Grailwars : Start time change by week (EU)

  • Grailwars : Start time change by week (EU)

    At the moment we have 2x grailwars in a week. Every Saturday 21:00 hour and every Wednesday at 12:00 o'clock. (EU countries) Some players have problems with both time frames.

    The easiest solution is to change the start times weekly. So first week Wednesday 12:00, next week 21:00 hour. Saturday first week 21:00 hour, next week 12:00.
    This way more people will have the chance to compete once in a while.

    A second wish is a change from Saturday to Sunday. Saturday is a day people need to do a lot of things: during the day shopping, go to sportclubs with their kids. In the evening people go to parties, visit friends & family. So Saturday isn't a great day for something intensive like grailwars.
    Sunday is for a lot more players a lazy day. A day more people are hanging at their couch and have time to play koc.

    We do understand we cannot make everybody happy, but with the same time every week it will always be the same people that are unhappy. That's not fair!

    So:
    1. Start time of grailwars should change by week.
    2. Wednesday and Sunday as new grailwars days


    We hope to see the change as soon as possible!

    Best regards,

    Cicero
    On behalve of the united Dutch allies, working side-by-side to improve the game we all like to play!

              I sort of agree and sort of disagree there will always be players that have a problem with the time no matter what they do . cause there will be conflicting schedules the best thing kabam can actually do to satisfy as many players as they can is to have na and eu servers to have separate times And there should be 2 for each but even then there will be problems as of current the gw they are 1:00 game time which is an hour after day change on Wednesday and 1900 game time Saturday which is around mid day . rotating times would be worse then one on Wednesday used to be 1300 game which was early in the morning and less people showed does it still need work yes. A week day probably isn't the best time to do a gw they should more do 1 Saturday and 1 Sunday.

                I too believe that Euro and North American regions should have separate times. This would allow a better resolution to time-of-day and day-of-week complaints.

                The current way of changing the time around for all servers is what I call "spreading the misery". Let's try to do it in a more positive way instead.

                      Hey guys thanks for this suggestion. I will pass it on, I believe the previous times were chosen as that was when most people were playing the game. I will push your feedback forward about this, and see if the game team can try it. As you mention though, since so many folks are from different countries and timezones it's pretty difficult to find optimal times for everyone.

                          The ideal solution would be 2 or 3 time choices for each day, set 6 or 8 hours apart. That would need a redesign of deploying to include a designation for which timeslot the troops are set for deployment.

                            I agree that sundays would be better for most in our alliance than saturdays. The Saturday time has been problemmatic since the beginning, and there have been quite a few comments and threads to that effect.

                            The Wednesday evening time slot is significantly better than the Wednesday morning time slot was, but is still not ideal. We have quite a few UK/EU players in our alliance in 130, and they cannot participate in the Wednesday night Grail Wars because it is the middle of the night for them. Since it is the middle of their night, would be better for many of us in the US to push it 1 or 2 hours later - so 10pm or 11pm start time in east coast US, 7pm or 8pm start time in west coast. We miss our UK/EU contingent, though.

                            It would be great to have a few different time options, as several have suggested. It would also be great if the chancy and vcs could "opt out" the whole alliance from a war if we know we won't have enough on to make it worthwhile. That way alliances wouldn't be penalized if they choose not to compete, nor would they waste the time of another alliance who wanted a war and ended up with one lone outpost on the other side. The matching metrics do seem better, but if you expand to having a choice of several different time slots (which I hope you will!), it would help to not feel obliged to play every single time slot.

                              UK/EU time zones are +4 to +6 or +7 from EDT/EST, so if you choose 5 PM Eastern, it is 9PM to Midnight in Europe. 10 PM Eastern becomes 2 AM to 5 AM.

                              In either case, you will have complaints. For US players, it will be that it is too early as it would interfere with work or weekend afternoons for the early time slot and too late because it interferes with Eastern and Central zones' bedtimes for the later time. For UK/EU, the early time interferes with their bedtime and the later time is in the middle of the night.

                              This does not even address the people in Australia / New Zealand.

                              A Vice-Chancellor+ opt-out is a decent idea, but you introduce the potential for causing turmoil inside alliances as the minority who cannot make the majority's selected times could feel excluded. The amount of people with hurt feelings would be smaller in scale, so it at first seems viable, but one big question is what does it do to the match-making?

                              This is the problem with rushing an idea into a game that is played with too little regional grouping. If European or Oceanic players weren't in the mix with North American (or Western Hemisphere?) players, then it is more localized and would have less chance for these time-related complaints.

                              In other words, this discussion should have taken place in the design phase or in very early beta so many months ago. Now it is a game-wide mess.
