Wednesday, June 6, is World IPv6 Launch Day, a day when companies and individuals around the world will be working to permanently switch on and support IPv6. Blizzard is getting involved, and so can you!
Beginning on June 6, players on realms in both US and Europe will be able to connect to the game using IPv6.
Here is IPv6 General Information：
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the technology behind the next-generation internet. IPv6 was designed to succeed the current version of IP (known as IPv4) and solve many of the current version's issues, such as the dwindling number of available IP addresses.
World of Warcraft is currently preparing for this transition by configuring our servers and game clients to allow both IPv6 and IPv4 connections. Not all servers currently support IPv6.
You may have noticed a new checkbox become available under the network section of your game options. This will allow you to connect to World of Warcraft if you have properly configured IPv6 on your computer. Currently, very few people will be able to connect using this option. If you are unable to connect with the World of Warcraft IPv6 option checked, please uncheck it and try again.
Blizzard Entertainment will not be able to assist you with setting up IPv6 on your computer.
In general, you need all parts of your connection chain to be ipv6-enabled:
- Your computer has to support ipv6 (modern computers do)
- Your home router/modem has to support ipv6
- Your ISP has to support ipv6
- The service you connect to (Blizzard/Battle.net) has to support ipv6
IPv6 is the next-generation protocol for driving the Internet. The world has run out of IPv4 addresses, and while there are workarounds and various ways to continue to work with the existing protocol in the meantime, IPv6 provides a much better long-term solution.
Only North American and European realms are going to be available in IPv6 now.
We will keep eyes on updates on the progress in deploying IPv6 to other World of Warcraft realms and regions in the near future.
