    It continues to amaze me how many people can't tell time, and still after all these years, forget that everything happens on Pacific Time.


    Because the only time I honestly ever need to know time zones is during Blizzard launches...
    Still strange to me that we need to wait till 3 AM when D3 was activated based on timezone. It's not like there are server first achievements anymore.
    For NZ/Aus

    9PM NZDT
    7PM AEDT
    630PM ACDT
    6PM AEST
    4PM AWST
    now to save this thread url for everytime someone asks this question
    Oh, another post on this.
    I feel its necessary to mention that midnight (12:00am) is always the beginning of whatever day is mentioned. That confusion is why Blizzard usually schedules things for 11:59pm (23:59) or 12:01am (00:01) in the ingame calendar. 12:00am Thursday and 12:01am Thursday are one (1) minute apart.

    Really? Could you even imagine the outrage on the forums if East coasters got into the game 3 hours before the West coasters?

    No one waits for anything (not counting different regions). Warlords will be live at the same time for everyone within a region. Every single person in the US will start Warlords at the exact same moment.

    Would be nice if for a change it was Midnight no matter were you lived. I mean there is no race to be first this time. The achievement is gone. Let everyone start at the same time according to their time zone. Not like it is hard to do.
