Yay! Finally we know! And us Aussies can swagger into the shops on the 25th, get set up and be right to go for the 5pm kick off! :D
It won't be seemless. They've been doing this for 9 years and there's ALWAYS launch day problems. So much so that people will scream in the comments or on the Blizzard forums about people complaining that they can't play the game they paid for. If Blizzard would launch it earlier, on NYC time, instead of waiting, they could identify early issues sooner and people wouldn't be complaining so much. It would be so much easier, but they refuse, and it's annoying.Ohh really? Well I was there on launch day for cataclysm, and that was a pretty seamless launch. No interminable queues to log in, no extended downtime, no crash errors, not even lag.There were a few bugs on Hyjal and Vashj (and only in those zones) but they were quickly fixed within the first 24 hours.That really was the most smooth MMO launch I've ever seen.Defending the Rift.(Sorry =P)It was pretty smooth though - I will agree with that.
so that would mean in aus it goes live 5pm on tuesday ?
