    Really planned on playing on Sanctum of Rall, but I don't know anyone going in.
    Got a couple work buddies who may come with me.

    Maybe I'll start my own guild. :3

    Probably my single biggest challenge will be getting a couple of names reserved ASAP

    I understand being excited for the game and getting to play but I do not understand the mad rush. It's not a race. About the only accommodation I will make for headstart is maybe go to bed a bit earlier Fri night, play some Sat am/reserve names before I head out for weekend plans like normal.

    Getting up at 5:45, an hour earlier than work days. T minus three hours occurs fifteen minutes after that, giving me sufficient time to make sure the cat has food and water (as I'll be gone the rest of the day) as well as make a nice, hot cup of coffee and some toast. After that it's a case of trying to log in every 5 minutes or so while watching Youtube videos. As soon as I can get online, skip character customization to reserve the names I want. Once they're all reserved, take the time to customize one character. Play for a bit. Then help my brother move the rest of the day.

    My plan of attack is ready. Your move, ArenaNet.

    The names I want already exist in HoM with 50/50

    It looks dark for me T_T

    I'll be testing my log in button as early as 11pm central Friday night. I'm hoping for the 3 hours early. XD

    Remember; You can have a last name too, a way I suggest doing it is making a second word after your name, maybe representing who you are, for an example, I will be doing 'Virral Scoots' to reserve my name, and 'Scoots Scoots' to reserve that.

    Really, a lot of people seem to be counting this 3days+3hours bit... we have no guarantee on the extra three hours. For me tho, that puts the release at 1pm Sat... so I'll likely just be waking up from a Friday night binge anyway.

    Damn cause your name is so cool! I wish I had stolen it first, I might have to break open the SoulCal wiki for some backup inspiration. Tyra forever!

    Actually, the fact that they even mentioned that they "may" open up the servers 3 hours early is almost a guarantee that they will. If they really wanted to alleviate the stress on the login servers, they wouldn't have said anything and just opened it up 3 hours early. The fact that they announced that they'll open it up early makes it a pretty smart PR move, one which gains goodwill for ANet from the players because they let them login early.

    Could start anywhere from 10 P.M to 12 A.M in my timezone.Gonna be rolling on Tarnished Coast.Haven't bothered looking for a guild before launch, but I'll probably accept the first random invite that comes my way.Gonna nap through most of tomorrow.My names are a bit obscure so I won't have to worry about them being taken.
    Still can't believe it's about to come out.

    Personally I will be working all day to try to get a stream up and running in time. My roomie and I plan to have ourselves a little party. We will probably stick to PvE only. We both just ordered new video cards so hopefully we don't run into any issues with installation of those. So excited and can't even pick a class!

    I'm in a guild that will be on Borlis Pass. Can't wait to meet and play with them.

    I'm tempted to start streaming on Own3d.TV. Everyone and their mom will be streaming GW2 on Twitch.TV. lol

    Did you check the cord connection? Maybe it's not in all the way. If push comes to shove, you can buy a cheap monitor at Best Buy or Walmart.

    Yeah the cords are fine, I just went afk for a while so the monitor went into standby mode, when I got back it started flickering. It did that for 20 minutes when it just started going black, if I turn it on and off, it stays on for about 2 seconds then goes black again.
