Or to put it another way:

I am paper, rock is fine, but please nerf scissors

This seems to be the prevailing thought process of all MMO classes. BDO is no exception.

Gotcha, having a small team of techs work overtime once for a server merge that affects 1,000's of players is too expensive, especially considering the black friday sale they just milked the crap out of.

No. You do not take shit down in prime time cause "the devs are in another part of the world". You pay them overtime, fly them here or hell, hire someone who can actually operate a computer besides hitting the on button.

I hate to be negative, but this is 100% true. Most businesses' deployment teams would off the plane and in the office a few days early to prep.

Doing this would be unthinkable where I work. I'm sure we have a MUCH smaller profit margin AND we're incredibly tight with money too.

You could say that's because this is a game and not 'serious business', but the real reason is just cost benefit for Kakao. They can get away with spending less and making more because we're in a crappy market for consumers of MMOs.

This isn't how this business works. PA is in Korea and controls all the content. Kakao is publisher, that's it. Developers from PA are not going to fly to the US or Europe to oversee the merge. Even if they did they don't speak English. 

Personally I'm shocked PA resources agreed to be available at all. It is a pipe dream to think they would stay up around the clock to match US timezones.

What you are asking for is the same as Sony engineers flying to the US to sit in BestBuy stores on black friday just in case anyone has a question about a 4K TV.

They had -----ing technicians fly over from Korea to look into the desync issue (to absolutely no good effect), and you're saying they can't fly them over for a one time server merge?

Absolutely nonsense.

All maintenances before the one of 30/11/2016 were during the night in NA.

Each has his turn, so not grumble.

But never at 20.

Night != prime time evening.

Go to a movie. Big deal the game is down for 1/2 a day.  You will live well 99.99 percent of us will.  There is no good or bad time to do it.  Being down in any time period affects someone and you are not any more or less important than the next guy/gal.

Go get a safety err diaper pin and go protest something useless.

I have been through several server mergers in different games and several things always happen.

1) They never get it right the first time, expect the game to go on and offline several times in the next few days.

2) It always takes longer than they say, expect it to take twice as long.

3) It always degrades the game performance, the lag you thought was bad will be much worse.

4) Players always get screwed in one way or another, except of course the entrenched beta testers.

5) It makes it harder to level and do quests due to crowding, resources will be more difficult to find and gather.

6) It causes players to leave the game in droves,  they migrate to the latest hot game.

I remember when ArcheAge merged their servers.
Let's just hope it goes better than that.

Megaserver is what saved BDO in KR, so YMMV
