Update to WoW patch post

Well the patch to World of Warcraft, or WoW, that I previously blogged about got applied to the servers yesterday. What a mess. Blizzard must not have an effective test methodology for patches and patch rollouts. It took hours for them to get the servers back up, and there were other issues that caused them to have to reboot servers after they brought them back up. On the realms that did come back up, one could see hundreds of new characters from everyone who was displaced because their realms were still down. Once I got back in, the new features were nice, espeically the new toolbars. The general feeling among the community is that Blizzard does not care about our horrible in game experiences and server experiences. I think, if they were to put their money where their mouths are, they would refund everyone playing some percentage of their monthly fee for the downtime and frustration.

Actually, anonymous, they did put their money where their mouth was, and did credit all of us some extra time for the downtime they have experienced. In addition, they have fixed most of the issues with game stability. I don't think it's very fair of you to read one post on my site and make sweeping generalizations about the tone of my posts. If you don't like the tone, or the content, there are plenty of places on the Web for you to find content you "approve" of and want to read.
