What about get a CET time or a GMT time. Once again forgetting us EU residents!

Really? Does he have to post a list of all the possible time zones for something that was going to occur in a matter of minutes? It's a live blog...that means it's going to start updating momentarily and continue updating. It's not exactly something you have to pencil into your schedule.

It would have made more sense than three U.S zones, since you guys have a much better chance of knowing what they work out to in your local timezone.

It was mostlikey a joke having to do with the fact that Adam bothered to do EST, PST and Central but skipped MTN. Most people would just do EST and PST.

@Al: Maybe, but (just like you) there's a good chance Adam doesn't know the conversion off the top of his head.According to Google, the panel started at 8:30 pm GMT. You know, in case you guys don't have Google over there.

There is a really simple way to solve your problem. Look at the clock on your computer. What time is it saying? Ok... now, we will have to use a little logic. We know that this blog is getting updated live. We also know the current time in our location. We can therefor conclude that the local time in your area is the converted time of the time posted on the blog.

@nangusYes most do Eastern and Pacific, but Mr. Holisky lives in Central time, so I'm sure it's just natural for him to write that as well.

Point taken, everything should be about you.

An American blog by American writers about an American game made by an American company should do a better job of making sure you don't feel excluded just because you happen to live outside of America. Yeah, if I was them I'd put a ton of effort into that.Maybe a better solution would just be to resist the urge to feel slighted at the drop of a hat?I know it's hard, but seriously, they're not out to hurt your feelings. I promise.

You're quite right Grovin, pointing out the pointlessness of mentioning the time zones only one hour apart while skipping GMT was being a crybaby.I guess it's harder for Americans to add by 1 than for everyone else to root around changing their clock settings. (Huh.. this Reductio ad absurdum is fun, I get why everyone's doing it.)

You know what's profoundly rad? Analog-style atomic clocks. We're coming up on a time-change you know, and I'm not going to have to lift a finger to set the one I have. It'll totally adjust itself. Like Magic.Pretty swanky, eh?

By "we", you mean you, of course."He said something wasn't about him! That means he doesn't think it should be about us! That GMT universal time is the tool of the devil!" That's your cue to downvote this.
