Well the patch to World of Warcraft, or WoW, that I previously blogged about got applied to the servers yesterday. What a mess. Blizzard must not have an effective test methodology for patches and patch rollouts. It took hours for them to get the servers back up, and there were other issues that caused them to have to reboot servers after they brought them back up. On the realms that did come back up, one could see hundreds of new characters from everyone who was displaced because their realms were still down. Once I got back in, the new features were nice, espeically the new toolbars. The general feeling among the community is that Blizzard does not care about our horrible in game experiences and server experiences. I think, if they were to put their money where their mouths are, they would refund everyone playing some percentage of their monthly fee for the downtime and frustration.
