it varies per person depending on their time zone when it begins

 

in my case for the US server

 

I can't open the box of "X day" until 11 AM ( and I am pacific time, same as server ) and seems that for my case it closes at midnight as I missed the 5th box as I forgot and was not able to get it at 12:05 AM of the 6th of December and I opened the 6th at 11:57 PM ( same time as the US server ), so essentially I have only a 13 hours window

 

it seems from what people say that Easter time zone are able to open the box at "their 11 AM"  ( or 8 AM of server time ) 3 hours ahead of me

 

do they have also 13 hours window? ( can't open box after their midnight? or 9 PM server time )

 

or they have till 12 PM server time ( their 3 AM )?  meaning they have a 16 hours window to claim the prize?

 

and why is not the advent calendar going according to the server time of their own forum? ( US forum going same as US server, UK forum same as 2 UK servers, German forum by their bunch of German servers, etc ) in the exact same way as the herocon, league and daily and weekly refresh.

looks like I was wrong?  and is also 9 AM my time ( 2 hours after Faith ) when I was able to open today's box but it still stands, I have 15 hours till US server's midnight or 15 hrs to open the box, while Faith has 17 hours, and I guess someone from the UK who plays in US server would have 23 hours ( their 9 AM is my 1 AM )

I have asked several people at what time they can access:

 

Seems that on the US side of things, we can open at 9AM our local time.

I know this to be a fact in EST, CST and PST. I would assume that is universal on US side but I know no one in MST.

 

Since this is supposed to be available at midnight, seems we only get 15 hours of accept it time.

Faith ( Central ) said she can cash in at her 2 AM ( midnight pacific ) giving her 17 hours

 

if it was "their midnight"  than someone on London would have to cash it in before 4 PM pacific

no answer from HZ? 

 

is it everyone a 15 hours window?  or ones in pacific time zone have a disadvantage with east coast and Europe?

I have a member on my team that is PST and another EST. I am CST.

 

They can only open the box at 9 am THEIR local time. So, basically we all have 15 hours.

 

I can only speak for the USA side of things. And fortunately I have a wide spread group. Some of the oversea people in my group have said they can get it, but nobody has noted the times.

I play from Europe and I can get it right at server reset but I didn't test the last hour I can get it. All I can say last year I forget few of them to redeem in first hours and I tried with about 2h before server reset but can't get it anymore. Was a message that inform me is too late.

thanks Lacatus

 

I am guessing??????????????  you are +1 from London time? because from what I calculated, someone in London will be able to open at their 9 AM ( 1 AM Pacific Time or PT ) and last time they can claim it would be just before  their midnight? ( 4 PM PT )

 

 

how are the hours they can claim for someone in Australia?  because if we go with this pattern

 

 

for today's box ( the 9th )  they were able to open at their 9 AM  ( FRIDAY's 2PM PT? ) and last time they can open it is just before their midnight  ( 5 AM PT of Saturday )
