Bringing the start time of the round forward by 3 hours?
I don’t know if this can be done now that the round has been setup but 5pm start is another late one for us Europeans
Especially with our shit map placement, it will be 2am/3am by the time explos land and we can build again. With many issues relating to fams getting ahead of others, the start of the round is crucial to ensure that we maintain a level playing field right from the off so, we need to concentrate on a permanent round start time that focuses on when ticks 5-10 are best for the majority of people, rather than the actual physical start time.
This is the current state of times on tick 9 (when most explos will have landed) across the world if the SOR was to remain the same. As you can see, unfair for us Europeans - add an hour on for anyone on the contintent to my GMT time below (so basically, 3am for Holland, Belgium etc):
The actual SOR is almost like a false start with the ability to prebuild; the real stuff happens between 5-10 so we need to level that playing field. The below is a table showing international times versus 11pm here in the UK.
This is a 2pm SOR time, 3 hours before the existing start time. 11pm in the UK would equal tick 9 (time for build, explo and second build).
As you can see, at this tick time everyone will be available to build. Obviously no time is absolutely perfect but the current timings are quite against us Euros
