So, we're supposed to remember -11 UTC.......uh huh. The point is it's too confusing and difficult the way it is for everyone except maybe you. Yes, I remember you are smart and all the rest of us aren't.
You are supposed to remember -11 UTC in summer [your winter], and -10 UTC in winter [your summer]..easy...
Yes, it is confusing, but my proposition is that it is confusing whatever you do. I have absolutely no idea what time work can wait/ bloody mary or 3/5s run, because I never bump into them. They are out of my time zone, and I have no need to know, so I dont.
When I was updating the schedule, 4 times per year, for tourneys I didnt know the time of, it was a freaking nightmare...
I agree in principle that stating UTC is good - I argued for it, as I have mentioned. When sixite writes the spreadsheet to make it easy, you can post the updates 4 times yearly and everything will be super easy.
Until then, it wont be so easy if
- and this is the big IF, you insist on playing tourneys out of your time zone. If you play the ones that are in your time zone, they are easy to find, and if you are up regurlarly at odd hours, you will 'bump into them'. If you arent, then well, the problem is yours, not the schedulers.
As for smart, yes, I am very smart - I am not gonna beat around that one, and it is still a nightmare trying to make this right, let alone easy. I will settle for right and not so easy.
It is very easy to sit and say 'it should be like this', and then sit back and wait for someone to make it so. I am not going to 'make it so', because it is too hard for me, even thugh I am smart - if anyone knows an easier way, then I fully support that.
