Diablo® III

Server Maintenance

I hadn't really thought of this until now, maybe its been asked before, but seeing as Diablo 3 is going to be DRM, and basing my question off of Warcraft's history, what is Blizzards intentions as far as server maintenance goes? Can we expect the same kind of maint. that Warcraft gets or is going to be on an as needed basis?

I'd like to know as well. You would think after all these years they would have some sort of redundancy in place where the entire server population wouldn't need to go down for maintenance.

I could see them releasing the game on a Tuesday and everyone logging in for the first time to see "Server down for maintenance".
Yeah, i just imagined it being that with the kind of traffic WoW gets, that even with half the people, there will be millions of item id's that the servers are going to need to go down monthly to facilitate a maint.
