I know this already. I brought it up because of people wanting more downtime, when it doesn't directly effect them.

This 100%. Of course it's a USA-based game, but no need to neglect Aussie's most of the time during our prime-time.

I'm sick and tired of that stupid 'it's an american game' claim. 'stating the obvious'? lol. yeah I bet Bioware would be super happy if the EU/AUS folks just decided to stop playing 'the american game'.

This.
And they still do not understand why people around the world would like to kick their asses...... They got such an attitude. "The American Game" is nothing without international money.

If you also consider that in 2008, the majority of WoW's subscription are not from the US.

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that World of Warcraft has recently passed 10 million subscribers worldwide since its launch on November 23, 2004. According to Blizzard, WoW now hosts more than 2 million subscribers in Europe, more than 2.5 million in North America, and approximately 5.5 million in Asia.

Asia and Europe combined make up more of the subscription numbers than the US alone.

Granted these are from 2008, and are the sub numbers of WoW, but the majority of gamers are not from the US.

I also find that Europe and Asia-Pacific servers are doing well. The US gamers are the ones who drop the ball and can't manage their server population and keep complaining.

If it's important enough to bring the servers down for for emergency fixes, it should come down asap, not when it affects the US the least!
