During the course of any given week we vary the starting times of the trials. To get a better handle on what time players would enjoy trials, we want you to respond/fill out this poll with the time closest to when you would like usual trials to start. All of my times are on EST (Eastern Standard Time), but you can get a conversion chart off of google or http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc to help.

i would really want to see nightly trials, like 9:00 or 10:00 CST in week days and probably 2:00 - 4:00 CST sundays trials. that would be awesome..

6pm EST is nice, because sometimes I have to go whole weeks without the desired trial because they run at noon(Like the elusive T2 trials except for thursdays or tuesdays ussually).

yeah evem being from the USA I don't mind some trials being ideally suited for Europeans; it's only fair.

Why not do two a day? I can't do unless its 8pm cst or later. I think two a day could be handled and would be worth it.

Having two a day without invites would result in every other player having a Bye in the master.

I think that 10PM(7PM PST) EST would be best for me. Since I'm on PST and I am usually unable to get home before 5:30pm(8:30pm EST) on weekdays, so 6PM(3PM PST) EST would be bad for me.

I think noon trials are much more reasonable now that school is out in the USA. I enjoy noon or earlier trials since I also work evenings and usually only get into early weekend ones or the ones running on days off.

i think that you'll never find a good time to make trials because there will always be a group of people that would be unable to play...but 6 pm EST is the best time for me

Well, this has been a problem for me since ive had school starting back. I havent played ina trial in over a month. thnx gfo for trying to fix this problem. It seems like everyone has about voted for the same time as i have.. and this is just a idea.. would it be a bad idea to have 2 trials a day and just 1 bye for the winner of each trial.. I like that idea better.

Just do one day at 6-9 and the other day noon-2 so everyone can play i think and you dont need master invitation only i dont like the idea. I think its the best solution if there would be to many players in the masters if there a two a day. But i also think it would be great Smile
Or how the one above said thats also good

6pm EST would be best for most americans in work/school. If you look at the geo visitor thingy it looks like most visitors are from the eastern timezone. The current trial times definitly have to be changed though... During the week many trials start at like 1-2pm est and the 6pm trials are on Friday... This really makes no sense.
