Next week Sunday evening at 6 pm overhere in europe, early release starts.... Why does this feel so much like a lost weekend, i keep hoping they will open up the servers at the start of that weekend..  To us imperial pre orders..

 

if not i might have to become very sick by Monday, atleast for two days..

    I think they're counting on the fact most folks have to work on Monday so they're servers won't get flooded over the weekend. Remember when they said ESO will release with no server problems? What better way to help realize that prophesy than allowing early access on a Sunday evening? We all know if they allowed early access on a Thursday or Friday then the servers will get bombed.

    I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

    Why don't you just take a few days off like everyone else ;)

    I'm lucky, I still have a few days from last year, and I have to take them now. So timing is right! It's been a while since last time I took holiday for a game haha

    i was just joking offcourse, i would never call in sick to play a game...  On top of that, everyone would know, as we have been discussing this release quite a few times over the past few weeks, but then i havent been sick for over ten years, so maybe they would not suspect anything

    I'm taking a week off to do some writing, modding and to immerse myself in ESO.

    Pretty much what I did with Skyrim.

    If they were serious about avoiding server stress, they'd launch at midnight EU time, lol

    On a Sunday evening, absolutely everyone who can will be logging in, that's like gaming primetime !

    Iirc, EVE used to set new concurrent player records on Sunday evenings...

    As far as I know there is no 'set' time on the 30th as yet? I have always assumed (once I got over the ...Sunday...but why???) it would be the same as the betas. Noon time Sunday with the possibility of opening earlier (10AM being the regular time on the betas).

    Just glad of the 'pay to reserve char name service' so I don't have to rush to log in at the start of the early access just to make sure I get the toon names I want.

     

    But I heard they have added an overflow server, so most will be able to play once they get past the log in server bottleneck.

    I'd like to point out that only in gaming will find guys that are happy about an "early release."

    Sometimes, the English language just makes you laugh. :)

    From what I have seen and read, there are no name reservation systems in place. So, if you want a particular name, you had better log in as soon as possible, if you choose a lore friendly name.

    I'll be there as soon as the doors open. Fortunately my names aren't mainstream so they are likely to be unique at least for the 1st crush.
