    I have to agree. 9AM PST/ 12 Noon EST. That's what it shows for me. :)

    3 day head start? Ummm not really. For me its 4pm my time. I was personally wanted to see the game open AM PST time. Did say 3 day head start.

    If the launch time at launch day is the same as for the headstart it's still 3 days headstart regardless of time of day it launches for you or if you'll be able to play during that time.

    Im not in rage mode, but I did expect more. I think it should still be open AM PST time, somewhere around 9-10am.

    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.

    No worries, you were the random victim to be quoted mentioning the 3 days thing :)

    I wanted to post a comment on it in one of these threads as some folks (not just on these boards) seem to be making the thinking misstake of calculating headstart from noon until launchday at midnight, that isn't really fair if the launch time would also be noon. Or they calculate in time that they can be online (f.e. only during afternoon) instead of the calendar date/time and then blame Arenanet they're not offering 3 days like advertised.

    We'll only know for sure once the exact time for all 3 the launches (3d headstart, 1d headstart and official launch) have been announced and I'm sure there'll be many different preferences across all players worldwide, personally I prefer some time around noon GMT+2, say 5-7 AM PST :)

    What I LOVE about the headstart is that Monday 27th is a bank holiday here in the UK :)

    To those still wondering, from Twitter:

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

    00:00 is midnight. That will be 9am central Europe time. So we Europeans can sleep while Americans have to stay up half the night at least... =P

    And yeah, their timer IS bugged :)

    Thanks Korrigan, thats a relief. Americans still get a headstart in time, but its minimal since its night-time (i know a lot of people maybe will play just because they are too eager to finally do it and forget sleep, but i am, however anxious and eager to play GW2, not willing to skip sleeping for it).

    I am working that night...figures. oh well I will come home at 6am and make my characters and head off to bed.

  • Inf666Inf666 DarmstadtPosts: 508Member

    Wow, that gives me an overall of 24 hours to play through dark souls before gw2 is released. Anyone think it is possible?

    Midnight pacific, means 3am for me (Eastern). All that means is bed at 8pm the 24, full night sleep to get up at 3am, and still start the 48 hour weekend marathon fresh :P

  • stragen001stragen001 ReadingPosts: 1,720Member

    I think the countdown is Borked. 

    It shows 12.00 midday on 25 Aug for me, and I am in the UK on BST

    I think it works it out based on your system clock.

    Edit: Confirmed. Change the time on your system clock and the countdown changes too. The clock is counting down BASED ON THE TIME ON YOUR COMPUTER

     

    Now we just need to work out whether it is counting down to the actual time headstart starts, or just counting down to 12.00 midday....... and if they mean 00.00 PST, or PDT.....urrgghh Anet need to fix this, its making my head hurt

    I did edit the original post to cover the new Twitter update from A.Net directly.


  • stragen001stragen001 ReadingPosts: 1,720Member

    So the next question is...... if i set my system clock forward 23 days and whatever hours, does that mean the game will release sooner??? LOL

    02:00 A.M. Central time...gods.

  • GundricGundric Memphis, TNPosts: 341Member Uncommon

    Looks like I'll be making my characters and going to bed. I'd rather get a full days play on Saturday.  2am Central is a little late for me.
