It'd be more convenient for CCP to move Australia a couple timezones than moving downtime a couple hours.


allright my Aussie brothers, get out your paddles we've got some work to do.


tbh though I've learned to work around it, you'd be suprised how easy it is to sneak stuff through low sec on a weekday around down time.

Cant see any changes happening, and cant be bothered reading the counter arguments,etc..
Moved from the UK to Aus a couple of years ago tho...
And yeah, i really do feel the DT break.It cuts in right in the middle of what was my UK Peak play time.So if it could be put back to when most Aus folk are having dinner,beers/whatever..and most Euros are in bed or at work,WIN..but i doubt CCP give in to that kind of player crying..
P.S pls nerf.. nano,falcun*,bumpgeddon,passive drakes..

If CCP wanted to be fair, it should make DT appear at a random time every day.

I wonder if eve players got a job ...

When i read your posts it seems like you are all students which do not care about a predictable sensefull work time.

Did you ever considered, that there needs to be personal available during such a time frames?

How about: "Lets block all australians" as solution? They are to far away and as such they got a high tendency to cause lag in fleet fights. Would this be a propper solution suiting your taste? Its not always black and white. Everything has its benefits and its drawbacks. The current solution balances most of this influences well enough.

But all the kiwis live over here. Don't they?

Just kidding m8. Time honoured tradition of Aussies and UnZuds bagging each other out......oops, did again Rolling Eyes

To OP, in the 2 1/2 years I've been playing I have not once read or heard an Aussie/Kiwi complain about the DT time over here. Sure it sucks but we live with it. Be it dinner, shower....whatever, theres always something else to do. It's only an hour of game time and we realise it is necessary.

So tell your mates to stop acting like bloody kids and find something to do at DT. Tell 'em another aussie said that Laughing

Got to look on the bright side. Solo pvp is alive and well just before and after DT, way less blobtards.

Totally unnecessary. The downtime lets addicted Aussie's get some food. And we all know Aussie's are weak. So they get addicted more than anyone else. Therefore they need downtime in the middle of the day.

On a serious note, let's let an Aussie make the thread.

What like the continent full of infectious diseases?

Or the continent covered in nuclear radiation?

Or the continent that has a rampant and dangerous drug trade?

Or the continent that runs its entire foreign policy on the bible belt?

I'll stick with my continent full of the most deadly animals on earth thanks.

Can anyone who have posted in here say that moving DT 2-3 hours earlier would negatively affect their game time (well besides La Ruca that is)? Yes it's sad that this modification affects those in Hawaii, but it's really a very small place compared to australia.


Australia: F*ck Hawaii, they're smaller than us.

The rest of the world: F*ck Australia, they're smaller than us.

Hawaii: Haha, noobs.

I live with it, patch nights (like now) are the worst.
I appreciate CCP not Daylight Saving on the server end, a 2 hour shift every six months would be much worse.
Upside, I get to jump back on right after DT.

I suggest just giving Australia to Lex Luthor as he demanded and letting him run his own EVE server, problem solved.

If you look at the "players online" Grpah, you'll see that the players online is 0 between 1100-1200 (DT) - THATS why CCP picked that hour. =PVery Happy

Given your government's "Make the people pretend that sex and violence and political dissent dont exist" policy on the internet, you might want to reconsider that last.

I have recently moved from UK to Oz.

As mentioned above Aus players can exploit a few of their own timezone advantages - I regularly send convoys of trade through low sec when there are low numbers of players around. - In fact it is quite interesting mapping out the intel of various risky routs and seeing how regular pirate parties disapear in the early hours of european/us morning time.....

On the down time side it actually means I spend time with the wife once the kids are in bed and don't get it in the neck for being on that blasted game all evening!!....Very Happy
