Way to utterly suck Blizzard. Instead of getting to spend my Thanksgiving holiday playing the new patch, we now get it during the busiest week of the year after Thanksgiving when no one will have any time to play due to mid terms/finals/pre-xmas crunches.

You answered your own question: Blizzard's engineers have lives outside of Warcraft too, and spending a long weekend at Blizzard's beck and call, fixing crashes, doing hot fixes, is not their idea of how to enjoy Thanksgiving weekend (if they are in town at all).

Yeah I feel really sorry for people who make video games for a living, especially in this economy. How many people would kill for a job like that? I'd absolutely work through Thanksgiving if I could make money creating video games. They're also probably working through the weekend to get the patch out by next Tuesday anyway, so it's just Blizzard's incompetence that's pushing this back a week.Also, they're working in an industry that's 24 hours a day, seven days a week entertainment. Having their products ready for their customer's free time is the entire goal of their job. So they just failed at it. I've worked jobs in the service industry where I've had to work through holidays so I have zero sympathy. You do what you have to do.
