@GoldBird8956276 said in Can some scheduled Urgent Quests be East Coast friendly?:
Yeah would be nice if the times were revised to something along the lines of 5;00 AM (PDT) to 9:00 PM (PDT).
Sleep is important and prob a majority of people are asleep during 10:00 PM (PDT) to 2:30 AM (PDT) so maybe just replace those time periods and move the unscheduled UQ into that time period where there are more schedule UQ into time periods where more people are awake/playing ( 5:00 AM (PDT) to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Look, here;s the thing for me as an East Coast player..
I game at night, its hot where i live & i cant game during the day much for half the year. A LOT of good players are online around same time when i am, I generally begin a gaming session around 8 or 10pm, OR as late as midnight. my sessions generally end around 3-6am EST. there are rarely more than 2 or 3 UQ during this period.
& i'd personally rather see MORE rather than LESS, as it did feel like there was more UQ and events this same "time-frame" for me when i briefly played JP ~5years ago.
I was playing with my friend in Hawaii last night & i noticed this morning between 10am-12pm there were 3 UQs. >.< Which is perhaps cool for Hawaii or if i still wokeup to watch SatAM Sonic (jk that was on at 5am) ...
but yeah, idk how many people on the East Coast are up and gaming regularly at 10am either. (8am PST) aside for weekends?
I'm sure there are some though regardless, as I seen em lol
Basically what I'm suggesting is to increase their frequency a bit, regardless the time of day. it's kinda odd to me having 3 UQ within 2hours just before Noon EST, but sometimes less than 3 during the entire 9hour window for East Coast night-time gamers.
I get it, a lot of people are asleep. but there are people who have reasons they cannot game during the day. due to their work hours, school, or other obligations. etc. (there is an ingame Alliance recruitment preference for night owls)
I just hope there will be more UQ (& events) available throughout all times of the "day" and that neither Sega or the PSO community would forget about us night owls too.
Please and Thank you
~edit ~ idea.. the old JP schedule ~
Can the "night owls" receive a schedule like what is happening during JP in the daytime
AND take that same schedule, but subtract 12hours, that would theoretically be best schedule for EST during the day..
BUT move that just one more hour, so its more in line with Central time, half between east & west.. & that should be the simplest way to make it relatively fair for everyone in NA, yes?
I haven't looked at how much the JP schedule has or hasn't changed in the last few years. but in theory, wouldn't this be a pretty fair solution?
also @John-Paul-RAGE I'd consider "universal availability" between 5pm & 12am.
which is ironically fairly close to your 3pm PDT with my 5pm EST. although most people that are out of highschool generally work till 5 & i wasn't specific about timezones with "universal availability" just that from after work hours is when people start, and they end whenever is reasonable enough per person to acquire sleep for the next day. (average worker common is midnight. although where i personally live, 3am is equally as common)
not disagreeing with your point, i just think a 4hour window is way too brief. especially when many have to drive an hour home, eat, washup n all that other stuff first.
