Am I wrong or PST/GMT times are now PDT/BST times and are 1 hour shifted (besides the 8 hour difference between PDT / BST)?

Anyway thats why I suggested using UTC as one of the times, bcs that time never change..

Are you absolutely sure you didnt mess up your numbers again? I would love to start playing at 12.00 GMT, but usually its tiime for the begining of Maintenance, not the end of it.

Don't give them funny ideas again. GMT doesn't change for daylight saving time. Some of the countries that use GMT switch to another timezone. Others like Iceland and much of western Africa never switch and are on GMT all year.

Using BST (or IST or WEST) would just cause more confusion. (or actually did so last year) daylight saving doesn't start everywhere at the same time and not every country does it. It's much easier for everyone (including Eric) to use a standard time they just have to translate to their own timezone.

In the end GMT works fine as a synonym for UTC, it never changes for daylight saving, has no offset to UTC and actually used to be the time standard before UTC. The main difference is that UTC doesn't imply that London is the center of the world.

But yes, there is a mistake: pacific time has shifted to PDT.
1:00AM - 5:00AM PDT = 8:00 - 12:00 GMT

Actually Austin is on CST/CDT (UTC -6/-5), right?
Maybe there would be less mistakes if BW just used their own timezone (and GMT/UTC)

I think they just want to assure, that they don't affect the US-Prime-Time, when they have to extend the maintenance due to technical issues. Hopefully, european customers are able, to access the game before it's midnight.

And therefore UTC would be nice
