I've already got my launch night routine set out: a nice early night, to be well rested for playing the next day without the hassle of trying to log in on launch night.

My launch nigh will involve picking up my physical CE box, installing it, repatching and going to bed, while watching some of the accompanying blu-ray disc, then playing a bit for the next couple of days - I have too many meetings that week :(.

FWIW, the Cataclysm launch was extremely smooth. Surprisingly few people actually go out and quest the instant midnight hits, so it's actually way more crowded if you don't start until morning. Logging in right at midnight isn't necessary because the expansion-prep patch is already in place and the server just flips a switch. Don't let Diablo III's launch discourage you, those guys have a completely different system.

IIRC you do have to log out and back in to be able to gain XP.

o.O

Not my experience. Midnight launch was hell on the server I was on. Some people couldn't even get in for 45 minutes and the scads of people running about was insane when it was a drop quest.

The server restarts (at least it did for Cataclysm), so you will have to log in again.

Didn't restart for us. The login server got crushed, but the realm server was up the whole way. They didn't even have to restart to fix the bug that left xp switched off for the first 30 minutes.

GC on hos tweeter said if everything works as planned as soon as it is live time the entire server will switch live on the fly.

Same. Initial zone as crowded that finding 11 nagas took me something like 20 minutes. I just gave up at some point and just went istancing to get away from the starting area.
Also server didn't crash at all, but as they said, you needed to do a relog to "activate" Cata, and that simply destroyed the login servers. Took me a good 30 mins to log back in game despite being logged at 24.00.


offtopic: Can't believe it's already 7 years I play this game. Time is passing fast.

Did it an hour ago, Horde side.

Nothing fancy, a couple minibosses, one with a "down the totem" mechanic, the other with a "dodge the canon" thing. It's a good way to kill 30 minutes, even better than dungeons. Now, I'd have to sent a ilvl-appropriate alt to try...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.
