Bioware, taking half the day off on Launch day??

Seems kind of odd to spend 100+ million dollars and several years creating this game to then decide to take half the day off on Launch day...

Anyone else think this is a little strange?

Last wave for the day went out at 12pm PST? Even in CST where Bioware is located its only 2pm.

Those with access to the game. Keep your rude comments to yourself and go play already

And yet what you dont understand is that the majority of the people will not begin to login to the game servers untill 4+pm est. People do go to work and school.

Yep, their entire staff was pretty much just chillin today at the "send invites" button waiting and laughing about how long it'll be til the next time they push it. Now they figure they're bored of that game and are going home to drink martinis and laugh some more at you. Tomorrow they'll come in late and do nothing but sit around and look at the "send invites" button too.

Oh, and just to be clear, that's the ENITRE STAFF, as in the people that monitor servers, everything. They're all doing that.

They're in Texas! They're putting their boots on and going down to the local honky tonk.

Not all of the people they sent invites to are even on yet. They are waiting on peak hours (when people get off work) to see where they sit with server stability.

They are going about it safely.

As said, this isn't launch.

I have no idea why people seem to think so.
