cause they finish their work fridays at 4 pm and wanna play after d3 too
To those wondering why it starts late in the day it's imo it's to accommodate the West cost since Blizz headquarters is there. For them it starts at 5pm just about when everyone is off work/school...also they don't want to start it too late their time in case of bugs/glitches server problems so there are people there to "fix" problems at launch of new seasons
Blizzard as always sucking NA's Cåck

Going back in time considering its PDT now. You could say that it actually wouldn't start till 6pm PDT since 5pm PST = 6pm PDT. But 5 is the normal time and pretty sure the PST is just a typo.
I thought they'd start at the same time in all servers. That's wierd.
It just never stops does it, same old questions every season. When does it start, when does it end . . . . . .
It'd be great if they got a bit more specific or technical. I'm an American living and working in Saudi Arabia, which is part of Asia, but that's not when my season starts.
