I have absolutely no problem with scheduled maintenance even though being in Europe and playing on US servers I do "lose" the entire day on Tuesday. But thankfully there is plenty in RL to keep me busy so no complaints from me.On the other hand what I do have a problem with is constant rolling restarts. They fall exactly on my guild's raid times and we routinely end up losing 30-45 minutes worth of raid time a couple days a week to these. Maybe once in a while they could take turns doing the restarts when it's the American guilds that are raiding. :P
Blizz staff have stated the new MMO they're doing is on a distributed DB. This would indicate one of a few things that could happen if applied to WoW:1) No more concept of 'battlegroup', it could be truly global (ie, no more taking down of my realm because an associated realm is broken)2) No more EU/US/KR/TW account distinctions3) No more maintenance downtime for hardware fixing4) Restarts for DB cleanupsI'd find it hard to believe that they'd do all this for whatever 'new IP' MMO they're coming out with, which may (or may not) 'use the WoW engine' yet not move this stuff over to WoW as well. Yes, my $ is still on 'Warcraft Universes' where they've been re-writing WoW Classic and BC using WotLK engine. The additional engineering and staffing required due to an inability to perform 1-4 above must be a right pain.So yes, there's a reason to &*!@# and complain. This is more or less the second decade of the 21st century. Not the last decade of the 20th. Time for the back end of WoW to catch up. And each month that goes by is even more reason to have a dang good !@#$% about it.
I do not like the complaining.It is only natural though...I personally do not participate and just do something else..like read or post on Wowhead.
those complaints are due to nolifing for a too long period of time...i should know i did it.people micking me still does :)
The whole Oceanic goes down during peak time. I don't think that counts as little people.
Laihendi was expecting this thread to be about wowhead maintenance. Wait, this isn't randomness...
