We’re aware that some retailers have started selling Hellgate: London a day early. While the game had shipped to stores, they were not supposed to start selling copies until Wednesday, October 31st. This means that while some people have been able to get their hands on the game a day early, they aren’t able to get onto the multiplayer servers. This is because we are not starting the "official" service until Halloween. We apologize for any inconvenience and frustration that has been caused trigger-happy stores. When the servers go live, we’ll make sure to post a notice on www.hellgatelondon.com and www.flagshipstudios.com so that there is no confusion. Thanks for your support of the game and we’ll see you online very soon! The Hellgate: London Team

Hey everyone. Sorry for the short notice, but in the next 15 minutes or so at 1:30PM PDT, you'll be able to hop into the game and start creating characters. At 5:00PM PDT, the game will open up to everyone else

That's on their frontpage. Amazing.

These devs are truly masters of communication.

Time and time again throughout the beta I've been impressed with the clarity of the information.

Yea, no, that's still up there. Servers open for everyone at 5pm pacific. Like, I've been around the block on these MMO releases (and it's an MMO if Guild Wars is) so I'm used to things not working right. What I'm not used to is a release where things seem to work right technically and five different people in the PR department are insisting they're NOT working right in five different ways.

Well I am also playing at this very minute. Online, on Shulgoth.

My gamestop Preorder shipped last night at like 11pm and showed up at around 4pm today.

Oh, nice. So I try to log in with my beta install since it was on my other comp (I transferred the installer over to my main machine since I'd uninstalled in anticipation of EA not being retarded) but I only see Shulgoth and can't log into it. So I see that if that happens you need to uninstall and reinstall. Which I do, log in, patch up... most of the way. Most of the way because it crashed and will not initialize now. Jesus Christ.

This is irrelevant, it's a launch day.

With my beta install I was able to patch and login into Shulgoth and create three characters.  Still waiting on my stupid online purchase download.  I'm playing the beta right now so it's not all bad.

I even have my retail code already.  Of course I have no where constructive to put it!

Really.  I'm at work.  But I can't stop laughing every time I read a post about this EA download thing.

The EA download sounded like such a good idea when I preordered it.  Of course I was probably high as fuck, at least that's my story.

My timer hasn't changed the expected release time since I downloaded it last night.  It's down to 4 hours now (doesn't count minutes), so 9 p.m. PST is the time I'm expecting it to unlock.

So for real, what the fuck.

I did not sign up for a beta account

Am I supposed to be able to play? yes/no?

Mine said 12am CDT too until I rebooted and restarted the download manager.  Last I looked it said 12pm CDT on the 31st.  I'm not at home, I wonder what it says now?!   this guy looks legit

If you want to play online you need an account, and as far as I know the only way to have an account at the moment is through ye olde beta.

Irrelevant anyway, fucking BestBuy.

Call store #2:  Some black chick "computer says 10/31"  me:  I know that is the official street date, many stores have gotten the game early.  "computer says 10/31" me: would it be possible for you to take this one step beyond reading the computer for my benefit? "computer sa.." fuck it, nevermind.

That dyekit better be pretty fucking badass.  Also, we need a gamestore franchise that doesn't fucking suck.

Lol, wish I'd read all this before I started the DL. EBGames in the area all told me they thought they would get it but didn't, so I did the download. Just finished 4 hours of downloading, to find a 15 hour timer.

Uh...jesus.  Halo 3 at least had the class to have a Midnight Release of their product, meaning you could play right away once the clock rolled over to the ship date, and theirs wasn't even downloadable!  What is this fucking 8 am PST on the 31st bullshit?  I should be able to play as soon as it fucking ticks over to the 31st.

See thread subject.

Edit: What the *FUCK*? When you go to download the manual you download the manuals for every fucking region? A 32 meg download when all you need is a 3 meg download.  Granted, this is after downloading 6.8 gigs, but shit.

I have considered it, but then I remember how every real game store ends up being a business failure or MTG-tournament stench-hole.  Online is the way to go, but if I opened one I have a feeling you guys would still bitch me out on Release Day.  awesome, for real
