    Clock is wrong for EU lol.

    It says 7 hours 40min now which is equal to 03:00 PM CET today monday. Which is 100% wrong, since cata goes online at 00:00 AM CET Tuesday.....


    So guys dont get fooled by the clock...

    It is also stated on battle.net etc, the eu clock is wrong.

    The Euro clock is correct. 16.5 hours from 6.30 am GMT gives us 11pm GMT.

    Cata is live at 12pm paris time (GMT+1).

    I don't know if these "Clock is wrong" people are just trolls or not, if so, well fed now. If not, they're just wrong!

    Hmmm it's good here I think

    Here it's 7:27 now... and the clock shows 16 hours and 32 mins. That means the game will be released at 23:59. I don't get your point... (btw +1CET here)

    For once it sucks to be in the US. Although, I'm sure European servers will crash and come back online when US will be already playing for hours.

    Actually europeans don't get Cataclysm first, it's the oceanic realms that gets it first, if I'm correct.

    Aren't those tied to US server-hive?

    If Boub had any decency he wouldn't post a world first because EU has a massive advantage making it not even remotely worth mentioning. He needs to suck it up and leave it alone and not give props to another french warlock who just exploited broken respawn rates.

    Why does it say 27 1/2 hours until US release, if the US release is at midnight PST? 430a now, so that's only 22 1/2 hours...

    I meant 430a on the East coast, of course, which makes midnight PST to be 3am for me.

    I´m very excited! Even dreamed about it last night lol!

    Meh, 13 hours or 22 hours, it's all the same for me... Still got college tomorrow (So I can't play during that time), and I pre-ordered it from Free Record Shop a few months ago already. Probably won't get delivered before noon, if it even does get delivered - Lots of snow everywhere I see!
