Just to be absolutely sure with the international date line and all, are the added dates correct for the first day of the launch window?
It seems obvious now that it’s written down but I wasn’t confident until it was.
For us “stateside” it’s actually Nov 10.

This case its my local time so easy for me. Would be nice if all launch times on these titles stayed with just UTC , every member should know their local time relative to UTC
