These replies are tiresome, annoying, and are pretty much just a slap in the face to customers.
“peak times causing problems”
“different playstyle than original launch causing problems”
“console players causing problems”
“too many people trying to log in”
“old coding causing problems”
It’s been a month of the team struggling to hotfix a system that needs a complete rebuild. Everyone knows that is the elephant in the room but it will seemingly never be addressed, and considering you use the WoW server failures as an example of why this is happening means it’s a KNOWN REOCCURING PROBLEM that is continually neglected with each game and expansion launched.
This company has been refusing to address server infrastructure issues for well over a decade and for some reason, we just keep accepting that as being okay. It is not unreasonable to expect better of a company like Blizzard/Activision and I’m tired of hearing it is.
Props to Vicarious Visions for a great remaster, unfortunately it was released by a company that does not care to provide a reliable way to play it and was hoping to save money by running it on legacy infrastructure. Also props to the engineers who are stuck trying their best to apply band-aid fixes when I’m sure they are just as eager as the players to have the ancient system upgraded, they are working way harder than should be required to run a game in 2021.
-1 paying customer achieved. Congrats, that seems like the goal.
