It's just tough. Majority of the players live in the states, they choose the time that inconveniences the smallest number of players. I'm sure the Cryptic staff would rather not be in the office at midnight for 2 hours but they are in order to minimise population disruption. If you live in other timezones like the UK suck it up or get more UK players so that we are the largest player base, then they would change the times to suite.
you say the majority lives in the US really funny how 90% of the ppl i see talking are foreign like German for example
