Rotating start times for Coop Championship and other events?
I don’t believe I’m the only one on the U.S. server who feels this way. It seems unfair to me that all the events start in the middle of the night here in the U.S. I understand that GGS isn’t headquartered here, but many of your customers are, or are in our same time zones.
What I’d like to see is GGS rotating the start times for events - and especially for the Cooperative Championship. My coop in particular is often in the Master League, playing against players all over the world. The top coops in that league are all in Europe, so have a distinct advantage. When the event starts, it’s morning or early afternoon there. For us it’s the middle of the night. They get an early start at the event which we have to rise at an ungodly hour or stay up way past our bedtimes to match! Likewise, when the event ends, it’s again morning for the top coops. They are easily able to make a last-minute push for position, whereas we in the US, Canada, Central and South America are staying up late at night to make sure our coops don’t lose their spots! Most of our players are (or would rather be) sleeping soundly at that time!
I’m not suggesting that all start times be switched to our advantage. That wouldn’t be fair either. But perhaps the start/end times could be rotated so that one time zone isn’t always favored on every event, every time.
Thanks for listening.
