What times are you talking about, i already said the times, can't you read?
13.30(GMT-8 ) -> 14.30(GMT-7) -> 15.30(GMT-6) -> 16.30(GMT-5)
21.30(GMT+0 ) -> 22.30(GMT+1) -> 23.30(GMT+2) -> 00.30(GMT+3)
Is that hard? I never talked about 12.00 or 09.00
I miss spoke, but that's irrelevant, I was using it as a guide, 16:30 is 4:30 P.M for us here, which still doesn't work.
More than half the U.S population is still at work/in school at that time.
9 to 5 jobs. So, we get off work/school at 17:00(GMT-5), then we all drive home, get settled in, such and such.
So it ends up being 18:00(GMT -5)before the majority of the east coast is ready to play, and
Aeria takes this into account I assume.
They probably also consider major religious group meeting times.
And I forget to mention, that I'm not arguing for, or against the times. No matter what they are, I will be there. I'm just trying to help you understand why they may be what they are.
