I thought Diablo 3 would start at 12:01 PST. But Asia is up and running. Why have all the hype about 12:01am PST May 15th ? I do not remember reading anywhere, that the game would start before 12:01 PST time on May 15th. I am lost as to why other's can play the game but I can't at this time. Thank's

Reading "anywhere"? It was brought up 2 weeks ago how the Asia/EU server will be up a good 9 or so hours ahead of every one else.
They use the basis Blizzard is in PST to explain east coast has to wait.
But nothing about how blizzard being the main location, that asia goes first.

why is it so important that others can play before you..???

the launch is 12 AM for everyone (0:00) for Asians it's already may 15th, for Europe, it will be May 15th in 4 hours and a half (give or take 1 hour), and for you guys, I have no idea.

It is region based.

Asia gets it first, then the EU, and then the Americas.

At 12:01am PDT 15/5/2012 all the world will have access, The Americas are the last unlock region.

Different Regions are different.

I know time zones are super hard to understand, so rather than explain the impossible, here's a haiku for you.

Time zone of Asia,
You may be a day ahead,
But still 14th here.

The release date is officially 12:01 AM May 15th for the world....
Now it is up to you all to figure out WHY other countries are able to play it "before" the Americas region.
Hmmmmmmm, and more specifically, North America's starting time is going from PDT
Europe is CEDT
Did not read anything about Asia.
But seeing as how I do not live in Asia or Europe, don't really care what time they get to start, as it will not effect my chances of playing and getting items.
Do not see how it would effect the Americas server at all.

Now was that so hard for everybody to understand?

If D3 has taught me anything it's that a large majority of people have no idea how time zones work, did anybody pay attention in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, grades when they go over this.
