Oceanic Soap Box: Maintenance Leisure Time

This week I thought we’d get on our debating socks to talk about a subject that’s near but not very dear to most of our hearts: MMO server maintenance. This week saw a rather long maintenance of 12 hours over at Star Wars: The Old Republic – you only have to read the comments to see how maintenance can be a little annoying, particularly if it runs longer than scheduled.

So here’s the question: what do you do to while away the time a server is down? Do you play other games? Do you have a backup MMO you jump right into? Post a comment and share – we’re keen to know!


  1. If I know when maintenance is being held I take my girlfriend out during that time.
