    D3 Release, which time zone will get it first?

    Since the time zones are different and the game will likely be released on midnight. What zone will get it first?

    I hope there actually will be midnight releases for the game ! Considering that Diablo 3 is Blizzard's red-haired stepchild. But interesting question . . . Sadly, the pirates will probably get it first :-(

    Probably going to be region based. I WOULD go to a midnight release somewhere for this, but I'll be pre-ordering the CE (if there is one). Unless there are going to be goodies given out...

    New Zealand (GMT+12) generally releases a lot of time-embargoed things first. There are a few timezones ahead of us (Chattam Islands is +12:45, and I think there's a few others ahead of that) but those places are small (no gaming stores), uninhabited or don't have electricity.

    We get WoW expansions before anyone else, but that doesn't matter as the servers aren't up.

    New Zealand first, Hawaii last. California will actually be one of the last places on earth to get D3, which I think is ironic.

    They did that in the US with Cata. All US timezones (possible others I'm not sure) went live at 12am PDT. Being on the east coast I had to wait till 3am for the new content to go live... At least it gave me a few hour nap.

    timezones ?
    who worries about timezones ?

    download it from blizzard's site
    you can start playing one minute after release no matter where you live

    you can always go buy a box collector's edition later
