Yeah I want to reserve some names as well, particularly ones that are dear to my heart. Though, I don't mind if I don't get to, as the names I come up with are usually pretty cool (to me) and sound okay. It'd be nice to get the simple names though, that way for all of gw2ternity you can be that guy; the guy who prevented 1000s of people from getting their first choice name.
3 hours earlier just means ANet will be sitting at their command center, watching and using a counter to see how many people are trying to connect, and when it hits a certain number and they're done laughing, they'll open it at 3 AM.
What do you know? For once, I may be thrilled when my baby wakes me up between midnight and 1 AM.
I think they're doing this to spread out the load of people logging on at the same time. Not everyone reads forums or blogs, so many people may still think servers won't be up until the original time they said. Good move by ArenaNet IMO.
