Scheduled maintenance

Hello,

I would greatly appreciate it if you could run scheduled maintenance 2 hours earlier than it is currently run. I do not mean to be selfish by asking this. My mother taught me it never hurts to ask politely for something you want. I play in the morning before going to work and the current times make me miss a day - and I have crops to harvest!!

I really wish they would do away with maintenance altogether. Imagine if your cable company said we are turning of your cable for 8 hours every tuesday for maintenance, or your isp said we are turning off your internet every tuesday for 8 hours maybe more if we run into issues. What if you bank said we are turning off mobile banking every tuesday for 8 hours. I just think its a little silly, I mean really 6-8 hours weekly? I would seriously like an explanation of what they do on these days.

I personally virus scan all my computers, do housework, and update all my mods. Every tuesday since 2004 :D

You people seriously can't find anything else to do for eight hours?

I'd rather the weekly tune-up than have a bunch of bugs.

Pretty much every complaint I see in forums:

Hi, I'm _____, I can't figure out/I don't like/I feel _________, Blizzard should immediately fix my problem because they _____________, and obviously, my problem is the only problem in the world and it needs to be fixed NOW without regard to anyone else in the entire world!!!!!!!!!!

It is refreshing that you asked nicely instead of people just raging their demands. They do sometimes start maintenance earlier, but it usually scheduled to end at the same time. Sometimes they do go up earlier than expected.

Which is why your ISP doesn't have to shut down.

Blizzard is basically doing what you have been doing since 2004. Unfortunately, that requires shutdowns, reboots, etc., for their servers and implimenting updates. Just like you have to do for your computer.

Well that cuts even further into my play time so no.

Thanks for the polite request Morriz. Unfortunately, as much as we'd like to accommodate as many people as possible, it's not always feasible. Instead, we try to minimize the impact as much as possible and try to stay as consistent as possible as well in how and when we do maintenance.

May your crops be bountiful and the vermin stay away from them. :)

Dear Blizzard,
Could you (please) spend 500 million for back-up servers so we can play 24/7 with no maintenance? Thank you.

Edited for better manners.

First of all, I hate when Mods use the term "we" when speaking of blizzard and their own personal duties. Blizzard has never and will never see or hear any advice from you.

Secondly, I could care less about the downtime, but your statement "for blizzard" saying that "As much as we'd like to accommodate as many people as possible" is BS. IF that were true than Blizzard would be paying their programers overtime to begin maintenance around 2am. That would "accommodate" about 30% more players.

Like I said.. I have crap to do in the mornings anyways... I just hate BS responses.

If you hate BS responses - then why did you post yours? Take your own advice, champ.
