I have been playing this week events (trials and master) and since dst the timer has gone crazy, resulting in events that starts at the CET scheduled hour and others that starts at the american scheduled hour depending on who tc's it.
This is a big problem because for CET players you have to come 1 hour b4 the scheduled hour to see if it will start 1 hour before scheduled or not, and u can't leave because an american TC could come and start it right away because he thinks it should have already started.

I think there should be an announcement saying that:

A) Every tournament starts at american hour, so -1 for CET scheduled hour.


B) Every tournament starts at CET hour, so +1 for americans.

At least this way we will know when to come for trials and masters, until they fix the timer.

personally I agree, however I am not sure if they will actually do something along those lines.

what should happen is:

Magic league should take a week IP survey and see where most of people are from (my guess would be eastern America) and have all tourneys start at that time.

Just because a lot of European players complain about the time, doesn't mean we should switch it from there

Its not an issue of what time the trials are at, but whether they are consistent.

Everyone needs to chill out cuz the DST does this to M-L start times for about a month after the DST switches. US players are lagged 1 hour cuz of this cuz the US DST goes into effect about a month before the rest of the world for some unknown reason.
