Too Many Attempts - 503


85 Worgen Mage

Basically every time I try to login and conduct a Faction Change it states that I have used up 'too many attempts 503' which isn't true because it happened the first time I tried to log in to do the faction change and I have logged into successfully beforehand :)

Any ideas?

same problem here ... Too many attempts. (503) on the first login for Faction change

EDIT : I guess it could be related to some of the services being unavailable ... would have been nice to see exactly which services would be unavailable during the maintenance

Considering that I say to clear your browser from cookies and caches.Seems that your browser tries to use the "maintenance time" attempts.
Check it.

Greetings, folks.

Quite a few players have reported the same problem and it appears that it may be an issue at our end. I'm afraid I don't have an ETA as to when it should be solved, but please rest assured that it's being looked into.

We'll post an update here in the forums when we have more news. :)

Sorry for any inconvenience caused, and my thanks for your patience.

Please try clearing your cache/cookies or using a different browser, if you are still having the same problem, please let us know. :)

Yes i did remove all cookies/cache. And now its the same with my wifes account. When trying to pay for gametime, look at payment history, same thing it redirects to the old loginsite, The one before the merge with battlenet. and when you ise it you get a white page with text about the authenticator, and then there is red text programming language. I need to get the game payed today if possible. Have raid tonight :). Will try on explorer, im using firefox as my net browser.
90 Blood Elf Death Knight
Same was with explorer, and i dont use that at all. So no cookies/cache, still same problem.
Also got the same thing on this account.

I am sorry to see that you are still having difficulties, please try changing your password and let us know if that helps. :)

Well i change the apssword on both accounts and and got to pay for gametime. No more stupid login error. Might it be an attempt of hijacking our accounts or something similar.
Customer Service
Could have been a cache issue or just simply that many players were all trying to log in at the same time. :)

Good to see it's sorted now though. ^^
