Having not played WoW in 2 years and coming back this being my first Tuesday I can honestly say this is one of the worst things about blizzard.
Why is it that Blizzard is the only developer that has this ridiculous amount of downtime?
SWTOR: 2-3 hours on patch day only. Only 5 min restarts weekly.
GW2: None, patches are applied with a client restart. Servers never go down
Rift: 1-2 hours on patches only. Server restarts weekly.
WoW: 5-8 hours every week.
Note to the mod that closed my last thread, this isn't to discuss this weeks extension. This is to discuss why Blizzards is so long compared to other industry standards.
