How telling this is about your so called experience. I remember many spotty MMO's that had unscheduled downtime soon after launch.

You claiming that this is necessary or normal for MMO launches shows your ignorance. It does NOT take this long to patch an MMO. This is a policy decision from BW... and it's a poor one.

So I;m complaining. I get to do that - Freedom of Speech and all that. If someone doesn't they won't change.
If you check the dev tracker it will show you that your logic is false. The servers were only in fact down for only a cumulative time of approximately 7 hours total for those three days combined.

You don't want bugs fixed? Right. You're probably the first one to complain about them. There is a saying for your kind, "give them a bag of gold they'll complain it's too heavy".

What's funny is you list out your MMO credentials. But then act like you've never seen either one of those launch.

Does anyone remember the launch for Everquest, Everquest 2, Vanguard, WoW, Tabula Rasa, and many, many others? Yeah, when they launched Vanguard, it was the most horribly buggy game ever released, and was pretty much unplayable. With Everquest, you knew to not schedule anything at all during expansion launch or patch...not day, week. For what it's worth, they are doing a really good job.

Anyways, I find it funny that people are up in arms about "8 to 10 hours of downtime every day" when they actually had 7 hours of downtime over the three day period, and they fixed some pretty important stuff, such as item and credit duping.

Funny, they may have said 8 hours (give or take) but on a couple of those nights I was able to log back in after an hour, so not much downtime which suits me just fine.

No matter what's going on with the game, patching constantly likethis is NOT the answer.

There has to be a better one.

This one STINKS!

EDIT: To be clearer, I am complaining about the servers being down for 8 or 10 hours a night, 3 nights in a row. It shouldn;t be necessary for them to be down for this long. If it is, BioWare needs to bring it some programmers with more experience in implementation, because no other MMO I have ever played has ever done this. Once a week to restart and maintain servers? Sure. 3 days in a row for 8 to 10 hours a night? Never, in the 15 or so MMO's I have been a part of the launch of has a game company done this.

So I'm complaining. I get to do that. I'm a paying customer. With out feedback, BW won't change. I want them to do so. Therefore.....
You really are completely oblivious to how much the game is broken right now, i hope they do maintenance every single day to fix the problems, seriously this game has A LOT of major bugs that have to be ironed out fast, stop complaining.
