    Event times are now too late for east coast players. This game is now populated mostly by people who are past college age. Events that are either too early or too late just won't work. That goes for both people on east and west coast. Almost all major content starting at 10:30pm EDT is just way too late. Abyssal Attack lasts a minimum of 2 hours unless channeled very early, which is unlikely to happen for most servers. Kraken, leviathan, charybdis, etc last a minimum of 2 hours as well. That means content is going on until well past midnight for east coast players. This is much too late for most players now days.

    It seems like XL/Gamigo want to follow a schedule that has multiple bosses/types of content spawning at the same time. So I won't change the structure of the schedule but rather just change the times to something I consider more appropriate for both EDT and PDT.

    Times listed in PDT
    Charybdis: Friday and Monday at 5:30pm PDT
    Kraken: Friday and Sunday at 5:30pm PDT
    Leviathan: Friday and Monday at 5:30pm PDT
    Black Dragon: Friday and Sunday at 5:30pm PDT
    Why Friday and Sunday/Monday? Because while it's cool to split focus between multiple bosses, content is way too concentrated on Thursdays and Thursdays currently with abyssal on top of bosses. Mondays and Fridays are basically boring days with nothing going on. Make Fridays and Mondays have something going for them too.
    Delphinad Ghost Ships: 5:45pm-6:45pm PDT
    Abyssal Attack: Tuesdays/Thursdays/Saturdays 5:29pm-7:30pm PDT (this event actually lasts two hours)
    ^^^^^^^ The timing if these bosses and abyssal are the most important timers to remember. All other content should be timed around these bosses/abyssal. Having multiple bosses (and abyssal) spawn together each day to split focus is good. Having people choose between pve content to better their gear and pvp content where they actually use their gear is not good. People shouldn't have to decide "well I need to do kadum, but kraken is up." for example.
    Golden Plains Battle: (Leave these open in 1 hour intervals at least please. the primetime slot should go back to 1.5 hours) 11:00am-12:00pm PDT, 7:30pm-9:00pm PDT, 6:00am-7:00am PDT (There are a surprising amount of early morning players. Don't forget them too)
    Fall of Hiram: (These times are fine for the most part, prior to time change) 10:00pm-11:30pm PDT, 7:00am-9:00am PDT, 3:00pm-8:00pm PDT
    Red Dragon’s Keep: (at least 1 hour intervals on these too. The longest interval should be the primetime one.) Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT, 9:00pm-10:30pm PDT, 7:00am-8:00am PDT
    Kadum: (at least 1 hour intervals on these too. The longest interval should be the primetime one.) Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT, 9:00pm-10:30pm PDT, 7:00am-8:00am PDT
    Lusca Awakening: 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

    Please change the timers back to what they were. As an east coast player content is way too late for me because I work. My guild leader can't even come to content any more and has had to quit the game because of it. Anyone who didn't like the previous times would have quit the game ages ago. The people who are still left playing liked the times the way they were. Changing it now only makes you lose players, not gain them.

    Old timers weren't perfect but it was a slight inconvenience to most people, they are quite accessible for most with a little adjustment to their real life schedule. New timers are good for half the population but the other half are totally locked out of it, they cannot attend the events at all except on their off days. No access to these content, peeps wont get progression and will likely quit, this is a gear centric PvP game afterall.

    Then theres the event duration, specifically for intances like Golden Plains battle. Most people are able to attend only 1 session. 30min to 45min ain't enough to squeeze in 3 halcy. Revert back to usually 1hr- 1.5hr window please.

    Maybe re-introduce old timers in addition to new timers, but 1-2 hrs earlier. Pretty sure theres enough population to cater to all 5 timings(for halcy as an example)

    Pls revert to old timers. Imo, it was the middle ground accessible to majority of the players. New timings made things worse, good for half the playerbase while the other half are left in dirt unable to attend most or any at all. 1/3 of my guild are contemplating on quiting due to the new timers, they cant get any progression done without these events.

    Great comment here and seconded, "the other half are totally locked out of it, they cannot attend the events at all except on their off days" cannot be emphasized enough.

    Kraken: Sunday 6:00 PM EASTERN
    Leviathan: Tuesday and Sunday 6:00 PM EASTERN
    Black Dragon: Friday and Sunday at 6:30 PM EASTERN
    Golden Plains Battle: 2:00 pm -3:00pm EASTERN , 8:30 PM - 9:30pm EASTERN, 1:00 AM to 2:00 AM EASTERN
    Fall of Hiram: No comment
    Red Dragon’s Keep: No comment
    Kadum: No comment

    Abyssal Attack: Tuesdays/Thursdays/Saturdays 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm EST

    Or simply revert back to prepatch old timers.

    All events would work better for me an hour earlier or at original time (with the ladder being better but I find the former acceptable).
