    @DarkStarr will this be a show up and see what happens when X players are in the area controlled by dev request or will this be a full on luggage test (I.E. everyone cast a summon and then start spamming things like elysian illumination)?

    Reminder to start an hour or so early to allow time for patching. Better yet, start it as soon as you can and remember there may be another patch before this happens. It could be like patch day all over again if you haven't been keeping up with QA patches.

    Can someone please confirm the Timezone for Shroud events & Shroud Server?

    I "think" it is currently in the CDT Timezone?

    @DarkStarr Could you please help clear up any confusion for those of us from across the World (I am in Australia)

    Could you please include a Countdown Timer in Event Posts?
    OR
    Could you please add a "Local Server Time" Clock at the Top of the Forum Pages?


    I am sure I would not be the only player, who would be extremely grateful for this addition.

    I like your ideas. For now though what I did was did a Bing search of "3pm CDT". This should tell you your time in your timezone. For example - for me its 4pm.
    https://www.bing.com/search?q=3pm+c...8-7&sk=&cvid=DBAD6B8352674D41B5B5457A05EB0231

    P.S.: And for those that are like - "you use Bing? Why?" - because I get bonus points for searching in bing that I use to redeem for stuff - gift cards, Xbox live points, 1 year of Xbox live free.

    OR just advertise UTC / GMT. then anyone can apply their timezone to it easily. avoiding the silly questions
    regarding time zones almost entirely.

    Thank you to St Drahcir & Lained for the speedy reply.

    It helps that the timezone is confirmed :)

    Ok @DarkStarr I am here and seeing you have the same issues I have had for years :mad:- you can not place the tiles to line up normally, nor your Darkstarr banner stays on your side but changes back to Lord British.:eek:

    These are two very old, and heavily reported issues.:confused:

    Need to really work on the overlapping, "snap" alignment of walls and tiles;)

    The Battle banners was fixed or we where told they would be fixed ages ago so when you choose a side it would stay.:(

    Sorry but small things like this should actually take precedenceo_O over new animal rugs and stuff.:rolleyes:
