pommepouffe said:"Use PST for the North American server and Central European Time (CET) for the European server." This option seems most fair and reasonable to me. I only worry about whether this will be difficult to achieve without consistent errors, and what it may mean for future content. The European servers would then be ahead of the NA servers by a few hours, and while I can't think of a huge problem this could pose, who knows what events/content might come up in the future? I suppose there could be confusion for time-specific events too, such as Hot Times (how will those be coordinated... each server has its own specific Hot Time, or will they occur at the same time across both servers meaning players must be careful to check the announced times for each server?)If that option is possible to implement without issues, I'm all for it, otherwise please just revert back to PST. It's not the most perfect time for myself, but I think satisfying the majority is definitely the way to go here.

We're currently planning to adjust future event times so that they more closely align with the previous event start times. We’re also looking into the current events and content times to determine if they need to re-calibrated to their original schedule. Please bear with us as look into your concerns and find a solution that will better service all of our global players."Keep it the same (UTC) or find an intermediate time that pleases both EMS and GMS. But do keep in mind EMS > PST> EST. But, reading OP they can simply just adjust future event times that will match everyone's time. And definitely do not go back to PST. There is a huge disadvantage for EST players for flag race. Perhaps, just eliminate 2 races near the end that way its fair play. Or perhaps add a new flagrace (there are only two types of flagrace anyways).
