And I assume you and most of the other posters do. I live in Australia (UTC +10 here on the east coast) and so converting from PST or UTC is about the same difficulty.

And my preference would be for just UTC. I have no idea why MMO companies seem to think their customers give a rats what local time is, especially given the time zone disparity in the US alone.
Rather amusingly, they have actually started quoting the time relative to and specifically mentioning GMT - so I guess people still do use it ROFL. Take a look at the log in screen right now. Sweet irony.
