@bjoker1[Edit: 3 paragraphs of snarky, sarcastic comments about how the eastern time zone is clearly superior to the rest of the world and thus more deserving of special attention have been deleted. Will leave it at this for the sake of decency.]Blizzard began the update process at 3 *AM* Pacific time, where Blizzard is based. That's a pretty early start to a day. They had full expectations (although many of the rest of us didn't) that they would be completed by the afternoon, ensuring that all of the east coast people could enjoy WoW by the time they got off work or home from school or whatever.Unfortunately, Murphy's law exists, and the servers are not going to go back up as quickly as previously thought. At this point, there's no way of knowing when they'll actually be back up. It was quite a bit later than 5 PM PST when 4.01 was released, effectively ensuring that all US time zones were in fact "screwed."Find something else to do in the meantime, be thankful that Blizzard is working hard to give us such a huge, free patch at all today, and try to be a little more tolerant in the future.
