u get to play on the 25th if u buy the game now right?
Only if you buy from GW2 official looks like:
Pre- order (standard edition) at retailer is 1 day headstart (27) but limitd is 3 days (25)
however i think digitally is 3 days for both.
Pre-purchase (you pay ALL up front) is 3 day head start, Pre-order (you put down deposit, pay remaining on launch day) is 1 day head start.
