The first time that this happened I thought it was a fluke, but here we are. So last week I log in on Monday, all set to get the little daily log-in mission and get a shot at that crate at the end of the week, only for my game to claim that it was Tuesday. Now that threw my whole day off, because I'm on night shift any way and I have to explain to people CONSTANTLY that our business day doesn't end until 4am, so "today" is technically still "tomorrow" for four more hours, but whatever. Random glitch, it happens right?

 

Well tonight it happened again! I log some time before 8pm eastern time on Tuesday December 3rd, only for the game client to insist that it was Wednesday and lock me out of a mission. What the heck is going on here?

I believe the daily mission reset for that weekly crate happens around 7 pm CST, not at the server reset which is at 3 am. That could be the reason.

That makes absolutely no sense. If the reset happens at 7pm CST then I should have had at least a few minutes left, I definitely was on before that time I'm just not certain by how much. Also that's a really dumb time to do the reset if that is the case. That's only 5pm Pacific time, there's still seven hours of day left! The only way it makes sense is if the NA server runs on GMT, but why would it? It makes no sense for a server running primarily for the US, Canada, Central, and South America to be set to BRITISH time of all things.

The reset didn't change with daylight savings time.  It was at 8PM Eastern Daylight Time when US was on daylight savings time.  Now it is at 7PM Eastern Standard Time.

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.

WG is from Minsk, Belorussia. They dont have Daylight Savings anymore. So that reset could be wired to global WG. And the NA server reset complies with daylight savings and is state based. 

Strange to have it different though, very strange.

Daily Rewards does not take into account Daylight Savings as they are tied to UTC, which never changes :) The developers are aware of the inconvenient time of Daily Rewards reset for the NA region, unfortunately, it is not an issue that can easily be fixed. The only way to avoid it to get used to the resetting time. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Ok...I get the time to reset is a little confusing... (Add a count down timer set to UTC time 1:38 hours until reset).  This count down would be the same for everyone because it would be in Days: Hours: Minutes.

 

Also, my bigger issue with the daily rewards is that I can use tokens for my missed days (Monday, Tuesday, etc.)

But if I will not be on the computer on Sunday, I CAN NOT use tokens to pay for Sunday.

I have lost out on many weeks crates because I only logged in on Sunday after the reset.

 

Add a function where you can pick days to pay tokens (both past & future)....and if someone wants to pay 14 tokens, they get the weeks crate.

Thank you for the clarification.

 

It would be GREAT if the clock in the Hangar showed us UTC time and date, so that when we logged in, we would know the SERVER time and date, and thus know where we're at as far as day/date goes.  Hard to miss it when, in the top left corner, the Hangar says "2345HRS, Saturday, December 7" this coming Saturday at 3:45PM Pacific time.  That way, before 4PM, we play on Saturday.  After, we play on Sunday.

I vaguely remember there being a setting somewhere to display a particular time zone in-game.  Or was that just in 1.x?

I have to agree, this is the biggest flaw in the system.  You could play the same time every day, but if you just miss that one day, you get nothing.  Even if you spent tokens every day because you were busy or whatnot, that little time window at the end is pretty unfair. Should be a way to pay for that prior week that you missed. 

 

Really works like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday... Sunday [edited]you too..

 

Reminds me of this:

I've found it helps out to try LOOKING AT A CLOCK. If I can do it, ANYONE can do it.   :sceptic:
