IPv6 connection issues

Technical Support
Hi!

I am attempting to connect using IPv6, but for some reason it doesn't seem to work. I do see that the SYN packets are going out - but no answer (SYN+ACK) is returned.

IPv6 is working correctly with all other web pages and tests I have been able to find.

Here is the output of a path ping:

C:\>pathping 2a04:e800:0:100:f6ce:46ff:fe8a:146c

Trace complete.
It might help if you mention your ISP's name.
Why would mentioning the ISP name help? The trace clearly shows the traffic getting to telia which is the ISP used by Blizzard. This issue is simple and I have the same issue...

Blizzard have been lazy and used SLAAC assigned (MAC based) IPv6 addresses for servers, and presumably they have later changed Ethernet card or put on new hardware, so the IPv6 has changed and they have simply not bothered to update server lists or DNS or whatever they use to find the address.

At least Thunderhorn is not working and some other realms are not. Some do work. I have exactly the same and raised a ticket that has been marked "resolved" (a lie) as it is not fixed.

Next step, publicity and news about Blizzard apparently dropping IPv6 support.
