    I never really pay attention to the down time on Tuesday because i have School and XC and are done by now, but the past 2 Tuesdays I've had off (election+veterans day) Its 5:30 EST thats 3:30 over due i mean common blizzard its not hard. Just asking are there excessive downtimes common or just 2 bad weeks?

    To be totally honest they're very common. I usually avoid playing the day of the rolling restarts because I would get so frustrated at blizzard not having the servers up when they say they would. Plus you have to give them some leeway because of how WolTK is coming out tonight and they have to prepare ect...

    It seems whenever I used to play on Tuesday around noon I would have 2 hours to play after servers were supposed to come up. After the 3rd time of being disappointed I just stopped playing on Tuesdays. Maybe I had a bad 3 weeks of luck... I don't know, but I do know that ive had bad experiences with rolling restarts.

    You mean reserve one? If you don't reserve it you're not going to be able to get it for quite a while (my guess).

    Yeah chances are that you have to reserve unless you live in Nowheresville. Very common from Blizz and don't expect them to have the realms up. They are using the mail as smoke and mirrors. Org is getting razed and they are prepping the event for tmw evening is my bet. =D

    I know CD key stores that claim to of sold BC keys on release day, can't be hard to find. My belief it'll be like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Spent an hour, till midnight, to wait outside in a line, at Barnes and Nobles, of well over 200 people to buy the book because I hadn't peordered it and there were another 300 people who had preordered in the weirdest line EVAR waiting to buy it.

    Walked across the street to Wal-Mart and bought it for $3 less (well I did buy some candy :biggrin:) in 5 minutes. Pulled an all nighter which by this time was 4 hours away :wink: and finished it by sundown.

    Moral: Don't preorder **** and go to Wal-Mart.
