Did they just drop the lightning rounds early?

    Daylight Savings Time now here in the US

    And in the UK

    Yeah, DST is nice and all but they are an hour early compared to last week when the DST was already enacted. I was surprised last week when they were on 'normal time' (odd hours start in CET)... but seeing them appear on the even hours now makes very little sense. FYI DST in CET was set a week before North America.

    Is this the new time or does it change back next week? I can never remember.
  • Punter1Punter1 Posts: 357 Mover and Shaker
    Should change back next week - there's usually this odd week when they forget about the change!

    Yeah, it's definitely weird.  I was expecting this last week since DST was 11/4 in the US.  But, when I saw the odd hr lightning rounds, I thought they finally figured it out... oh well... should be back to odd hrs next week...

    @Brigby
    Can we get official word if this is the new normal time for lightning rounds?  This is the second week in a row it's starting on even hours instead of odd.  Thanks.

    So... Lightning Rounds are starting on the even hours again this week I just noticed. In the CET time zone this is unusual as they used to start on the uneven hours.

    @Brigby, are you able to tell if this is a permanent change or if this will be changed when possible and it's just an oversight? Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Darn... Waddles beat me to it.

    @Waddles_Pines @StevO-J Hmm good question. I'll ping the team, and update everyone once I get an answer.

    This happens every year, LRs do not observe DST
  • KahmonKahmon Posts: 482 Mover and Shaker
    I thought this would be an easy question to answer.
    Guess we'll find out tomorrow.
  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 1,660 Chairperson of the Boards
    I guess we're back to normal?
  • BrigbyBrigby Posts: 5,942ADMINISTRATORS Site Admin
    Hi Everyone. I spoke with the team and it would appear that 1pm EST is supposed to be the correct time for Lightning Rounds to begin. This was still the case with the LR right after Daylight Savings, however it would appear that an unexpected error has occurred with the other rounds. The team will be sure to plan around this next time. Thank you for understanding!

    The team's plans < reality.

    C'mon guys, figure this stuff out, pls.
  • Daredevil217Daredevil217 Posts: 1,660 Chairperson of the Boards
    1 Eastern is 10 Pacific (my time).  I just logged on to catch some seed teams and found that there are 30 minutes left in the round.  Did I miss something?
  • StevO-JStevO-J Posts: 643 Critical Contributor
    So.... new feature, alternating start times each week on LR's?  ;)
  • Screen MonkeyScreen Monkey Posts: 105 Tile Toppler
    Started an hour early again (5pm GMT instead of 6pm GMT).

    You didn't miss anything, the guy who has to push the LR button has still not changed his clock to winter time, so they started an hour early... again. Guess it's a different guy from last week?

    So we had 2 early weeks, 1 correct week and now another early week, bringing us to a grand total of 1 week in 4! Sorry D3/Demiurge, I still enjoy your game, but I really can't put any money in it if you can't even get these simple things right.

    I used to think LRs were these random occurances, that just popped up whenever..... This thread is doing very little to dispel that ;)

    Well, I guess like real lightning, they can strike at any time!
