Hi,

 

Just wondering if everyone feel ok with the game official open on Jan/19 ?

 

January 19, 12:01am EST/5am UTC: Blade & Soul launches and Founder’s Pack sales end

 

Really ... 12am ?

 

Thanks,

Yeah, seems fine with me. Should be a time when most people who want to play the game are home for those crucial first hours. You want them to do it at 10am or something? I think a time like that would cause more scheduling conflicts, not less.

It's fine for me.

Most of the game have launch at midnight.

Ppl who wanna play will w8 but most will log in next day so less que.

And tbh you shd be rdy that first 2 hours you probably will have trouble to even login and get to character creation...

Blade & Soul will be launching on 19th January 5AM GMT!

If you own any Founder's Packs, you'll be able to access the game early during our Head Start period starting 15th January 15th 6PM GMT.

Those with Disciple and Master Packs will also be able to reserve their character and name on January 11th. EU Servers will open at 6:00PM GMT, and NA servers will open at 6:00PM PST.

It's pretty typical. I graduated college a while back, so I'm no longer able to stay up until midnight to then play a video game for hours - at least not on a work night. xD But hey, that just means when I do get around to playing, the problems are generally... somewhat resolved!

Welp...I use another time zone...So midnight would be like 18:00 for me.

You guys should check current time zone where you live, to make sure when server will be available for you.

and if you want to play before midnight, then buy any Founder Pack.  ;)

Because Head Start begins January 15, (10am "PST" / 6pm "UTC").

I think that most people in forum bought some Founder Pack, for this they don't care lol.

Sorry my english.  :rolleyes:

This is very standard for new MMO or expansion launches - I'm not sure why you are surprised unless this is your first MMO?  Anyways, another reason to be a founder - founders will be sleeping while the servers implode at midnight on general launch day :p

Nah, I'll be up for the three days of headstart and then sleep for 10 hours when the servers go down, then be back for more on official release.

Pretty sure every mmorpg i've ever played launched at 12:01am est (even games like ff11 that were based out of japan did it) so yeah not sure what your issue with the time is.

Let's be real. Most of the player base will be kids. They'll be at school blaming their teachers and stealing the pencil-cases from their classmates to vent the rage. Hence the hour complaint.

They are not necessarily going down - that time between when head start officially ends and F2P begins is only *in case* they need to be brought down (for issues to be fixed before launch) as a CYA legally for selling 3 day headstart in the founders packs - this was confirmed by Julianne (NcSoft Brand Manager - one of the people you always see on the streams.)  And why would you want to be playing when the servers will do nothing but lag out for 3 hours...lol.

It's perfect. All the hard core players who play all day and all night drinking red bull and doritos will get a big head start and be out of my way when I wake up at a normal hour ready to start playing. Me and all the normal people will have ourselves a nice relaxing and enjoyable time while those folks tick days off their lives worrying over who will be first to max level only to spend the next 6 months complaining because there's nothing else to do until the next update.

Sounds like a plan. Everyone in headstart should have at least one 45 by official launch.
