The twitter page is updated sooner than anything else. That's how I found out - 2 min after it was posted.

Because they only have a skeleton crew working on the game's maintenance and even those people barely have any idea what they are doing?

At least that's what i think.

You think a person or an organization such as this would learn from past mistakes. They almost always have issues when there is a patch or expansion. They can never get it right. Hilarious

The fact that everyone complains when there is a maintenance tells alot. Just relax, the game will be up and running as soon as they are done, expecting that there will be no problems during a patch is silly. There are always some form of complications, both expected and unexpected.

I will pass on updates as I have them, thank you for your patience everyone.

I guess this should be expected every week now that the maintenance is going to run over the time stated. maybe you should not give a ETA from now on, or better yet actually hire ppl that know what they are doing

Thank you for doing this to fix it
Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Eric gone on record saying people should NOT try to download the patch before the servers are back up, because it might cause problems with your game data?

I don't think they have specifically stated that.

But since there have been issues like this from time to time over the years, it is prudent to wait until the servers are live again before downloading the patch. Why? Because in the past they have been known to release a corrupted patch that they had to quickly pull and replace. If I recall correctly a few years back, they had such an issue and the early patchers had to do a complete reinstall.
