For those who keep saying "Don't you know how timezones work" I still will not be able to play until 3AM EST so, ya, explain that.

I agree, and I do not understand why some are being nasty about my post.


Lets reverse the world for a minute and say you live in Asia. Let's say Blizzard says diablo 3 is coming out on the 15th for everyone. So it's the 15th now for you, except because its not the 15 yet in Amercia you can't play the game until Amercia catches up. Would that be fair?

Well I can tell you are not good at reading because I didn't insult anyone, yet you accused me of that. Let me guess it was the grow up line? The line saying how time zones are indeed fair and that the person needs to grow up because that person can't play a game while someone else can?

If you are in Canada,Ontario like me 12:01 PDT is actually going to be 3:01AM PST in the morning which really blows.

I'll most likely be sleeping =/

I hate it that my server opens at 3 am est, but what can you do, just wait patiently like everyone else, whining about it won't make Blizzard change their mind. I am 17 and I don't whine like a kid. Some of you adults are just sad.

Time zones, how do they work?

Asia | America Europe Asia |

| = Date Line


The sun moves from right to left. A new day begins at the date line and travels West, arriving at America last.

That's because us adult's rely on work to live in order to support our family and can't make it online for 3 am in the morning, though how you say were whining is funny because i don't recall anyone whinning, just commenting.

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.

Did you mean 3:00am EST? PST and PDT doesnt change based on where you live.

Somehow you managed to spell whining correctly, and then incorrectly, within the same sentence.

Amazing.

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


There is this weird concept you might want to check out where the time is different depending on where you are in the world. In some cases, it might be a different day in one place as opposed to another!

It's really fascinating stuff.

I apologize if I sounded harsh, but if you scroll back to page 2, you will see what I meant. Hey I have summer school too and I have to wake up in the morning and go to school, and then go to my part time job after that, I am just as busy as you are.
