About servers on September 25th...
Judging by the horrible bugfest that is patch 5.0.4 & 5.0.5 you'll be lucky to play on Wednesday.
They have already said the intention is a seamless release, you won't even have to logout. Come midnight a new quest will appear and off you'll trot to pandaland.
Of course, if the servers are down, it will probably be for other reasons like over-population.
* Rolling restarts throughout the first week
* Over population causing lag issues and possibly the occasional world server crashing.
* Hot fixes throughout the week as they correct problems with the expansion and many small patches
These are common with the release of any new expansion and are annoying, however as it has been stated, they will not be taking the servers down nor will they crash and be down for days. I've been here since Vanilla. We'll have plenty of issues, but nothing that will prevent you from playing the game.
