instead I've taken a day off work that is lost real money due to Blizzard's lack of foresight and planning.
How are we going to be reimbursed for our time Blizzard? Are you going to pay back a days salary?
I'd start with a call to the cops to tell them a employ from Blizzard held a gun to your head to make you take time of work to play there game.
You have to be f***ing joking to ask Blizzard to pay you for you for taking the day off to play a game.
