Everyone Hates Tuesday
I would choose the day WoW has extended site maintenance as my first day to play. Epic timing fail. (Is there a WoW version of the fail whale?)
In the meantime, I’ve discovered that WoW people really, really hate Tuesdays because that is the day Blizzard has weekly site maintenance. There’s even a WikiHow on what to do with your time when you’re not in-game. And it includes suggestions that aren’t WoW-related. Shocking.
