If Blizzard is smart, they would. For their problems are affecting what little player base they have left.

>9.1 million subscribers.
>Little player base.
No. Please God no. NO!

Some of you are are pissing and moaning about this have been offline for a maximum of 2.5 hours/150 minutes. So if you are demanding reimbursement/credit for your lost time give me your addresses and I will rightfully pay you all the $0.05 cents they shorted you.


Really? Ok, well since WoW has at least 9 million subscribers and since you will be “rightfully” paying everyone there $o.o5 cents that means you now owe at least four hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Better go get that check book big shot!

Only he would only be paying back the tiny fraction of dumbasses who think they're entitled to things they aren't.
I don't think a reimbursement is in order, however it would be a nice gesture if Blizzard would take the incentive to compromise with those who did set aside certain times for the game just for it to be unavailable. I think it would be nice give a "rested" type experience bonus (or drop rate bonus or something) for those who are affected by unexpected down time during "peak playing hours" such as weekends and evenings. That will help players make up the time they felt they missed out on for leveling, and it is no cost to Blizzard.

Typical WoW fanbase, doesn't read the rules, and they think they own the joint.
So how much of a reimbursement are you expecting? Your full 15$ back? & you can't compare this to a restaurant, when in fact, you do have to pay full price unless they offer you otherwise. You can demand the manager to have a cut on your bill, but they are not obligated to do so.
