Video Mode Ultra is gonna get some good use here. I've been waiting for that since it was announced. Now only if Blizz would quit smoking cigars and counting all that money and get us some real server techs. Seriously. "Come back in an hour and I'll tell you when we MIGHT come back online." (One hour later...) "Come back in an hour and we'll tell you to fuck off again."

Actually, things being unpredictable AND Blizzard acknowledging it is a sign of them having real smart people in charge of that, instead of PR people. Bugs with any programs can take a while to flush out from my experience, and that's only on small programs on my computer. I can't imagine what goes into keeping the WoW servers running smoothly, especially on patches.

I'd prefer them to take their time getting the servers back up, rather than have them come up early and crash all night, be missing stuff, etc.

Unpredictable? Isn't that what the PTR is for instead of just pushing content live? What's the use of a PTR if when they go to implement it, it doesn't work? I'm no tech but it seems that if it was working on the PTR and all it should work on the Live Server.Like I said, I'M NO TECH and this is my thought process. So don't go bashing me saying "Lulz u have no idea what you're talking about!"(SIDE NOTE: Why doesn't the comments remember me or accept me as "Returning" even though I've set up my own password?)

In theory, yes. In practice, reality is annoyingly random.The PTRs are designed to be for testing, and can be down for weeks at a time while they get stuff set up. The majority of the live realms have been running for years, and all almost probably have artifacts, their own little quirks from files forgotten when upgrading, etc.
