Its not actually uncommon for an MMO to have more than one server. . usually segregated by geographical area to maximise connection speed and minimise these kind of disruptions. Guess cryptic is too cheap.

As for the "don't want to work at 2am" argument, speaking as someone who often works silly hours in the name of customer service. . . Well Boo Hoo, not much sympathy here.

I've tried to be good and suck it up thus far, but 2 days in a row is taking the piss. Do it right the first time.
