really...what the heck broke that is causing this DT? I understand Bioware wants to get things right, but the amount of Downtimes are rapidly getting out of hand.

Can we at least be clued in on what caused this ridiculous downtime?

There have only been about 10 threads explaining what happened. Go find one.

The down time was caused by bad code when they patched it so people can delete their characters. This entire 1.2 patch has been a PR nightmare for them. You can't make statements about "Taking time to make sure 1.2 launches with no bugs" and then have this happen. In my line of business I would be unemployed at this point.

Please see this post from Stephen Reid about the reasons for the extra maintenance today

and from Joveth Gonzalez explaining that everyone will be given an extra day of game time as compensation:

Once again we apologise for the problems and will keep you up-to-date with timescales for the return of the servers as soon as we have more information.
