I have every right to be on the forums and I ain't the one trolling. This same topic always pops up every week there is maintenance. And it is usually the same people.

That's because Bioware still hasn't had the decency to implement maintenance times suitable to their server regions. No one is asking for unintended maintenance to be done at specific times. It is unintended, so you can't really predict when it will happen.

But there is no reason why these weekly maintenance slots can be done at a reasonable time for their servers - ie. US servers are done during US offpeak times; EU servers are done during EU offpeak times; and Asia-Pacific servers are done during Asia-Pacific offpeak times.

Given that they released servers local to the region they are serving (for example, iirc, the EU servers are located in Ireland), then it makes even less sense for all of their servers to be down all at the same time. They are spread out across at least three different locations across the world, so why not have maintenace times that suit those regions?

Soooooooooo ... after 6 months of this, you are still surprised and/or shocked enough that it requires another post?

You do know that MMOs based in countries other than the US do their maint times based on their local time zones as well right? I am pretty sure it is standard for most companies to do this as their employees (the ones doing the maint) work on those countries times ...

I am from Canada. My peak time playtime is during maintenance periods as I am up at night and sleep during the day due to the type of work I do.

Which makes it your "play time" it does not meak it PEAK time.
Peak time by very definition means the time when most players are playing.
