Hello community, dear PlayVIG staff,
I feel like there's an issue going on with the current event system. Let me give you an example:
Recently you have started the "Midnight Madness" Halloween event on October 31st from 9pm to 12am PT. In general I love the idea of events happening, whether it's events tied to a specific game, or special events like these.
However, being from Germany, I realized that events like these are slightly unfair to people from other time zones. In the given example, the times converted to CET result in an event time from 5am to 8am... which is a time range in which no (normal) european is ever able to participate. So this event just went past us without any real chance of participating unless we "deprive" ourselves of our sleep.
My suggestion: Instead of using fixed times for events, lock the times to regions, so events like these get enabled at the same time of the day for each time zone. This would probably enable more players to participate at events - especially at special events like the Midnight Madness.
Thanks for reading, and I hope there is a way to fix this "issue".
