Oh, I'm sure new hardware is so horrible.Stop the whining, really. Blizzard hosting entire continents as one giant zone was impressive when the game was released, and since then the game has grown tremendously. People complain that their server is always going down or new instances can't be launched, but an upgraded Power Supply, which is likely for future upgrades or for the new instance server set-up, oh no, the downtime! Blizzard is clearly just doing it to piss you all off, they don't want to upgrade the servers at all.This will fix more problems in the long term, and upgrading a power supply probably won't make the servers come crashing down.

Last time they did a hardware upgrade, it took them two days. One day of extended downtime, and the day after to fix their hasty installation.

@AvanThis isn't Blizzard making the upgrades. The company that owns the datacenter Blizzard rents space in is making the upgrades. They'll have a better reaction plan in place in case something goes wrong.
