    so i've actually only just get used to PST timezone, and the new maintenance time is now 23:00PDT...

    my question is, is it the same time as last week maintenance? if not then, how many hours difference is it from the usual maintenance time(20:00PST)?

    Because (most states in) the US observes "daylight savings time" so half the year we move the clocks ahead 1 hour. So for those of us in the states that do observe it, there is no difference.

    I'm so good with timezones and stuff. I totally understand the difference between PST and PDT. I don't even need to compare with my timezone at all.

    Terrible timing for Europeans as usual as whole morning and part of afternoon gone on maintenance. Should compensate Europeans for lost gaming time like that did iOs users :D

    I really wish daylight saving time would go away - Just a pain in the butt to deal with and it is very outdated

    Starts at 6am here in the UK.
    So that's half a day gone with maintenance.

    I swear that one day a game will actually work in favour of us in the UK.


    Just makes me laugh though.
    A maintenance goes over by an hour and people scream they want compensation.
    When a large chunk of the world actually lose playing time because of this and they just live with it.
    I do think they should do something with times though like maybe alternating it weekly.
    That way everyone gets a chance to miss a chunk of play time rather than just the same people every time.

    Honestly they should change it up on the maint start times so everyone gets equally screwed instead of just always the same group.

    Personally I will have a unit farming LB overnight anyways. I am farming lara at the moment, really hoping her 7* form has an amazing LB when maxed.

    It also puts a lot of stress on the body at first. It is different losing an hour of sleep than forcing your body to continually switch to a new time. It has been shown there is a marked rise in the rates of heart attacks in higher risk categories right after the change. Think it was in the first two months or something.

    It would be nice to just leave it without DST.

    Regarding daylight saving time, I wish they would just let it stay on how it is in summer (officially the wrong time) like they did in a few other European countries. It's nice having an added hour of sunlight in the evening, I don't want to pass on that :(

    7 AM to 3 PM on thursday in Germany. I can spend orbs and NRG in the morning after waking up, so I'm fine with it. But I agree, it would be nice if they would either set up servers for different zones over the world so they can schedule it at the same time for everyone or alternate the times so everyone has the same trouble from time to time. It would be nice going to bed, spending everything, then waking up and maintenance is over...

    Yeah, that would be pretty nice :/

    Working guy here, not better since I play during the day anyways like in my breaks or in other situations (waiting times etc).
