What they said. Look, it's proven time and time again--it doesn't matter
time maintenance is scheduled for, someone's gonna whine about how "PWE/Cryptic hates customers in (insert region of the world) because their maintenance is ALWAYS at (x) time!!!" Don't believe that? Check the mass QQing every single maintenance thread. Which, btw, daily maintenances are done at this point to freshen up the server. Once things settle down and/or new hardware is brought online, probably won't see daily maintenance/restarts. (Seriously, like one server is going to handle such a massive load WITHOUT needing to be restarted and flushed out daily? Yeah...an extra server or 2 at F2P launch might have been prudent, but hey, we weren't privy to the estimates and we all know the old adage about the best laid plans of mice and men....)
Last I checked it isn't possible to simply stop the rotation of the world and pick a time that pleases everyone and is still feasible to operations.
And, at least you get ample advance notice of such maintenance (in most cases) But PWE isn't just going to randomly pick a time every single maintenance simply to please everyone. It just isn't possible.
