Hello dear community!

 

Hope you feel ready for tournaments because they will be (really will!) started on the next week and announced in the game client this Friday.

During the discussion with you I faced a question of comfortable time for participation in tournaments. That's a really important question because some of you ready to participate but timezone difficulties make participation too uncomfortable.

 

I suggest you to think about and vote which time is more comfortable for you.

Voting will take place till July 20th. Then we can apply changes according the results :)

 

* Note: you can choose only 1 answer for every question.

We can separate tournament series on Tuesdays and Thursdays by time )

Sounds like a pretty good idea. Gives everyone an opportunity to play at a convenient time. :medal:

So, why am I voting for the west coasters when I'm in Central. You set up poll that all questions have to be answered. Also, poll gave no explanation that tourny may be split. :amazed: Thanks for the try though.

Because nobody cares about the vacant space between NY and LA.

Yeah, I'm afraid if I vote for times based on my location (central), it'll mess up the perspective of the two coasts. 

I actually don't mind 10 PM Central, but that's probably too late for some younger players. Anything between 8-10 PM (central) is good for me.

A question of time..... a good Depeche Mode song!

A lot of my clan mates are east coast based, generally they would setup the matches so that it would run at 8:30 - 9:00pm est so that I had to make it home by 5:30 - 6:00pm pdst to play with them.

I understand your concern, dear tedg5, but maybe you can choose something in-between? Time which will be the most comfortable for you to play.

I wish that you had given notice in news that there was a poll on something as important to players as tournament timings and given us more time to respond (not 24 hours!) as I would have got my whole clan to respond. 

 

We do now effectively have a split in East and West Coast tournaments as an 11pm Eastern start on Tuesday sees the tournament finish at 1230am on Wednesday morning.  Thursday timings remain where they were originally at 9pm Eastern which works for the east coast and was workable for the majority of our players on the West coast too.  

 

As a clan we used to enter two teams in every tournament without fail, now we will not be able to do this.  I understand the rationale as to why you have changed it to be more inclusive of all time zones but it will be interesting to see if it will reduce the over all level of participation. I can guarantee however that there will be a definate increase in AFK/no shows due to confusion between time zones on different days!

 

i will reserve judgement and see how it pans out. I hope it works out for the best.

We can implement changes after 1 week but first I would like to be sure that chosen time is comfortable for East Coast and West Coast players )

Why is that you have made it so gold series tournaments are only for touch, but the other tournaments have the option of keyboard and mouse?

East coast time seems fine to be honest. Many play late night already so it works out.

Because gold series tournaments may possibly be connected to offline tournaments and eSports in the future. All our eSports activities will take place only on Touch devices.
