No, the game does not adjust for daylight savings. Yes, your payouts will be an hour different starting tomorrow. No, they will not be changing it. Not even "soon".

Just trying to get out front on this one. ;)
In game name: Lucas Gregory - - - -"Whale blah grump poooop." - Ouchie

In game guild: DeathStarVentDesigners - DVD for short.
I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

  • Wait so your saying my payout will be an hour different. An hour different today's time, tomorrows time. I'm so confused.

    :D
  • This is actually better for me, gives me an extra hour
  • End DST!

    -t. Arizonan no longer in Arizona

    I wonder if I could drum up enough support for an obnoxious protest.

    Just like convincing the whole world to give up the imperial measurement system. Oh wait I guess the US will not be leading the charge lol.

    No malice intended just poking fun guys

    Florida just passed the bill to eliminate the time change for us not sure if it's gonna take affect yet but soon no more for us
  • What's crazy is not even the whole country...and even some citoes and counties within a state dont observe DST LOL
  • I personally appreciate DST. Never really understand why people get so angry about it.

    Folks also don't get why we still use old units, for that matter either. Metric is definitely better for science and things that require precision, but Standard is better for practical things--an inch is about the size of your thumbpad, a yard is about the size of a stride, and Fahrenheit is better for measuring temperature and its relative comfort for people.

    Besides, it's all arbitrary anyway. A meter used to be defined as 1/1,000,000,000 the number of steps it takes to get from Paris to the North Pole, now it's defined as the distance a wavelength of light emitted from a cesium atom travels in 1/c of a second, where c is the speed of light. None of it matters, it's just what you're used to! :P

    Sort of. Florida voted to stay on the time change year round. The rest of the country is currently about to come off of DST.

    Daylight saving never changers your arena payout. Nor does changing your timezone. To many possibilities for exploits. This has always been the case.
    Besides, the US may be moving the clock, but it's not a coordinated global thing. Why should I, as an Israeli player, have to change my PO because the US changed their clock? Why should a German or Japanese player do that? There are other countries and other players out there.

    At the end of the day, the game is ultimately controlled by a USA based company, the Americans will do what they see fit.

    Well that's just Prime.

    Fahrenheit is better for measuring temperature and its relative comfort for people.

    Celsius is more logical and much more comfort to people.

    love the reasoning behind standard being better for anything. Same reasoning applies to why americans used the word "sidewalk" instead of "pavement". ;)

    we really do need to get rid of that. The Metric system is so much better.

    It changes mine by one hour each, but thanks for the misleading post.
