Connected Realm

So I have toons on Medivh/Exodar and Alleria/Khadagr relams. I was looking forward to this merger. I was very lucky. I had characters on the latter for several years now and was happy to see this connection . However last night I was on Alleria and it seemed Khadgar was having issues. Peoples characters where being wiped or reset to level 85 with the gear they had back in MOP. Blue post stats that our merger is once again on hold due to technical difficulties . No date has been provided for merger. Looks like Blizz needs to fix the glitch before we are connected. I am also wonder how realm time will work. Medivh/Exodar are EST , Alleria/Khadgar are CST . May cause some confusion moving forward for raids.
