I'm happy to see a release date, but one working day before Christmas? How is that not an utterly retarded time to release a new MMO? It doesn't exactly give them much leeway. If something unexpected crops up as often happens with MMO launches, then either their staff will have to work over Christmas or everyone will be screwed until the middle of the week after.

While I agree with you 100% on the release, how is Tuesday one working day from Christmas which is on Sunday of that week?

Am I missing something?

Europe perhaps? It says Dec 22nd in Europe. Granted that's 2 working days.

Then again maybe he's taking work holidays into account. I know some Swiss companies (and others) that take the Christmas holiday season very seriously.
