The Daily Grind: Which MMO suffers the worst patch-day issues?

I'm the villain, too?

So Final Fantasy XIV‘s latest patch literally broke the ability to visit players on other servers, which is sort of an inauspicious start when the game is literally planning to make that feature even more far-ranging with the next expansion. Still, this is by far the unusual outcome, not the standard one. And the days of patches breaking something major in World of Warcraft are few and far between, these days, although it’s not that far in the past when the game’s last content patch of Battle for Azeroth ensured that no one could actually play the game on a Mac.

Still, there are games for which patch day is much less a celebration of fun new stuff to find and more a frustrating morass of things not working and major features being broken. Today, we’re considering games doing the worst job of this. Which MMO is the absolute worst about patch day issues? If it’s your main MMO specially, what’s the title that makes you less excited and more dreadful about a new major patch?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
