@Moe: Am I not allowed to give my opinion? I was just hopefully giving some constructive criticism for the admins of the game to help improve the format. "Too late" shouldn't have to be a reason why some people couldn't be more competitive for this format. This coliseum took place 1AM-7AM PST in the US. Impossible to many.
@the Admins, I have read several posts/comments on every previous coliseum message board, and it seems the concensus opinion (not solely mine) is that the coliseum time period should be lengthened. I can understand the need to keep them relatively short as I can imagine the influx of players for one tournament would be a nightmare to the upkeep. But consider just adding even 4-6 hours to the total time of the coliseum. The fight limit is already in place, there shouldn't have to be a time limit to further make it difficult for most who have the coliseum hours take place over night
It's still an improvement that it's not at the same time as all others have been. The fact that US was in the dark zone was hopefully just bad luck and the next one is held at 2AM to 8 AM CET if they stick to the 6 hour brawls for the time being. You can't expect that something that's openly in beta would be perfect the first time.
The different times this time around obviously didn't suit the US, but it certainly favored South East Asia and Oceania. Rather than being 2-8am, it ended up being something like 8pm-2am (or something along those lines) so I actually got to play this time.
I strongly agree that the time period should be extended so that there are at least 3 hours or so of non 'dark zone' time (as a minimum) for anywhere in the world. Optimally, 24 hours would be the most equal and inclusive worldwide.
