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.

The patches every day are annoying, but better to have it fixed and have a downtime of an hour than to have a bugged gameplay. At least some of us pay for it or have a lifetime account, so look at it as a service.

The time of the lowest player count changes over time. Just because myself (and thousands of others) play at 5pm Pacific time, doesn't mean that in three months, those same thousands of players won't be playing at 7pm Pacific. It changes. I seem to remember them doing maintenance (at one point) around noon Pacific. Now it's 8am Pacific. It changes, just like most things.

"it's that simple"

yes, when it's not 6 days in a row. when you're always in that timeframe, you probably will try to find another solution, stop subscribing for example (for info, european subs are a lot more expensive than US ones)

Read the earlier posts. I've gone over it twice, and others have also said why.

Maybe because they are doing this in their work time?
