It is almost unreal that after a year of playing, first in Alpha, then in Beta 1, Beta 2, Beta 3 and then Beta 4, launch is finally upon us.
Over the last year (almost) i have posted about 30 bug reports - and waited eagerly for each phase of beta to start in order to get in and play. Now that the being able to log in any time I want, play when I want is upon us, it feels most strange.
I am like a kid on christmas eve (and thats a big deal for a man of 38 years old). I have had some fantastic experiences in my life, I am a married man with three children so I have to keep things in perspective - I have been more excited about things in my life but for me there is very little I ever have to wait for. The last year has been painful.
I am at a family BBQ at server up time tomorrow (7pm for me in Australia) but by 9pm (server permitting) I will be online in Ultros and playing my heart out. I wonder how late I can stay up before i go to bed......it doesnt matter - because I can log in the next day, and the next day, and the next day.....
