I want to play frontline but I am a father and I have kids that I have full responsibility for.

 

but often I don't finish cleaning cooking and getting the kids stuff ready until after 10pm.  I sit down to relax and the mode is over or about to be over.

I know brexit is coming but for now the UK is still in Europe.    Can we play too or do you have to take your ball home so early?

Never, the whole thing is a lie.

 

On topic, i dunno what being in EU has to do with the event hours..

What the OP is trying to say is that Britain runs on UTC (Greenwich Meantime), the rest of continental Europe (with the notable exception of Portugual) runs on Central European Time. Central European Time is UTC +1.

 

Thus 10pm in the UK is 11pm in CET.

 

The OP wants is for WG to give FrontLine another hour at the end for all their UK and Portugual customers.

 

The UK will cease to be part of the EU on 29th March 2019.

Despite leaving the EU the British Isles will remain part of Europe (the continent) and will not leave it unless a large enough tugboat can be found to tow the islands to a different continent. If this occurred Britain might become part of a different time zone, but knowing how perverse we can be we'd likely hold on to UTC for awhile after the tugboat left.

 

Prime Times (Mon-Fri) 15:00 – 22:00 UTC
Prime Times (Sat-Sun) 13:00 – 24:00 UTC

Well I'd like Frontlines to be available outside of the current hours as well, as it clashes with CW and Advances too much - maybe they got burnt by early hours t22sr mission rigging and dont want to run events outside of prime time, or maybe it is too lucrative for players to have it available all the time (shock horror - a t8 game mode that is fun, doesnt see tier 10's all the time and doesnt require 2 spam - cant let that be available all the time, people might want to enjoy it and keep on playing the game.....)

To be exact, currently UK is on BST (UTC+1) while most of Europe is on CEST (UTC+2), and some countries (like Romania) are even on UTC+3.

You are of course correct that British Summer Time is now running (begins on the last Sunday of March, and will run until the last Sunday of October). This is due to the Summer Time Act 1916. As to how the continentals arrange their Summer Time I will leave that for them to comment on.

I utterly love how British you're being about all this.

 

On topic: I am never having children if that's what it does to your gaming time... but 10 pm until you're finally done with the everything sounds a bit excessive. My family and friends who bred their projectile vomiting artillery seem to be done at 21:00ish (yeah, let's be 'continental' about this :P.)

 

Granted though I don't see anything unreasonable about OP's request, give that man his hour!

I managed to get stuff done about 10 last night and got in an hour.    Arthur totally clarified what I meant.  Thank you for that.


 

I totally love the mode.
