And by 'expected' I mean expected by the Devs, because most of us paying customers pretty much expect them to take longer then we are told they will these days.

I am not trying to be harsh, I am just saying that when things run longer then we are told they will it is upsetting. Disneyland posts estimated line wait times on pretty much every ride, and they try to over estimate. They have a guest carry a red badge through the line and hand it back when they get on the ride. If it takes 25-30 minutes then they add 5 or 10 so you see the sign says 40 or 45 minutes, then get on the ride faster then you were expecting... it is a genius way to have someone happy the 'only' waited 30 minutes to get on a 60 second ride... PWE might want to do something like this.

We try and get it as close to the time we project. But, I'll pass along your feedback to the team.

Guess Elton John was only partly right, "We're sorry that this taking longer than expected" are actually the hardest words.

Well, there's your problem. Stop using the LaForge method of calculating project completion time and start using the Scotty principle. You'll look like superstars when you finish the work in 1/2 the time you originally quoted.
