World of Warcraft: CTD's!

I don't know about anyone else, but last night (Saturday) around 1930 to 2030 on Blackhand I was getting major lag, CTD's (with and without XFire up, which seem's to cause it too). I would see a Quest guy just disappear and come back in 10 minutes (unless this is part of something on the Alliance side I've never seen the Horde side do). But I had like 3 'WoW' CTD's in 10 minutes.(probably about 5-6 in an hours time) This was Blackhand. Running Cosmos.

For some reason I read this and thought it read ""STD''s"" which are of course almost as bad as CTD''s - dont ask me why - perhaps it''s fatigue or the fact that I am at work on a Sunday morning - blech...

Yeah you guys really can''t assume we think all the threads are abot WoW. When they show up on the frontpage block we don''t know it''s in the MMORPG Junction.

Yeah, I was getting crazy lag last night as well. I assumed it was because my wife was trying to download some software, but maybe it was WoW-specific. It would literally take 5+ minutes to put stuff up for auction in Ironforge.

I just had Blackhand crash on me.

World server Blackhand is indeed down right now. Sudden cut to character select screen, no warning.

Are folks still getting CTD''s (WoW) regularly? I am. And when you get that grey box to report it, does it send? Mine never does

I''ve had a couple of crashes over the last two days and no, that crash report has never sent for me either.

By the response to this thread it appears I''m the exception, rather then the rule as far as getting CTD''s almost every session?

Anyone have any idea why this could be happening to me? I''m playing at 1280x1024 with most things up. Could that be it?
(I have an Nvida FX 5700). Anything else? This is starting to worry me if it persists (and nothing is ever sent to Blizzard so they can be aware of what might be going on) when I do long quest, or runs etc.

I''ve had one CTD ever since the game opened and it was some error with wow and xfire. As far as lag goes I haven''t had one problem with lag every since the first week of release. Maybe I''m just special?

I have had no CTD''s, so maybe I am even more special?

I also have had tiny bits of lag here and there in the first 3 weeks (not referring to the bad mail lag and AH responsiveness) but none of it has effected my gameplay at all. Heck, I could even fight and not die with a 800ms ping one night.

No crashes but periodically I get an error on exit and it ''seems'' to send. I don''t sweat it though because it''s not a playtime killer.

have you tried a reinstall (I know it could take a while but it''s worth a shot..)?

Or is there a ''file verification'' with WoW similar to what EQ2 and CoH had?

So reinstalling won''t break a link or something?

Here''s an interesting tidbit:
apparently WoW remembered my old interface bar set up...
I had to remove WoW and reinstall everything (i.e. windows on up got reinstalled) and I was not forced to reset my command buttons. (they weren''t the latest ones I was using, but they were close)

When you CTD, please send your logs into support. Those are a HUGE help for the developer.s

I would IF(!!) they''d send. But they don''t. Never (well maybe the first day a couple). They just sit there. Another aspect of fustration.

Seconded, Donan. I''ve let it sit for five minutes on the ""Sending"" status; nothing ever happens. If they want any kind of useful feedback, they really need to fix that.

I had a nasty CTD problem last night: My toon was left in Ironforge and each time I clicked on her from the character select screen, I''d get a CTD. After realizing I''d accidentally started from the WoW executable rather than Cosmos, I tried Cosmos. Still no go. Rebooted my machine and it worked fine after that.

Whenever I try to send I get could not connect errors.

I got my first CTD the other night but I had been playing for around 5 hours straight so I deserved it.
