1 day is not a problem, so i dont really care. Would've been different if the server would be down for like a week or something.
Yes, we do!
In such cases where the customer is due compensation it is normal practice for the company that customer has the contract with to pay the compensation to the customer and then seek compensation from the party whose fault it is. So, essentially Blizzard would not pay for the downtime.
I hope this clears it up for you.

Nope. Get used to it. Why have a thread on MMO-champion? Is it so you can bitch about this? Go outside or something..
I gladly take a day of compensation, but I won't huff and puff if I don't get it...

What would a day of compensation actually do for you? Make you feel better?
No you don't.
If you think you 'deserve' compensation for less than 24 hours of being able to play a video game you are going to have serious problems with the rest of your life; you may want to start adjusting now.
I don't know the recipe for success, but I know that the recipe for failure is trying to please everyone.

Or, to put it another way, you and some friends are supposed to see a movie. You live on an island, where there is a bridge to the mainland. For some reason, the bridge is closed, and you cannot get to the mainland to watch the movie. The movie theater doesn't owe you a free showing because you couldn't get to the theater.
Contract or not, WoW was up and running. Blizzard is under no obligation to compensate you for someone else's failure.
Or, to put it yet ANOTHER way - you want to play WoW, but your power is out. It does not come back on for a day. Does Blizzard owe you compensation because you had no electricity? Of course not.
I hope this clears it up for you.
And i don't give a damn if i get a free day or not. I play WoW a lot (some could say too much), but this really doesn't bother me at all. For all i care it could've gone down for another 24 hours and i would be just fine.
There are just so many people that care so much for their €0,50 that it's getting quite sad. Surely people have better things to do aswell.
Back in Vanilla/TBC blizzard did this kind of thing all the time. Nowadays they have owners expecting revenue behind them, and I would say it's unlikely, even though it would be grand of them to do it.
Announce Interrupts: Announces in chat when you interrupt a spell.
Tol Barad Reminder: Reminds you to queue for Tol Barad by printing a message when the battle is approaching.
EasyLogger: Turns on /combatlog inside raid instances, and off outside.

Whilst Blizzard's ISP was at fault today, we have no contract with Blizzard's ISP as such we have recourse with them. As our contract exists with Blizzard we (although I would say that the outage today is by no means long enough) are entitled to ask them to refund us for the time we have paid for their service but not received it. Blizzard is then entitled to claim compensation from its ISP for the outage. This is standard business practice.
I won't go into your island cinema situation because even for these boards it is quite ridiculous. If the electricity is out at my house then I am not entitled to compensation from Blizzard although the electricity supplier is legally obligated to compensate me once the power has been out for a certain time. However if the power is out at Blizzard's end and I cannot access the game then it for Blizzard to refund my lost game time and then claim this back from the power company.
These are the people I fear for when the plug eventually gets pulled on WoW. If you can't think of anything else to do on a Saturday then you have some serious issues.
