Why was this 3-HOUR UNSCHEDULED (now over 4 hours due to unexpected consequences of the "maintenance") downtime done during the day and during a DOUBLE XP week? Seems like it was scheduled at a CONVENIENT time for DBG (regular daytime work hours). Why does it take over 4 hours to make what appear to be minor changes? Are these qualified programmers who know what they are doing? Are the changes mostly nerfs? Seems like the game was functioning just fine. More annoyed since I'm on vacation and it was very inconvenient for me. As we say in the hospital, "the enemy of good is better." Trying to achieve perfection can cause more problems and possibly kill the patient.

According to EQ2's web site, they took the game down due to technical issues. I'm as frustrated as you are. I wanted to log in and work on my lowbie Fury alt. :(
