This is a AAA title. Yea its not a typical game, but that doesn't change how game publishers work.

This publisher (Daum EU) only has this one game to watch over.  BTW, do you know why 'typical games' were usually launched on Tuesday in North America and Thursday in Europe? It's because traditional distributors shipped to the brick & mortar retailers on Monday in the US and on Wednesday in Europe. But THIS game won't be sold in hard copy. It's digital download only.

I didn't take that into consideration. That's a great point. The Tuesday effect doesn't apply here. I'm curious to see how it'll be handled then. If the date remarked for release as 9/3/16 (March 9th), 4 days before that would be the 5th, a Saturday.

They SHOULD launch on the NA server(s) in a NA friendly time and on the EU server(s) in an EU friendly time.

@CM_Jouska can you strongly encourage your colleagues to pick seperate (and friendly) times for our two regions? Thanks 

 

Oh yeah.  The last time was so weird/inconvenient.  I'm fine with weird times for cbts, but i really hope they have a normal start time at launch for us.

The official Launch date COULD well be on 9 March and then the 96 hour HS will be on Saturday 5 March. That will satisfy most folks who voted in this poll.

Even though I live in Europe, I'm in an international guild and we'll be playing on the NA server(s). So I'm also hoping for a NA friendly start time.

I would prefer it start on a Friday evening so that I can maximize my time, and maybe put in for some days off.

One of my guildmates said he would only get the Conqeror's package IF the extra two days more than the Explorer's package were weekend days.

That was me (Bishop). :) Saturday morning would be wonderful.  Friday evening even better.

i really doubt it will be over the weekend.it might go into it, but probably not right on the first two days.
with the headstart also comes the release of the game, and with that comes, you guessed right, a ton of players wanting to play.
ideally, they'd start somewhere mid-week so they have enough people on ship when stuff goes south with server issues and what not, you know, pick a time when most workers are actually at work and still have half a brain to work thru problems that might arise.

ideally for players it would be friday into the weekend, but eh, i really don't care either way, i didn't buy my package for the headstart, nor see it as wasted money if i won't be able to fully use the time.i'll be working at the time the game launches anyways, most likely.

Friday Night would be awesome but at the same time Sat Morning would probably be better for my sleep schedule.. can then sleep friday night and wake up and game until i pass out on Sunday.

Every CBT so far started and/or starts on a thursday. So my guess is that the main launch will be on a Monday and the 96h headstart will be on a Thursday also.
100dollar/euro package starts on thursday morning 8am. 50euro/dollar on friday 8am, and the rest of the headstart in the weekends. and Monday main release :D

This is what I personally find most logical. 
But time will tell.

In a perfect world it would be wonderful if it released at 12:00 am sat. but with the time zones east west central, & Europe's time zones its any ones best guess when it will release.
