I understand how for Blizzard staff changing the server status to the ones that have completed maintenance makes sense. You can monitor how the updates are going. However this information is of no use to developers or players. I would assume this is just because the default would be to report the server’s current operational state as UP but seeing as this is also reported on the Server Status page that is public for players it probably should be changed.
Otherwise this renders a lot of the server status API moot, other than IF the server is actually up, maybe getting the information on load and queues.
Not complaining, but if this is something that is in discussion it would be great to push it out before launch as this tends to be the most important time in the whole expansion to be checking realm status.
It’s kinda important soon, or not again for like 800 days. Thanks as always for the response.
