Oh good one.

Frustrated here too. I was cruising along really enjoying making progress. Love the CXP bonus. And now been out of the game for 7 hours, basically a day of the event, shot.

I guess I could summon enough ire to have a mini-hissy....

I think it doesn't matter, it's not the customers job to worry about the workload of the people you are paying for a service and in fact in the majority of professions you won't encounter any such behaviour of customers like that.
But for some odd reason game developers get revered like higher entities.....and that's somewhat disgusting.

As for the money discussion, give everyone 1 Cartel Coin and i'm happy, it's the thought that counts, but i don't see that with EA it's more like "Pffff who cares about them".

He got up my nose one night, well morning...it was 3 a.m. and insisted that I was not doing my job, that I hadn't passed it along to the devs and I said: Well...pardon me whilst I nip out back and shoot myself.

My boss was laughing so hard he could barely tell me not to do that again.
Hilarious!

I had a similar time happen back in college when I was working at a well known global chain of department stores, which I will not declare the name of. I was working as a stock person in the paper towel and toiletry isles by myself, which is a job for three people. I was overwhelmed with trying to get the product out of the packaging and properly displayed, and I was behind schedule. My boss came up and actually had to audacity to ask me, "What's up? How're you doing?"

I stopped and smiled as best I could and replied, "I'm glad you asked, Boss." I then went on for five minutes giving her a scientific explanation for finding the direction known as "Up". She simply nodded and listened to the whole speech. When I finished, she replied, "let me guess, you need some help to get finished on time."

I smiled back and replied, "You're so smart, boss. That would be very appreciated."

She walked away, and sent 3 more workers to help me get caught up.

Messy, and messy twice.
One, people will be coming home from work on the US east coast in about 10 min and realize the game is down and join the complaint fest with the rest of us on this thread.

And then the thread will get longer when people complain about queues for everyone jumping in at once, which of course will bring down the login server.
