Awesome! Makes me happy to hear that.
These downloads will probably be part of "Applying non-critical updates" in the launcher. Since I know people still like to freak out of "this could take a while."
Nice no need to worry then :D
I was never worried about it myself. I'm not going to pay the 40 to have it the instant stuff goes live and then pay another 80 just to have the collector's edition. I'll just buy the ce.
Something I've been wondering about... I decided I'd get the collector's edition of Cataclysm ($80). But it doesn't look like you can preorder it and pick it up in store (I ordered through GameStop). So I'm wondering how long I will have to wait to get the expansion. I don't want to spend the money on the collector's edition AND the digital download, just so I can play at midnight like everyone else. I've tried asking Blizz and GameStop about it and haven't gotten any reply. Does anyone know how this worked in the past? Should I order from someone other than GameStop?
There is no digital download of the collectors. So change the place you order it form will not change that. Choices are you get the digital download and play at 12:01 or buy the collectors and wait a little bit longer than other people. Most likely places will have a midnight launch so u would be only a hour or two behind them.
