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?)
What makes you think any indie MMO is a major company, and even they know what theyr doing?

Could we please get some information on why the downtime is extended. I understand that these things happen, i am not bothered so much about the extension as the lack of communication about it. I read that we would be updated on the twitter feed, here is a brief version of what we have

7hr ago - down for maintenance for 4 hours (standard notification)
3hr ago - extended for 30min no info why (is only 30min so ok)
2hr ago - extended no eta (annoying but ok things happen)
1hr ago - working to bring servers up as soon as possible (ok at this point is just plain aggravating)

I would hardly call this keeping us updated. This is us just being told wait and it will be done when it's done, this is not an update.

Something along the lines of, we are working to resolve issue xxxxxx which is causing xxxxxx, and hope to have things up and running as soon as possible would be an update. That way we would know what is causing the problem and actually be given decent info on the reasons why this is happening.

Whereas what we are given is basically nothing, it is the online equivalent of when kids are pestering their parents for something and they are told they will get it later. No reason why, no description of what is happening nothing.

So I went to bed early cause of the maintenance and then woke up 2 hours when it was supposed to be back up again. What happens when the games down for longer then expected, I'm force to watch 3am television shows or play WoW <shudders>.

As I said before, it could be HARDWARE since EA likes to buy the crappiest hardware for server. All their online games have the worst servers ever.

It is very simple. They left the monkeys in charge of the update, and someone threw a banana into the room. It could take all day to get them back in their cages.
