Are you hardcore enough to defend the president?!

.... or at least to give up your Saturday morning sleep-in to be among the first on the early release?

I've been thinking about setting an alarm.

But.... I like sleep too much.

I'm going to either:

A - Goto bed really early and wake up at 2AM.

B - Pull an all nighter.

I'm just going to let myself go full nocturnal for a few days I already go to bed around 4am or 5am, and I've gotten as bad as going to bed around 10 or 11 am everyday.

If I didn't have to work Saturday morning, I'd totally do it.

But since I work alone, I can't be useless. Somehow though, I suspect the game will still be there when I get home Smiley: wink

I'll be going to bed early and getting up at 4 AM CDT to make sure I'll get on Hyperion without problem. It'd be devastating if I can't get my FC up and running because I'm locked out.

Sadly, I have to get up early Saturday to do non-FFXIV stuff. But, from about 2 or 3 in the afternoon, I will be there.
Got: Iced tea, pretzel chips, fig newton slims (coconut/choc that smell and taste like girl scout samoa cookies), leftovers carefully packaged for fast microwaving, various fruit, and a girlfriend who's going away overnite Saturday with a bachelorette party thing.

I think we're going with the alarm method? At least, I will be.. I think my husband may be doing the "Stay up all night" thing.. I prefer alarms.. at least I can take some meds and go to sleep early to wake up. Of course, we're East Coast, so it won't be as bad as some of you guys?

Gonna get up early, log in, and fire up my BBQ. My plan is to smoke a few pounds of pork shoulder throughout the day while getting my Eorzea on.

Launch time in Australia is 7pm so absolutely perfect.

Problem is I currently have other plans until around 8:30pm but I am trying to get out of them.

I'm taking 5 mg of melatonin and passing out. My alarm is still set for 4:30 just like with open beta. Staying up all night is no fun. I don't want to crash.

Scratch my earlier plan, Going to bed early = To hard(even with passion flower). Pulling an all nighter to enjoy a game = To tired to fully enjoy.


New plan. Pull an all nighter TONIGHT! Goto bed at 2pm tommarow! And wake up at 10pm-12am Tommarow. Enough time to get all excited and prepped for a long weekend of gaming!

I hear the hardest part of cooking pork shoulder is getting the skin to crisp without turning the rest of the pig into pig flavored dust.

I was able to get my classes on Tues. and Thurs. Smiley: nod I'm only a part-time student though (9 hours)

I'll be at my girlfriend's place this weekend, but I'm taking my PS3 with me. She's a gamer too so she's looking forward to seeing the game. I'm trying to pull her away from WoW to join me in this. We'll see lol. That being said, I probably won't be able to play the game until 3 or 4 pm cst. That won't be a bad thing with all of the people smashing the servers at the beginning.

I wanna pull an all nighter, but I know I should go to bed early and get up around 6am. I gotta work in the afternoon, and if I pull an all nighter I'll be worthless.

Release is on Friday at 11PM for me, so I plan to try and sleep as much as possible throughout the day and then wake up a bit before 11PM.

I have a freezer full of frozen pizzas, one of every bag of those flavored potato chips from Lays, and a huge can of powdered lemonade, so I'm good to go!

I'm gonna spend all weekend having fun and getting fat. Can't friggin wait!

I've decided to stay up all night tonight , part of the day tommarow, sleep then wake up just in time for release. This way I'm nice and rested at 2am. AND READY TO ROCK!


If things go wrong, I won't be tired and agitated from being up all night. Or from knowing I only got a few hours before being exhausted while wanting the servers to open up.

Very good point! Set alarm for 2 hours later and your fine :)

2 hours over a 3 day weekend shouldn't matter much :) God bless whatever the reason we have this Bank Holiday for.
