FAQ: My realms is down, but WoW Realms still tells me it is up. Why?


A new entry has been added to the FAQ page for WoW Realms



**My realms is down, but WoW Realms still tells me it is up. Why?**



The data that Blizzard is providing for the status of realms is always a couple of minutes behind (sometimes up to 5 minutes or more) the actual state of the physical realms you play on.



You can see the same type of delay on the Realms Status pages (US, EU, TW, KR and CN) that Blizzard are hosting themselves.

Sneak peek for WoW Realms 1.5

You may already have seen the sneak preview for WoW Realms version 1.5 on our Twitter feed (@littlegemsw), but if you haven't here is your chance.

Battleground info

For every realm you will be able to see;

  • Current faction holding either Wintergrasp or Tol Barad and when the next one is scheduled (Next at ~xx:xx)
  • If a battle is in progress (In progress...)
  • If you can start queueing for a battle (Populating...)

WoW Realms v1.0.1

Today we have released version 1.0.1 to the App Store. It will probably take a couple of hours before it will be available for download through the App Store.

With this version push notifications are again enabled.

Take care!

Issue with provisioning profiles

It appears that while submitting WoW Realms to Apple for review an older version of out provisioning profiles. This causes the push notification mechanism not to be working. If you managed to download WoW Realms before we took our application out of the App Store you will see similar error messages (see image below) when first starting WoW Realms (register for push) and/or when changing the settings for Quiet Period.

The rest of WoW Realms functionality is working as it should.

We have downloaded the latest versions of our profiles from Apple and used those to build an updated version (1.0.1) of has been again submitted to Apple for review.

We are hoping that we did everything correct this time around.

Take care!

App Store Submission

Another deadline has passed, but today we finally submitted our app ‘WoW Realms’ (yeah, indeed we needed to change the name of the application) to Apple for review.

Hopefully we have followed all the rules and the review should go smoothly. If not we will work harder to fix the issues raised by Apple and re-submit.

Fingers crossed.

Take care!
