Jan 23rd 2009 1:32PM how is seeing an ad on a webpage hurting the well-being of the players?
who cares? seriously? i found the gold ad to be giggle-inducing, but aside from that, it just really isn't a big deal.
Jan 23rd 2009 11:57AM this has really gotten me wondering how many people DO regularly do Arenas and therefore how much of the WoW population are they "pandering" to in doing this maintenance?
informal WoW Insider poll, anyone?

you say: Or a job, seeing as this kinda maintainence is always done when people are generally working / at school.
but there's the rub. when it starts at 5am PST, that's 7am my time. i don't work until 9am, as is the norm, and i love to have the quiet, early morning times to do dailies that are otherwise swamped.
it bothers me that they're fixing Arenas but not the sometimes insane instance lag. i can deal with server lag, but when you zone into servers, that's supposed to alleviate the problem. (though obviously that's what everyone ELSE is doing, so therein lies the problem.)
i'd give up a couple of days of play to fix that. but i'm loathe to give any time up for something that i think the majority of players isn't hard core about.
Jan 23rd 2009 8:25AM i count on my morning play time to do dailies that are otherwise overrun and to get some valuable mining time in.
for Blizzard to take that away is very frustrating. i'm not certain what portion of the WoW population is made up of hard-core arena players, but it can't be as large as the portion that is going to be angry about this downtime.
especially recently, mornings are a nice haven compared to the increasingly-insane lag at night, after work.
normally i don't like to QQ or shake my fist at Blizzard, but i couldn't care less about arenas and it doesn't seem right to bring down the servers for just that.
Jan 19th 2009 11:59AM this is one of many reasons i made my motorcycle. :D
people will ask for rides around Dalaran. generally i will take 'em.
Jan 14th 2009 1:16PM i am a female, have a wee little pink-haired, ponytailed gnome DK of DOOM. she's at level 80 and nearly as geared as my main. i spend about 40% of my time on her, 45% on my main and 15% on my third over-70 toon.
...i have no life, do i? :D
Jan 8th 2009 11:23AM i've already gotten three of the Oracles mini-pets and i'm hoping beyond hope that this week's surprise is some form of proto-drake!
Jan 7th 2009 1:07PM i go in phases, but most of my music is goth/industrial. lately i've been obsessing over Negative Format's Moving Past the Boundaries and Suicide Commando's X.20
angry, driving music is usually best when i'm PVPing. sort of sublimates the "@#%#%@@%# ROGUE!!!!!" feelings. :D
Dec 24th 2008 4:55PM i'm still at work, posting my comment, hoping to win something, thankful for everything in my life. :)
