Noon EST and 2pm EST are the best times for me. They start at 5pm and 7pm so they don't finish that late like the t2 trial yesterday which started at 11pm!! Most people don't want to stay awake the whole night and for Europeans I'm in GMT so for the eastern countries they start even later. That's why I think that a reasonable part of the trials should be at either non EST or 2pm EST.

I thought people wanted trials at 6pm EST. that's 11pm GMT.

However, now there are trials at 8pm EST. That's 1 AM here and, obv, I'm not going to play a trial at 1 AM. That sucks!

Why have you changed the trials hour? I've never seen a trial at 8pm EST! And in the eastern countries they must start like 3 AM or something... I can imagine them waking up and seeing a trial coming to an end! Shocked

I don't like trials being at 6pm, but 8pm that's even worse! Can someone do anything about this? tnx

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.

if we did that we would probably make masters invite only again

sounds nice to me

I think it sucks that 6pm had over 30 more votes than anything(2nd place was 12pm eastern), but yet they almost NEVER run trials around that time. i work from 7am to 5pm eastern 10 hrs a day, and usually miss every single trial all week. At least one at 6pm during the weekdays would be nice, please?

I think the real problem is that every trial is the same time. We as players are spread around the world. Even if we do pick a time, not every trial should be at that time. For example, for the last few weeks almost every weekday trial has been at 4EST, or 1PST for me. I have a job and can't play. But I know that there are people who can play in those trials. The solution is so simple. Leave some of those, but put some other day's trials at other times. A long time ago the trial times on here were very random, and it was awesome because no matter where you lived you got to play in one eventually. But with the rigid, all weekday trials at one time plan, no matter what you do, some people are going to get shafted.


Right now it is essentially impossible to play a weekday trial on the West coast. We get 11AM and 1PM. Mix up the times people, please.

As my personal opinion, I vote for the noon EST time, but methinks also 2 from 4 pm can be quite good for standard european times. Or can I suggest two or three separate Trials (e.g.: one for PST, one for EST and one for CST), and then, with the best players amongst these Trials, a single Trial event with a starting time maybe more compatible and enjoyable for that resulting little bunch of players qualified?

My excuses for my bad english (I'm italian and usually I play some local event with real cards - now it's few days I've bought MWS and started to experimenting ^^) but my proposal is intended to give with each timezone separation for Trials (maybe called phase one? ^^) access to much more people, and then it's quite obviously that the second-phase Trial (the one with the best qualified from timezoned previous Trials ^^) can stand less time & participation problems.

Just an idea... ^^
