What about the disruption of Rift, or WoW or EQ or any of the downtime they have for maint?

Last time I looked, WoW is down...oh gee, the same time that SWTOR is down as well, imagine that.

It's a Shame, this world has got 24 time zones not only one (or 3 ones). And we're paying the same membership fee than the american customers.
And Here I'm, on christmass holydays and with the servers down in the middle of my free of work day.

Keep doing this and you'll not care about EU customers anymore.

yes very long maintenances and very bad time
you can not play practically all day

And 6 hours every weeks?

I hope that at least fix the most serious errors
graphic bugs in some locations is very bad.green and blue lines across screens.Fps is very low
constant errors and problems with the Companions (for example, lifts)
stack items in the vault. When inserting new things, one must manually all on stock.
For instance planet Taris with a very powerful systems running virtually unplayable due to graphical errors

and many many more what i see

I doubt it's as bad as you claim, if I can't play my Main or Main-Alt on my home server I won't bother playing.
And i've noticed a few comments from American players claiming that it's ridiculous the Europeans are so annoyed about it. It's barely ridiculous, we pay the same fees as you do except you get your maintenance time when the normal person is asleep (4am-10am I believe?) and we get ours when everyone is awake (10am-4pm). That's ridiculous, and definitely needs changing.

All game servers and SWTOR.com will be offline during this period. This maintenance is expected to take no more than six hours, but could be extended.

While today is still classed as a holiday in many parts of Europe and many of you may still be off work or school, this downtime slot was chosen for a number of reasons.

Firstly, in the past, we've talked on a number of occasions about how we will run a global service. Many players raised concerns that patches/updates would land later in the EU than in the US. We stated that as we're running a global service, we'll do everything we can to make sure the updates go live in both regions as close together as possible. For this to be achievable, we need to run maintenance at the same time.

Secondly, although many of you are able to play at this time, this is actually one of the times in the day (and the week) when we have the lowest number of players in game. It's certainly far from peak. Given that many of you are still on holiday, today's maintenance may feel a bit more out of place than usual, but in the future, the number of users impacted will be even smaller.

Finally it's also worth noting that today's downtime was a little longer than usual and in the future, shouldn't be the case.

So hopefully that's gone some way in shedding a light on the reasons as to why we've chosen this slot.

- EU Servers go down for maintenance. EU Players that want to keep playing, bum-rush the NA servers causing population imbalance and stability nightmare.

- US Servers go down for maintenance. US Players that want to keep playing, bum-rush the EU servers causing population imbalance and stability nightmare.
No. I disagree with you. A vast majority of people would be asleep during these times, and therefor there would be no rush.

and Also we was asked back in 2008, if want to be able to play on what ever server we wanted, so they need to do this make that happen.
