I'm just so curious. I've never seen any other game do this.
It seems like genuinely about once every ~5 times I try to play, the servers are down- this adds up when you look at their Twitter showing how incredibly frequently they perform maintenance.
I play during reasonable daytime hours after work on the West coast of the US, and the downages often last ~6 hours- meaning essentially the entire US is unable to play during the peak hours of that day from the West to East coast...
Is this not total insanity?
I also don't remember this being an issue a few years ago when I played much more often.
I searched this sub to see if the answer existed, but I saw a surprising lack of discussion on it- with the only "input" mostly consisting of children reminding OP there are other time zones...
Does anyone know the actual rationale behind this choice?External link →
