    There sometimes is some confusion about the time. Often the questions are: "When does {random event} start for me?" or "At what time does Madness Friday start in {random country}".

    But, there is a solution for all your time-related problems, and it looks like this:

    A clock besides your main clock showing the Shotbow time


    How to get this fancy clock (on windows):
    1. In the bottom-right corner of your screen you should see the system time, right click the time and choose 'Adjust date/time'.

    2. This screen should pop up, go to the 'Additional clocks' tab and enable the checkbox, choose Central Time (this can be either UTC-5 or UTC-6, depending on whether DST is observed or not ), enter a suiting title and hit 'OK'.

    3. Click the clock in the bottom-right of your screen again, and... there it is, just like in the first picture :)



    You can also use this site to convert the 'Shotbow Time' (which is the same as the time in Dallas, Texas) to your local time.

    Haven't thought of that, indeed helpful, even though I know the timezone difference in my country. :stuck_out_tongue:

    I think you're confused on what shotbow time is. Shotbow time is when you say an update comes out in February and one doesn't come out until months later.

    Wait so... Just wondering, but if the server is based in Cali (LA I think) then why is the time Central?

    While the US server may be on the West Coast, HQ is still in Texas.

    Makes me wonder why the server's on the west coast in the first place... isn't it fairer ping-wise if it's central?
    Are servers just cheap in the silicon valley area?
    I guess I have the same problem with the London-based EU. Why not Amsterdam? Or Berlin, for that matter...
