    I think it depends, based on your purpose :) If you mean wipe and reinstall OS every once and a while, then nope, you're not the only one. If you mean cleaning the disk, erasing sectors and clusters, etc. then yep, you're alone nowadays... (I couldn't even tell when was the last time I typed format, probably before win95... btw never use format without /q with the 1-3T hdds of today:) )

    "Billing and Support systems upgrades and maintenance."

    "Today's maintenance is for our back-end systems, like billing and customer service. Nothing is changing in-game."




    Not even "gameplay" related, that's the kicker.


    Billing might possibly be the most important system.

    Might be, also one you do not take offline on a Thursday - Friday going into a Federal Holiday.

    It wasn't a patch. It was just routine maintenance and nothing that was intended to patch or adjust gameplay.
