Title: Emps-World Clock
Post by: Ranger 0wns on January 11, 2015, 11:41:11 pm
I have a small suggestion that I think would be nice to have in the game.   My suggestion is that because we have events in which start at certain times, and the fact that there are people who live halfway across the globe with a different time setting, it would be nice to know the official Emp's time when you login. 

I think that we need a clock or time of Emps-World added into our tools options.  Also, maybe even two clocks.  Have one be the official Emp's time and one you can change, or set to the location of your IP address or a time setting of your own selection. 

So what do you guys think?  Pretty neat idea huh? :P

As for me I'm fine with looking at forums' time (emps' one) and my PC cloak.

As for people who don't login in forums that could be helpful but the problem is why would they need a cloak if they don't know that there is an event at X time? ;)

True, but maybe a friend or someone told them in game.  Also there are many clans in the game and they create events through the clan chat.

Yeah something like that.  I mean it would probably be best if it was Estonia timezone because that's the timezone for the majority of the players in the game.

If they create an event through the clan chat then that event must be running at that moment, I haven't seen in a clan chat an announcement of an event at X time later, pls correct me if I'm mistaking, because it just doesn't make sense to announce an event to the people who are online at that time, what about the offline ones? :)

Overall, I didn't disagree with the suggestion as it doesn't affect the gameplay itself, so I don't care about it being released or not :P

No offense to ur opinion :D

I usually see someone say, "Want to do this again tomorrow?" and they'll say something like, "Sure what time?" after they finished for the day and want to do it again the next day. 

That's okay, It's just a suggestion I thought some would like.  Also if it doesn't affect the game play, than why not have it for people who could or might need it?

Thanks for your opinions!

If this were to be implemented, which I doubt unfortunately, it would only represent the Forum Time-Zone, which is GMT +1.

I do like this idea but I just don't see it coming in the near future; sorry.

I see, but why don't you think it will come anytime soon, or at all?

There are more important things to do rather than add a clock in-game. If people wish to know the times of events and other things, this is what the forum is for.

I'd rather promote the forum in-game more than add a clock which would only revert non-existing forum users from using the forum.

I see your point, thanks.

EDIT:  I've been thinking about this and I've come up with some arguments.  What if you're someone who uses the webclient and you don't want to log out and go to the forums webpage just to find out the time.  Also, I don't think it would degrade the forums at all if this was added.  There are plenty of other ways to promote the forums.

I agree, like honestly when someone tells me "we're having an event at eg. 4pm ust time" or whatever. You think I know what that means lol. It would make life much easier if there was just one Emps clock and people made events based on the Emps time from which then I can just work it out for myself.

I support this suggestion, it'd be really nice for clan events

I support this although it's not that important because we have the official emps clock on forums. However, not too many players check forums therefore it would be nice to have a clock ingame, perhapd wipe out the sounds taband add it there or quest tab?

yeah I don't think it's really that necessary seeing how your emps-client isn't going to be over your computer clock, I do understand the positives of adding it
but its just not probably going to come if it cuts into other coding time since its not that beneficial to a players game play experience.

True, but I can't imagine this being too hard to code, but don't get me wrong because I really know nothing about coding. :P
