For all Europeans: the exact reset time!

Howdy all :cool:

One of the most asked questions on Europe realm these days is when exactly the ladder is gonna be reset. The reset takes place at 9 AM PDT time, but for us Europeans that is kinda chinese.

I did some research, and found out that the Pacific Daylight Time is GMT -7. GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) is the time in the UK. To see what Greenwich zone you're in, simply click this link.

Me being in Belgium, being at GMT +1 means that I am 9 hours ahead of the PDT time.

Explanation:
1) PDT time = GMT -7
2) I am at GMT +1, so time difference = 8 hours
3) Add 1 hour due to summer time (!!)
4) Makes it a +9 hours difference for me.

This site may prove helpful if you still have doubts: link. It shows that it is 2:06AM in PDT now, and it's 11:06AM for me now, proving the 9 hour difference.

Conclusion: The time of the reset is 14:00h GMT time. If you're GMT +1 like me this becomes 15:00h.

This also means that for all Europeans the servers will be open again at 20:00 GMT, proving that Blizzard keeps its schedule.

I hope this makes it clear for everyone. If you still doubt about the exact reset time, ask away :thumbup:

3) Add 1 hour due to summer time (!!)
You have to do that for both timezones, so it evens out and the difference will be 8 hours. However, the correct English term is "daylight saving time", so the word "daylight time" mean that it has already been done for PST (and it's 9 hours then, as you said).

Everybody confused now ? Fine, I'll leave then :D

Only if it's taken into regard for the PST offset as well, else it evens out.
Well thing is, if you calculate it without the summertime difference (so GMT -7 and me GMT +1) it is 8 hours difference, while at this very moment it's 2:41 PDT and at my place (and yours, living in Germany) 11:41AM, being 9 hours difference.

So you have to calculate in 1 hour extra due to summertime. Btw, if you go watch on the official GMT website, it states that the UK is at GMT +1 atm, and us at GMT +2, due to that same summertime.

I'm in norway (+1) so this means that the ladder reset starts 15:00 and ends after 6 hours?

We in Norway are also at GMT+1. The same applies for us as for Furyan. So, yes. 15:00.

@ Scumi: You're welcome :thumbup:

And yes indeed. For everyone in GMT +1 the ladder resets at 15:00h and starts again at 21:00.

Yes. And GMT itself (UK and Iceland iirc) starts at 14:00h.

Summary:

If you live in GMT, the ladder resets at 14:00h.
If you live in GMT +1, the ladder resets at 15:00h.
If you live in GMT +2, the ladder resets at 16:00h.


To see what GMT zone you're in, use the link in my first post.

Only Iceland and Russia don't use summertime IIRC

Yeah, that's possible indeed, gotta check that. But I still have to meet my first player from either Russia or Iceland :whistling:

Re: For all Europeans: the exact reset time!

I'm not sure your maths is quite right on this one...

PDT is -7 hrs compared to GMT, so 0900 (9am) PDT is 1600 (4 pm) GMT not 1400. Reset time in UK is definitely 1700 hrs i.e 5 pm, which means a 2300 restart if all goes as planned.

Re: For all Europeans: the exact reset time!

Lol, for some reason I calculated it with 6 hours, not with 9. You're correct.

Update:
GMT resets at 17:00h
GMT+1 resets at 18:00h
GMT+2 resets at 19:00h

Omfg, I wonder how the hell I miscalculated that... I did follow math-sciences at school, but I can't even read a clock properly. I wonder how the hell I passed my years in high school... This is by far my most epic phail ever :doh:

My apologies to everyone for the confusion :crazyeyes:
