Does anyone know if the expansion will be available to download/play in the AM or PM?

Checking to see if it would be worth taking a day off.

I don't know when the typical patch downtime is, and that varies depending on where in the world you are anyway. But it's never ever a good idea to take time off for a games/content patch release. Your internet will explode, it will be postponed last minute, a meteor will hit your house, login will consistently fail and/or the download rate will be so terrible it takes all day. Never take time off for a game unless it's a physical copy.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

If past history is any indication, it is not worth taking a day off for an expansion. The patch will usually hit in the morning with extended downtime usually lasting longer than they first anticipated.

You obviously have never heard of Murphy's Law.

Just a few that are relevant.....

Quote:
Murphy's laws:

"If anything can go wrong, it will"

"If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong"

"If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway"

"If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something"

"It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious"

"Everything takes longer than it takes"

"If you want something bad enough, chances are you won't get it"
Simply choose all that fits your situation. But no, I would not take time off for the update. If you MUST, then install TeamViewer and do it remotely from your phone.

6am-12pm Central Time on the 22nd of Oct. (is my guess). Making 6:01am the official complaint and b*tch*ng time frame for people just trying to be complete pains with a few "Query: Are we there yet" comments added throughout the morning.

Also, there will be bugs. Possibly game breaking. Which is why I'm waiting a week to even do anything in Onslaught.

Did they say anything about how big the patch is going to be?

Just roughly

I feel like everyone has answered this already, but definitely do not take a day off. Maybe take the next day off if you want to, but day of is a pretty bad idea, as there is a pretty good chance it'll take all day to patch.

Downtime will probably start the same time it usually does but they might post it on friday. While there is a rare chance it won't get extended (at least one instance of that being true), it's almost always extended and servers are usually down at least half the day. Just like everyone else is saying, it's not worth it.

Take the day after off, not patch day. Patch days always suck
