We know some servers are up and some player are in but its just the load testing and any chars recreated may get deleted.

So how many hours before the real release? There are so many different people posted different times, hard to find the REAL time. (so the REAL time, and the time listed on Steam are different also)

Steam and the launcher says 8:00am (BST)
Trion Web site says 12:01am (EDT)

As said, Trion posted 12:01 EDT/ Steam says 8 EDT

Nobody should be taking Steam's word about launch time as they didn't make the game. Trion says it's Midnight, then it's midnight. So, 2 hours.

The official client says 8 am UK Time, Steam says in 5 hours.
The current time in UK is 3:12 am. These times both match up, so official release is 5 hr (well 4 hr 48 min)

When was this confirmed?
The official launcher still says 8am and steam says the game is still locked for another 5hr

Official launcher keeps giving me a "Patch error: Please try again later" warning when I press update. So my only download option is steam. That means even if they do launch in 1hr, unless they get steam to unlock the game, I will sont be able to start the downlaod till 8am BST

Steam says unlocks in 4, launcher says in 12.

Note, they are using different time zone standards.
Steam and the launcher says 8:00am (BST), so the Launcher and Steam match. (about 4 hrs from now) but the Trion Website says 12:01am (EDT) which is in little over 1hr from now.

Game downloading now using official launcher (had to run in admin mode)

Currently getting 2.2mb/s and will be done in just over 1hr

Debating whether go sleep and get up for it launching on steam, or stay up and hope the game launches as my download completes
