I could see that happening....all the devs....that just got done making the content and playing it constantly on PTR and just for fun....playing it for hrs and hrs after they get done patching, causing the servers to be on insta-DC for everyone else....Makes perfect sense to me. And sorry....I only got this big hammer that I can smash upon your cranium to help you.
Well, the way I imagine it as a metaphor is that when we copy PTR chars is like pushing a playdoh 3.2 shape into a 3.3 shaped hole. You can easily squeeze the stuff one at a time through the hole, with no big effort.Patching the live server you then squeeze THOUSANDS of those playdoh shapes into those infitting holes. Even worst, you're not pushing the shapes into the unfitting holes, but pushing the surface with hole on the playdoh shapes. Some mess will appear on that, as I suspect the tables that hold character info are a mess right now, hence the disconnection when the game is supposed to show you char list.
