i just hope, they will not make huge mistake, like BnS. They priorise NA. Release updates, doing maintenance, when its perfect for NA, but they didnt care about EU. Thats why my friends and me left them. So, if the download link will work after we must go to sleep, just for some NA kids pleasure... :P

That would be incorrect as they aren't going by GMT?  UTC is the system they are using. If it's 18:00 utc it will be noon for CST and the hour differences for other places.

Unless you are some scientist or something like that, UTC is equal to GMT for all intents and purposes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinated_Universal_Time

You're correct; The only difference is one is a used time zone, and one is just used as a time-standardisation.

We'll be going from Fantasy to in-depth discussions on time-management if we're not careful...

My point is the site specifies utc not gmt... And nobody uses gmt anymore for launches? it does say utc is the successor because of convenience.

You took my words out of context i didn't say they were different i stated he was calculating the wrong way - I.e i was actually helping with people having difficulties - the world clock does it's job just fine - i love it when kids like you find and pick at everything i say - no such thing as relaxing at 5 a.m anymore eh?

So the 18 year old person tell me I'm a kid, thanks for the laugh... (For your information, im 28 years old), also it's about 13:00 for me ;)

And the far majority of people I know uses GMT, not UTC, and I dont see anywhere it was stated in my link it was adopted for convenience for the normal user, maybe a slight HINT (though not exactly said still) for the scientific community, so you starting it is "That would be incorrect as they aren't going by GMT?" is... well incorrect, because UTC and GMT is the same, for all intent and purposes for the average guy, who just want to figure out the time in another timezone

Will they wipe after CBT2 ? 

How do you manage name and appearance in the CBT2 ?

I remember A Realm Reborn once had a similar mishap, and to compensate extended the duration of Beta to a day (since a lot of players had missed a day to download). Maybe they'll do the same?

Yes. They will wipe after CBT2. And your name and appearance will probably be managed just like the Character Creator. The only difference is you won't be using up your reserved name slot until the actual game release.

There hasn't been any mishap yet - they said it'll be available to download today and - it's still today!

Right, but the hour was wrong, and we're not sure yet of HOW much wrong it was. Could be 5 hours, could be 10. Some people are already saying they might not download in time for the opening of the servers. So maybe if THAT happens, they'll extend the beta of as many hours as the delay.

I see. So just temporary charas. Sounds fair.

Cheers.

There hasn't been any official notification of when the download will become available.  I've got a pretty crap download speed myself, so I'm keen to get started ASAP.  I'll be leaving my PC running overnight so it'll all be downloaded by tomorrow morning.

The beta starts at 8am UTC on the 18th, that is the only times they gave us. They said the client can be downloaded on the 16th, they did not say when on the 16th
