For users in Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern time, the game goes live at 9PM, 10PM, 11PM and 12AM. It's nice that Valve is able to unlock it at the exact same moment for everyone around the world, but that also means somebody, somewhere is going to get shafted -- at least temporarily.
Hopefully, Valve's decision to make preloading available a week in advance will ensure that surging demand for the game doesn't ruin it for everyone.
