Which server? The game server? When I am logged in, the time given is my local time there. I believe Cryptic sits in Seattle, which would make it PDT(Pacific Daylight Time, UTC/GMT -7 hours).

I based the time on the time advertised on the forum as thats the easiest for all to get to.

Not sure which zone that is though sorry. I'm from South Africa, so not too sure about the US time zones.

If someone US could help, I would appreciate it. What time zone would be best? You all have so many :)

I'm GMT +2 I think, so 10h00 am would be the equivalent of 20h00 pm for me.

The matches will run through out the day and evening, so even if you are late you will still get to play!

Still very new to PvP. Still figuring out how to "build" the right way.
Still, I think I will bring my KDF Carrier out to play, because I seem to do much better with that toon/ship combo than any other.

I'll be there. And I will bring lots of little ships to launch from my hangars.

EDIT : And my vote is just use the same time Cryptic uses for things. That would be 10am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, and 1 pm Eastern here in the US.

OK forum Time is based on what timezone you select under account options. The easiest way to do times would be to post a Time in GMT. If you go to my account and look under the options section, you can pick your timezone and it will tell you where you are +/- from GMT. For example, Canada Mountain time is GMT -7 right now. So if you wanted the even to start at GMT 10:00, it would be 3:00 here. Now daylight savings can throw a wrench in this though. If I recall, you won't have to doing and adjusting until you roll back the clocks in the fall.

So summary:
1. Go to my account
2. Check under the options section.
3. Select your timezone (it will state where you are in relation to GMT)
4. Take into account Daylight savings if applicable
IFor example, in the fall, when we turn back the clocks, you need to subtract 1 more hour from GMT to get to your time. In the spring the GMT +/- hours listed under the options section should be correct. I think its this way, or it might be vice versa, its been a while since I had to co-ordinate an event with people around the world
5. ???
6. Profit!!! (or in this case Pew! Pew!)

Wish I could sign up, but Saturday is too unpredictable for me to even know if I'd be home. Usually I go out to a "local" Gaming Store for my Table Top Gaming on Saturdays. :(

Enjoy the PVP how ever :) Fight well. Die with Honor.

Thanks awesome! Didn't know about that nugget!

I based the 10:00 on the GMT -8 Pacific Time then (US & Canada)


All times are GMT -7. The time now is 08:29 PM.
