The manteinance it´s only 3 hours. 6 hours because they will be fixing something else, but you will still be able to enter the game and play.

Nothing will stop us from playing once the 3 hours one is over.

all provinces and territories in Canada (excluding residents of Quebec)

As I expected!

It must have something to do with the fact that contests and sweepstakes are either bound by different laws in Europe, or that they would have to pay some kind of tax to the EU for their contest to be valid there.

You see, I do not pretend to know everything when it comes to our laws, but here's what I think happens in Quebec : For a sweepstake or contest to be legally valid in Quebec, the contest holder must pay our Government even if the contest winner isn't from our region (that is if the prices are valued at more than $100 CAD, which is the case right now). While they may include every other province or territory in Canada, many companies will exclude Quebec from their sweepstakes or contest because it's way less of a problem this way.

Maybe this is something similar with the EU. USA and Mexico may have some kind of tax, but it must simply be the case if the winner(s) is(are) from a given state, province or region.

European players are included in the contest :) It's just that you checked the North American website so you got the rules for North America. If you check the European Article, you will have the link for European players rules.

 

Please also note that we do not exclude countries/regions because we want to, but because we are forced to due to laws and regulations. If it was just down to us we would allow everyone to participate regardless of where they live. The more the merrier! Unfortunately that's not something we can do with contest like these.

UPDATE #1

Starting on October 18, 4:00 AM PDT / October 18, 11:00 AM UTC, all servers will undergo maintenance for approximately 3 hours. An in-game notice will be given 30 minutes prior to the maintenance starting.

 

EU Only: In addition to the Blade & Soul servers, the in-game web features will undergo maintenance for approximately 6 hours. During this time, the Marketplace and Character Information may not be accessible or fully functional. (has been canceled) The maintenance will last 8.5 hours in total for European Servers.

Basically, the maintenance would have previously lasted 3 hrs, then you could have logged in-game but f2 (profile) f5 (marketplace) would have not worked for 6 hours. 

Now, the maintenance will last for 8.5 hours - Meaning you cannot log into the game at all.

And that's Specially for EU! (apparently)

 

It's SHARK week but without the fun.... Oh well. Time to draw the pumpkin for the event.
