Does that mean that there will be a "F2P-Download" or something then ?
Btw, I'm in Germany !
Will that mean because I'm ahead of the "game time" that I likely will not be able to play before it's the 18th here ?
The download won't change - you won't have to download another whole game - though I'm sure there might be a patch that day. I don't know when FTP is launching. If it's like most things it will be around 10 AM PST - which is about 6 PM GMT, IIRC.
