    I Really don't get how they have done the same on US AND EU realms.. i mean .. if i remember correctly there was a similar maintenance for the US servers am i right? so weren't they expecting something similar here? and if they did .. couldn't they say that the maintenance would take longer from the start?.........

    Not just any charity...


    Personally, I have an issue with a leader of a major NFP making $200,000+ a year. However, they still have a decent overall score, just their efficiency rating is much lower than it should be.

    Blizzard should start to plan their maintenances a little better though. I mean, they seriously expected to use half the time it took for the US to get the servers up? Sheesh.
    It's a norm that Blizzard screws up every single time there's a patch. Even for small patches. And when a large one hits there will always be atleast a few thousand players who can't log in for several days. It's been like that for years now and makes me wonder why on earth can't they learn from their mistakes?

    There is absolutely no comparison to donating to charity (regardless of the charity) and pay to play politics which is bankrupting the moral fiber of this country.

    Because all those people already finished ICC, right? They don't need Halion to keep playing. But all those guilds that already farmed ICC 30-50 times really need a challenge to keep playing for months.

    We're on 16.5 hours now (servers went down at midnight) and maintenance extended to 18:00. It's obvious they'll never learn from past mistakes

    Technically, there are many possible "world firsts", depending on the conditions. Practically, the conditions of this "world first" are just pointless. There is no competitive world first for this boss.

    Here is some evidence for you...

    The vast majority of guilds can't field 25 players any longer on the vast majority of servers. Blizzard realized this hence why they shifted to 10 man raiding in the expansion.


    40 man > 25 man > 10 man

    Each and every time the raid population has reduced it has corresponded with a drop in population. When is the last time you saw Blizzard add a new realm because of population? They can't even keep the realms they currently have full.
