When you have a server status page that doesn’t work, and which tauntingly indicates that all servers are up even when they clearly aren’t, you have to wonder whether it’s a marketing tool for Blizzard, or just plain laziness in fixing a clearly broken script. Check out the World of Warcraft Realm status page – I’ve never seen a realm (i.e. a server) indicated as being down when it actually is down.
Right now, all servers are down because of weekly maintenance that goes on for 4 hours. And guess what? The server status pages indicates that ALL servers are up, alive and bursting with players killing goretusk boars and pygmy venom web spiders. I’m not whining about the downtime, but I am whining about the perenially broken server status page!
