    Start time listing rant

    Phenteo is gone and immediately good practice is down the drain?

    For this month the Hex VIP article only lists PST dates, which is crap and totally out of whack with where people come from.

    Why I am so enraged? Because I entered a Sealed VIP at 10.45 my time, thinking it would start at 12. When I came back after cleaning the kitchen (paying dues to the family so I make Saturday afternoon time at the PC instead of with the kids, duh), I had lost the first round.

    Now that wouldn't be so bad in a constructed tournament, but here it means I now would have to play with a crappy 302 card deck.

    And technically it's all my fault (our guild events page somehow displayed the time wrong, too - at least I read it wrong), so no, I won't bother customer service with it.

    PLEASE, HXE, post all times for PST and GMT (or MET) as you habitually did before.

    +1 for gmt times
    so many times have I anticipated things wrong already, so I just usually ask in chat now how many hours left until start.

    Honestly it should be on the site though. I had to do manual conversion twice this weekend, and I was still worried I would miss them. Especially since the DST switch is happening this weekend for most of EU (to my knowledge), having clear times is more important than any other time.

    i think this is the only place in the world that is actually using PST

    western parts of us/canada/mexico all switch to PDT

    the rest of that longtitude seems to be uninhabited water

    Yeah, well, I haven't been playing tournaments for three months now and since I "knew" that the tournament would start at noon, I didn't check in game (or rather I saw "11 a.m.", but assumed it would be GMT, as that would have fit my assumption).

    But as I already wrote: Yeah, it's my fault, but it's still very annoying (aren't those always the most annoying? :P). It wouldn't have happened if the article had contained the "correct" dates. Not blaming HXE for my mistakes, just wishing for more extensive times in the future, as we have them before!

    No reason for them not to have a world clock on there so everyone knows the right time.

    I just look in client as its easier than trying to figure it out.

    what if they start using countdown timers instead of clocks? those are universal.

    The client listed times are correct. With how little traffic and posting that goes on here, It would seem some of the better good faith practices in news articles for this community still do not reach the larger audience playing HEX. I understand your gripe and need for consistent practice in how information is shared, but the writing we need to be concerned with is always client side.
