i realize its a moot argument, as its come and gone...
but did they really need 5 hours to fix something this small?

just queue up a fix, have it install next time they log in.
if someone bitches that they still cant get theirs,
tell them to logout and back in.

i really with SE's programmers would get their stuff together

Um, if you look at the original announcement, they said they were replacing part of the server equipment which was probably causing a whole bunch of problems. They also probably wanted to add some other fixes during the downtime, it's just that they probably didn't want to mention them right away.

You just have to accept that sometimes SE won't tell us everything they do. Yes, it's discouraging, but at the same time, they must have their reasons to.

So please, don't put the blame on the programmers. There's more going on behind the scenes.

Both the hardware change and that slight fix were done at the same time; nothing unusual there.

Given that some games have scheduled downtime every single week (WoW, for example) this is pretty much par for the course in the industry.
