Did the battle.net merger ruin the server?
#1
Alright, I'm new, and I have been dying to try this server. I haven't logged in yet, posted my introduction last night and it was approved and I made a server account this morning. Turns out, I had patched too high, and once I fixed that, got ready to log in. I felt happy "Finally some good roleplaying!" I thought to myself and then...BAM "Your account is not merged with a battle.net account" or something of that calibur. I can't log in, and I can't merge this account with a battle.net one (I don't even want to try that.) So are my hopes smashed, or is there a solution?

I'm trying to figure out a way to fix it on my own, but help is appreciated!
Rotholan: "I do enjoy violence. It's the mess that I feel distaste for."

Aiorez: "My blade is not an extension of my arm, but rather an extension of my will."

Avrana:"I must fight. For if I cannot defend my home, I am nothing."

Allister: "This is the part where I kill you, right?"

What do you mean, patched too high? We're at the latest patch.

Also, ensure you're running WoW from Wow.exe, not the launcher. Furthermore, double-check that you've made the changes to your realmlist.wtf file, and that there's only one of them (it usually helps to do a search on your computer for realmlist).

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

I thought this would happen. I knew this was one of the reasons why Blizzard did it. The problem is that ( I believe ) your account name here is the same as one on retail. With the realmlist, you can connect to both retail and CotH without changing them somehow, so I'd say the best bet here is to make an account with a name that hasn't been used on retail.
Who is evil, who is blind?
In the name of who you'll find
You're not supposed to question faith
But how do you accept this fate?

Well, What I meant was I got a wowerror, so I repatched, and that fixed it. And I am using wow.exe, so I'll try making another server account, and see if that works. Thanks.

But, does that mean I have to create another forum account too? >.< I really don't want to have to make another introduction, and I don't know if I can just make one for this reason...

EUREKA! I FIXED IT! Turns out it WAS the realmlist, how stupid I can be sometimes. I thought I had the correct realmlist, but I decided to open it and see, for some reason, it was this massive document on loading strange things O_o, I deleted it, and fixed it, then tried logging in and it worked!
