Personal Derp-y moment.
Today i had quite the derp moment when i was waiting for the sto launcher to .. launch.

I was with a friend who asked what's with the timer on the left?

I replied its counting down to new content, to build up hype really...

She replied 'It's wrong'

I was torn between agreeing and defending that building up the hype is a nuisance, but only to be shot down by her saying

'no.. its counting down for 2 days, yet says MAY 2013'

Confused i replied 'Yeah that's this Wednesday'

embarassed she replies.. ' but its MARCH'

What am i missing here D:

Yeah everybody's noticed that. The best guess currently is the countdown timer is associated with a teaser-trailer release of some kind for the upcoming content update in may 2013.

It's counting down to some kind of teaser or reveal. Not the actual content which is, indeed, coming in May.

I was expecting some kind of Featured episode or something :|

Ah well, thanks ^^

Thing is -- we won't know exactly what it's counting down to, until it hits zero and they release whatever info they're planning to release (and it'll probably auto appear on that site - with the site suddenly having more info then just the current 'splash page'.)

I could be announcing gthe release of an FE series that leads up to the release of the 'Not-Season-8' May update; some further 'concrete' info regarding the May update, a teaser trailer or hell - even ANOTHER countdown ;) <---- Although that would probably cause a forum riot.

In the end, we won't know until they (Cryptic) actually tell us.:confused:;)

We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown

Countdowns to announcements accompanied by release targets are common in the gaming industry. Microsoft has one running right now to the Xbox 3 announcement at E3. The countdown hits 0 on the second day of E3, but the dates accompanying it are the start of E3 and, "Fall 2013." Sony just ended one last month with the PS4 announcement.

My guess is the whole buildup leads to...Season 8 Dev Blog #1.

It's a troll, nothing will happen when it hits 0.
