Never really made that connection, but I'll be quite happy to see the out-of-the-blue ping spikes go away.
Make Thaddius a soft 30minute reset eveytime you wipe on him and naxx lag issue fixed :D
Thank you! Yeah we were pretty quickly clued in that massive lag spikes coincided with Wintergrasp running. It was fun getting Grobbulous down during that, and we're *very* thankful we didn't get the lag spikes during Thaddius.
I... Never noticed anything...I suppose I should play more often...

I've never noticed anything and I'm on one of the most populated servers. Weird.
I never really drew that connection, but yeah, it would make sense that activity in Wintergrasp would affect the rest of Northrend. Being one contiguous world and all.It seems the issues never end - first Comcast and now this.
At least this helps to explain why the server I play on suddenly went from no queue to one of up to nearly 1K on busy evenings.Edit: Doh! No BBCode smileys!
I've just finished a Naxx heroic run, and i really, sincerely, hope that they'll fix this soon. We spent 1 hour wiping on Loatheb because nobody could get any heals off in the small amount of time available because of delays of up to 10 seconds. It's the exact same in Wintergrasp, everything goes fine until you reach the second wall. Then you just stand around throwing Holy Nova -.-EU - Frostmane
We kept dying on Thaddius on 1-2% for like six attempts, because people couldn't move.He changed polarities, and we're standing there going "What polarity do I have?" Then suddenly it changes, and half a second later the first charge hits. BAM. half the raid dead.
The only difference between this change and the current way, it will be less a pain to on pvp servers where you would get killed in middle of a node mining.
Good thing wowhead reads the comments. I said "I hope you know that your main page currently says "We haz a blag" and links to your blog" and now it says "Can you say blog?" And here's a little something to torture all of you even worse than being rick rolled: Musta been a typo a typo a typo, musta been a typo it cant be for real!
Finally, they're fixing this! I was getting ready to kill my internet supplier because every Wintergrasp battle I did I would get d/ced at the 2nd wall, only way to come back on was to wait for someone to kill your character! -,-Not to mention getting disconnected at a crucial "Burn it Down" point of a boss fight or "Don't just stand there, you're in a Void Zone!" *dies*
& all that time, i thought it was my room-mates taking up bandwidth via downloading @#$%!
Translated into what Blizzard would say if you knew Blizzard personally: We know! WE KNOW! For the love of Azeroth stop sending us so many freaking tickets! WE KNOW, DAMMIT! We're working on it round the clock and we're already getting whipped for it, we're sorry! But WE KNOW! *in a frantic teary eyed voice*
Wintergrasp Lag...What, me worry?But Naxxramas on the other hand is a total diffrent ball game.I stopped doing heroics cuz i have tier 7.5 and dont need the badges/not really fussed if i get the mammoth. But when it takes half a second to see what ur charge is on thaddius and you realise ur on the wrong side and die before u cn do anything about it that really &*!@es me off.Btw LOL @ the 'we hace a blag' i thought that was intentional until i cecked the heading and it said 'Blog' and then i started to wonder whether someone had done it at some ridiculous hour about to pass out on their keyboard from sleep deprivation :p

Actually, I was farming Strath last night, and lagged for about 20 seconds. the undead broke my ice barrier and left me with 1000 hp left lol. (My computer has NEVER lagged before except when the server is lagging), so it's NOT just northrend/naxx. It's oldworld too.PS: When I say Strath, I mean old lv 60 stratholme :)
I think I stand for everyone here when I say...FRIGGIN' FINALLY!
Maybe they'll go ahead and implement it with todays "unexpected restarts"...
