hmm hoping its true, lowkey doubting 8pm sounds more like it.....
Always curious as to why they don't give an extra day of game time when they do server maintenance for this long...Edit: I'm not someone who can play everyday, nor am I asking for monetary compensation. Understanding that Tuesday is maintenance day, I believe that if you have an extended maintenance - which in this case is currently 8 hours - you should be able to add that time back to people's subscriptions. Not sure why I'm getting all this hate / being told I'm entitled. You must not like playing the game if you are against having more game time due to extended maintenance.
WoWHead, please, include the conversions for the European time on such posts. Not saying it's hard to do ourselves through Google, but it'd definitely be great to just open an article and get the answer right away. Thanks!
According to the Battle.net app the maintenance for Europe is between 6am CEST and 2pm CEST.
My life will be meaningless for those 7 hours :P
I totally can't understand why people are getting upset at the guy asking about game time reimbursement because it actually used to be a thing they did up until 2008 or 2009. Pretty recently, they changed the Account History section at battle.net to not show transactions prior to 2015 (and, if you're trying to verify, for transactions before that you now have to "Request a Copy of Your Data" which opens a ticket that can take up to a month to resolve), but I know for a fact that for long "unplanned" maintenances they would add a day of game time to the end of the subscription. These patch downtimes aren't unplanned obviously, but imo someone asking for a day to be tacked on for just long maintenance isn't some out-of-the-blue nutty begging to me. (Plus, just a quick note, they still don't add time for unplanned maintenances anymore, and instead they sometimes retroactively call maintenance after server issues planned so it's a totally different can of worms now than it was then.)Personally, I don't mind it or even want reimbursement to happen (because the non-reimbursement is just normal for subscription services now even when entire services crash for long periods), but getting all up-in-arms and going after the guy up top for being entitled is insanity, knowing that it used to be somewhat commonplace.
