First time estimate is downtime between 5 and 7 hours from this post.
As usual I keep this thread open and relaxed, but please keep it constructive, respectful, and reasonably game-centric.
08/14/2012 12:14 PMPosted by Quirkcan't you just say 12 hours now instead of 5-7, so as not to mislead people?
You guys need to learn how to do maintenance with servers up. Having them down for eight hours a week is quite irritating.
08/14/2012 03:20 PMPosted by QuirkThe remark that our last downtime was not typical was also a bit of a farce, as... yes, beta maintenance has been generally consistent and concise... maintenance across the whole of WoW has most generally been longer than expected. Not... a gross number of hours longer... but the general estimate is always based on a smooth day at the office. There is generally (likely) always a hiccup to slow the process down.
