This is a post for all people who will come here to cry about it.Do you pay well for a special club membership or such? WoW is much like that. Blizzard takes our money when we know that we will suffer through a half-day long maintenance almost every Tuesday. It is part of how they keep the servers working properly and if they did not, I hope you enjoy downtime almost every day for minor repairs, rather than downtime every week to fix them all.
I understand why it is less feasible, but I WOULD rather have an hour of downtime every day than a whole block one morning (and afternoon, and sometimes night). But I do think it's ridiculous to get huffy when the regularly scheduled maintenance happens when you should be expecting it to.Update 1pm Pacific Time: A dozen or so servers are up.
Server is back up slowly..Cheer!
You'd think they'd schedule these things (server maintenance) when people aren't playing...like around noon on Saturdays...amirite?
Keep in mind they're also rolling out Arena Season 5 today.Give them a break :P
Nice picture, Casey.
So for those of you who are saying the servers are slowly coming back up, do you play on the european ones or what? I look at the realm status page and all i see is red all the way down to the end of the page. This being said at 3:40PM, EST :p
you do each time zone at the tomes when people really shouldnt be playing.. like 3am to whenever. not during the times when people are likely to be playing.. like 10 am to whenever.
There's probably more people playing at 3am than at 10am on a weekday... (Many people have work or school during the day but still stay up half the night to play...)
Yep. ^^ Some of us are also at a point where we don't work or go to school, for whatever reason irrelevant. So relaxing to play at night time as well :D
I got up at 5:30 AM to play WoW, and there was an 8 hour maintenance... how stupid <_<
