    Confirmed: early start between 8 and 9PM PST

    A reliable unnamed source say that the team will start the official final power cycle of all servers at 8PM.
    Once they have all been checked and verified, login systems will be booted internally and checked.
    After this the window to the login servers for the head start preorders will be activiated.

    This entire process has been through many dry runs at the company and takes between 20-60 minutes.
    So we could see live servers anywhere between 8:20 and 9PM.

    I'll be reserving names at 8:15 with an end around pass into the cache servers....
    Wait. Wow? People still play that game? ummm. ok.

    if by "reliable but unnamed source" you mean the email anet sent to pretty much everyone, then you are right.

    Meh, I'm going to bed anyways. I take pride in knowing I won't be one who helps break the servers. :P

    That e-mail of yours says midnight, not 8/9 just so you know.

    "Hey everyone! Mike Ferguson here at Arena HQ! Overall, things are mostly quiet and relaxed here. There are still some people working hard to make sure everything is going to be as smooth as possible once we open the floodgates in just a few short hours, but most of us are here just hanging out and relaxing for a little bit while we wait for when we turn everything on and start letting people in. There are a lot of laughs and smiles around the office, quite a few of us are reminiscing about things we've experienced over the last five years, and many of us are just trying to soak up as much of the atmosphere as possible and eagerly anticipating the fact that we're so close to finally letting you all experience what we've been working on for so long. Only a few short hours to go, and we're counting down just as eagerly as you are! See you all in Tyria soon!
    Ferg"

    "The three-day Headstart Access will officially begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on 25 August. 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."

    0:00am minus 3 hours equals midnight? O_o

    or am i actually missing something here?

    So if I pre-purchased and did not get any email like that - should I be concerned?

    0:00am is Midnight (12AM) and also 24:00.

    Midnight PST is the release. Could be as early as 9PM when the servers come online if Anet is ahead of schedule. Or if they love us that much.
