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

The download is available at 6pm on the 16th

CBT2 starts at 8am on the 18th

They are giving people 38 hours to download 57 gigabytes for a beta that will last just 4 days.

And you think it's not a mishap?

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

I can tell you are the type who loves to make enemies - Gz you are the first person to receive an ignore in all the time I've been here.

Who said it's available at 6pm?  Considering it's still only 12.40 UTC, there's still a little way to go before 6pm.  I'm fully aware of when the CBT2 starts - I've been hanging around these forums for a while now.

Still no mishap happened yet.

Not sure if this has been asked already, search function didn't wield any result for me.

Can we "reserve" a name by making a placeholder character, delete it and retake the name, or will the name be locked into the database because of terrible coding? :D

I'd love to reserve a name for my Blader, since we cannot create it right now :|

Well, if it isn't up soon-I'll be travelling home where my connection is around 900k to 1.2mb/s. I will not be able to participate in the beta I paid for due to this. 16.02.16 should be just that, not halfway through the day. many of us CAN'T download that fast.

Imagine my pain here in HST. We found out CBT opening for us is near in the wee hours of the morning. 10pm for me isnt so bad but my friends in CST and EST have 3am and 2am start ups. Back when I had the same connection it took about 8-10 hours to download. So I don't think it'll be that bad. The Japanese version that's updated is only around 29 gigs of information.

Also pressing the download key every 15 minutes to check LOL.

But honestly, once I download it, then I'll just be gazing  at the patcher, sighing pitifully, and wishing it was the 18th.

Only one of my friends were able to and it was like voodoo. Don't even know how he managed it but he was like "I'm downloading it right now"

That will take me about 3 days to download, and with the fairly frequent connection drops maybe 5-6 days in total. 

16.02.16 should really be the start of the day, let's give ALL your customers a chance maybe? Only 29 gigs is a staggeringly huge download at home.

I did it through a VPN to play the Japanese version. Max bit rate i was getting was maybe 1.1mb/s all in all it took 8 hours. I had spotty internet growing up as a kid so I understand. Ethernet in for the download so it doesn't get dodgy.

The link takes you to your account page where the download button is. I checked my email and do not have an email stating anything about 4pm UTC. Also twitter still says "Later today". I am sure they will give a hollar on Twitter once the download is available.

 

However, if it's 4pm UTC that would be 11am EST. Which isn't here yet. :)
