    i just bought WoW and it took about an hour after installing all the patches. i click on the shortcut and it opens up a little world of warcraft window, and i click "play". the screen then goes black and stays like that forever. i've held down the power button 4 times now trying to open it.

    i went to the blizzard site or "" and "added a game" to my home page and typed in the authentication code and thought that was the problem. but soon after trying to play it, it went black again and stayed like that...once again causing me to manually shut down my mac. WTF is going on, does anyone know what i need to do??

    please help! thanks

    Is it working now? Sometimes the servers go down?

    Oh no..

    Looks like someone will have to interact with the real world.
