Aww, Yippee! Whoop de doo! and BFD!!
Yeah, that's worth the wait! Uh huh! The last time they gave us double exp, the zones weren't even playable.

They've had plenty of time, they ought to drop in a new zone or two.

At least throw in some loyalty tokens. If returning after all this isn't loyalty, I don't know what is.

But double-faction? C'mon.

I think we are getting a good deal out of it.

"First and foremost, all impacted players will receive 30 days of game time added to the end of the current billing cycle in addition to one day for each day the system is down. Additionally, many games are offering a variety of in-game items and special events to welcome players back once our services resume (per the outline below). This is true for both PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system based products."

I like the free game time they are giving us, but my only complaint (yes, I have a complaint about free time!) is that it will most likely change our billing dates, right? Add 30 days + whatever the downtime is = new billing date? I have ours set up at a specific time of the month and really don't want that to change :(
