Official Launch Times

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.

To get "Naruto" and "Guts" you're going to have to be mashing that button for 3 hours : )

Also: It's going to be like 2pm on a Saturday for me, so No Worriez!

Screw you. For me the game will go live at 6-9am. That means I either get to bed early (like that's going to happen..) or stay awake all night and play all day. I will be a damn zombie 12 hours after the release.

Sorry mate, but I already called that name a long time ago. You can have xXxUbErSePhIrOtH420xXx1 though.

At least instead of just sitting in my chair waiting from 12AM to 3AM, I can sit in my chair waiting from 12AM to 3AM while desperately trying to launch the game.

7am on a Saturday, I can deal with that :)

7am is okay and I was prepared to get up early to make sure I don't miss the start, but I didn't think it could be going up 3 hours early, that's going to kill me.

Good thing it's a Saturday, but I'll still probably just get up to create all my characters, get the names reserved and then go back to bed.

I don't think I can be bothered to get up at 4am, on the off chance that I might be able to get in at some point. Just gonna get up at 7 and get in. Hell, I might wait until 8 so that all the server and login issues are sorted.

Don't mean to be debbie downer here, but just remember that they said up to 3 hours early. Could be three hours, could be 15 minutes.

...god damnit. I've been around too much. I never used to be this....cynical.

Up to 3 hours means get on the Mumble 3 hours early so we can chat shit while we wait for those bonus 15 minutes :P
