I spent about ten hours this weekend reading through the copy-edited version of the first chapter of my up-coming MMO book. Most of the changes were fine (modulo acceptance of Americanised spellings) but my rampant Yorkshire dialect use of the "singular they" caused them problems and their changes of "different to" to "different than" caused me problems (I changed them all to "different from" as a compromise solution). Also, they use the Oxford comma in lists and won't accept elipses in any shape or form (which given how often I use them is a bit of a blow...) (see?).

The first chapter is something like 200 pages long out of maybe 750 in total.

I hope the other chapters pick up, it was getting pretty boring by the end.
