I will sign up with :zane: :setsuki: :onimaru: for Team USA.


#3

midnight is an awful starting time for an euboi. seems i’m destined to never take part in this


#4

The match time can be adjusted. The problem is that people in Asia are on the opposite side of the clock. For example, I believe @Bob199 is in Taiwan. His time would be 6 am. If I move it any earlier, it will be even worse for them.

As the sign-ups come in, I will have a better idea of how to deal with this. For now, the start time is not set in stone. It may be adjusted by a few hours.

Edit:

I could move it to 11am EDT. This would be pretty early for the people on the west coast. I would appreciate any opinions that potential players may have about this issue.


#5

I’m in for Team World with Troq, Onimaru, and Setsuki.


#6

I’ll (perhaps stupidly) play for team USA, with vendetta, Zane, and Menelker.


#7

Count me back in for team world. Team is :troq: :valerie: and :degrey:


#8

If I don’t get any qualifying sign-ups from Asia, the start time will be adjusted to 3pm EDT. This should help the people in the EU.

The event should run a little over an hour,

Edit: Also, paging @Thelo. I am pretty sure your from Canada. Would you like to play? I might as well make sure Team World has all the Troqs. That will help Team USA to have a singular focus.


#9

If USA actually woke up early for once , then EU would have an afternoon start =b


#10

This might happen Bob. We shall see. Are you signing up?


#11

But of course

:disguisedmonkey: / :valerie: / :persephone:


#12

Alright, the time has been moved to 12pm EDT. This is more fair for all involved. Hey @Legion, I think this should fit into your time requirements.


#13

I might have to speak to work then. I generally finish at 1pm EDT on Saturdays.


#14

Well, I don’t know. 12pm EDT, is still midnight for @Bob199. Bob, is this alright with you? I could move it too 11am EDT. @Caralad , keep me updated on your situation with work. I really want you to be able to play. International scheduling is difficult. We will do the best we can.


#15

Well work for me on Saturdays is usually 11am BST to 6pm BST. I can see if I can ask to shift swap and finish a bit earlier, or have it off. But I’ll have to speak to some people.


#16

That is some next level effort. I bow to your hardcore spirit.


#17

The earlier the better


#18

10 AM EDT is the start time. No further time changes will be made.


#19

Then put me on a tentative hold for now then as unless I have that day off I can’t make it.


#20

Ehh there’s a chance I can cast this. Uncertain.
I have work the next morning.
