If we had our own server over here in Europe then none of these problems would exist.....
There aren't many people playing at 3pm on a workday. This isn't the issue or the solution.
They simply do not have enough server capacity yet, and for some reason are being overly cautious abut capacity increase. I am going to guess extreme pressure about overhead.
