Time Zones

Why is it that Gamigo uses several different time zones in this game? I've lost so many Promos to this confusing array of different times, unless of course that was their intention. I've bought IC just for the Promos and learned later that I missed it by an hour, and you cant ticket it, cause it tells you at the bottom of the page, that Gamigo is not responsible for my lack of understanding. EST, CST, PST(I've seen it), "Local Server Time"(what does that even mean?), the only thing I get is PTSD. Can we all just get on the same page? X(

"Local Server Time" means the time the server you play is on / where its physically located.
LCUS servers are always in EST time zone.
LC DE/UK are in CEST as those are located in Europe

that's why every promo at the bottom has a world clock link where you can see the time zones and what time it should be in EST.

If you can't use online time zone converters you can set Windows to show additional clocks for different time zones.

Time Zones

Thank you all for your input, some great info there. I was just kinda asking why so many times, if we had 1 time that was always the same, it would be much easier for everyone to know what that converts to in their area. I believe that is part of the reason why people are still asking about when DT is, or how much longer it will be. Just a shout out to someone that may be able to do something. :)

Hiyas ThisAintRight2,

I will always add a timezone converter website in my promos I post, so it will be easier to figure out the timezone changes for everyone. As unavailable stated, however, Local Server Time in a post always means the server time for the version you play on (i.e. CEST = Central Euro time for European servers and EST = Easter time US server). I add both as English posts are for both our UK players on Elysion/Atlas/Inferna and US players on NA servers.

Sometimes Promos are only set in Local Server Time (like weekly sales). This means they start at XX:xx Local server time for each versions separately (i.e. EST for US, MSK for RU and EU for DE, FR, PL, ES/IT and EU).

Sometimes Promos are only set up to run in CEST time and not local server time. Those will simply have XX:xx CEST (XX:xx EST) as the promo begins at the same set time for all versions equally.

As Mendek stated, there are programs which can help. I, personally, use Widgets on my PC and have 3 clocks on my deskstop. One for EST, one for CEST and one for MSK as I run versions in each of those timezones.
