11:59 is bascially Wednesday.

Which is actually a week and a day from the release of the Spider Wing...just curious.

not sure what logic is behind this instead of releasing it during the day when staff are around in case there are hiccups, but it is what it is. was hoping to be able to play during the day tomorrow to get it done.
either way, looking forward to it.

Probably to help with the server load. Remember the lag from last time?

Probably to reduce peak traffic so that the lag issues aren't as bad. Fewer people will play it AS SOON as it comes out. And then probably a lot of people will play it when they wake up in the morning but that will be spaced out a bit as different people wake up at different times.

This is what everyone else is thinking. Makes literally no sense to not make it Monday night/Tuesday morning when EVERYTHING is released on a Tuesday.

I don't see why releasing it Monday night would make it worse than Tuesday night.

Wow, that's really disappointing. I knew playing at midnight tonight was a long shot, but I can't even play in the afternoon tomorrow? It's a let down.

Once I find that nice token reward chest for completing the first heroics, which also applies to other wings, I'm more than happy to buy the entire adventure set.

Here to hoping that the Hearthstone team is as accommodating as the new Diablo 3 team who has delivered only positive experience so far with each update making the game better.

I understand it will help with the server load, but ouch, that's like 3a.m in the eastern part of americas... And I did cleared out all my quests and arena ongoing game to make sure I could work fully on the second wing tomorrow. Shoot, hope you give me a good quest tomorrow then!

Typical Hearthstone team. Doing something that doesn't make sense and then not explaining the reason for it.

I feel like this unfairly punishes players on the east coast.
