    GG i cant do the daily event because of the time being changed.
    Can't do: Boss farming due to having to scramble up and do dailies, all my daily events due to having to try and cram all of my daily bosses in the evenings, while I try to do Commerci/DIPQ in the morning...(which has not gone well) and TODAY I am gonna be late home so I prob will miss a few bosses...
    me by doing some math u only lose 1 day of dailies instead of u do bf 00 like u used to do, u pass to do just after 00
    also that day missed alr gone for a week at least so from now on u only still lose days if you no do the dailies o.o

    Game days are still 24 hours long. You can keep doing your dailies at the same times that you used to do them. They will count differently, the ones you do in the evening will be "tomorrow's" dailies, but why does that matter? You do "Tuesday's dailies" on Monday evening and Tuesday morning, and then you do "Wednesday's dailies" on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, and so on and so forth.

    here is the thing. Of the timezones discussed, if all servers are going to be on one time then PST is the ONLY one that makes sense.

    Midnight pst = 3AM EST=8am UTC

    It is late night/early morning for EVERY one of the proposed time zones.

    It makes most sense to seperate NA severs and Euroup servers times, but if we are going with one time, PST disrupts the least number of people.

    Bumping, because the last post was five days ago and this change is still completely awful and I don't want people to just accept it. It makes much more sense to have the NA server and the Europe server on their own time zones. The poll literally even reflects that. C'MON NEXON. GET IT TOGETHER.

    In the time I have been playing I had the honour of coordinating Guild events. This meant that as I am in Australia, I have had to help members in the USA including Hawaii, Australia, France and the UK. Luckily for me I could spreadsheet it. So basically, I am flexible whatever, though personally UTC is a good fixed point in time (Whovians will get that!)
    Just make a decision and stick with it. Windoze can handle clocks with multiple time zones.
    But Nexon may need to ease people into any new system.

    Nexon needs to put some pep in their step, because this is the 3rd day that I couldn't finish all four Play V reward boxes before reset.
    This is just ridiculous. If someone works at a 9-5pm job EST, they get screwed out of finishing the event. When will the new reset times be implemented? You're screwing people over (nothing new here, yeah?)

    If you're going to make a huge change to server times, you need to make sure they work out for your main demographic first. My lord, this is just unacceptable. At least give us a response about the current status. Disappointing.

    This 7pm reset is messing me up big time.
    I can't even imagine how it is for PST people, having it at 4pm. :/

    It's awful. At least the hot days are PST.

    Oh ya I remember this old poll. Heh almost a month old. Voted thinking it might actually be taken up to the Nexon team, but then again, its KAYTHANKSBYENOW4EVERLIES who originated it, wait why was he let go again...? ooooooooooooo

    So many people, including me, are unhappy about the server time changes and still Nexon is not changing anything. In other words, they don't seem to care too much about their players after all, despite their big words. And with KThxBaiNao gone things probably won't get any better any time soon.
    Well, I am not going to invest any more NX in the game. Just keep maintaining my farms, that's pretty much it.

    I guess Nexon doesn't care anymore. Way to screw over your biggest player base! No updates from any of the staff. Disappointing.

    My understanding, is that they changed it too UTC So its easier for the "Devs?" (Probably not the correct choice in terminology) to manage the event times. Honestly They should have come up for a solution to this Months ago, when they were planning the whole Service Merge. Its poor foresight on nexons behalf. However I can understand if it was overlooked and not thought much about till it was too late to do anything but disrupt the player base by switching to UTC.

    The servers should be changed back to the original times, and the Dev's need to write a program that can easily manage the Timezones for the different servers events automatically, If they are worried about "Convenience". As for the Flag Races and Other Time Specific Events, they should run them based on a 24 hour schedule instead of a 12 hour schedule. So take our current number of flag races, double it and split them evenly over a 24 hour period (Making sure not to conflict with any other time sensitive Events).


    These are just my personal thoughts on the subject, But I really hate the 4pm Reset Time. It feels bad.
