weekly server maintenance: or how low can blizzard go?

i really wonder if the server admins and developers in blizzard are certified or just happen to keep their jobs cos they were there first.

what was supposed to be a simple 8-11 maintenance period became a 1-hr more thing, then a 2-hr more thing. and then when you can finally log in, welcome to massive lag. lag so bad, when you mine a vein, it takes a minute to load the stuff into your inventory.

i took xense to H PoS. gave up after the 2nd boss. cos after a lag-related wipe, we couldnt even release to run back. had to wait a couple of minutes. then we couldnt get back in the instance. again, lag wait a couple of minutes. finally, we just gave it up.
