Merging Realms and Card Redeemtion Glitch
Posted: February 21st, 2014, 6:34 pm
This may be old news to some, but was new to me, so thought I would put it back out there. Apparently Blizz has acknowledged problem, but its a" no fix" . If you are on a realm that's in the process of merging w/ another realm and decide to make a trip to booty bay to redeem a pet code its possible the response you will get is " an error has occurred ' At least that was my experience. The codes were checked and there was bag space. I had already redeemed 3 other pet codes and on my lastt pet code "error occurred " Of course I thought it was me, but after realizing it wasn't I put in a ticket. According to the forums blizz has stated this is occurring during the merging phase of realms and that it clears up after completion, but that they haven't been able to fix the glitch. I'm a very patient and understanding person so it takes a lot to really frustrate me, but blizz managed to get me there. Blizz responded quickly and Grand Master Dauptia responded explaining the situation and that a code would have to be reissued ...no problem there. 2 WEEKS later still no code and they had closed out my ticket as resolved after 7 days. So I put in another ticket same info and their response from it. The response I got was ' don't reissue and /or duplicate the ticket as this will cause unnecessary delays and we need 24 hrs to respond " REALLY BLIZZ ITS BEEN 2 WEEKS HELLO !!!!!!!! That really pissed me off. After all this time I could have bought another $ 7.00 sand scarab tcg card and had it redeemed by now since our merging is over. On my realm, bonechewer, we had already been through one merge and I wasn't aware they were merging a couple more realms to us and that's basically when my incident occurred. I am glad this wasn't a high dollar pet, but it is one I don't have and want in my collection. So for all you pet collectors BEWARE that this is going on and do some checking on your realm status before you redeem codes for your pets because you may up waiting a long time getting that pet if you have to wait on blizzard.
