I'm sorry I'm not from Support, but bashing anyone who tries to help really doesn't help your cause.
This was not my intention. Just wanted to show that I have run out of options after more then 3 hours of trying.
I have a decent amount of obligations so my "playing" time is limited and needs to fit in my schedule. I participated in beta test, preordered the game and played in first months from official start. I stopped mostly because of this issues. For me when server is offline this mostly doesn't mean that I can check it in a "few hours" but probably next day or so. During last month, since I got back, due to mostly everyday maintenance(1-3h) and now this, I was having a lot of problem fitting in the playing time.
I really hope that this will be fixed soon and it will not happen again, as well as that maintenance time will decrease as I really can't continue playing in current conditions for long.
