    No worrying about losing the disc, you can install the game anywhere with an internet connection and so on. Especially the "no worrying about losing disc" part is what I like the most.

    I'd go to a midnight release if my schedule allows it. I'd prefer to have the physical copy of the game so I can add it to my little collection :P

    Unfortunately, I'm not pushed enough to purchase EotN JUST to add it to my "collection", so if I can't go a midnight release, I'll definitely try to get a direct download or a pre-order.

    EDIT: Pre-order as in, pre-order the game and pick it up when I can.

    I'll probably pre-order the game in the same store, like I always do. Then, I'll go grab it as soon as I leave work that day!

    I'm going to set aside time for the release date for a midnight release, hopefully a collectors edition. I have faith that GW2 is going to be around a long time and I want to be able to say years from now, "Yeah, I was one of the first, original players." I've never been so hyped for another MMO, not Rift, Conan, Aion, Tera, or even SWTOR have gotten me so hyped.

    I love having games in physical versions.

    I have all 4 World of Warcraft in the original box, Aion in steel version and then a lot of other games, all on my desk.

    I'll reserve it at a local gaming store and do a midnight release... but not gamestop. They're a bunch of soulless, unprofessional, assholes (at least the stores in my area).

    GW2 will be the first game ever that I buy at release day (the WoW addons don't count), and the first time I get a collector's edition. For now I dont know how I'll get it though, depends if there are different pre order bonuses (which I hope not, because it's stupid). If there are though, I will choose accordingly. It absolutely has to be physical, and I need to have it on day one. Preferably earlier, so nothing can go wrong ;p

    My own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

    Midnight release, be it digital download or good ol' fashioned box. Depends on how big it is for the digital download, though.
