Lol no. But having to stay up till the wee hours to compete is bullshit.
Surely they could show some consideration to ALL customers and start it a couple hours earlier?
Generally the server population is above 5k from now (5pm NZ) - surely that is enough for queues to be ok?

Yeah I don't see why they couldn't start it 1 or 2 hours earlier and end it 1 or 2 hours earlier.

 

People could claim that it takes time away from those who are in server time, but even then those who are in +8 get more time than those of us in +11 and +13.

 

I like that I get 1 hour of playtime for ranked per night because of work, even just making it start at 8pm NZ time (15:00 +8) would have been awesome so we get to actually play it, whilst the HK players would still get as much if not still more playtime than us and it heavily evens the playing field.

 

First they shaft us by removing the 2-hour window where Ranked was ANZ before swapping to HK, like how Advances are, and now they have pushed back the start time as well to screw us even more.

Reminder: Even with ceasefire they had to eventually just remove Rampage mode altogether

 

Heck, RB was removed last season for the ASIA server.

I am  fine with starting it earlier but don't end it earlier. Just as Kiwis get shafted at one end of the time zone scale you have others across Asia that have an issue because they are at the other end.

 

Apac covers a huge range of timezones. Having it end 2 hours earlier would not suit someone in Perth or even India for example.

How about having it at 8AM to 2PM so that it screws everyone equally

they started it later so the ranked runners are not biased to one server pretty sure

The mindset you need to improve

Except if you started it 2 hours earlier, and ended it 2 hours earlier, nearly, if not all timezones get equal amounts of prime time.

 

As it currently stands HK gets 5-6 hours prime time, ANZ gets 1-3, shifting it would make it so everyone gets around 3 hours prime time playing, with the people on holiday/without jobs still getting all of it.

 

Makes it better for ANZ players and actually evens the playing field since the HK players can beat the best ANZ players in the rankings simply through sheer volume of games played.

You know there's this thing called "employment", "commute" and "dinner"

 

I'm typically at 7.30PM GMT+8 after doing all the above

 

If anything I am jealous of GMT+10 people

And they biased it to 1 server.
Remember last time, 2 hours on ANZ then it switched to HK. So bias is already against ANZ players this time, because ping to HK.

Why can it not run 8 hours. It does not need to finish 2 hours earlier because it starts earlier.  Our timezones cover half a bloody day!

1 day of premium left, unlikely to spend another damned cent when my custom is worth a [edited] you.

Kiwis shafted with ping AND timezone. It's great fun playing competitive modes with 200 ping vs 10 ping. 

Why does it have to end 2 hours earlier? We have a broad timezone range, so extend the bloody time. Simple. Add 2 hours, not shift them forward.
I am complaining about fairness, shifting it just screws the other end like you say.

 Agreed. It would not help people to have RB start before they get home from work.

The server time actually seems to affect later players more if you look at CW participation. 9-11 Server time is the most populous time. NZ players if this is important to you adjust your body clocks. Come home, have a snooze and wake and do battles for longer.

 

Lots get done over by the timing. Impossible to get right for all.

They can't even do that for CW campaigns

 

End up we have people who play 8 hours every day and then complain 2am battles are too late
