What I dont understand is why they can't do the maintenance on East coast time. I know Blizz is based in California, but the three hour time difference essentially screws those on the East coast. Having the window convenient to the West coast means they get basically a normal day of playtime. However on the East coast (especially on extended days like today) the day is effectively lost. While West coast will be back playing mid afternoon, East coast won't be on until after dinner, and I'm sure not staying up 3 hours later tonight to compensate. Factor those 3 hours every week (though I know it isn't every week just a base number) and you're looking at almost a week's worth of extra playtime for West coast subscribers. I think Blizz should take this into consideration and move the window accordingly.

Try playing on an Oceanic server. I don't, but they get interrupted in the middle of their evening, and nothing can be done because the servers are physically in the same center as the Pacific servers.

Yup because everything revolves around the East Coast. *eyeroll*. Name the last time there was any extended maintenance. Thought so....
B/C Blizzard's main office is in Irvine, CA and the implementation admins work out of the Irvine office.
