Blizzard constantly and repeatedly fails at this, week after week, and because it's just a videogame they aren't held accountable for it.No, actually, they really only go over a huge amount when they're doing massive reworks to entire battlegroups, like the recent 24-hour maintenance windows or deploying large patches.And unless I'm mistaken, those were done to move entire battlegroups from one data center to one in a different physical location.The fact that they were up and stable in 36 hours, even, is a god damn impressive feat.
I refuse to log in to the game in this time period. If I must, I refuse to enter Trade chat. Or General chat. Or Guild chat. Actually, I am not logging in, screw that.dude ,, you need to get a life , if your that mad over a maintenance ,,, go outside , get some fresh air ,.....dont worry it will be ok XDwhooooooooooooosh

How come you are not eating hotpockets and soda while showering, shaving and doing laundry? Is there ever a time when not eating hotpockets and soda is an option?Only when you are purchasing more of them.
Admit it. You guys just wanted a night off to eat Jello and play Scrabble.
Admit it. You guys just wanted a night off to eat Jello and play Scrabble.I'm waiting for a Tech to comment and say "Busted".
What am I supposed to do at work? :pSounds good. I hope that all the potential issues can be resolved without too many headaches for you guys. :)
will not go on thottbot..will not go on thottbot..will not go on thottbot..
We're hoping the maintenance will only take 2 hours, but we're building in an extra hour for all that fun stuff that happens when people mess with servers that no one ever quite anticipates will occur.Christ, I wish the WoW community would remember the existence of that "fun stuff".As someone who has worked in higher-end data centers before, maintenance is rarely, if ever, a simple thing, and all the armchair technicians who rabble on about "OMG THE SERVERS SHOULD HAVE BEEN UP ALREADY WTF BLIZZZZZZZZZZ" make me want to stab something....sorry, pet peeve.QFT. Very well said :)
Well, I don't know when the servers came back up, but everything seems to be running really smoothly today.Good job wowhead.Cheers.
