    Are you kidding? Wasn't this supposed to be at 7.30 Western European Time? Looks like it took place at 7.30 Central European Time, so it was over by the time a bunch of us got there.

    Great

    edit: but well done to all those who participated and won, hope you had a good time.

    I'm all for events (and grateful to EAMythic for holding the event), but the timetabling should be accurate.

    It would be handy if they would post the times in GMT too to help avoid confusion. *shrug* Won't happen though... well, grats to those that made it and won though [​IMG]

    Well, the UO Herald site says:

    Drachenfels: Wednesday, Feb. 20th, 1:30PM (7:30pm local Western European Time zone)

    and WET kind of IS GMT...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_European_Time

    but it looks like EA Mythic got it an hour wrong! [​IMG]

    <---- sulky English person (England being one of the few places that's actually IN the WET zone!)

    But then again, I probably don't really care, I'm just having a really bad year and it would have been a fun diversion.

    Hope everyone had fun [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm happy for the runic changes etc and the greater dragons (once I get round to going and looking for / dying to / taming one of them!) [​IMG]

    Which is wrong. It should have said 6.30PM WET (GMT) or 7.30PM CET.

    I pointet it out on U.Hall and got the reply that the event startet 1.30 EST, and that's it. [​IMG]

    1.30PM EST is 7.30PM, not WET but CET.

    Next time when you have questions on the time of a event, just ask around here and we can convert the time to every time zone everyone needs.

    Don't be afraid to ask stuff here, we don't bite! Not often anyway! [​IMG]

    Thanks...

    ...but I didn't have any questions about the time of the event... the time as posted in this forum and on the UO Herald site said it would be at 7.30 WET!

    It seems a shame that EAMythic already knew (because Piotr had told them) that the time had been miscalculated, but no-one thought to update UOHerald.

    LOL

    Nevermind.

    A general advice i gave myself over the years with events (playerrun or devs) I always go a hour early! [​IMG]

    Yeah, but an hour early?!

    If they had only posted the times in US terms I would have converted it to UK time myself. As they posted the event time in UK time, I assumed they would hold it at that time and didn't bother double checking. It seems they got the time zones wrong.

    It doesn't matter, it's just a bit daft.
