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.

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.
