Its released at the same time everywhere because of world first titles calm your tits bro
Europe time should they cater to me. No not in the slightest stop taking it personally
It's not like the US will get much more playtime, I imagine most of the US players will have a full day of work and just some hours in the evening to play anyway. EU players will have a full day of work and then an hour or 2 until it's ready. It's really not as big a deal as some people are making it out to be.
And I wasn't taking it personally, I even said earlier it's a minor issue. The argument that Trion should do what fits them best is horrible as they are both "employed" by the players and also the least inconvenienced party by having them selfs get up a couple of hours early one day per 1,5 years to launch an expansion.
Check this out... Trion is based in Redwood City, CA. They are a North American company that happens to allow its game to be played globally. Your not going to please everyone so if you live in the good old USA then you get uninterrupted access for the day. I would recommend Australia and other Nations in the EU get some companies to develop their own dope games so they can launch in their country of choice in the timeframe determined.You do realize that US gets the entire day uninterrupted while central EU gets the servers up at 19:00 at best right, while being a minor inconvenience for Trion to start work early by a couple of hours EU would get more relevant time while US remain unaffected, Aussies are always shafted and a minority.
O, and that asinine comment to have Trion come in a few hours early. I've worked for software companies. Those boys probably haven't had real sleep in weeks.
No one said not to have US customers. They just need to wait a few hours. I don't think Notch gives a sh* that I get a full 8 hour experience when a minecraft update drops from Sweden. But we're all dirty Americans right?HAHAHHAHA...even worse argument, lets not have non US customers, you go girl.
Lets all sum this up. You know why Trion is releasing its game when it is? Cause it can..
Umm this thread is almost redundant now since the xpac drops like real soon. Conclusion is that regardless when it launches someone somewhere will be inconvenienced by the time, yeah it sux but in a week it will be forgotten.
I think it's best to close this before it becomes a time zone vs time zone argument. (There's a new one)
