with all the tournaments starting at 16:00 or 18:00 UK time, it is really difficult for me to be able to enter as I struggle to get back from work in time.

 

is it just me or would other people prefer later star times. 

I loved entering these little competitions when they started at 20:00 but now find it infuriating that they now seemed focused at people either without a job or in parts of Europe that the time difference allows them to play.

So why do you think those parts of Europe don't deserve to be able to play?

I didn't say that, so don't try and put words in my mouth

 

but why cant they mix it up so everyone has a chance even putting the 18:00 back an hour once in a while would still allow most people to participate

I can’t see how having a 16:00 and 20:00 start  would prevent them from playing.

Care to elaborate?

If it's focusing UK instead the other parts, then there would be people like OP complaining about the same thing. Poland and such just happen to be biggest countries that play this game in Europe, so it's natural that WG also prefers them.

I agree.

 

There is never any need for all tournaments to start at the same time. Different days could have different start times with these being randomized every week.

 

Not that difficult.

I 100% agree with the OP, they should offer later start times too so that people in the UK who have a job can take part.

So you didn't want to be favored to be able to play, like the other parts of Europe do?

It's not favouring anyone to play if the start times are adjusted to be fair for each nation.

 

That's just called equality, and there is absolutely no reason this shouldn't be implemented

I blame Brexit.

Brexit. It's a one-stop shop for all your European issues. :great:

yeah, starting times at 8 or even 9 pm would suit me.

anything that starts before 7 pm is a no-no.
