    ...are you fucking kidding me? I mean they can maintain a lot of server problems at home and if its a psychical issue its a non issue to send 1 or 2 techs to fix it.

    Keeping a game server up is honestly the least affected by a virus..well period in fact its in blizzards and the country's BENEFIT to keep them up as it gives people who can't go out anymore something to do.

    OP should elaborate more but i believe he means with the COVID-19 outbreak, if it will affect servers


    "... And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers, and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee." - Ezekiel 25:17

    Because servers are in rooms, and if people that work in those rooms find out they have coronavirus, they will close those rooms to clean them.

    I'm just pointing out a few things most server rooms aren't manned in general. The only reason I could see them going down would be to a power outage or some other unrelated issue.

    There must be a few people at corporate headquarters, although I'm sure they're affected by California's shelter-in-place order.

    Thats not how data centers work nearly everything can be remotely done only physical hardware issues need people which you seem to think require a large amount of people when it they only take 1 or 2 people data centers do not require people generally.

    Not meaningless declarations easy to say after he regrets offering up evidence he’s a racist.

    Why isn't "who cares" an option? It's only WoW Classic, nothing actually important.
    VOTING IS MOB RULE AND MOB RULE IS MEDIA RULE AND

    If you think WoW is going to survive on the bad retail design that keeps bleeding players, good luck.
