*Maintenance has now completed, get back to demon slaying!

Greetings all,

Its been a while but it's that time again!

On Tuesday(14/01/14) we will be having server maintenance. Which is expected to last 6 hours total, this is done to maintain the servers and do any general fixes etc that is needed.

Server down will start at 5:00am PDT which is:

Australia & New Zealand times/dates:

Tuesday 14/01/14

9:00pm - 3:00am Perth
10:30pm - 4:30am Darwin
11:00pm - 5:00am Brisbane
11:30pm - 5:30am Adelaide
12:00am - 6:00am Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra
2:00am - 8:00am New Zealand (Wednesday 15/01/14)

Additional time zones can be found here: http://everytimezone.com/

Note that this maintenance will go for 6 hours, till 11:00am PDT (Barring any unforeseen issues that may extend maint)

Also remember that blizzard does this while there is the least amount of connected players on the servers, while it is unfortunate that it falls in a good play time for us it has to be done.

Lets keep it civil and show that while downtime does indeed suck, we can still be a good community!

As a relatively new player, I do find this "downtime" a little frustrating, as it does seemingly impinge upon my right as someone who has bought the game, to play it whenever I choose. The fact that players now simply accept that fact and even make jokes about it now is something I have to get used to. :)

It may seem like a strange/naive question, but Is there a way to stagger this maintenance and offer players alternative servers to play on in the meantime?

Actually there is. i know some who plays on european or asian server when US is down. But yes, you will need to start fresh on those servers too.

Or, you can choose to play TL2 offline, which im doing now. :D
