They supposedly have some of the best programmers in the field on their programming team, yet they can't update a patch in the time they allotted? Jesus, I'm so BORED... I need my WoW... NOW!!! They already extended the time from the original 11 am PST, to 1 pm PST, and now it's fucking 2 pm PST!!!!! When is it going to end?!?!?!? COME ON BLIZZARD, DO YOUR JOBS!!! Stop taking donut breaks and hanging around the water cooler, there are people who PAY MONTHLY to play your game, GET IT RUNNING for god's sake.
And...ehh...Why do you post this here? None of us in the Network/Forum Team works for Blizzard, so we can't help you here, if you want to rant about how they add patches go to the Official World of Warcraft Forums instead..Maybe they can answer you better
pwnage nab XD
I agree with Phoenix. I stopped playing shortly after the 2.1 patch, but the amount of overtime they took for patching both the 2.0 and 2.1 patches was ridiculous, it extended for five or six hours, I think, and even for minor patches the maintenance was often delayed. We pay good money for this service, Blizzard could at least announce realistic downtime durations, if they need it, just randomly announcing you need more time pretty much every second or third tuesday is not really good enough.
Because 6 hours every 2 months you can't play it is life changing, right?
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

Pretty sad isn't it? The Original Post is just an example of the control this game wraps around people. The game isn't your life. And never will be. So what if you pay Blizzard, it is their product to do what they will, and if they take longer trying to fix something for your benefit.
Too dam bad.
At least World of Warcraft gets updated. Us Warcraft 3ers don't even get a measly patch every once in awhile.
