    It really is. Luckily I have set aside quite a few tasks that will take up quite a lot of the day. Things like cleaning my bathroom, and making a lavish dinner for the evening.

    Combine that with the last few attempts at Daddy Bronjahm Big-sack and I think the day should move at a steady pace. At least I hope so.

    I'll be waiting for the servers to explode when the expansion launches.

    Cinematics should leak early from foreign sites, I think.

    How so? Release is global, everybody gets it at the same time.

    The joy of a midnight release means I can simply ignore it go sleep, to wake up early and play when the servers will have stabilised.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Or conversely you wake up and loads of players have had the same idea, leading the servers to be more unstable than when they initially opened.

    Regardless I will stay awake for the actual launch, nothing quite beats that initial high you get from waiting for that first quest to be available. It might not be the best first impression when you are tired from being excited so long, nor is it a particularly good questing experience when so many are on the same quests at the same time, but it is an experience that cannot really be replicated outside the actual launch.

    Does that include cutscenes? I heard there is one cutscene in Oribos which will explain when the machine of Death broke and, since this is the main catalyst for the entire expansion, I am intrigued by that.

    (By cutscene, I mean the weird/cheap cutscenes made with the in-game models)

    Same here, my body simply can not stand being awake after midnight, I need a guild that ends their raiding at 22 cause that's the latest I can be up lol.

    BfA midnight release was very smooth. Sharding helped a ton.
    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing...

    That didn't happen in Legion or BFA so it won't happen this time either. It's a global release mate, no one has access to the cinematics other than Blizzard until they get triggered in game for the first time.

    Also helped that we weren't in the same zones. Not only were Alliance/Horde on seperate continents but also you could pick any of the 3 zones of that continent. We also didn't worry about a scenario intro because we've all already done it due to early access weeks before the release. Shadowlands is opening with the Maw, followed by everyone being in Bastion and following the same linear zone order after that. We haven't had a launch like this since MoP with everyone being in Jade Forest. I'd be very surprised if the launch was as smooth as Legion or BFA were, but I do imagine they'll be putting Classic's layering tech to use so it won't be another WoD launch.

    All cutscenes have already been available on the beta, just with a red cross over them saying WIP. Oribos thing is a cinematic that is yet to be seen, not a cutscene, the interview did some poor wording if they actually wrote cutscene.

    I see, then it must have certainly been my mistake.

    Well then, I can't wait for the in-game cinematic where it's revealed when the machine of Death broke.

    Classic's layering is just a variation of Sharding which was introduced in WoD. And WoD had everybody in the same zone as well before they split off to Frostfire and Shadowmoon. Problems didn't really happen until you had to zone into your Garrison, so i don't expect many issues here, especially due the lack of scenarios involved.
