    I said this in another whining post from a US based player.
    In case you missed the post, the start-finish times were adjusted so that the AUSTRALIAN Kixeye staffers who fix the targets etc could wake up, have breakfast, commute to work and begin fixing issues as soon as they appeared, instead of hours of broken targets that caused players to rant and whine in Forum, FB etc
    Previously, players in other countries had to work around the old start-finish times.

    They never complained about start-finish times.

    Now that the boot is on the other foot, it's amazing how many US based players can't manage their game play time to suit.

    Some of you are such selfish buggers, aren't you?

    Why do they need to change?
    Who really thinks they will still be grinding through this by the end of the weekend and therefore missing anything by the different start?
    How many are actually trading missed time on a Monday morning for missed time on a Wednesday night?

    If you dont like the start time, pick a world with a better one, you have a 4 hour window with the rolling starts (or did they kill the rolling starts off?)

    sounds reasonable then why not extend the raid to 5 or 6 days so those of us who do not have M-F jobs have a chance to actually play

    I use to grind a lot on Sunday and Monday as i got off early on Sunday and was off all day on Monday so yes some of us would benefit to better start/end

    If you're not going to make a point, stop talking.
    They extended the raid, wagon jumper - you can stop whining now, it's a bit embarrassing...it's only a game.

    Everyone has the same amount of time to play in.
    I'm in New Zealand.
    Previously, raids started for me at either 4am to 8am or thereabouts, depending on what world I was in.
    So, towards the end, if I wanted to be sure I had enough points, I had to finish up in the evening or wake up early to smash out the remainder.

    Did I complain about that? No. & even if I was short, I didn't hop into comms begging for help, because I really hate doing that--helping me means someone else is spending money on my behalf. I don't like that, because I feel a debt has been incurred, one that I can't reasonably expect to repay.

    You claim, in essence, that those who work in the weekends need more time? You've still got other days & nights to play, AND coin to use, because you're working, vs how many in the game who aren't able to work due to health, retirement or other?

    Next raid is the end of the cycle, so Kix is granting your wish, 6 days.

    I prefer less seat time + less bugs/glitches (i've crashed way less this raid than any other) VS more seat time and crashing in 50% of the targets....

    Kudos to the Aussie game team!!!

    Now that kix has extended the raid by one day, that should fix every ones issues, re the start time.

    I am in the uk, the new start time, effectively cost me about eight hours playing time, because of work / sleep etc.
    I understand the reasons for the change, and I also understand that a lot of the world was penalised, with the old start time.
    Now we are all in a win win scenario.

    Why did they extend the Raid, "

    OBJECTIVE

    Begins: Wednesday, February 13th @ 3:00PM PST (rolling start)
    Ends: Sunday, February 17th @ 3:00PM PST (rolling end)" It says we still have 23 Hours & 32 min. left.

    This is a Global game some where there will always be an inconvenient start/finish time, and no the whole universe dose not rotate about the USA

    But there are so many in the US who thinks that the world revolves around them--news flash, US citizens, you make 5% of the world population.
    So, in reality, you have a very small voice in the world, no-one cares :wink:

    I'm in the middle of the US 2 hours ahead of pst.  No matter when the start time is I still play when I can.  We all do.  This is a global game.  If they changed the times so that their staff who fixes the problems can get to work so it can be done as soon as the raid starts, GREAT.  What a way of taking care of business.

    Love the new start end times. Before unless I had the day off The start time would begin during work or while I was sleeping as I now work 3rd shift. So it starting at 6 pm EST is right around the time I get up. Previous job it was around the time I got home from work. Previous start time was hours too early.
