You misunderstood me, woowoo. I was talking about when clients can start playing BF3. As I've said in so many places, our servers will all be up before this.

btw - bf3 = 3am East Coast, midnight Pacific.
correct, being in SD (MST) mine shows as:
"Your release date will be: Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 01:00"
