Well, actually under consumer law the T&C of any purchase or service contract can NOT trump the basic consumer protections enshrined in law.

Those protections mandate that a Customer can reasonably expect to get exactly what they have been advertised to get: so if we get told 4 Days of Double XP, and because of elective downtime Bioware has delivered less than 4 Days of Double XP there is, at least, the possibility of a claim.

Those same protections also mandate that the Customer can expect to get a product / service that is "fit for purpose". I doubt any court would see a breach of that for a short-window elective interruption to service. But they could for longer term interruptions, or interruptions that the customer had not been reasonably pre-warned about.

Far too many companies would have you believe that you surrender certain protections when you accept their terms and conditions. You don't. There is a baseline level of protection that their terms and conditions can NEVER strip away from you, even if you willingly signed up to them.
