Spore Downtime Today

The Spore Website warns there will be scheduled downtime later today for the Spore.com servers. Word is: "The Spore.com servers will be down for maintenance on Wednesday , October 22nd, at 10AM Pacific Time (5PM GMT). They will be down for approximately three hours. Players will be unable to log into their games and the website will be inaccessible during this time."

anyone who's played the game knows that "logging in" is 100% optional. There is absolutely nothing whatsoever keeping you from continuing your saved single player game when you're disconnected to the internet. [...] THE ONLY LIMITATION IS LOGGING ON TO SPOREPEDIA.
Cool. I guess it's option (b) then -- a case of them choosing their words really badly. How about "Players will be unable to log into Sporepedia", rather than "Players will be unable to log into their game"??

I'm sure they were only aiming the announcement at players who knew what it meant, but for a game that has taken so much flak for its DRM, it's still slightly surprising they didn't think about how it was going to sound to other people...

Thanks for the clarification, though.
