      normally, this would be the ‘where are you from’ question … but in i guess, beside that a lot of shiftworker are here … a lot would play around 17:00 and 24:00 … soo … i would start a little poll .. but the forum does not have this function and nobody likes extern polls … so … lets make it 1998 style …

      as we rememeber …UTC is the time the english use on there rainy little island … everybody else has to use UTC+- something

      so … if you are in the west of australia or china its UTC+8, USA eastcoast UTC-5, westcoast UTC-8, most of europe +1, russia something between +3 and and +12 …

       

      as i am in the middle of europe … its +1 .. sooooo … my main play time within the week is about 17:00 and 20:00 UTC+1 … means its about 01:00 and 04:00 for you there down under … and 05:00 to 08:00 for NZ …

      I am in the U.S. in the Rockies so UTC -7. That being said I work nights so during the week I am on 23:00 to 0200 or later. Weekends I generally play late at night as well because I sleep in. Its funny Aurelius I had figured you were a German because I saw you misspell fokus when it should be focus. I spent some time in Landstuhl when I was in the Army and many of the Germans I worked with had some of the same tendencies. I also had a roommate here in the States that was from Berlin. Anyway off topic rambling I may see you around is you in game name the same as here? Cheers!

      Hey guys, calling in from a +13UTC zone – daylight savings just recently changed over, which makes the power play tick just that little bit more annoying.

      My game time most nights would usually start about 07:00 UTC, or 8pm local time. Kids &/or work permitting…

      UTC +11 (Aust Eastern Daylight [savings] Time)
      Normally, I’d be in-game somewhere from 8PM local time, but of late it’s been around 10PM before I can get on


      Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!

      I’m on that rainy little island (which is actually a lot smaller than this map shows) so it’s UTC for me 🙂

      Its funny Aurelius I had figured you were a German because I saw you misspell fokus when it should be focus.  

      yea .. to be true … sometimes i make that intentionally … mostly with ‘reaktor’ *hehe*.

      (mostly to to underline that i am not a nativespeaker and i so i am forgiven for making stupid errors :D)
      the thing is that german and english use a lot of words the same way, because most of them have the same root. (like with deer and tier(=ger: animal)) in the cases of <fokus, reaktor, englisch, korrekt> and so on .. its a bit of a pain to find errors, because your head just switches and thinks its spelled right 😉

      its a pain with words that are spelled exactly the same, but mean different things (“ich will” means “i want” and not “i will”)

      well .. and i am an engineer … i am good with math, not languages 😀

      my in game name is aurelius julian … you should find me in the damorgs group. i am always happy to fly in a wing 🙂

       

      ah, and regarding language … i was just wondering why all of you guys down under could pronounce “schnellenstein” so absolutly perfect in teamspeak … big respect from my side for that!
