    Extended Maintenance - 7 -11-2012

    Sorry everyone, due to an issue we're having in resolving the maintenance, we're extending the period of downtime.

    The current scheduled end to the maintenance is now 13:00 CET
    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...6078?page=2#26

    Well well so we still have nearly 2 hours.

    NEW:

    Unfortunately, we need to extend the #maint for an additional 2 hours while we perform some intensive server testing. New ETA = 15:00 CET.

    Incoming people demanding free game time because of this.
    Hint: You won't get it.

    Also, time to go do something else!

    I'm not demanding free game time cus of this but I do wish they would let us know earlier. If it was really a "scheduled maintenance" as they say, they should've knew about this.

    Doesn't affect me at all, as I'm at work until 17:00 CET anyway so. Really doesn't people have anything better to do than to play WoW during the morning? And for everyone that has played for more than a year, knows that there's maintenance on Wednesdays (EU) and Tuesdays (US), and that sometimes they need more time, and sometimes they need less time.

    Well, some people work from their home and have nothing better to do than play WoW, besides Galleon spawns after the reset...atleast so I have heard. Yeah, people know there's maintenance on Wednesday, but no one is expecting a maintenance until 13:00.As I said earlier, if this was really a scheduled maintenance then they knew about the change and should have told us earlier.

    The only thing "better" I might have to do is go swim in my swimming pool or get drunk...

    Well tbh, this hasn't happened in a long time and over the years Blizzard have done great stuff to minimize this kind of stuff and succeeded. Nevertheless, I want to comment your remark since it shows how limited your knowledge is regarding maintenance on managed environments. Be it an ICT environemnt or a factory environment...

    You can't always be sure how long maintenance will take. If all goes well, then normally the service is up and running again at the designated time. Sometimes you get lucky and it's actually ahead of schedule. But also sometimes you encounter stuff during maintenance that needs to be fixed/addressed/corrected or whatever. SOmetimes it's expected/calculated sometimes not. It's impossible to always predict it right.
    SO they could not have told us earlier, most likely. ANd how would you have bitched at them isf they said the servers would be up at 13:00 around 8:00??? Only to find that it was not that big a problem and servers were up at 10:00 again and you missed Galleon? EVen during regular maintenance it has occurred often that there was mention of 11:00 time on the login page and that the servers were actually up sinced early that morning.
    So what?

    Be a big boy...

    It's one of those situations again where Blizzard can't really win.

    Why not make a poolparty for MMO-C people? That would be awesome, and we'd forget about this stupid maintenance ^^

    So I just set out on an unholy inquisition to hunt down that fat spider which dared interrupting my night time anime session yesterday and managed to slip away somehow. Fourty minutes into my crusade, I've successfully reassembled every available piece of furniture into a pile of junk, electrocuted myself several times with the electric fly swatter, broke a few vases, for some reason I'm not entirely sure what the lane is on fire, I'm full of tranquilizers and hulled into bandages right now, there might be something broken, ah and I think the neighbours have already called the cops.

    BTW, it got away again. GJ Blizzard...

    It's funny how Blizzard bent over back in vanilla and gave us free gametime when ever they kept us out of the game.
