    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not a worldwide midnight launch and the servers go live with the Cataclysm patch at midnight PST time, not midnight relative to whatever timezone your server is. I thought all servers were going live at that time, so the count down times should be the same.

    Edit: I was right and wrong. It's not a worldwide midnight release but it is going live at different times for EU than for everyone else...

    "Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia - December 7 at 12:01 a.m. PST Europe and Russia - December 7 at 12:01 a.m. CET"
