The Coolest Part of Disconnecting
Disconnecting from WoW can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Especially when your in the middle of something important. Disconnects seems to always happen at the worst times. A ranked Arena match for 2000+ rating, or on Sapphiron right before he does a Frost Breath, while on The Immortal run!
Everything on your screen kind of freezes. Everyone is running in place, stuck in a casting animation, or running into walls. Your jump around with your character with your hands all glowing from what you were casting before you disconnected.
Then you hear the horrible screams in vent…
“Nooo it’s 2 on 1 now! We’re about to get Hot Hot Hot Streak too!”
“Move behind an Ice Block! Move move move! Disconnected… There goes immortal…”
The good news is that you can still hear vent, so it isn’t your internet that is down. The bad news is that you just cost the team/raid something important. Your partner(s)/guild now hates you for at least a week.
That is just the worst case scenario, but I can imagine that it has happened before. I’ve been having connection problems lately, and luckily it hasn’t been during anything like that.
Oh yea, the cool part. I found that when you are in the process of disconnecting, it is the perfect time to take cool screenshots. Especially if you are a caster.
This was taken when I was in Ironforge and saw that I was going to disconnect soon. I saw everyone running in place, or running into the wall, and when I tried to cast a spell, I was stuck in the casting animation. When you move, your hands will still glow, and the spell effect under your character is still there as well.
Now I need to find a use for this awesome shot. It just looks too cool! I wished I had a better computer so I could run the game with all the settings turned up. I bet that shot would have looked much cooler.
