It's always been the first game after five PM Pacific. If a game happens to start at 4:58 then it's unfortunate, but the third game may go past six.

If popular opinion wants that to be otherwise, I'd like to know now to warn BWL peeps for the next round. 666 got his wires crossed and thought a new game was going to start at X:58 tonight. It didn't happen. But what if?

This is a torny issue. I have seen that once 6 PM Pacific comes about folks tend to leave.

Not sure what you all want to do.

But what is decided here should apply to the Ranked DDM also.

No! NOT thorny!

Let's just make it official. I think we once did or at least attempted to make a pre-5 PM Pacific DDM the official one. It's not a problem as far as I'm concerned. We just need to make it real. You could say that the first official clan match or DDM will from now on be the first that occurs after 4:50 PM Pacific. Or not. I just don't want anyone attempting to delcare a game official before 5 on the server when it hasn't been talked about here first.

I second the motion for the 4:50 start time for both the Clan battles and Ranked DDM's.

On the east side of town, makes no difference: 7:50 Eastern I'll take... it's you guys the ones that have to start earlier... some actually work on weekends, as for me, I'll third the motion if needed... and if I have a voice :P

BTW, for the sake of straining gnats: A start time is the second that the new map pops up, right? Should 4:50 PM strike during the cool down of a previous game then it's too late, yes?

I'll go along with the official start being the next map after x;50(ex map(a) ends at say x;51 then map(b) would be the official start)

I'm against it, I see no reason to change the start time and confuse more people.

3rded for the same logic. It's always been on the hour and no problems! Yes it might overrun, as it always has! Everyone in a rush?

So is it three for, three against and one vote for Wednesday afternoon at 3?
