Did you experience some issues with upgrading Season 4 gear, scoring no rating after participating in Mythic+ dungeons, or maybe not seeing any Awakened raids available yesterday, even though there was plenty of time until Season 4 is over?

Rest assured, you were definitely not alone, as many players were complaining about having the same problems as the game thought that Season 4 was over.

What caused Dragonflight Season 4 gear upgrade bug?

Unfortunately, the exact cause of these pesky problems on live servers is still unknown, but we have some speculations that may answer your questions! The first plausible one is that this kind of trouble is related to the recent WoW Remix Mists of Pandaria updates and buffs. WoW Remix and WoW Seasons may be in the same category or bucket, and there is some heavy overlap, which can cause errors when developers replace and remove irrelevant data.

Nevertheless, the community prefers another funny reason, humorously suggesting that Blizzard’s hiring of an inexperienced intern may have resulted in them messing up the game. You know, we have all been there goofing up on our first day at a new workplace.

Blizzard’s reaction

As of now, Blizzard has made some fixes, so everything is back to normal, and you can enjoy the game again. Still, we sincerely hope that these technical problems did not spoil your mood and that you quickly found an alternative in the form of, for instance, WoW MoP Remix or Cataclysm Classic that you could spend a few hours in.
