Why do they need to haul the servers down to patch the game, anyway?

I've never really played a game that had routine down-times of 4+ hours to maintenance and patch.

Generally a patch was log-out, download it and log back in.

Full details, as much as you could glean question with nicely avoided answers here


1 March 2012

Servers in Australia

Players with current payed accounts as of 28 Feb 2012 limited time to transfer

Players from AU, NZ, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Our goal for maintenance windows is the same for everything else we do – we try to think about the player experience first. We want to minimise downtime as much as possible and will be constantly evaluating them to ensure they will affect the fewest players possible.
Meaningless with a touch of how they evaluate "fewest" players possible.
