I want to start a social clan for people who live in Europe, Africa, The Levant, Arabia, and Iran. The idea behind the clan is that people from the same timezone have roughly the same day and night cycles.

I need four members to start the clan. Please write a message in this thread if you live in Africa, in Arabia, in Europe, in Iran, or in The Levant and I will add you to the clan. Russia west of the Urals and Turkey are included in the area. I was originally thinking of the area corresponding to the timezones Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) -1, GMT, GMT +1, GMT +2, and GMT +3, and for geographical sense I have extended that to include Iran as well.

Welcome!

Naaah, I guess some people are shy to react?
(just to find a reason, right? :p)

Great!! We need at least two more to start the clan. If they don't want to post in the thread they can PM me.

i hope you accomplish your goal. Would be great to have another to battle.

So this didn't work out well apparently with not even enough members to start at all!

I can tell you why I came to think of this idea in the first place. It's because the limited time format - which of course is a necessity - puts me at a disadvantage because of my geographical position and working hours. Players in another part of the world from where most of the players are hailing always make moves right after I went to bed, making it difficult for me to make a move in time the next day. And since my working hours are irregular, I'm in an even worse position. My efforts to adjust to this problem have not had the desired result of my not missing any turns. On the contrary I really can't help missing turns almost every week because of this.

And since there aren't enough players from my time zone to amend it, I wonder if Major Command will ever consider opening a new time format of say 48 hours, something that would help greatly.

Please comment.

Start taking your turns when you go out of bed instead of before going to bed :D

I'd be against it tbh. Bigger games take a lot of time to finish as it is imo.
(Then again, having it as an option wouldn't hurt me, I guess I just wouldn't join those games.)

But if players from the New World make their moves right after you go to bed, those turns should be waiting for you the next day, before you go to bed. Right?

The majority of my playtime is during the day/early afternoon (EST....part of the new world)....so I happen to be on at the same time with the folks in Europe....I'm not as available in the evenings as much. So I think it just depends on everyone's schedule. Cheers! :)
