Because it's an American game developed by American companies, operated by an American company on the Pacific Coast which is 9 hours behind Europe and 8 hours behind us in the UK. In addition the vast part of the user base is in America. No matter what time they schedule it there will be complaints from some parts of the world. To rotate scheduling would require staff to come in during the night which perhaps they are not willing to do and if it went wrong help would not be there. I guess we just have to live with it.
