Yes, I did change the time on the schedule from EST to EDT, because EST = Eastern Standard Time and EDT = Eastern Daylight Time.
I figured as I was doing that this morning that we would have people showing up for league an hour late because America changes time about a month earlier than most of the world. So when I was asked to grant a one hour delay, it seemed very reasonable and fair to give it. And as time went on, three other squads needed the same delay.
In the end, the other 5 squads did not suffer because rules are not written in stone and sometimes they need to bend a little when the situation calls for it. This was one of those situations.
I am sorry your team refused to play and you lost because of it but that was your decision, not mine.
Having talked to you about this in game and reading this completely unintelligible rambling response I realize just how poor your reasoning skills are and I apologize for treating you like an adult rather than a child.
We showed up at 1pm EST, we won that game.
We did not have players at 2pm EST, they all left/went afk/were about to leave due to other obligations after we won our match. Just because someone is sitting in spec doesn't mean they can play. I don't expect you to understand this seeing as how it is a very complicated concept to grasp for a woman of your age.
Clearly you made a decision that the team that can have players for 2pm EST (1 hour after the officially scheduled times) should win/have an advantage. You did this for no reason other than you wanted to favorite teams that are stupid enough to show up at an incorrect time.
Daylight savings time isn't a tsunami, it's not fucking 9/11. It is a predictable, known, and consistent phenomenon.
I don't mind losing but it seems your trying to ramble your way into convincing idiots that you did not try to favor players showing up at the wrong time and punish players showing up at the right time. Which is exactly what you did. At least own up to it.
Suddenly I'm starting to recall all the reasons why I stopped playing eg.
