Something stupid I think is witty but everyone else ignores
That really has nothing to do with doing maint during the time when the most people are probably on. If Cryptic is indeed working around the clock, logic would dictate they do their maint at a time when the least people are on.
Actually if you look at the situation, you would want the changes to take effect when the largest number of players would be on, thus eliminating having to fix an issue you thought was repaired. Having more people "test" the fix, gives them a quicker validiation that it is fixed. Better to fix something once and move on, rather than go back over and over again.
My two cents. I hate waiting as much as the next gamer, but they are at least doing it properly.
