pwcn develop just make pwi as the same to pwcn version as possible.
all changes almost are the same as pwcn.
http://w2i.wanmei.com/news/gamenews/20170301/78387.shtml
except one
In pwcn, arena window is 12:00-00:00, while pwi is 00:00-12:00
I believe this change is stupid. Eu players and American players are separated. Eu morning is north American midnight, Eu midnight, is North American night. who play pwi in midnight?
if 12-window can not be changed, I am asking put it to 12:00-0:00 like pwcn, then, we can run it after svs like as usual(Eu player is in night and north american players is afternoon). otherwize, change it back to 24 hour

    I'd prefer 24h of course, but if it's impossible, better to have evening than late night and morning when most people sleep, study or work. I understand it benefits USA population now, but for EU this timing is total fail. Shift it at least 2-3 hours earlier, will be much much better for all. Not that many of americans stays awake to 3am to play game to sacrifice whole EU part for this tiger-27.gif​​

    its 3 am, my eyes are red and burn and we finally finished our battles, with 5 losses in a row because its impossible to focus after long days. great job ruining what was the only fun in this game. thanks for listening to fking china rather than your own community.

    we have a lot less players than PWCN.
    Our Verson has more time zones than PWCN (Which has 1~2)
    We have different events that attract players to do this which run at different times on each server and XServer.
    PWI needs to be kept to its title of International!

    Ok granted 3 of the above points where the same but it was such an important point it was worth saying 3 times!

    funny, your squad Q`d up 4 times after friday midnight, found ONE opponent - my alt venos 1850 squad and then gave up.

    im sure you and the former harshlands had a blast with the new arena times.

    @aphrodita funny because normally at the 24hr window that's normal at our points and if you que up any day but Saturday. You can check other members of DA have 30+ fights with 2100+ so as long as you don't miss the after xtw slot you get a rediculous amount of fights. Sure makes it easier for ppl if they can't work it around the weekdays this doesn't affect many ppl I know. For the most part my squad didn't participate due to us doing other things in real but when I see many of my friends can now get 15+ fights with 2100+ easily I'm very happy with it because before we struggled to even get 10

    @aphrodita and yet ppl of the 2100+ can actually make 15+ fight before we struggled to even get 10 just don't miss the Saturday after xtw timeslot and some people got 30+ fights that's insane imo considering some weeks we could only get 9 fights which sucked because of no reward the 24hr window was terrible imoh

    High score people could finish their fight because something with matchmaking changed/broke.
    My squad score is around 1400 (low) and in 10 out of 15 fights we got matched with squads up to 400 score difference (over 1800).

    @kalystconquerer#0876 please have a look. no reason ignore this poll results for pwi. this is not hard code change. Pretty easy to fix it until pwi doesn't care at all

    Hello!

    I was debating a poll on this, but have been planning anniversary events before I could figure out the best way to format one.

    CN had suggested their time would be inappropriate for our version, so the times were changed here. The 12 hour restriction, as far as I've been told, can not be changed. (And under the 24 hour Colosseum, there were still players who complained that they could not have matches, though this could be the fault of the matchmaking system more than anything)

    I'll be checking the results of this poll periodically throughout the month. I would strongly encourage getting as many players as possible to come in and comment/vote even if it's just like a 1-2 sentence thing. I'll be pulling data on my end for this season anyways, but it doesn't hurt to have additional player input to bring to the table. I can't promise anything will be changed that will please everyone, but I still want to have that feedback for discussion with the devs!

    If i would want to pick perfect timezone for myself, I would chose ops... I mean to vote CET: 12:00-00:00, but that is not the thing, this arena is cross servers,and our server is also from multi countries , I would like to be able to fight along my friends who we try so hard to fit a perfect timezone for all of us and be able to fight other servers. staying up from 1am my time till 5am to have only fight 5 battles.. which means it's not hard only for us to find matches but other servers too, it used to be perfect at 24hr before and I would love to have it back

    It's pretty silly for our servers to be beholden to China's twelve hour restriction when our servers span 9 time zones and all of their servers are on the same timezone. Do they not realize that West Coast servers and the European server are on different hemispheres of the planet?

    Can the time be individually set, not 12 to 0 or 0 to 12, but for example 23:00-11:00, 22:00-10:00 etc? We have time slots which can satisfy whole planet +/- xD 12:00-00:00 would be bad for USA, even worse than it is now for EU.

    @shade13 Like a split timeslot?

    I never thought to ask them about that, perhaps I should do a follow up to see if the 12 hours itself can be scheduled "separately".

    No, not split. It starts at midnight CET now. Can it start at 10pm and end at 10am CET, for example? Way better than waiting for midnight falling asleep and crushing into keyboard and then playing till 2-3am to be done with 15 fights. And such time slot wouldn't affect USA much - it would end at 1 and 4am instead of 3am (west) and 6am (east coast). Keeping it open till 3am and 6am is kinda useless anyway, IMO.

    It will be different days,so no. If it can be splitted then 0:00-10:00 and 22:00-0:00(or 21:50-23:50 or 21:00-23:00), technically it will start and end same day.

    24h window was working fine before and now with the new matchmaking , finding fights should ne no problem.
    I see no reason why not to revert it to 24h.

    If China wants to play stubborn, make timeslot for EU 11.45 - 23.45 to avoid the *new day issue*
