Mk, this is probably a very easily answered question but seeing as I imagine a number of people aren't going to be sure about this, I figured I'd post to ask instead.

From today until March 29th the US and European time differences will be different to usual due to silly DST. Seeing as SQT vs RQT is currently scheduled for March 21 in the middle of this period, I wanted to confirm whether HOL time moves with Europe or with the US?

Seeing as for most of the year HOL time = UK time and UK time hasn't changed, it would seem sensible to assume that HOL time will switch with the European countries. However, as this affects the hour of the game and possibly whether certain people can/can't make it etc, I figured it'd be best to clear it up well in advance for the sake of QB, the refs and both teams!

Doesn't really bother me what the answer is, or if the answer's right really, as long as I know what time the game will be XD

HOL time = UK time.

Right now the HOL clock in the main page is wrong as HOL is hosted in a canadian eh server and so it is an hour ahead.

So this means that for next game the 21st os March, the game will be held an hour "late" for Canada and USA.

Other countries may change in different dates. Mexico will do on April 5th, for example.

For everyone's general edification, I've found the Fixed Time World Clock (just Google it) to be particularly helpful in situations like this. You select a month, day, year, time, and time zone, and it provides of huge list of, like, a frajillion cities and their local times. That list can be sorted by city name, country, or time zone, to help you find your time.

I usually go with UK - London time, as I like to have it pinpointed to a place. It makes these international HOL meetings much easier to figure out.


PS: Actually, Ulol, this time around, the game will be an hour later for the folks in the US and Canada. We've sprung forward an hour, taking away one of those hours of difference between us and London. Pesky time math.

*BUMP*

Every year around this time of year, someone will wonder when the game happens so we're bumping this topic!

Everyone please reference the edited BLOG POST at the Entrance Hall.

There you will find a nifty chart to tell you when the game on March 15th takes place!
