not complaining, just curious. i've played games since there were games. everquest, coh/cov, swg, WoW, swtor, ffxiv...played them all, and not one of them did daily maintenance. a weekly shutdown was good enough for all of them, so why does dcuo need to shut down every morning? it doesn't seem like it's that complex a game, especially compared to wow or swtor, what can need daily attention?
