Same here! I love the fact that it's different!
As for release date/time - I've seen some updates take 5 minutes instead of 2 hours, and some get delayed for up to a day, but I've yet to see one take longer than they said it would (or at least not by much.. Mm, maybe I just wasn't paying attention lol) but only time will tell. They never released a time for the game to come back up though, so as long as they make it by 11:59:59 PM PDT tomorrow it'll still be on time for release :P
