Should we expect the content patch to be available at the beginning of all worlds maintenance on Thursday or will we have to wait until the end of maintenance early friday?
I'm stuck on a slow internet and wondering if I should take the day off Friday or just let it wait.
But hoping blindly that everything will go smoothly, spending all day checking if the servers are back up only to see the maintenance extended by an hour each time you check, and then raging on the forums are all parts of the MMO launch experience!
I'd rather take launch day off and rage at the servers than sit at work, unable to concentrate as everyone is posting how happy they are that they are playing Heavensward right now.
Also, I play on a lower-population server, so this is one of the times where that will work to my advantage.
