I have a suggestion to propose:
We all know the time in our countries, therefore the presence of the time on the screen is somewhat redundant. But, sometimes it is necessary to make some kind of coordination between players of differents countries, for which it would be optimal some sort of WG Universal Time, which would be the same for all and therefore useful.
What we say to death?

we could use GMT


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

it's kinda western-civilization-centric, but GMT works for me...

I don't have anyproblem with WHICH ONE, if you like you could choose Washington time, what I mean (and seem I didn 't exlain well)  is that time (common/the same one) in our screens got to be the same in ALL screens to let us coordinate better and easier.

I don't know you but I got friends in US, South Africa, Netherland, Asia and South America and ALL have different hours, so in that way when you say to any other to meet at a certain hour  will be more simple and anyone hasn't got to add or subtract hours.

i fly daily with my friend SpiritFoxMY in Malaysia, and i'm on EST... 

 

with the US swapping out an hour twice a year and that ridiculous practice doesn't happen in Malaysia, it's difficult to coordinate 

 

WG, please add a GMT clock on the Game Center and in the hangar...  i'll pay for the coding myself

We need more opinions to get some attention on this.

Agreed. The server downtime being 1600 here in summer and 1700 in winter is just bloody inconvenient.

Please use a time zone that can be easily converted, without changing it due to DST.

I typed a whole response and then realized how boneheaded it was.  

 

I think the baseline GMT time is the best route to take.  It's the universal standard and is easy to adjust to your local time.

Tell your contacts, may be if we add more people we reach a certain ammount of pressure and they code that for us.

Zulu time is best.  The entire world clock is + or - from GMT, so...
