worst is..... most likely bioware wont give anything more than a "thanks for waiting" and we know it.
I remember when the game crashed mid afternoon and it was down for a couple of hours, nobody lost it on the forums like the did today

I like how 3 hours ago Eric Musco was all like "oh we figured out what it was so it should be pretty quick now"...
meanwhile he's googling what servers are.

All the people complaining clearly don't remember the old 1.2 update where the entire patch was accidentally deleted and had to be reinstalled...that was fun! There hasn't been a single update since then that has taken quite so long...I'd say that's pretty good going for an mmo that's almost 6 years old.

I'm sure the team are working as hard as they can to fix the problem and get the servers back online.

We should make this waiting thread a drinking game - for every 20 minutes that passes without the servers back up, we all take a shot or slug of a Star Wars-themed drink/liquor.

Any takers?

I just have to shake my head. Yeah, the maintenance ran longer than planned. No one likes that. You know who that "no one" includes? The people who did the work on it, and the people responsible for delivering the bad news to us when it doesn't go as planned. Everyone would much rather nothing go wrong, and that includes the devs and CS staff. Sure, people would rather have been playing instead of refreshing the forums, but think about this for a minute. Imagine you worked on a patch, things seemed fine, you took the servers down to implement the patch... and then you brought the servers back and nothing worked. You've got an angry mob breathing down your neck, yelling at you, and you're supposed to figure out how to fix it when, as far as you can tell, it should be working right now. Then you've got people screaming at you that your communication has been terrible, purely because what you're communicating is something they don't want to hear. You're supposed to remain pleasant anyway, regardless of what absurd comments are thrown your way.

tl;dr: They're people, too, and don't like this any more than we do--perhaps less than we do. They've given us 7 updates in about 6 hours about this downtime, which is well beyond what any other MMO I've played recently has been willing to do. From my perspective, their communication has been fantastic, both in frequency and in actually containing concrete information about the problems.
