Wordfeud, server maintenance & monetization

wordfeudSo I’m a Wordfeud-addict (you know, Scrabble without the TM infringement) and the game is down since this morning. Their Twitter-account reads;

#Wordfeud servers are going down for maintenance around 06:00 CET. We expect 2-3 hours of downtime.

This message is 9h old but still no Wordfeud, so they must be facing major problems. Which begs the question; is Bertheussen IT into server-technology? And wouldn’t they invest more if paying customers could simply stop paying if service-level became too bad instead of paying a one-time fee?

    The WF blog had this;

    The Wordfeud servers are currently down for maintenance. We expect the servers to be up again around 09:30 CET.

    Update 22:30 CET: Maintenance took longer than expected, but partial service was restored by 14:00 CET, and full service by 20:00 CET. Unfortunately, tonights Facebook outage is also having a negative effect on Wordfeud. We’re working on mitigating this issue so that users who aren’t logging into Wordfeud using their Facebook account can still play.

    Update 23:00 CET: Facebook has restored service, and Wordfeud is 100% up and running again! We’re very sorry for all the downtime today.
