Why is the ingame clock now displayed in UTC?

    They need to add a function that allows you to switch times, its very inconvenient. Sometimes i look at the corner to see the time and i see its 4am and im wondering why am i still up only to find out its 12am.

    For the time being, you can turn off the in-game clock. Shame it is only in UTC.

    I'd like my local time back, thanks. When I came back to the game I thought this was a bug due to the region merge, but no, I found out it was an intentional change, which just boggles my mind.

    As someone in NA, the ingame clock is now entirely pointless other than to let me know when trans is going to reset.

    I have to tab out and look at my system clock to know when anything's going to happen now. And now with DST and Nexon seemingly not bothering to use it anymore, I don't even know WHEN things are happening. Is daily reset at 12? 1? Is VVIP reset 7? 8? Why is it even different in the first place? How about the midnight resets? How about the 24 hour clock usage on items with expiration dates?

    I can't remember anything at this point. It's all gotten so convoluted and confusing. How are Nexon so blind to this?

    UTC is only really useful for those living in the UK/Ireland and Portugal, the rest of Europe has UTC +1, so the merge with EU can't really be the reason they set it to UTC. Only a small part of the playerbase can actually use the clock now, might aswell take it out completely. I hope they do something about this.

    I don't like the UTC time for Three reasons.

    1. I lose Track of time cus in game clock not in local time.
    2. When setting up run with other people in the server need to alt tab or look at your phone to check the local time.
    3. They don't even use UTC in their info pages.

    So calling someone out for ruining the group of 7 other people is against the rules, meanwhile they can post meme pictures, derailing a thread.

    Seems legit.

    edit: irony that I just got the "called them out" forum badge for this comment.

    You should not be calling anyone out, especially in an unrelated thread.

    The meme seems to be the players take on this thread so it is fine.
