Why not start earlier then 3 am US time? Close their servers at midnight or even earlier for a change. Europe is always out of luck with maintenance, but this time its really bad bad.
AMERICA! **** YEAH!!

TBH, any way they do it people will be inconvenienced.

Exactly, people shouldn't make such a big deal out of it, imo.

Hi There, about that Character transfer...are we going to need to transfer our characters from the servers on our OWN to the new server? and we going to need to pay for that? it won't be made automatically?

Or did I just misunderstood?

You misunderstood.

In order for them to merge the servers they have to stop allowing transfers so on the next patch transfers are on hold and the sale goes off. After the servers are merged then sometime in the future after all the bugs are worked out (yea right like that will ever happen) so lemme rephrase, when enough bugs are worked out after the server merge they will bring back the ability to transfer, but their message implies when the ability to transfer returns it will not be 90cc's as it is today.

So no you do not have to manually transfer your toons to the new server.

Well thats easy to say if you are from the US or never play during daytime in Europe. But for Europe the maintenance is always during day time and for US always during the darkest of night. So yeah at the end we miss a lot more of playtime after 6 years in Europe.... This time its even an whole day and also during a holiday...

Well, I live in Scotland and I play during the day too when I can. I'm getting just as dicked as any other European player. You can't really make them work at weird hours just to appeal to the European players. They are based in the US, it is what it is.

Weird hours? Now they always have maintenance during their night... That are normal work hours for Americans? Learned something new here today...

It doesn't matter.
You have every right to complain, I just don't see what the big deal is.
Anyway, G'day.

The maintenance is primarily for making preparations for the server merges on Nov 8th.
Goodbye all, it's been fun. Time for me to move on (it's ok to cheer ).
