In recent weeks, a good portion of the Warcrap servers have been going down just about every night — instead of like in the “old days” when it required the weekend crush to bring those bad boys to their knees.
I wonder if it’s gotten to the point yet where the suits walk downstairs to where all the khakis are and just stand there and sigh. Once a suit has moved past screaming to sighing, it’s getting serious. That’s the “I really want to murder you all” sigh.
Goddamn, can’t they just make a few phone calls and steal some IT people from SOE with the lure of piles of cash and be done with it? At least SOE’s servers are up most of the time — last time I played a SOE game, about a month out from launch, they at least had most of the shit cleared up and were ready to do some serious nerfing.
I am enoying this in a very perverse way because: 1. What can ya do? It’s the sad state of affairs with this game, and 2. It hasn’t affected my server … yet. I have a feeling that if I did play on a cursed realm, I’d be giving some serious thought to cancelling my account until they got their act together.
This game isn’t so compelling that the (almost) daily aggravation is worth it … ESPECIALLY, after almost four months. (Heh, I read on the forums that one of the players has 6 characters, all on different servers, so he/she had a character to play when a realm would tank. Last night, he/she made a 7th character to get some play time — the other 6 were on dead servers. That is just fucking sad.)
