    8 Hour Maintenance? How, Why?

    8 hours seems a bit excessive to implement a 15 year old patch with a bit of new code.

    Yep and we get no compensation in any way, they should halt the timer on our accounts when they do shit like this. If less people put up with it they would compensate more.

    - let's get real everyone, classic needs #somechanges get over it.

    its not just classic, remember its part of the bnet network, which today is hearthstone expansion along with battlegrounds release, so its likely to do with network maintenance more then game maintenance

    lol people have put up with it for 15 years, so nothing gunna change, you accept your sub time is compromised by matinences and downages, if they are too bad blizz will refund, but nah 8 hour matinence for a vanilla patch was the norm.


    your paying for a sub for wow, you arnt unable to play wow, just wow classic, go play wow for now.

    Did you not play in vanilla? 6-8 maintenance windows were quite common, and were often longer during patch days.

    Either way, you'll live.

    Another fine example of living up to the 'entitled gamer' stereotype.

    Maintenance began fridays at 9am and was mostly scheduled until 1pm. Sometimes servers were on at like 4pm and it always lagged a couple hours even into saturday.

    Blizzard would have to sabotage themselves to recreate the vanilla experience.

    Everyone should get 50g, a free 60 boost and 15 days game time!
    Unacceptable!
    The people deserve it!

    Shame I was hyped up to spend all afternoon trying to find a Gnomer group.

    Ah well not like anyone would be running dungeons today anyway.

    This is why they need to have multiple ways to buy time, time that is only used while you are playing or unlimited for a much larger fee. I would be completely fine buying 12 hours for a few bucks at a time if they only ticked down while playing for example. That is the true way to give people freedom.

    Not really, don't charge 20 a month if they are going to pull BS like this with no compensation. Yes I know it has "been going on forever" that does not make it a sound and ethical business practice.

    You paid for a WoW sub, WoW is still online and playable, only Classic is down for a while. So really, they don't owe you anything. Unless you'd prefer they split the subs, so you have to pay for both WoW and Classic if you want to play both...

    Ya, 10$ per sounds plenty fair since they make so vastly much more from subs than they need, like in 1 month their costs for the year are completely covered for both development and server maintenance.

    Certainly not looking for compensation.

    That makes sense I guess. Thank you.

    Yeah, quite common 15 years ago, and no I think I'm dying.
