The Guild Wars 2 headstart begins Friday night … sometime. Servers go live at the strike of midnight, Pacific … or up to three hours earlier.
I don’t mind staying up until midnight or waking up at 3am so I can reserve my character names. I do object to needing to camp the login screen for those three hours.
If you’re a player committed to getting in first to grab that character name of your dreams you’ll want to be keeping an eye on things during that time period.
Can we get the name of the person who thought that was a good idea?
Update: servers actually went live exactly three hours early, at the stroke of 9pm PDT. And then I ended up staying up most of that time anyway, making characters and bouncing around the newbie zones.
