Dropping the game and irritating a few hundred (Maybe a few thousand) players, or dropping the game in the evening in the United States, and irritating 50,000+ players? I'm just guessing at the numbers, as I do not know how many people play the game, but to quote Spock (And many others, throughout the years), 'The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.'
In this case, the United States are the 'many,' and Europe is the 'few, or the one.' It sucks, yes, but it makes sense overall.
Not sure if serious...
They had earlier maintenances for 1.5 years. What happened? They can't have maintenances on different times now? Of course if the plan is to have no european players at all I can tell it's starting to work.
