Why isn't it open yet?

I woke up so excited to play the game, and the playtest isn’t here as of 8:26 AM CST
It’s going to open around 2:00 PM CST, check #announcements

It Doesn’t Open In The Morning, It Is Slightly Later In The Day When It Opens.

Yea, the game opens after a while, but it stays open til pretty late and you can stay on as long as you want as long as you don’t leave or crash.

it usually opens around 6-10 but they’ve been expanding the time so we’re not sure anymore
