Since I do not play Eve Online I cannot comment on the player base but I am going to assume it is smaller and therefore more intimate. This in turn would make the player base a bit easier to negotiate when they are angry.With the 12 million people of WoW players it is much harder to deal with the angry flooding. Just look at what happens to forums when realms are down for extended extended maintenance. It is flooded with thousands of angry posts, all of which must be sifted through, deleted, locked or shut down. If Blizzard were to announce a patch and then not "drop" it on the scheduled day due to a bug they risk having to deal with this flood. And not only would the flood be for the 3-4 hours that the realms are down, it could go on for days or weeks depending on how long a patch must be delayed.So I can understand why Blizzard would try and hold off on announcing patches.And hey, I enjoy the nice surprise of a patch :D
