Sort of lame thread from a long time forum member, but I, along with many other Europeans, would like to see FH .65 (or rather the password for it, as it has no connection whatsoever to the FTP servers) released at a sensible time in here too. Usually the FH releases have been set at the worst possible time of the day (or morning/night), so if it would not be to much to be requested, I'd like the team to consider the timezones in Europe/Russia too, because we've all been anxiously waiting for this release, and preferably would like to get to play it the release day, not the day after. And if it's not possible to make an earlier release, I'd be very happy to know if it's worth waiting for the mod to be released the 24th, or the 25th at the time I'd normally be waking up.

I understand, that most times it's been all up to the FTP servers not being able to release in time, but I was more of thinking of the password, which can be released at any desired moment.

Not trying to sound rude or anything, but the 5AM releases bug me quite a lot.

Thank you.

Do we even know when this will be released? I hadn't read 5AM anywhere, link?

Nono, it's not been said to be released at 5AM, but looking back at the previous releases (including the pre release of .65), it's very probable, in my opinion.

Prerelease of .65? And when you say 5AM, do you mean Finland time?

Prerelease, or Bit-Torrent release.

And yeah, about 5AM GMT+2, but I don't think the timezones vary that much in most parts of Europe, so it's basically more than less an early morning. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Releasing in the early morning makes sense. A lot of fans come from Europe, not all of them will start downloading as some are asleep, like this the servers won't crash as quickly... probably.
