    You are right Mythic is in Fairfax. So maybe for me 5am. Who know what the higher ups at EA will do. Maybe they want to be up and have thier coffee before letting it lose. Only EA or EA/Mythic can really answer this.

    It'd be nice if they started selling codes at 12:01 am EST. I'd be more than willing to stay up late to get my code so I can log in tomorrow morning after server up and get a little exploring in before work.

    Ok?
    Why would a company on the east coast USA go with GMT as their standard? Their local time would make more sense.

    I was not aware of that. GMT would be nice but somehow I doubt they'll be using that as the official release time. I'm betting it won't be on the site until tomorrow morning when they come into the office after a long weekend and have had that first cup of coffee and a doughnut.

    Because when you run a game across multiple time zones, it makes sense to tailor your service to those time zones? Not that I expect it happen, mind, but I'm always happy to be pleasantly surprised!

    I can't actually stay awake any more now; it's 1.35am here and I have to get up to get the kids off to school. I was kinda hopin' to have it ready to log into when they're gone in the morning, but no such luck, I guess :(

    You know they probably need to have warm bodies in the CS chairs of UO Gamecodes and EA website when the inevitable happens...


    :Spits coffee on monitor:

    Haa. did I just say warm bodies and Customer Service in the same sentence? I must give myself twenty lashes!

    While I understand what you're saying, in this case it just doesn't make sense. For a company with most of it's staff (for this game at least) on the east coast of the US, it seems to me they would use that time zone to coincide with having people at their desks to handle the problems that will happen during launch.

    And to me it makes sense to have support staff across your time zones. Picky, I know, but that's just me!

    This means that UO SA will be launched one day later.

    My issue with this is that EA doesn't seem to give to rats butts about this...I go to the EA site and there is not a damn thing about the SA expansion - nothing....I'm okay with not being able to buy it right away (I am at work) but they should be promoting how big this is and what a great expansion...

    Mythic deserves more support from EA than this...

    You guys really did a great job with this client so I can imagine how awesome the new content will be

    Well as usual EA Japan has the information we are missing. Shards to come down at 10 AM EST for a 3 hour maintenance.

    Thanks Japan!! :thumbup:

    No Thanks to the USA guys who continually deny the community any information.:thumbdown:

    We are bringing the shards down for their final maintenance period before the launch of Stygian Abyss. Shortly Stygian Abyss will be available through the EA Store and through UO gamecodes. Keep an eye out here for announcement.
