I work one month on one off at sea, and I’ve got a huge college phase coming up which lasts from mid april until August so I’m probably fucked anyway.

Man, I would love to take a few days off at launch. I must admit though that I'm currently switching to a 36 hour job (from 40), which allows me to work 9 hours on 4 days, allowing me to take an extra day of weekend! Wife will be working, kids will be at the grand parents (they love to babysit!) so that will give me the opportunity to play ALL day. Such luxury! It was pretty hard finding 'me-time' before, so I am really looking forward to this! :-)
Dude, as a new parent myself (1 year old) I know exactly what you are talking about and I'm stoked for you to have that all day situation. That just sounds like the dream. Enjoy it!

Don't have kids until after Classic moves into legacy Cataclysm servers. Got it. :lol:

I’ll most likely take around 3 weeks off for Classic.
But only because I saved up over 2 months of paid leave so I can still go on a proper vacation later.
3 weeks!? Two months!? Are you European? Lol, in any case I hope you have an awesome vacation outside of WoW. Super jelly.
Yeah EU reporting in.
Working 40h a week I receive 25 vacation days a year. Certain projects get the overtime refunded 1:1 to use at a later time. After a while I noticed I was hitting 500 hours of paid leave.

Damn dude, I'm fresh out of hours. I am always trying to go on holidays every year haha. Plus since work closes for 2 weeks over Christmas, nearly half my leave is taken up by that every year.

I tried telling them I wanted to take 2 weeks off for Classic. They told me I had to schedule my time off in January and that they didn't really care about my game launch. So I've decided to quit the job entirely, find a new one and take a month off in the process.
Now that's, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call dedication.

I actually kind of liked the idea of one of you guys, to postpone going all-in for a week or two. The reasons are numerous, first of them being potential lag in the starting zones due to overcrowd or the necessity to level in separate instances (sharding). Neither of these options seem too appealing, at least to me. And they are prone to solve themselves more or less in a couple of weeks.

On the other hand though, there is hype. Ya'll gonna be out there in the world, discussing and sharing experiences. Probably would not be able to resist the temptation to join, even though the circumstances for the first steps might be kind of tantalizing.

Resistance is futile, there is no way you can stay away from classic wow for 2 weeks after launch.

I would love to do this, but I'd rather spend my vacation days on something else. Don't get me wrong, I bet it's pretty cool to nolife the game for a week or two but I don't think it's for me:)

It really sounds stupid to anyone who isn't playing WoW, but it really is important to me. I've been waiting for this for over a year and a half now. I have no real life commitments, I've worked hard and organized my life around this event, and they tell me they don't care so I just work around that too :lol:.

I might take a day or two off, but I'm not sure it's worth it. In BfA, one or two days meant you probably hit 120, and then started grinding dungeons. In Classic, that might mean you are level 30 or so. I don't want to rush this time around.

Wife and I are hopefully going to ship the kids to relatives for a week or so. Hope to line up some baby sitters too for the next week :)

As an educator with NO summer vacations lined up for the first time in like 6 years, the timing could not be more perfect! :)

Yep 4-5 weeks off! Problem is my boss wants me to set my weeks at the latest 31st of April, so I really hope we get a release date soon!

Probably will end up taking a week off for release, I'm hoping they give us some dates soon so that I can schedule it.

Naw, I don't mind being behind the pack. I think even just playing a couple hours after work and on the weekends I'm going to be juggling alts to try to keep rest up while leveling.

My best friend who recently got married has literally said he won't have kids until some time after Classic. Luckily his wife was pretty understanding and seemed cool with it. :lol:

I'm glad I'm not alone.
Everyone at work lol'd at me when I told them I would do a 4 week holiday the day Classic releases.
Currently in the process of buying an apartment so I know I'm not going anywhere this summer anyways.

Deadline is 1st of May and until then I'm going with July 15 placeholder for the possibility of a ''Osconty July '' release.

I'm taking a week off for classic. My friends and I are going to try and get ahead of the curve and there will probably never be more people online than there will be during the first week and I want to experience that.

I'll be taking the week after release. Assuming it drops on a Tuesday, it'll give them five or so days to work on the server issues/bugs that always pop up, and some time for the more dense zones to clear out.

Yes. I'm stressed as fuck. Especially considering I may have a role change in the near future. I will be locking down 2 weeks off the day the release date is announced.

I still got 6 vacation days from last year that will expire on the 6th of June... I'd be damned delighted if Classic releases before that, but I guess my hope is in vain lol. I'm getting 20 more vacation days as well btw and only got 10 days of vacation planned for november.
So HELL YEAH I'm taking some time off.

I'm hoping to take a 4 day weekend around the release.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.

I'm gonna try and drop a week of leave starting the day Classic releases, depending on how the timing and weekend placement works out I might stretch that out a bit longer. No-lifing it as much as I can, if I can hit 60 (unlikely) in the first 7-9 days that'd be great but I'm not gonna stress to much about it.


Day one is going to be crazy and I really don't want to miss it. If Launch o'clock is in the middle of the night I'll drag myself out of bed and login as soon as I'm able.

Luckily I work for a very large insurance company. So as long as you have to time, you can take it off. I'm also buying a house in October, so no vacations planned for a whole year means a ton of time saved up for me!

I'll definitely take 1 week. Most likely 2. And depending on how that all goes... maybe I'll be "sick" that 3rd week lol.

Now to just find someone to watch my dog for 7 days...
