In response to Blizzard’s official tweet announcing that Chains of Domination had finally been released, angry fans have taken to the comments after experiencing in-game issues.

“The S**T LAG once again,” writes one irritated player. “You get to stage nine, then disconnected to start all over again. Then you make it to stage two then disconnected to start all over again.”

Another fan encountered a similar issue, noting that “I got to stage eight and then got disconnected and when I reconnected with my character I’m back at Oribos with all my progress gone!”

A final commenter praised the game’s changes, but notes that “the only thing I faced was massive lag in the Ardenweald scenario.”

While the vast majority of players seem to be unaffected, this is a disappointing start for many considering how highly anticipated the expansion has been. Hopefully Blizzard implement a fix sooner rather than later so that we can enjoy the next chapter of the Shadowlands saga.
