Patch 3.3.5: One Week Wait Between Regions: "With the testing of the upcoming patch 3.3.5 going smoothly on the PTR, Slorkuz has announced something pretty unprecedented on the official forums.
In order to make the smoothest implementation of the new Battle.net RealID system, patch 3.3.5 will be deployed first on North American realms followed with Europe, Korea, and Taiwan one week afterward!
In patch 3.3.5, we will be introducing our new Battle.net system, which opens up new communication options for World of Warcraft players and lays the groundwork for integration with future Blizzard games, such as StarCraft II. In order to ensure that the implementation of this major new system goes as smoothly as possible, we plan to release the patch to North American realms first, with Europe, Korea, and the region of Taiwan following approximately one week afterward.
