How about doing something a little different?

As the TOS basically absolves Cryptic of anything and everything, just fess up as to what the fault is.

Some honesty would be pleasant for once.

Agreed. This isn't exactly the first online game i've played, free or otherwise & never have I experienced this many server crashes/maintenace cycles until now. It's, pardon my french, **** poor.

Well I have an hour to do the new FE on 3 characters...2 runs per character because the cheap FE doesn't give credit the first time...after this I have 0 time for the rest of the week....

...so how long do the special rewards for this FE stay?

No worries, just stay calm and do your best to get everything running again as I'm sure you will. Ignore the people who will start bashing their fists on the table and whining, they probably have no idea what it's like to work in a datacentre/NOC when things go wrong! Not a pleasant experience!
I'm no IT geek but I'd still like to know what brought it and the website down and so suddenly too.

Look forward to returning to the game ASAP.

Cryptic must be struggling with the decision about whether or not they should spend money on expanding their server capacity (which I think they can scale down later when popularity dies off).

Of course, doing that would reduce the profit for their parent company, PW.

Such a difficult decision.... money? customer? profit? fans? sigh...............

You guys need to chill out... You aren't going to die because you're missing half an hour of precious playtime. With the HUGE increase in players here I'm sure it will take a bit of time for them to properly evaluate the amount of server resources required to accommodate this.
