You guys should try and put 1 patch up that you don't batch it all to hell. Like you guys are the worst patchers in the business. I have been playing this game for 3 years and have never seen 1 thing go smoothly. So maybe set a personal goal for this year and truly test the new content before you put them up...... I don't know or fire whoever manages the patches they obviously have some issues.
I think you're just remembering the bad things that happened. If there were login queues, you'd be complaining about that, if the maintenance went longer, you'd whine about that.
I use 'you' loosely, we're all human, please try to remember that the devs are too.
2 minutes between every map load, a minute of which is the Server Not Responding...
Your servers are too small to host large events such as this. And what is with this PRESS ANY KEY garbage at the end of the map load? With that lovely little diagram of how many captains, ships and tribbles there are currently you should have known this was going to happen... -_-;
