    You guys do realize just how much data is being transferred, right? I mean they have to do backups which in itself would take hours. Then they have to transfer all that data. We are talking petabytes (exaggeration) of data. The only thing you have to worry about are corrupted backup drives. But I'm sure they have everything under control. Just be patient, it's not the end of the world. Binge watch The Office or Parks and Rec. Go outside. Paint a canvass. I dunno learn something, read a book. Just stop the bitching ffs.

    I don't think anyone is bitching about the actual time that it's taking but just the amount of delays. If it takes 24h, then it takes 24h. I would rather them state that the server migration is a 24h deal rather than state that it's a 10h thing then extend another 14 hours in 2 hour increments. It seems that with maintenance like this, companies that know what they're doing usually state the estimated time OVER the amount of time that they actually think that the maintenance will take. So, if they think that it'll take 8 hours, they'll state that it's a 10 hour maintenance to give themselves two extra hours of leeway. Kakao has been off by at least five hours so far, so it's just a little disconcerting.

    I understand. I work in big data in the health industry and I know how things can go wrong. I develop applications for hospitals and we also host patient data. I've never had to deal with provider changes on this scale but I can imagine how hard everyone is working and the long hours it's taking to get everything up and running. I'm sure that these delays are unplanned and they continuously extend because they are unsure of the amount of time involved. They most likely just want to get up and running asap so the 2 hour incremental extensions are necessary. I imagine people still would be unhappy with them announcing 24 hours rather than 10. But still, I understand the frustration of the end-user. I'm just doing my best to try and diffuse the situation.

    You know, funny because this game has nothing. Grind is all you have. Grind is all some people know in life and they revel in it. They deserve it.

    I'm with ya, OP, 100% all the way, but you're using a water gun on a forest fire.

    Perhaps people are upset that events are still running out the clock while on maintenance.
    There are also those people who have paid their real money so this game can stay open & just expect the customary amount of courtesy & respect due to a paying customer.
    You know.... common sense, little every day concepts like that which normal ADULTS deal with every day of their lives.
