    Please enlighten us what country that the thousands of "non Americans" are from that work in America are from

    It's kinda weird that they centred the map on Paris and not the Greenwich meridian, thus causing more than half the world to be on the day before the "release date" when SL drops.

    No it's not. US servers are much more dead in general than EU servers. EU is the majority.
    There is literally no evidence that backs that up. The last time a server count was done, US servers had 2 million more players than EU servers.

    If it’s as easy as EN then the race will be over in a day

    Wish they would have just announced this date originally. Holiday time off has been closed for almost 2 months at work... guess once again all the no-life losers will get fully geared before i even get to max level. Such is the best part of expansion launches - watching your friends decline you from groups because they blitz'd the content in 4 days.

    OT: The timing has potential to suck for Blizz devs, but I'm personally stoked that at least we have a date and it's before December.

    Maybe they should have done a better job then? The execs might have delayed it but the execs aren't the ones creating it. I say this as someone who actually played vanilla.

    Do the low pay Blizzard software developers and test teams work on November 24 and 25?

    A normal person takes that two days off and travels to see their family.

    The vast majority of their employees work in America. (Especially considering they keep closing international offices and laying people off in EU). Customers aren't the only people a company needs to worry about.

    No it's not. There may be less people on at that time but sales will be the same.

    TBF every country has stupid holidays.
    Tho thinking that US holiday is a KEY factor in releasing AFTER A DELAY is a lul. World does not revolve around US. WoW is not an exception

    Wow, what an Edgelady. Death is fair. Death is the ultimate fair institution in the world as everyone dies, rich and poor alike. This sounds like someone quoting from "Baby's First Philosophy."

If they're this close to release then the beta is a pretty good representation of the expansion.
    Source please. It should be pretty easy to produce.
