However, for those of you who want some more definitive data as far as when you are most likely to find a match, I did include an optional question in the Match Reporting Form to gather this data. Here's what I've found by sorting the data from the past two weeks:
- Our player base is pretty diverse as far as preferred playing times, with responses ranging pretty much across the entirety of a 24 hour range.
- Based on the original time zone indicated, our players are fairly well split between North America and Europe, with only a few players in other parts of the world. This tracks well with who has participated in MPDC in the past.
- The best time to find other players online seems to be in the 5-9pm GMT range. This makes sense, as it starts early afternoon for most of the United States but includes evenings and late night in Europe.
