Found this site regarding population by timezone. Cryptic decides the time this is done, and it's most likely going to always be at the same time every week simply due to corporate inertia, but if you're actually interested in the total population (gaming or otherwise) per timezone: http://artscience.cyberclip.com/worl...n-by-time-zone


I'm presuming that the gaming population in Haiti is probably lower than south florida, even though they may have the same total population.

so, to quote someone: Realize there are other players (sic)
I do realize that America isn't the center of the world. That's a giant ball of molten iron (if current theories are correct). I do not understand why others would invest so much of themselves into this, that they need to 'hate' over it, to quote someone. If the downtime is when you get home from work, then either get home earlier, or play later. Hell, don't go get the kids at all, if the inability to play bothers you.

If they made a chinese-language version of this game, then the maintenances would be done during the times when the chinese were asleep, or at work, because they'd skew the player level numbers.
I suggest, before you start spreading any stuff like this further, you fresh up on geography and demographics... currently north americe bout 450mil, europe bout 640... North america has more surface, that's it. so don't go treating us europeans as lower classed people. And if you look deeper into the numbers, I'll bet you'll find at least as much euro gamers as american.

Again, sort yr facts first befor eyou make statements

Yeah, good idea. Tell you what, why don't we petition to have every forum thread locked so only the Moderators can post? There is a locked thread already that defines what maintenance is taking place including, when available, patch notes. If you don't like forum threads then why not try this ingenious idea --- get off the damned forum?

If you count the entire American continent you would be correct in the total amount of potential gamers, BUT only 6 countries combined go WAY beyond the pop.count of the USA, imagine if you counted them all because that would probably go way beyond 400 mil.

Please think before you post nonsence.
I love how you compared apples to oranges there, USA to EUROPE, a country to a continent LOL. If you count all of europe, which would be wrong as it spans far to wide for this discussion and we counted the entire americas we still got u beat. as of 2010
Americas (meaning North, central, south), population of 934,611,000 and Europe, population of 738,199,000.

I am not treating anyone as any kind of class.
I did not know that you were a telepath and were able to state how I feel about humanity.

Also, Interesting how the prior post to this one just invalidated your numbers.
USA alone, not north america, 934mil, Europe 738mil.

I myself don't know the numbers nor care.

I really hate it when stereotypes fit, but dear Americans, "American Idiot" isn't something the rest of the world just makes up to annoy you. q.e.d. up there...
