@Thomas HigginsBlizzard (or any company for that matter) is not going to spend a whole bunch of money to increase their hardware footprint in order to withstand an event that happens with an alarmingly small occurance rate.To make a car analogy - You're not going to build a car out of pure tungsten, carbon fibre, and diamonds b/c it's not cost effective. Yes, there will be situations where those materials will save the car, but the amount of money it costs to prepare for those edge cases is enough to destroy your business model.
