Nov 12. Server Maintenance/Issues
Return to board index
This is a simple profit issue. Until problems like these cause people to cancel their subscriptions in sufficient numbers that the lost business exceed the cost of upgrading and maintaining the ungraded systems, this will continue.
I can agree with you there. I think they are sinking their profits into other things. I'm curious what companies run or are run by blizzard.
I also agree with you on the mail issue. The structure could very easily have been increased to prevent that 4 or 5 years ago, unless this is a bug that recorded on all the redundancies inherantly. Remember, the game is making this data and recording it. A phone company is recieving the information and moving it. There is very limited creation involved, and that would be a sub structure of the network that's creating any data, not the IT department keeping this up.
You are skipping a step in this process. If I email someone, it goes thru hotmail, then to the servers from hotmail, and to whoever I am sending it to's mail service provider. Blizz is taking your data(or data created in game) and moving it to a created place on the same structure. It doesn't go anywhere. It's more of a copy/paste function of data created by the game.
Again, we aren't talking the same language. You are talking about a maintenance company, while blizz is a developer. Also, phone company servers move data, they don't create and record nearly as much data as WoW does(scale wise). That's like comparing a switch board to a computer and wondering why the computer has more issues.
IMO, they should have a descent IT company running their servers tho to prevent things like this and keep the speed of their other servers up to par with the game speed(battle ground, instance, and raid servers should never lag IMO).
I wasn't trying to sound too harsh, but I guess I did. =/ Meh.
i still got my free pvp item :)
Woot! Go you! Is it brutal or just merciless? I wonder why people think getting brutal items is a huge deal seeing you can't even equip them without the proper team rating.
Brutal off hand axe, and I can use it, doesn't have a rating req.
