    I've taken 2 weeks off. Was going to anyways around that time because the rest of the year is difficult for me to get more than 2 consecutive days off work.

    So perfect timing on launch date (except that it's during month end which I usually can't get time off at all but they made an exception if I remain standbye on call).

    Also I've found a spot in the local forest where there's an open wifi connection so I can take my laptop and combine the best of both worlds :)

    Took a whole week off for Mop. But none for gw2, there's no endgame to rush to in order to compete so I didn't see the need.

    people actaully take time off for a game?

     

    thats ridiculous,no wonder people cut through MMO's in a matter of weeks....or should I say in a matter of sick days?

    People take time off so they can go to an island, get trashed and probably catch somthing nasty.

     

    Now tell me that taking time off for somthing you find fun is bad again.

    yes nobody is asking you to do it, you do it cause you want to do it . isnt that great ? you can actually use your holiday and enjoy the way you feel is best for you? wau! narrow minded people come up with replies like " you actually book time of playing game " is same as booking time off whatever the reason you find most fun to you.

    I work from home on my PC.  Time off not needed although my work performance may suffer a little.

    Yep will be taking monday , tuesday, and wednesday. having a little GW2 party on friday night with some friends then its stay up all night gaming.

    I thought I was good as far as not having to work till sunday night (and being thirds I could play at work so why take it off?). But NOOOOO I owe some friends a night that I'm DD and they texted me yesterday that they needed me to do it saturday night. And since my choice is blow them off (when I owe it to em) and risk one of them killing themselves or someone else or skip a night of GW2. Obvious choice I know. Lucky for them I'm a nice person and wont pick the obvious choice :D

    Anytime from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, or 1:30pm to 4:30pm in South Australia.  Officially the later time, but they have said it could be up to 3 hours earlier.

    I just came back from vacation trip, I'm really suntanned, in great shape, I already had loads of fun outside througout entire summer. And now I'm ready to lock myself in my cave and stay there for at least a week after launch doing nothing else than playing :] And I won't even feel bad about it :]

    Haha, I was totally supposed to work that Saturday morning from 8-12:30, but I swapped with someone.  There was no way I was playing for 4 hours or so, going into work piss tired for 4 and a half hours, then coming home probably wanting to take a nap.  Instead, my plan is to go straight to sleep when I get home from work on Friday evening, set the alarm for 2am (EST), wake up like it's christmas morning and game all day :)

    I do hope they tell us ahead of time whether or not it will release a few hours early or not.  I would like some sleep.

    I would have had to work all weekend, but I scheduled the upcoming weekend off quite a while ago.
  • BadSpockBadSpock Somewhere, MIPosts: 7,974Member

    Nah, no time off - just playing all weekend Saturday/Sunday during the head start.

    I would have booked some time off but I've already been off the past 2 months following a motorcycle accident! Got another 6 weeks before I go back to work.
