    Extended wait for my paid play time.

    I for one am so tired of waiting hours after hours each week for the servers to be back up and not being reimbursed by it.
    I pay for this game to play this game. Why can't blizzard start resets in each time zone accordingly? I would love to be able to play for a greater portion of the day on a tuesday and less on a monday night...Start the resets early and start maintenance then..So when people wake up and have a bit of time before work they can get a few things done? I Know im not the only person who feels this way, im wondering why blizzard has yet to implement it.

    Please keep this kind of stuff on World of Warcraft forums.

    Because technicians who apply patches to servers want to get some sleep at night? You said that you want to play in the morning. Obviously they want to work in the morning, not during night.
    As of blizzard, you pay fixed amount of money anyway, and paying technicians for night work will seriously increase their expenses.

    You never paid for 24/7 access, sorry if you thought you did. Next time, read the disclosures you agree to with more care and you wont be so disappointed.

    You pay a fee for access for 30 days to the game while it's up. Maintenance is a necessary part of any online system and some downtime is expected.

    I don't mind the maintenances in the middle of the day but when they get the times wrong week after week, that's aggravating...get the times right or reimburse, it's called good customer service..I don't think anywhere in the terms of use they said we'd get the times wrong every single week after MoP released.

    Back in my day, we killed bosses 400 times a day...uphill both ways...in the snow...and we fucking liked it. In related news, I hear that uninstalling WoW completely from your hard drive and then reinstalling it resets your RNG numbers. -septor

    It's Patch Day. What did you expect? They have to make sure all their unipixiecorns are shooting rainbows out of their butts at the proper angles.
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    For every person inconvenienced by this Tuesday time there is likely an equal or greater number inconvenienced by any other time. They have to do it sometime, and all together, so why not now?

    About refunding money for your time...well I guess they could always refund .5/31 (content patches never last more than 12 hours) of your monthly payment for months where a major content update is pushed...but that sounds kind of silly.

    I take it you didn't read the terms you signed after you paid for the game?

    You should seriously consider an alternative hobby, just so your soul isn't so depraved when the servers are under maintenance lol

    In the terms of use and end user license agreement you clearly just agreed to without reading.

    I for one am so tired of people who, 7 years later, still havn't figured out it is necessary and isn't going to change.

    Where does anything, besides your opinion, claim you do pay for 24/7?

    The TOS I'm sure. I haven't read the darn thing but with how mad you're getting clearly you must have perused that bad boy from front to back.

    I'm sure there is a passage in there detailing the needs for maintenance and subsequent downtime. And even if there wasn't, I'm sure you'll get over it, lil guy.

    Do you REALLY honestly think any MMO has a 24/7/365 uptime ? REALLY ?

    If you do...I got news for you.

    No MMO has. No MMO ever had. No MMO ever will.

    Its software. Software run on hardware. Software fails sometimes. Hardware fails sometimes. Get used to it
