Wow if this is true then that's crazy..
Thats the most underhanded thing I've seen a game company do; if true.

It's illegal, but hard to prove it was intentional. They will just claim they had some coding problems with the website.
From the Mythic Herald - Update - 12:00 PM EST: The account center is available again.
We will be bringing the BioWare Mythic account center offline for a short maintenance at 11:15 AM CET today.
We anticipate the account center will be back online within 45 minutes no later than 12:00 PM EST
During this time all account center related service will be unavailable, including billing and character transfers.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
Should be working now.
Remember that old adage - Starve a cold, feed a fever, and behead a zombie! - Stephen Colbert.
There is nothing illegal about them making it difficult to cancel. It doesn't mean you can't cancel, it just means that it isn't as simple as logging into your account page and clicking on the button that used to be where you remember it was. The option may still be there somewhere, but in a less obvious and conspicuous spot. At the end of the day if all else fails you could always call them on the phone and cancel or simply stop payment to them through your bank. They aren't preventing anybody from cancelling, just making it less easy.

also, They (tm) made the weather so cold here in nordic region, that you cannot do anything but play online for next few weeks... In games They choose to release this week. Kinda weird.
Muahaha, I cancelled my 2 WAR accounts a couple days ago.
So long, Mythic failures!
Embrace the Darkness!

You take the Blizz pill, the story ends, you wake up in your warcraft bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
You take the Trion pill, you stay in Telara, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes..
Even if it weren't scheduled - which it is - they could cite unforeseen maintenance and get away with it easily.
