World of Warcraft. I don't know, someone who knows about server hardware/software could probably provide an answer.
Brutal. What makes wow such a good game that it's lasted like 20 years. I genuinely no nothing about the game and have never played it

Well for me it is the art direction, and blizzard games are usually pretty solid without complete game breaking bugs or atrocious gameplay. They aren't as respected as they used to be (diversity), but they are still relatively good.

Who the fuck gives a shit about diversity. There's a reason why there are more of a certain group of people than anyone else. There's no bias.

World of Warcraft. I don't know, someone who knows about server hardware/software could probably provide an answer.
  • Hardware Maintainence: HDDs and SSDs just die over time, especially when they're under the load of WoW with constant r/w access, practically 24/7. We just don't feel a malfunctioning HDD on our side because systems like these are highly redundant. Faulty Hardware needs to be changed nevertheless, and hot swapping is always a bit of a risk.
  • Server Patches: It's complex software and bugs just happen. Even if there are no official patchnotes here. But not every bug is really relevant to players.
  • Software Maintainence: Just a restart to clear caches often does the trick to keep everything running smoothly.
