I got the WoW annual pass for 1 reason: To ensure I could play Diablo 3 as soon as possible, because the store where my CE is preordered won't open untill 10:00AM.
So the plan was to get the wow annual pass, because I "might" want to check out Pandaria any way, and have access to the Digital download version for those first 10 hours.
Well, I live on the east coast. So, I knew there was a chance I would have to wait untill 3 AM to play. I get that.
But now, from various fan sites, I am hearing rumors / speculation that the servers will actually go up based on your region. So, you may actually be able to play on the east Coast at Midnight Eastern.
But, the way I understand it, my digital download is "locked" untill 12:01 PST, and can't be installed untill then.
So, after doing all of this to ensure I can play at midnight, am I going to end up sitting here waiting untill 3AM to play, when my buddy who went to wall mart at midnight is already playing for 2 1/2 hours because the servers went live at 12 eastern?
