I think that is Stupid that people on the East Coast do not get any afternoon time on the weekends instead of having to be up to all hours of the night to do clan battles.  War Gaming should be able to be a bit more flexible on this and I basically find it as flipping us all off with these Clan Battle Times!!!!  War Gaming NEEDS TO GET A CLUE!!!!!

I'm fairly sure that the times are picked based on server traffic times.  You also need to keep in mind that during the week, CBs start during west coast working and dinner hours...

How is being up from 7:30pm EST to 11:30pm EST that much of an issue?  It is not like you have to play past midnight.  A good portion of the clan war playerbase are from the west coast and it is already inconvenient enough that clan wars starts while many people in the west coast are still at work or in school (summer classes) and it interferes with dinner hours.

Having limited time windows in the first place makes even more gated which in turns makes it even moronic to limit a unique ship (instead of something cosmetic) as it's reward.

Don't understand why it's so limited? :Smile_amazed:

Look how season two of Clan battles went...we hit a new high...for one day...then numbers plummeted....

From the beginning to end of Clan battles, we lost 30% of our peak traffic, so how do you think extending hours would affect that?

Some of us still work for a living and can't be back home before 9-10PM sometimes.

Cuts into the Strip Club hours on the weekends only leaves 2 good hours instead of the entire night lmbo.

I think they should split the day up and have 2 sessions one for the early birds and one for the night crew.

Calm down man, you're going to break your exclamation mark key, and you need that key to spam HE.

Seriously though, they know there's an issue with having only a specific dedicated time block, and it doesn't work well for everybody. However, in NA alone, there are 4 time zones to account for, so if you're asking for an afternoon Eastern slot, that's like 10am on a Sunday on the west coast, which is no good.

Their long-term solution supposedly involves allowing cross-server play so you can catch whatever prime time band works best for you, but that's a lot of tech development, and won't be happening for some time.

On the contrary, the limited hours makes the gated reward of a unique ship because it drives people to commit and be on the top of their game at those times.  Have you ever thought about it that away instead of just being blinded by your anti gated unique ship reward stance?
