Dude, I have to be patient and accept a lot of things, this should not be one of them. When people are paying money for a premium service, they should not have to deal with this. Most of us are not playing for free and this is our form of entertainment when we come home from a hard day's work.
Besides, other game sites seem to be able to deal with issues like this without problems. Probably the best way for them to fix the issue is to set expectations properly.
Guess I will go mow my lawn now. I can't see the kids anymore.
Trust me, I know what a hard days work is more than most people being an Iraq combat vet, and now a highway painter, I have been working 12-15 hours every night for the past 6 weeks, 6 days a week and only have about an hour or two of free time a day, and i balance the time between my girlfriend and this game. I don't like that the servers are down longer than expected, but I have played MMO's for a few years now and I know what to expect. Its not as if they can exempt us paying customers from server down time and put all the down time on the F2P people. There are better things to get your underwear in a bunch over like how the game freezes and the audio gets really jumpy and annoying going into a loading screen for about ten seconds before un-freezing, this happens EVERYTIME!!! (or is that just me?)
