I just can't work out why Blizzard can't do server maintainence on Oceanic server's during our off-peak time. This would be during normal working hours in America. Is it really that hard to take 10 servers off the regular maintainence list and do it during normal daylight hours ??

That would require giving Oceanic customers something other than lip service

It looks like all the servers on a battlegroup share a cluster (which is why they can do cross-realm PvP and now dungeons - the cross-realm instances are on their own computer that every server on the battlegroup uses).Considering the Oceanic servers are scattered amongst battlegroups, they clearly can't. If they shut down a battlegroup for maintenance, they have to take down an Oceanic server. I guess they've decided that the development overhead to move Oceania servers into their own battlegroup during maintenance isn't worth the effort - and even then they'd have to shut down anything tied to the old battlegroup, and bring down the servers during prime time to cut it across to the maintenance servers.(This is why, when there are rolling restarts, Oceanic server resets are at a much later time. They don't need to shut down the entire battlegroup, and so they're able to throw Oceanic players a bone.)

Oceanic servers shut down at a different time = every Tuesday primetime, Oceanic servers flooded by dickheads who can't play on their own server so go and troll somewhere else.

@The Claw - How would you feel paying more for less playtime - because if you are an Oceanic server that exactly what you are doing. - FYI I posed a legtimate question - you are the tard that came in and started trolling - L2forum post noob !Given that Oceanic servers have had to deal with this since they first came up, how bout they put the shoe on the other foot and schedule ALL maintainence for Tuesday evenings on the US time? Now I realise Blizzard will never do this as it would upset a majority of its player's. But if they moved all the Oceanic servers to the same battlegroup (which in itself isn't such a bad idea) then they could have that battlegroup shutdown during our off-peak time.Will this result in some player's coming over from US timezone servers - sure, but if it means I get to play on Tuesday then I dont really care.
