Its the same concept. We have the right to be upset.
You own the car, you don't own the servers. Not the same.

Nothing on the official site, nothing in the devtracker.

I was hoping this practice would die away when rockjaw got the can but alas, still beneath BW to communicate directly to people on their official sites.
Doesn't really apply to this thread. Additional down times for EU servers were posted as a sticky as soon as the forums went back up. Also, with server downtimes it makes perfect sense to use social media for updates, because when the servers are down, the forums are down.

LOL ...

You must work in some field that has NOTHING to do with computers or almost any of the service based industries ...

Wait, do you even have a job (looking at your forum handle, I would guess not) ? Seriously, your post was great, it gave me and my team a good chuckle for the early morning, much appreciated

Thanks for your patience, everyone. We know that it's frustrating if your server is affected by maintenance extensions, but we'll work to keep you updated as quickly as we can when we get new information. We encourage everyone to watch this post (or just follow us on Twitter if that's more convenient for you). Thanks for posting your feedback, but we're going to close this thread and ask that you please watch for our updates on maintenance.
