I can find just as many people who will say current time is perfect, and your times sux, what is your point?

Do you understand that almost all the dread times except very few ones are during the night or during the morning? Do you also know that normal people need to sleep or go to work during this times?

OH yeah then do it,,,   so what your saying is starting a game that may go on for 2 hours committing to a group that you wont leave at 11 pm is realistic?

 or leaving work early so you can make it home by 3pm   that's an option right,

   here is an option that would work split Jerhico's time and have a game sometime in the middle of the 8 hours while there is absolutely nothing happening

 why in the hell do you need the 2 sets of dread battles with in 2 hour of each other  Hmmmmm to cater to a certain group of players perhaps?

and before you say there was a poll,,, For the only time given the US player base, The results were ignored and the time instituted was an hour later,

Also in your poll there was a section that asked do we need more times, that was ignored as well. the results were also skewed by the fact that at the same time of the"POLL"

A large portion of the player base was locked out of the forums because someone got the bright idea you need to play 2 games daily before you could make a post, that was so bugged it took me 2 weeks to be able to reply to the "POLL" by then the results were ignored.

 Ill be looking forward to your post saying the dread battle times are perfect

To be honest, everyone in the world should just use GMT, and f this timezone BS, so all the americans would sleep during the day and work at night. Same with the aussies and russians. That would solve all gaming problems and might even lead to world peace, you never know

Here's the thing when you put it in to perspective...

 

South Asia ranges between +5 and +12, New Zealand and Fiji inclusive. This is why Velorum is at 13:00 UTC where the latest time will be 01:00 UTC±12 - this needs to change to 10:00 UTC.

 

Russia and Eastern Europe ranges between +2 and +4. This is why all of Empire is at 18:00 UTC. where the latest time will be 22:00 within this range.

 

The rest of Europe and East Coast US ranges between -5 and +2. This is why all of Jericho is at 20:00 UTC where the latest time will be 22:00 within this range.

 

The United States, Canada, Mexico, South America and Eastern Asia ranges between +8 and -5. This is why the rest of the Federation is at 04:00 UTC where the latest time will be 23:00 UTC-5 - this should be moved to 03:00 UTC to at least make it sync up.

Do you know how many time zones in America?

Yes, I do, and I also know all of them are between -10 (West Coast) and -6 (Est coast) related to GMT.  So, that means that if a dread battle is at 16:00 in europe, it will be at 6:00-10:00 in America.

YEP!   its 3 hours difference between here in Florida and California,

   Here is where the US player base gets frustrated.

 between Florida AND CALIFORNIA there are millions of people

 with credit cards

   that would love to play this game

BUT

  it takes so much drama to get the simplest thing done

 LIKE A SIMPLE LOGO UPDATE

much less a decent server,

or Advertising

what this game needs is a SUPER BOWL commercial,

Did you know that those millions of people living in central USA, spread between big cities, are using 3rd world grade internet? USA as a country has one hell of a terrible infrastructure

I never said they are perfect, i said they cover as many or more players at this moment, what ArcTic and his buddies were pushing for is to move the time, effectively screwing all the people that do play Dread right now, and the way he is /were pushing is a simple whining without any backup data on how that change is better for majority of players rather than only his corporation, all i hear is "I want I want I want"

P.S. servers are great.

P.S.S. you're =/= your, learn the damn difference, you live in "English" speaking country.

America =/= USA

expanded-world-time-zone-map-longitude.g

Yeah. 

But what's the problem of giving NA players more battles? I'm european, so I don't even have this problem, but I understand that being able to just do 1 dread battle per day on a jericho sector is boring. Nobody will be hurt if some battle times change. Instead, it will bring more NA players to the game, and everybody knows that more players=slower queue times and a better experience in general.

And where am i opposing addition to times? It may or may not be good in result, but i never said i am against it.

Again i am arguing about post that somply say "current time sux", that is my point - it sux for whoever it sux, but it does not sux for everybody, and if one to look at continent population density, current time covers the most population.

ok here are some fun facts 155 million US residents play video games. There was US 22 Billion dollars was spent on video games in 2014. The US has 22 % of all gamers in the world.

http://www.theesa.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/ESA-Essential-Facts-2015.pdf   

  now here is some more fun facts US internet usage Peaks around 6 pm on the east coast of the US and starts falling around 8pm on the East coast. At 11pm when the only US game is there are less than 1/2 of the active internet users than at 8pm. by the time the Dread battles are over around 1am there are only 1/4 of the active US internet users

http://www.edlundart.com/pages/is-the-internet-awake.html,

 So in conclusion perhaps we could have more opportunities for Dread Battles in the dead time between Jericho and Fed Space Dread battles, you know when there are more active US players.

EU players hate being on a US servers   why? its the xxxx ping and low fps that are always plaguing our servers. Every day we lose more players, its tragic really and it seems no one is listening.

 The game itself is great, its watching it slowly die from lack of support that has people frustrated,

US is freaking gold for video games. We have money, even if we don't have money, we'll spend it, and SC does not advertise in the US......

 

Here Star Citizen, here's a free gift of the USA. 

 

but honestly, who are we kidding? Once Star Citizen and No Man's Sky come out, there will be no other space games.

Well after submitting our logo the correct way, it seems to have been over looked so, would you mind giving us a hand so we can get this updated.

It seems nothing gets done unless you scream and shout about it so,,,,,

 btw our logo is in the correct place and I have sent 3 e-mails with no response to when there will be a logo update

In-order to bring  the necessary drama to the post.

On a even server Radix will beat NASA. 

WPK will own ESB,

SCORP is only good because they are Russian based.

There is a definite Russian bias to our game,

more money needs to be spent on the English speaking player base.

Dreadnought game times suck

we need to bring back 4 player groups in PvP

we need more tournaments!!!

I think DrDeath got screwed and is right!!!

well if you would show your support for our logo update by flaming one of the issues above,

 or post funny pics

 just keep this topic at the the top of the forums

Thanks for your help

I hope this becomes the most upvoted comment on the forms.

Well fractured space, star trek online, elite dangerous, Dreadnoughts ( - those on the alpha get to play tomorrow !!!) and Eve.  

 

I've also wondered, the game Dreadnoughts - were the destroyers concept built off this game ?  There are alot of staggering similarities.
