So, with Tuesday maintenance, there are a bunch of servers getting new hardware upgrades. These servers will have extended maintenance. You can find out which ones on the loading screen, or Blizard’s page where they show the launcher alert updates.
Do you spend all your time here, instead of actually in the instance?
This is the actual “line” to get inside the 5-man trial of champions at like 11:30 pm on a Monday night on Elune. It’s worse at peak times. You should also try low level instances, lol.
That said, relief is coming for a lot of servers tomorrow… just not the one that my main is on. I don’t think I’ve ever been this sad before to not have extended maintenance as I have the last two weeks. It’s a very odd feeling. I was actually sad last week when we had rolling restarts, and I was disappointed again this week when I didn’t see Elune on the list. It’s not just that I can’t get into instances, but it’s that everyone around me also can’t get in, so I have to listen to them also be mad and angry about it – while I also have to be the voice of reason (ie. “Blizzard knows, they’re going to fix it soon. I promise, just hang in there.”
I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but I guess relief isn’t coming for me this week. I’ll have to cross my fingers for next week and see if I’ll get some extended downtime “soon.” It’s just such a strange feeling. I just have to remind myself - Blizzard knows. They’re going to fix it soon. Just hang in there a little while longer.
