Edit:  Never mind on what I said before, it's now confirmed on Twitter that the countdown was bugged and it'll be 00:00 PACIFIC

Those of you looking forward to headstart, it will begin on August 25 at 00:00 PACIFIC Time. ~RB2 #GW2

    It's noon EST, according to the countdown on the website - which would be 9AM PST.  Look at the timer on the site and do the math.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    I hate to be that guy but I could swear I pre-purchased for "3 days head start", not "2.5 days head start". I sense a dark cloud of flame rage brewing.

    24days-15hrs-5 minutes right now at 8:55pm PST.  That drops right onto 12pm August 25th.  That is, unless each time zone actually launches noon their own.  BUT!,  BUT!

    Hmm, I know someone in the Atlantic time zone that also showed Noon est, but if it's changing based on time zone that the countown is borked.  I'm back to thinking the OP is right :P

    Right now its 12am for me, and the count down shows 24 days and 12 hours, meaning for me (east coast, USA) it would be up at 12pm.

    Countdown clock, PLUS it keeps an eye on the latest patches and updates so you're not stuck with a 2 hour download on launch day.

    I can't wait.

    Counter seems bugged for now. They twitter their Web guys will check it.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    nyquil (kidding) though sleeping would be my recommendation :)

    LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
    I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

    Possibly, but it goes on par with the BWE's that all started at noon PST as well.  Until they mention that the clock is right, wrong, or whatever I'll just take a stance that it's going to be noon PST.

    And according to the timer on my side here, it would release 12:00 my time (which is 3am PST).

    I would assume launch will also be at noon PDT on 8/28, so headstart will in fact be 72 hours long.

    I totally hope that what I see on my side is right, noon CET would be perfect, nice long sleep and decent breakfast before diving into the game. If it's noon PST then headstart launch day will be a loooooooong day.
