If you are surprised by the extended extended extended downtime, then either you just started playing or you have a short memory. This happens with EVERY major patch.
Don’t be surprised when you finally do log on and things are buggy or not working. This too happens with every major patch. In fact, Blizzard has already released a list of “known bugs”.
Seriously guys…. same pattern every time. People BEG for major patch; Major patch screws up content, People QQ both before and after. And seriously, don’t bother QQing to me. I warned you this was going to happen and most people said “It’ll be fine – Blizz always gets it right” or “I just want the patch”. 😛 Very few of you have any room to talk.
So go get a book, do chores around the house, go outside – but don’t expect to play much tonight.
[In before Kanrad and Inquatitis or other guildies reply with “QQ”]. Stealing thunder iz fun 😀
ETA: BTW Blizz, “Unforeseen complications” my butt. See entry from a few days ago.
