Here is the comparison of the schedule...
The "stated" original schedules (in PDT)...
Thurs 5/5/11 - @10:00pm - 1:00am
Friday 5/6/11 - @3:00am-6:00am, 8:00am-11:00am, 1:00pm-3:00pm, 5:00pm -8:00pm, 10:00pm -1:00am
Saturday 5/7/11 - @3:00am-6:00am, 8:00am-11:00am, 1:00pm-3:00pm, 5:00pm -8:00pm, 10:00pm -1:00am
Sunday 5/8/11 - @3:00am-6:00am, 8:00am-11:00am, 1:00pm-3:00pm, 5:00pm -8:00pm, 10:00pm -1:00am
This is how the schedule is suppose to be like... in the listing...
There suppose to be a total of 180 Showdowns across 4 days based on this schedule...
However, this is THE WAY HOW LISTING IS ACTUALLY HAPPENED! (Yes, I stayed up whole FRI, SAT, SUN all day/night long with sleep every breaks, eat every 3~5 breaks, and took bath in the break period of 20:00 ~ 21:00 to recorded all listings from 3 forces)
You can see that we got only MAXIMUM of 122 Showdowns* and with irrational pattern of schedule (as you can see some yellow-tone highlighted on table, which highlighted the times on the listing that is NOT part of the "original schedule"). Couple these with odd listing like "ONLY 1 Showdown's room for the PERIOD! (I called "Exclusive Showdowns")"... Something like this!
All of the "1~2 SHOWDOWN ROOMS OF THE PERIOD" I had record such those in [N#] notes.
I do think that maybe this event possibly had been "overloaded" the Showdown's Scheduler functions and may cause such irrational listings.
But anyways, what done is done. At least, players should be happy about this MASSIVE AMOUNT OF SHOWDOWNS EVENT that GM set-up for.
*Note: 122 MAXIMUM of Showdowns were ONLY applied for players in Sun Jian's force and Cao Cao's force. Other forces got less amount of "Exclusive Showdowns" and therefore the MAXIMUM of Showdowns will be less compare to Sun Jian's and Cao Cao's.
