    What are your plans for the day of release? Be it the 25th or 28th!

    I'm looking forward to the release, knowing my characters will remain this time. Only played one BETA weekend as I didn't want to spoil anything for myself and knowing my progress would be deleted sucks.

    Me and another friend who pre-purchased are having a LAN at my house. Seeing as servers go live at 12noon in the UK we plan on playing till like 9pm, then going to get a biggg bucket of kfc, energy drinks and beer. Coming back and playing until we fall asleep. Same goes for Sunday, gonna be playing all day!

    With that said, what plans do YOU have? :-)

    Wake up early, since headstart starts at 9 am here.

    Then I'll lock my room's door and put this on my door's handle:

    probably what I did for cata's release, sleep until 30 mins before servers go up, get prepared, and game till I drop! although a LAN party sounds pretty damn cool as well.
    wrong game ;D

    1. Hop in team-speak 1 h r - 30 mins before servers open to chat it up with friends.
    2. Rush and save all my names.
    3. Remake my ranger with saved name.
    4. Completely ignore all responsibility for the next 5 hours/years.

    What? This is the GW2 forum bro, not MoP

    Since the head start begins on the weekend at 1AM I guess i'll stay up and play until I get tired and play all day and night the next day. I'll have lots of ice cold water and jugs of iced tea in the mini fridge next to me to keep me going

    It's 10? I just checked the website again.. it's 00;20 and it says they'll be live in 12 days, 11 hours and 39 minutes. I'm from Nottingham, so that makes it 12 to me!?

    ... I lol'd.




    Anyways, my plans at 12:01 am on the 25th: spam log in to make characters. Ugly as sin, just make them if only to hold my names that I want. Log out. Go to bed. Wake up, go to work. Come home. Recreate characters with my saved names, as I want them to look. Enjoy the lessened rush of the starting zones now that a) servers are moderately stabilized, and b) some of the zerg has gone to bed or already moved onto harder zones. Seeing as there's not really a rush to 80, I think I'll be okay keeping this pace until my first day off (the 29th).

    Same, nameholding is priority. I have four names I want, and one that I sorta want but likely wont get.

    Ah well, such is life =3

    I plan on spending A LOT of time making a character. Basically I want to decide on a race, I will probably make a Charr or Sylvari (maybe human). I have to look at all the animations and how they look in gear before I finalize what I am going to play as.

    It's at 00:00 at -7GMT, Dont feel like looking up what timezone Nottingham is but should be easy enough for you to do the conversion yourself.

    Myself I'll probably be pokeing the login server constantly for at least the hour befor the servers are scheduled to go live. While 3 of my character names are reserved I have 2 different 1 word names I'd like to get if possible. I've got backups if those fail but going to try for em, have the class and appearance of those two all worked out so can make them up in a minute or so. Considering their habbit on the BWE's of haveing the servers open an hour early I'm not going to risk them pullin that and me missin a name because of it

    the thing i like about GW2 is no end game i am going to pvp when i can and explore i have no goal to hit as soon as a can and no need to get it as fast as i can. think skyrim but having other players to chat with in pve or just a good on war for pvp.

    If there is no raid testing on the 25th I'll be up right at release going for two days or until raid testing interrupts me.
