Timing of Events like Arca and CS

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

 

Loving this server and community, just discovered it about 2 months back. The community is great and game is working smoothly, except for one thing:

The timing of the major guild vs guild events like Arca and Castle Siege are somewhat unfriendly for Asia time zones. Is it possible to adjust these events by 1 or 2 hours earlier, so us working adults who are donating/supporting the server don't need to stay up crazy hours?

 

Please comment or +1 if you agree, and please feel free to disagree as well. It's tough to find a time that works for everyone for a global server such as this.

How about Europe? 90% of my guild wouldn't be able to attend events because everyone is working obviously. For example Medusa is already 17:30 which is like you get home from work (work mostly ends at 17:00) and you have to get online right away to make it. That just won't work for Europe, I get that there are many players from different time zones but some events used to be at like 20:00, 21:00 server time and it was already adjusted so it would be more friendly for everyone, you just have to understand that there is no one side, you want it more friendly for Asia but then Europe players can't attend at all, it's completely different when all you have to do is not go to sleep for extra hour but people can't skip work, I hope you understand what I mean. Castle Siege could be like an hour earlier that's not a problem because it's Sunday but not Arca War 😞

You make a lot of sense, there's definitely lots of thinking going into these event timings, just like my global calls for work, it's impossible to accommodate everyone. Medusa is one such example that is not as friendly as Arca or CS for Europe. About the sleep aspect, that's probably just me because I'm a parent and the schedule is pretty inflexible, so that's probably just 1 guy being affected.

Would you consider an alternate week setup where you cycle through different timings for events every other week? 

  • Week 1: Arca 16:30 Thursday, Castle Siege 18:30 Sunday
  • Week 2: Arca 18:30 Thursday, Castle Siege 16:30 Sunday
  • rinse and repeat or a different variation

Potential benefits:

  1. Different groups of people around the world get to enjoy the events on alternate weeks, might capture a larger audience across the globe this way too.
  2. There is also a little diversity in the experience during alternate weeks, where you get different groups of people turning up for events, and different dynamics in the fights fluctuate across weeks.
  3. Allows for some A:B testing to see which timings actually yield higher response rates.

It's just a suggestion and of course we leave the implementation up to you folks!

Yes, lots of people have no problems. Back before I became a parent, the timings as of now are perfect and I never had to time-manage so much.

That past life I had is now a privilege. 

The people that I've interacted with so far have been inclusive, generous and mature (in my guild at least), and I brought this up hoping to speak for the others that have also added +1.

You might not have an issue with the time, but does that mean others that have some issues cannot raise suggestions for further improvements?

Stairs are no problem to most of us, but not to wheelchair ridden people. Communities and other types of software or games have added features to be even more inclusive, such as simple colour-blind mode or text-assist for those with hearing difficulties. They did not tell them to "just go play other games" or "use another software". The right business decision is also the right decision for the wider community - to be inclusive. With that, your community grows together with the profitability of the project.

If this goes unheard and no change is implemented, so be it. I have spoken, and others have echoed their sentiments.

Hello. We can't do anything with this. we already were changed it, to make it more comfortable for Asian players, and still actual for EU players.

Thanks Arturs. What about CS, perhaps since it's Sunday, it can be slightly earlier?
