is this your first MMO??

Patching and maintenance happen all the time in MMO. Especially on days like Launch day / Early release day/maintenance days/ patch day.

Get used to it, or play something else because it will be going on for the liftetime of the game. And that applies to any MMO.

It is very funny if you think about it, the maintenance is at a God awful time in the U.S. , Although a much better time would have been about 10pm U.S. time after all they would have had 12 hours play time already whilst we have 6 hours if you go to bed at 12pm then start at 9am and get 2 hours till 11am for a total of 8 hours. (then many Americans would be complaining).

And what if the maintenance goes wrong? who cares it is in European time!

I personally get the feeling though that Europe will allways be second rate in this game, we were on original information regarding orders, we were with regards to the headstart start time, we are with pre-order bonuses (no reason why we could not get the game the same time as the U.S. just because of when Europe traditionally does releases) ,and now we have this server maintenance at a time which is very stupid for a U.S. timezone that is -8 GMT, I mean who wants to work at 3AM in the morning!

You will find most flames from U.S. players no doubt by the way as it is in their interest.

O.K. rant over , now for the thoughtful part... It is very possible that Cryptic only came up with for a fix for the various issues very recently, and figured that some notice of the servers going down would be nice for all those very nice people that have bought their game and are playing it, and so far on the whole seem to be enjoying it (after all if you were not you would not be bothered if you could not play it ! ).

you should go listen to Rammstein - Amerika while the maintenance is on...if you listen to it enough then you will understand why maintenance is at times that don't hinder american players.

Actually if you do the math, based on the monthly subscription rate, your "paid time" amounts to $0.02 USD per hour. So you're "out" $0.04, if the maintenance goes the full 2 hours.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these people who actually made the game for us and been working so hard to push out patches and maintenance... they're actually human beings aren't they?

I mean.. it's not as if they're androids able to work non-stop.

Do some house chores, it's what I'm doing.

I suspect maintainence will always be at "primetime" in the EU, as to most Americans, nothing exists outside their borders.

Some recent statistics showed that only about half of all americans hold a passport, and roughly the same percentage have never even been outside their own state.
