Nov 2 Long loading screens & lag, why? I have been having long loading screens and lag since I downloaded the classic wow demo. Is this normal? I don't have lag since I got this new iMac. Should I just uninstall the demo or is there something else I can do? relatively easy since I am a not that smart when it comes to technical things on a computer. please help... :(Gitty0 Nov 2

5d Curious why Mac over PC for WoW? I am new to gaming in WoW on a Mac as I finally got my 2012 Mac Book Pro 13" up and running. I also own three Asus RoG PC laptops. I am curious why the folks here prefer using a Mac over PC to play WoW? I assume it's because he/she enjoys the MacOS better than Windows 10? :) Just getting some new feedback as a new Mac gaming user.Jaianya24 5d

Nov 5 WoW page on Battle.net launcher is blank Since yesterday, the World of Warcraft page on my Blizzard Battle.net launcher has gone blank. I have no options, no ability to select region/account, and no "Play" button. I still have the bar with "Games", "Social", etc. at top, and I can select other games (which all have launcher pages that work fine) but when I select "World of Warcraft" the bulk of the window goes empty, without even a game logo. The standard background for Battle of Azeroth is still present, but much darker than before, as though there's a slightly translucent black overlay on top of it. Quitting and restarting the launcher hasn't fixed the problem, nor has rebooting my computer. I can still launch World of Warcraft manually and I have no current need to adjust options or change my account settings. Also, a game update occurred yesterday evening after this problem started, so I know those are still working. So this isn't an urgent issue, but I'm still concerned. Any tips about how I might fix this? I'll also note that I haven't been seeing any news links on ANY of the individual game pages for several months, and still don't. I can still see news by clicking on the "News" page at the top of the window, so that hasn't been a problem.Ismat6 Nov 5
On Tuesday 9 th January was on hold for almost 30 minutes finally got a representative from tech support named Chanelle, 2 mins into the conversation and of telling her the situation it seemed that she did not have the patience to help didn’t say anything and just hung up, gave her the benefit of the doubt just maybe it was a drop call but she never called back. Still on the phone again waiting for over another 30 Mins on for another representative. Apple for being such a expensive product has very poor customer service and responses to calls aren’t efficient not professional at all

5d Crashing if I minimize or switch windows Hello, Whenever I switch screens or minimize wow at all, when I come back the came has completely crashed (mouse turns into the little spin wheel). I then need to force quit the program and restart it. I have tried to reset my game options on the Blizzard app, does anyone have any other suggestions for me about how I can remedy this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!Båloo4 5d

DO NOT USE this company! Complete false advertising. They quoted me saying the work would cost a maximum of $500, and wouldn't do any work unless they had my permission first. They did the work and then the bill came to over $1,000. I did not pay and then they threatened to take it to collections. They didn't even have my signature on any kind of contract. I was so irritated with the whole process after they hounded me with calls and texts, that I finally paid them almost $500, for basically nothing. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY with this company. I suggest going elsewhere.

Oct 31 Unable to launch game - Mojave 10.14.1 (beta) Hi all, I can't seem to launch WoW - I've uninstalled/reinstalled it and all that happens is, is the icon "bounces" in the tray for a bit, the launcher says the game is running and then nothing else happens, no splash screen, anything. I'm on Mojave 10.14.1 (beta) (not sure why, I opted out of the beta). 2018 MBP w/ Touchbar.Daefish2 Oct 31

Nov 2 macOS update message when launching WoW Is there a way to suppress the warning regarding current OS version when launching Warcraft? I'm currently on 10.13.6 and recently I started getting the message that there is an available update to my OS which will increase stability and whatever. I'm not unfamiliar to the message, I have seen it before with other updates to 10.13. I'm planning the update to Mojave at some point, but would like to stop this annoying message, it prevents auto-switching to WoW as it launches.Durr4 Nov 2
A few days ago I spoke to an Apple customer service rep about getting an adapter. I first went on line to see which one I needed, wasn't sure so I asked for professional help. After twenty minutes, after being on hold for about fifteen minutes, I spoke to someone who didn't seem to have a clue. She put me on hold and then got back on the line to tell me which adapter would work. I needed an adapter for my older printer, so one end had to fit into the back of my new Mac and the other fit the printer plug. The adapter arrived today and it was too small at the computer end. I called Apple back. To make a long story short, I spoke to five people - all of them useless. I was wondering if I was speaking Klingon because nobody seemed to understand that I needed the adapter to plug into the back of my computer and that the other end did fit my printer. They kept assuming that the printer end was the problem. I was passed on to a supervisor who was just as clueless. I was then passed on to someone who was to source the right sized adapter for me and she was the worst of the lot. I can't understand how a company that makes my computer has no idea which adapter I would need for it and after five people, finally one of them realizes that Apple doesn't make them. I got all my other adapters at The Source and they fit perfectly, unfortunately they no longer carry this product. The worst customer service ever and not once did anyone say to me to return this item because I was recommended the wrong size. Not once did anyone offer a refund. I sent the stupid thing back this evening with a note for them to 'stick it where the sun don't shine.' Go anywhere else if you need help with products for your Mac - Apple customer service reps don't have a clue.
