From The Lodestone:

At 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21 (PST), players who purchased the FINAL FANTASY XIV Collector's Edition will have the opportunity to log into World servers over a week in advance of the official service launch. We wish those lucky adventurers the best of travels through the exciting realm of Eorzea.

I'm just afraid I won't get my name. I couldn't get it in beta, so I was hoping I could get in on a new server... With pre-orders already shipped abroad and some people already have them... chances seem nil.

(I won't say the name here, but know, it was awesome)

Hint: It's Wednesday the 22nd in Japan right now.

While it might have been more "fair" to launch at the same time everywhere, it's probably better for server load that they picked the "same" date for everyone, so that the spikes will be buffered by the time zones.

Every little bit helps I suppose :D

I completely agree. I can't pick up my copy until 10AM tomorrow, then half an hour to drive home and half an hour to install. That's 15 hours of lost gameplay... lol...
