An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out! It really was a pretty thing, now that she got a good look at it. The polished […]

It’s Tuesday morning – do you know where your characters are?
comment 3 Written by on March 18, 2008 – 6:40 am

hamsterEvery Tuesday morning we get this little forced break, of sorts, while Blizzard cleans the hamster cages*. The game is down; the servers are down; the forums are probably down (if not, they’re slower than molasses in January); the armory is down. Ok, well the armory is down a lot more often than just Tuesdays, but you get the drift.

Because I usually work afternoons, my mornings are spent taking care of various other things around the apartment and keeping up with the Blog Azeroth folks. So maintenance doesn’t really mean much for me, other than having more people than usual in the Feathermoon IRC channel and the BlogAzeroth chat room, and maybe getting ahead on the blog posts for the week.

I was wondering though – does the weekly maintenance really have much of an effect on you? Sometimes if it runs long and I happen to have the day off, it’s a bit annoying, but I don’t find that it cramps my style too much. Do you have things that you do or don’t do on Tuesday mornings because of the server outage?

Oh – and in case you were wondering… your characters are probably out, enjoying the party.

*since obviously it’s a bunch of hamsters running on squeaky wheels that run the authentication servers lately.

  1. I never really thought about it tbh! Maintenance on the EU servers happens on a weds morning but I’m usually kinda busy in the mornings with the kidlets anyway.

    Love the vid from youtube… VERY funny!

  2. For me, it’s just like any other weekday morning at work! So when I happen to have a Tuesday off, I’m all bummed when I can’t play.

  3. Maintenance happens at about 9pm on Tuesday night where I am, so it doesn’t affect me too much. My guild doesn’t raid on the maintenance night, so Tuesdays is generally a good night for me to restock on my potions, elixirs, flasks, oils and the likes .. in preparation for the next few days of raiding.

    It also means I can get offline early, and spend some time watching television with my beautiful fiancee.
