I know i'm not only from eastern timeand I think the majority of poeple are from here. Why all mini are at 4pm and 1pm? you guys dont have school and work? I agree that we need a calandar for evry poeple on all the planet, but, I can'T do s single trial just because that calandar is alwasy during pm..... You should do more variation in this one.

Thank you

There are people from basically every time zone on here, however, I do agree. I work full-time but I could make 4pm minis, not 3pm CDT however.

the main reason for 4 PM .us time (10 PM .eu)
and 1 PM .us time (7 PM .eu) is that players of both areas (US and Europe) can join the same tournaments. of corse, we could also do more 2 PM .eu (thats 8 AM .us time) but the number of players for those trials would, I think be much lower than with current trial times.

The question is not eastern/western America. It is
"American Time Zone" vs. "European Time Zone"
and how both time zones can be served best.

Most minis are run throughout the day without much accumulation at any given time, meaning that they aren't concentrated between such and such time. I really don't see what the problem is. If you want to participate in minis, just idle around in the main IRC league room and you should see a mini form before long.

I get what you're saying, Flippi, that is completely understandable. I don't have any useful suggestions to make, I'm just whining I guess.

I know you're concentrating on the time you can get more poeple, but it will be always same poeple... Maybe you will get more poeple in futur if you try to join everyone. Like you gte less poeple for some trials, but in futur maybe you will get more.

We can't do it right for everyone.

Because some people are living in American Time
and some others are living in European Time.

There is a time shifting problem.

It is hard to find the right time so that all people could play.

Maybe another idea is to make EUROPEAN Trials and AMERICAN Trials.

It is like a you would go to a local shop and playing at their tournament.

I would say to run 2 Trials a day, but there arn't enough judges for that.

i like the seperate idea, because i really cant make a trial because of school and/or work. 4PM mini CDT would be amazing.
