Daylight Saving Changes

All players should note that daylight saving changes will affect both round 1 and round 2. Firstly, many parts of the world, including Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Mexico will see their clocks moved  forward this week. However, US time (and most importantly, server time) will not change until next week.

Specifically, the server time will move backward one hour on Sunday, November 5th at 02:00 (which means that 02:00 EDT will become 01:00 EST).

For round 1, players should take these changes into account if they are in any of the regions where times are changing, or if they schedule their game during the extension period, after Sunday November 5th.

For round 2, all players must be conscious of the change in server time. Another reminder will be issued at the start of the next round, to make sure that everyone is aware of the situation.
