According to this tweet:

https://twitter.com/...717628174446592

The head start will begin at 12 midnight pacific time.

Note that the countdown timer is messed up. According to what everyone is reporting, it is showing 12 noon of your own time zone.

Lol and those on the other coast arent? There are just as many people that will stay up until midnight on the west coast as there will be waking up at 3am on the east coast (or not going to bed at all). It's a Friday night/Saturday morning after all.

I'm not too worried about it personally. I can wait until I get up at 6am to log on and then turn into a lunatic for the rest of the day. :lol:

They based the start time on the u.s. west coast, but is Europe that gets the good start time. It's 2 a.m. For me. Ouch.

yes, 00 hours is 12 a.m.

On a side note, this is great for me as I come home from work around 1:00 a.m. EST; I usually don't get sleepy until 4:00.

It's obviously done intentionally to avoid a bigger rush when the servers first open up.

I can't honestly see why else they would launch a game at midnight, as opposed to NOON, in their home territory.

I'll be stuck waiting until that following evening in the EST to play.

It just stinks missing out on the launch fun because I can't be awake at 3AM in the morning...

No biggie. Just annoys me that this is the trend with game launches lately.

3 AM isn't so bad. It's Saturday, after all. I'll just go to bed early the night before, set my alarm for 2:30 (got to give myself time to make coffee, take the dogs out, wake, and so forth), get on the computer at about 2:50 wait for the signal to GOGOGOGOGO!

I'm actually thrilled by this... and since I live in Michigan, that'll be 3am for me.  But as I noted earlier in the thread, I DO think a daytime launch is seriously unfair to players in Europe and the like - so I think it's cool that it'll be a much more convenient time for them for a change :)

Considering that most of the time ANet's festivals and such start and end at convenient times for those of us in the states, this seems completely fair to me!
