    Server Downtime Daylight Savings Time

    Hi,

    Next weekend, November 2nd, marks the start of the US Daylight Savings. The Daylight Savings' time change can cause serious syncing issues between the servers and the game clients on players' devices, resulting in potential frustrations such as buildings showing up collectible at the wrong time. In order to minimize these potential issues, we are shutting down the game from 10:30 PM Pacific Time. Absolutely no players will have access to the game during this period. Events will keep the same start and end times, however the goals required have been adjusted to reflect the shorter time allotment.

    The game will officially shut down by 11pm Pacific. In the final hour prior to the shutdown, event actions will be shut off. This is to ensure that no one gets caught mid-action once the game shutdown begins. Access to the game will return between 3am and 4am Pacific.

    I do not think Gree anticipated that and was only concerned themselves with US clocks.

    Or they might be testing the time change in Europe this weekend to make adjustments for the US time change.

    I think they "forget" people play this game 24-hours world-wide and run these events 24/7.

    UK is normally 8 hours ahead of pacific, but for this week as our clocks went back last weekend means we are 7 hours ahead. Does the shutdown occur using PST or PDT as it affects when it happens here?

    That would be between 11am and 12pm GMT. So no, they are not late yet.

    Is anyone going to be surprised when Gree misses their own deadline?
