GMT +1.

1. its where the servers are
2. no matter when the time is it will be unffair for someone.

if they move the time to fit aussies more it will switch over more badly for the US people and europeans, if it goes more in the favor of the US people it will even be worse for you aussies

so atm it's fine, cant make everyone happy unless they make an event for every timezone really :p

I think this could be a good compromise or even an hour or two earlier, just means we europeans need to wake up and americans to stay up past their bedtime for once ;)

I have friends from aussie, canada, us and myself europe be playing at these times sometimes

PS. I hope I didn't mess the times up with all this strange PM/AM ;)

Under MA angle: they could check with their accounting department from which country or timezone are their best customers (the biggest depositors) and arrange the events to have them online.

Under player angle: there was such question asked here on EF some years ago maybe for a Mayhem. Unfortunatelly I could not find it. :ahh: As far as I can remember, many people did vote and there clearly were two peaks in votes: US and Western Europe local times 20:00 - 00:00. :)

ofc you want it to work, mind if I ask what kind of event you are doing this research for?

Edit: sounds like a fun event, went and signed up for it now :) (hope G.I.R.Ls are welcome too)

From my experience:

Weekdays around 22:00 - 23:00 MA time.
Most European players still online late in the evening
Most US players also allready online in the early evening

Weekends around 19:00 - 21:00 MA time

Crappy hours for Far East Asians and Aussies, but that are the hours that my events worked the best.

Can't wait to see what your planning...
