    Headstart servers may be online for up to 3 hours too early.

    This is from the latest Arenanet blogpost.

    Pre-Purchase with 3-Day Headstart: Everyone who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 will enjoy three full days of Headstart Access. The three-day Headstart Access will officially begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 25th. However, please note that in order to ensure that we’re fully prepared for that fateful hour we may bring servers online up to 3 hours prior. If you’re a player committed to getting in first to grab that character name of your dreams you’ll want to be keeping an eye on things during that time period.
    Make sure to set your alarm clocks early!

    Indeed. It's nice being from the same state/timezone as the devs.

    So that turns a reasonable 7am into an unreasonable 4am.

    Thanks, ANet -_-

    Increasing the amount of crazy required to get names first is good for the pro crazy like us.
