Okay, since we’re subjective all the way, here’s my input.
I’ve been playing the game for about 4 years now and every, single, time, i organized an event of any kind it ended like this:
roughly half didn’t come because they didn’t calculate the time zones right (up to 2+ hours late or early or something with daylight saving time)
a quarter did manage to calculate but managed to be an hour late or early so they usually log out in the worse possible moment
the rest is just what i managed to scramble from randoms i found at that moment
I can manage different time zones, this is about people that can’t (probably the majority of players in my experience, idk). Yes, there are ways, from third party apps to widgets of some kind or similar.
I have no use of an ingame clock showing me my time, im always looking at my clock on the wall or my phone to see what time it is.
I just thought that “wouldn’t it be useful if this ingame clock showed only the UTC time zone in which everything happens anyway”, even if i know how to calculate and manage different time zones.
This way every competitive mode will have a unified start time and end time showing the same values to everyone, daily reset time at 00:00 so you snatch all the dailies, open space task times and so on.
Not only will it make sense in the organizational terms once its implemented, it would even be easier for the developers (i think at least) to announce virtually anything and do everything a lot easier when dealing with people on different continents. If anyone can explain it better than me, please feel free to explain why a single time zone ingame clock would be a better idea than the one we have right now.
