You mean they can't afford to compensate subscribers?
I'm curious as to which alternate reality you pulled that out of, as not once did I suggest or even insinuate that this was my stance. Context is a tricky little bugger, isn't it? My post was directed at those comparing the amount of down time between a game like World of ******** and a game like Star Trek Online, not at those complaining about compensation.
With that said I just want to point out that if you're paying for a 30-day subscription - let's put it at 10 bucks a month to make a simple example - then you're essentially paying 33.3 cents per day for that subscription. That's 1.3875 cents per hour. You're paying Cryptic Studios a mere 3 cents for a 2 hour down time once a day, and 21 cents if it were to happen each day each week. 41.625 cents a month if there is a 2 hour downtime every day for the entire 30 day period. Assuming that you sleep 8 hours per day, you're already paying Cryptic Studios 11 cents per day (3.30 per month) just for sleep. Factor in school, work, and so on, and suddenly 42 cents per month (at the maximum estimation) suddenly doesn't seem so bad to ensure that the game works during the other 9.58 that you're paying them.
If you want to be compensated 42 cents (fake/exaggerated number remember) then yeah absolutely they should do that. Is it really so important for you though?
You don't get to start a thread on a topic and then declare that everyone with another opinion is a troll or flamer

I suggest you guys read this, then visit my profile and click ignore... thanks
That was kind of my point exactly. You're already wasting the majority of your subscription fee not playing. I understand if you're raging but at least be intelligent about it. That's twice now you've attacked me completely off-base.
Look I know its annoying but again this is because there is a problem involving character data being saved. they have to take the server down more often than normal because if they dont there could be an issue with players losing data. do you want that to happen? i assume not, so until they fix it we are going to have to deal with this. constantly making threads about downtime wont change the downtime.
