ArenaNet just laid out when pre-puchasers, pre-orderers (?), and ple-bians can expect to open a sexy, persistent GW2 client on the 25th, 27th, and 28th respectively. Take note that they mention servers going live a few hours early, so you have an excuse to pine at your monitor in desperation while they laugh in mockery with the power they wield over you. Or however it turns out.
EDIT: I don't know how this got posted twice. Please delete one copy at your leisure, mods. Also, 1000 posts, hooray!
