    [UPDATED] Changing 1 Weekday Timeslot for West Coast/Midwest

    So, I think we're going to modify the timeslots of the Weekdays, and have one of those three days slotted to benefit West Coast/Midwest to better serve the community.


    Tuesdays -- 6pm/630pm/7pm EDT (WB/Jav/Base)

    Wednesdays -- 9pm/930pm/10pm EDT (WB/Jav/Base)

    Thursdays -- 6pm/630pm/7pm EDT (WB/Jav/Base)


    Tuesdays and Thursdays will remain the same, but Wednesdays will be 3 hours later to benefit our friends in different time zones.

    I'm somewhat skeptical of the ability to generate lots of players at that hour, but I've been lobbied to change one of them, so we'll give it a shot and see how it goes.

    qan EDIT: Times have been corrected. My fault! Apologies, guys

    I'm not really sure how this mid-week stuff is going to work - Tuesdays and Thursdays for me run from 11pm to gone midnight which isn't really viable when you have a job and real life stuff, and any other euro's have it worse (all the Finns), and the Wednesday works for us Euros but only about 4 yanks will make it (the unemployed basement dwellers).

    Basically I can't do this at all, but maybe it's different for everyone else

    Might I suggest doing 1 late night per week? Example: Wednesday 9PM EST. These weekday games are too early in the day for those of us on Pacific/Mountain/Central time USA. For me these games are 2-5pm, quite early in the day, for some others its 12pm to 3pm, again quite early. Hoping you consider doing 1 late night game. One 9-10PM EST or later game a week would be appreciated and give those of us with jobs/families a chance to play. Thank you for your consideration here.

    Beasty and Qan are pushing for the 3pm slots, that's the time they suggested.

    I don't know of many if any West Coast players, but they seem convinced they're out there. If you want the Wednesday timeslot changed I suggest you make it known to them and on forums.

    We also have the ability to host impromptu TSL games if there's enough people online who want it (like Distension did sometimes) that players could use as filler for games they missed.

    Time corrected. Sorry about that.

    What ix and Banks were talking about was exactly what I was thinking, so that everyone in the mainland US/Canada would be off work to play for one of the weekday times. But, as we were batting around the times, the last time I mentioned it I didn't think too hard about it and said 3 hours earlier rather than 3 hours later. Whoops.


    This time won't work for most Euros, unfortunately. But, Tues/Thurs won't work for many working stiffs in US/Canada/elsewhere, so it seems fair enough. If it doesn't draw enough to make games, and Tues/Thurs are extremely successful, can always bump it back.

    Neither will the current timeslot for euro's. A working man wont be online at 12 am till 3 am to get some games.
    Basicly what you are saying "Fuck the euro's." But then again, the zone has barely any euro left, so it wont work anyway with early time slots.

    Lol yeah. Much more logical would be to have 3 timeslots: 1 for europeans, 2 for americans, evening and late-night games.

    As major said, no working european will be online at midnight. If there were to be a timeslot for europeans, it could be 2pm 3pm 4pm est.

    Logically this would make sense. I'm American but I would prefer one day with 2 3 4 pm gametimes.

    3 days, 3 different times and of course sunday.

    It's a question of demographics, we want to pull the most people possible.

    Historically speaking, TWDT hosted Weekday games at 600/630/700 -- that generally seems to be the best nexus.

    If you can show me evidence there are better timeslots I'm all ears.

    At worst, you can still play Sundays, and still qualify for Finals. At best, you can show to both.

    I did not host games at 6/6.30/7. I am pretty sure my season was the only one with weekgames. It was either 'just' 3-4-5 or 4-4.30-5.

    I am sure people who play more have a better chance of getting higher in the ladder.
    I even think the current weekend schedule is dumb. I mean warbirds are mostly from USA, why would u host them as first games? Just cuz TWDT does that too?
    Historically javs get played a lot by euro's, just like base. But lets put them all in the back... For me personally is the chance that I will play a base game, is like 5% now. Weekdays are impossible and sundays are too late for me often too.
    As far as I can see you are willing to change schedule for the working USA people, but not for the working europe people. The euro people are disappearing more and more already, and such stuff makes it more easy to quit.

    Your TWDT Winter 2011 Rules page says otherwise: http://forums.subspace.tw/showthread...WDT-2011-Rules

    Competitions will be held also on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6 pm EST
    I also played TWDT Fall 2011 run by Black Mage and the weekday games were 6pm EST as well.

    There was also a poll when the population was much larger and the ideal time for Weekday games was determined to be 6pm EST: http://forums.subspace.tw/showthread...uring-the-week

    Having one day be 3pm EST makes more sense to me since it covers Euros, but Qan and Beasty seem intent on 9pm EST.

    They're both helping with the league and Qan makes the robots go, so I don't really want to fight them on the issue, and frankly I don't know how many players are West Coast or Euro, but my guess is there is a bigger Euro population than West Coast. Without the numbers, I can't say anything definitively.
