Blizzards West-Coast favoritism knows no bounds. Maybe someday they will wise up and realize that its a minority of their player base. But I doubt it. They will continue to hold all conventions and release times for them exclusively. &%* the East, right Blizz?


Its almost as if their company is stationed on the west coast or something....


lawls.

Whoa. Didn't realize until now that by midnight of the 25th they actually meant 3am on the 25th. *Makes a rude gesture at blizzard*. So damn annoying.

The real kick to the ball sack is Gamestop's website stating they are doing a midnight launch, A text from your local GS stating a midnight launch. going there and seeing it closed.

It's midnight on the east coast... only 3 more hours to prepare my mountain dew funnel hat, hot pocket nachos, skittles, top ramen and pretzel m&ms for a 72 hour all out binge!

We'll see how this turns up in the news. Is it a launch fail or a suspense built powder keg of anticipation. IDK BUT I JUST MADE COFFEE CUZ I THOUGHT I COULD PLAY WOW!

I agree, can't we get better launch times for anyone outside of PDT?

Not going to happen, no matter what time they base it off of, some time-zone will be unhappy with it.

They shouldn't base it off a time zone. It should be midnight regardless of time zone. Wonder how many tears PDT folks would shed then. Don't snap at EST people when you'd cry the same.

Pretty sure they took out server firsts so why does it even matter that a group gets a "head start" over another group?

so you can't play on the evening of the 25th? For anyone that purchases the game in store, they would have to play at that time anyway. So, you still get the connivence of not having to go out and buy the game at midnight then install it. Wasn't it that way for BC? Personally, I pre-ordered and I knew that it would be 1am here before I could play so I am just going to wait for a couple of days until things settle down.

Here is my question how is it fair for the race to world first 90 when the EU servers get to play hours before the rest do? Yes I know there is no achievement for it but everyone watches to see who gets it and sorry but last I checked Blizzard was based in the US not EU.

Use to be based on your time zone for the time you could start playing but the West coast crybabies !@#$%ed about having to wait three hours to play while we got a head start on the quests so Blizzard caved in to them and now we have to wait so they can play at the same time we do.
Look, I love you guys, but this is the second expansion in a row that you're flipping off the east coast. I can stay up until midnight to play the game for an hour, I can't stay up until three-bloody-AM to play. Plus, most of us have work the next day. I know I'm not alone here.

I mean its not the end of the world, but its fantastically annoying. You might as well just announce that the release date is the 26th for anyone in the east.

That is correct. I would have appreciated being told that launch time is 3 AM EST.
Makes me wanna mug a panda.

You mean Bobby's kids. If Bobby lived in the east, we would be in Panda land by now.
