What boggles my mind is the amount of servers they have. 80 god damn servers. Imagine taking care of 80 servers.
Must be heaven for the support team.
Not to be rude, but 80 servers is fucking peanuts. My company has about 300, although probably far less users accessing them at the same time (maybe 40-50.000 peak), and I don't even work for a company that has IT as its primary business (we're a power company).
Combine that with the fact that their servers are all (supposed to be) the same. I actually have to support something that's classified as a server that's still running Windows Ninety Fucking Five.
But if you, as Blizzard, are having problems keeping your 80 servers under control, maybe you need to hire more support personnel that actually know what the fuck they are doing.
It's probably not really hardware related, though, all the issues seem codebased if anything and more like the woes every company goes through when it first shifts to MMORPGS.
You're all acting like all this shit is new or something, that this is the first MMORPG to have massive downtime in its first few months, that it's new that quests are broken, shit is bugged etc.EVERY MMORPG has these issues at the beginning.
You all know this.
But here's what I don't get. YOU'RE ALL STILL BENDING OVER AND ALLOWING BLIZZARD TO SHOVE THAT 15 BUCKS A MONTH STRAIGHT BACK UP YOUR ASS.
And then you complain.
I probably just don't "get it".
