Please, in the future, list the times of upcoming maintenances using a full color, detailed chart outlining all 24 time zones around the world and what the appropriate start time should be.
And it's so hard for BW to post times for all the servers? Why do American and European time zones get included, but not any APAC time zones? We're not saying all of them (I'm sure if they just included AEST we could work it out), but why are we the region that gets ignored}? We pay the same money as anyone else.

If it's so easy to work out, then no one will mind if they only post AEST times now, will they?

Love the sarcasm. Being from Massachusetts, I speak fluent sarcasm and truly appreciate a well crafted sarcastic reply.

It brings primarily Cartel Features, those really do not need testing on PTS. Internal testing by QA is sufficient for that.

Will the long hair I saw in the teaser video for the dye also be available with 2.1? Some of my friends have been itching or long hair for a long time.

Don't forget to use IP geolocation to put a giant "You are here" arrow on the globe, cause knowing these kinds of things are hard.

I remember the last time someone had a hissy over all time zones not being displayed, another poster went and posted start times for ALL the local time designations in the world.

It was a formidable wall of text.
Boo, this is boring. Tell them how boring this is....*squeak*

And they still will continue to whine about time zones even if every single zone was posted. It never ends

I don't know why they switched from CST (my zone) to PST, but seriously, it's not all that hard to remember that I'm 2 hours ahead of PST and 5 hours behind UTC. Just learn your offset and apply as needed.

Back on topic, I'm actually more interested in bugs fixes than in the customization stuff. Here's hoping there are a lot of them.

Oh, and +1 to Kubernetic for that great reply.
