The thing I'm more interested in is what they will do as they attempt to restore the data. I work at a casino and 6 years of its history takes quite a bit of time to gather and back up, much less restore from and that's just the gaming information. I can't even imagine how much goes into even one realm.If the data center in Chicago, for example, was destroyed, it would take days to get back up and running and that is based on an unrealistic backup plan. In truth, it would take weeks just to get sufficient amounts of sufficient hardware, not to mention contract agreements with another datacenter, etc.Then again, if any of the datacenters that host WoW are utterly destroyed, we would lose a lot more than just WoW. I think everyone would be surprised by just how much.Back on topic, what would Blizzard do to appease those people as they work on the problem?
