Game won't start?

Post by username » Sat Nov 17, 2018 11:45 am

Until yesterday i could connect just fine, but now after something was downloaded by the server launcher i recieve this error message when i try to play the game:
Data/enGB/wow-update-enGB-17950.mpq: Cannot stream required archive data. Please check your network connection. For more information, see:

When I try to delete the file I can access the server and see my characters, but when I try to enter the game my game crashes. Anyone know a fix for that?

Thank you for submitting your request to resolve your technical issue.

The launcher has been updated yesterday (16th of November 2018), which has been released to help resolve the issue you are experiencing.

Please, follow these steps to fix your issue:

1. Download new launcher from How to Connect guide (can be found on the main website and in these forums)
2. Replace your old launcher with the new version.
3. Delete file called "pid" in your game's root directory (typically something like C:/Games/World of Wacraft/)
4. Run the new launcher, let it download the new update and you can play again :)

Thank you for your patience and we are sorry for the inconvenience.

With Love,
