Two weeks in a row with just rolling restarts

General Discussion
Hope people remember this next time Blizzards faces some issues that extend it. It seems people to soon forget the many times where it's a simple restart.
They won't.
How quick people often forget weeks in a row of just rolling restarts. I have played many games MMOs since Original EQ beta days and and rolling restarts were never a thing each week.

I could tell you of walking uphill 10 miles in the snow, barefoot just to be able to play only to find out the last crash/restart resulted in some form of a roll back. OR tell of days when a game would be unavailable without any info on why or when it would be back up and paying a higher monthly subscription with no reimbursement at all ( reimbursement was never on the table as an option)

I could keep going.

Haha, the unfortunate truth. One bad extended downtime and all of sudden the "10 years and still constant server issues" crowd will be back.
