So, anyone that logged on last night was well aware that the realms would be down for scheduled maintenance today. Anyone that has read any Wow-related site, probably knows that 2.2 has now been launched and you can download and install it immediately. Of course, you'll have to wait until 11 am to actually be able to experience the new content. And if you're on one of the realms that the Voice Chat isn't being rolled out on yet (like Bronzebeard), you'll actually have to wait another week to fully utilize patch 2.2.
My first comment about today's patch is that the background downloader worked perfectly for me this time. I've had all the settings correct. I've checked ports on my router. But the background downloader has been spotty for me in the past. So, I started the download this morning, just in case I needed to download the whole 76 mb file. But, to my surprise, I only had to download about 4 megs I launched the downloader. Yeah! Has anyone else had an issue with the downloader or has it just been me?
Since there were no major changes to the UI this time, I imagine that 2.2 won't break my mods as usually seems to happen on patch day. Sure, the mods will need to be updated with the correct version number, but I'm guessing that most of them will be the same. If you see any of your mods or hear of any "major" ones that got completely broken in 2.2, post that here as well.
