For those folks whose play schedules are adversely affected by this, and who are blaming realm coalescing, let me clarify. It was only a matter of time (get it? ... humph) before we moved to this reset system. The problem with the fishing tournaments and CRZ was just a more blunt reminder that having non-standardized reset times is confusing in a game where realm transfers and cross-realm features are a reality.
We've used a similar system for European realms for quite some time and it's cleaner.
The new system will be better for some people, and worse for others, in terms of life schedules. But people have always had different play schedules that we can't always account for, and there are unavoidable inconveniences in that regard. The new system will just take some adjustment.
I'm on a realm where my dailies have been resetting at 1 a.m. my local time, which I've used to my advantage to do back-to-back dailies many nights before bed. I won't be able to do that anymore. But I don't think that's somehow unfair to me. It's logical, to me, for an online, very "real-time" game on the scale of World of Warcraft to have standardized times for time-based content, similar to a basketball game being broadcast live from the west coast.
Time features aren't confusing.
The confusion comes from your bizarre stance on CRZ.
Players don't like CRZ, we've had 100's of threads with thousands of players who hate the way CRZ works. Who want it to be like MOP CRZ where it's invite only and non-intrusive.
If you would just listen to the player base, there would have been no abuse of the fishing tournament, there's be no skybox issues, there'd be no problems at all.
Instead you change the way daily resets work to FORCE your CRZ to work.
That is why this change is terrible. Instead of making the smart fix. you make the fix that effects the most amount of players in a negative way.
Simply put, This change is bizarre, the reasoning is flawed and the community is worse off because of it.
