sure we were all expecting it after how terribly tonight went. Apparently they completely underestimated how many people would sign up and what their servers can handle. They will do some internal stress testing on the server to see if they can fix it, and if not, the issue may have to be patched. =/

The tournament servers are being brought down indefinitely until we can solve the lag issues players are experiencing. We will attempt to hotfix the issue tomorrow during extended maintenance. Depending on the results of our stress test, there is a chance that a hotfix will be insufficient and we will need to patch before the tournament will continue. We are actively working to track down the issue as quickly as possible. There is currently no ETA on when the tournament realms will return.
