So, while I understand the frustration that is caused by missing out on an event by doing whatever activity before the event starts, the one thing I had argued in the past was that PerBlue typically started every event at the same time - 10 am est.
Which meant, if you woke up at 8 am and were patient enough to wait just a couple of hours, you'd be fine!
All that goes out the window if GREE is not going to have consistent event times though. As an example, a double drop event just started at 3 pm est today. How is anyone supposed to plan for that?
1 of 2 things needs (well, should) to happen - either 1) they need to give advanced notice of events or 2) they need to be consistent with the timing of said events so people can plan around that.
