Personally, I am still waiting on that magical Tuesday where maintenance happens and NO ONE COMPLAINS.
Come on, people. Do something else with your time, it's not that hard.

Anyhow, I appreciate the heads up, Daxxarri. <3

Maintenance could be 20 minutes and give all your characters a free pony and people will still complain that they wanted a moose and not a pony.

but I want a pony :(

Just shut up and let them do their work.

brown nose much?
Give the guys at blizz a break, they only had a week to get ready for this.

Maybe they are adding some cool new dailies or something

It has become necessary to extend today’s regularly scheduled maintenance by approximately two hours. We currently anticipate that realms will become available at 1:00 p.m. PST, though we will revise that estimate if the situation changes. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.

Why Dad?

why don't you ask your own dad that question?

I understand that this may have been impossible to predict, but I would like to voice my opinion on the issue of extended maintenance (especially because it's highly inconvenient for us EST players). I would much rather be told that the original maintenance would end at 1pm EST and then be informed that maintenance ended early, as opposed to having the maintenance continuously extended.

No this isn't impossible to predict. If you're looking at the clock and it's 10 AM and you know you're not going to be done in an hour, tell your customers right then. It's really that simple.
>Complains that you can't log in for another 2 hours
>Complains when you're in-game that there's nothing to do but dailies.

Hahaha, oh wow.

But they have a couple of years under their belt to make maintenance like these smoother and precised.

I for one would rather have longer maintenance + new content + fewer bugs than shorter maintenance + no new content + more bugs.
Dear Blizz,
Please make sure you reimburse the whiners their entire .04 cents for the extra two hours of maintenance today. Although you have been doing maintenance on Tuesdays for years now with us knowing there is a chance it'll be extended, some players still feel compelled to come to the forums and cry about losing game time. Unfortunately, some players just don't have anything else to do with their time, so the six normal hours of maintenance already kills them. What were you thinking when you decided to add two hours to it?
I mean honestly it shouldn't happen with the downtime like it is but it does happen nothing you can do but don't bite their heads off. I mean look at it like this to dumb it down a bit take a strand of of 100 lights being servers and say one of then gets a glitch and goes down well when that happens you have to figure out which one which one just cause them all to go down and why. So unless u guys are programmers or computer specialist you need to shut up u have no clue what they go thru trying to keep this game running day to day including all the labor cuts they did cuz no money haha
Whoa! For a minute there I started hearing through my computer's speakers and all my computer's sound was coming out of my ears!

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but it would probably be helpful if you update the extended maintenence message on the login page in-game. It still says 1 p.m. PST. Most people don't go running to the forums for information when it is (incorrectly) provided on the login screen.
How do other MMOs manage to do maintenance without any obvious down time? In my experience WOW is the only one that shuts everything down for hours at a time.

They also have frequent rolling restarts.

If they are so intense about fixing things, then why are the Celestial Steed's wings still broken? There are hundreds of bugs they have never fixed, and often they create as many as they do fix.

Maybe it is the best they can do, but it still sucks.

2 weeks in a row having to extend it, sigh... come on guys

Nah, not two weeks in a row. EVERY maintenance done so far in MOP has been extended. the like 1 or 2 15 minute resets didn't get extended although they were a lot longer than 15 minutes either way. Completely expect every time bliz says there will be maintenance it will be extended. I truly mean that. 100% it will always be extended. I don't know how i know this and they don't but they will keep saying 11am every week all the same for some reason.
8 years in and people still try to play on Tuesdays. I lul'd.
Do it in what is, to me, the middle of the night, and it wouldn't be a problem. Because no other timezones matter.

If this keeps happening every week, it's about time Blizzard starts refunding lost game-time.

So here's another 2 hours added on top of last weeks. When are we going to start seeing reimbursements for paying not to play every Tuesday (and sometimes other days)

Post your banking information and I'll personally send you the 25 cents you just lost.
