I would bet my money on nordwars or Ivaan.
But nordwars already has an excuse why he is no there.

-> Ivaan is my favourite for the grand melee. I hope he can participate.

Thanks Ragor!  :)

Unfortunately, I won't be available on the weekend probably...  :(

There is still a small chance that I can participate. We will see.


Anyway, good luck and good hunting to all mechwarriors in this tournament!

So, the units that do not already have a spot on the invitational, will you people be sending representatives to the grand melee?

Ivaan, i hope you can make it :)

I contacted those units i remembered, pointing them to this thread in case they hadn't seen it. Would also love to see more unaffiliated players in, i know that there are some very good players out there that could have a good chance on winning this.

Do we have a time for the start of the Grand Melee? Because I'm more than happy to join in!

See the OP. It even kindly converts the time to your own timezone's time for your convenience.

Is the conversion working properly?

19:00 GMT
Arizona = -7 GMT
this should equal 12:00 noon local time but the post  says "9:00pm your time."

9:00pm Arizona time should = 4am GMT of the next day.

correct?

I could be wrong, but I believe Arizona is -7 GMT in Standard Time, and we are now in Daylight Savings Time, so Arizona would be -6 GMT.

I know for my time zone (EST), we are usually -5 GMT.  Right now however, we are -4 GMT and the original post has the correct times for me, which is 15:00pm EST (3pm).

Edit: Also, make sure your time zone settings are correct on the forum, otherwise I don't think the OP will give you the correct time.  It's one of these two things I think. =D

Arizona doesn't observe Daylight savings.  We stay the same all year. I'm pretty sure we stay -7 GMT all year.  This doesn't change the fac that
the post is telling me that 19:00 GMT = 9:00pm my time which is just wrong.

That's it Deity.  The forum on this PC is set to 4:34pm which explains everything.  I incorrectly assumed it was off of PC time.

Deity got it - the time conversion feature converts automatically to the time zone you have set for this forum. If that is set correctly it should work fine :)

Ah - that is a good caveat, I bet a large percentage of people have not bothered to set their forum timezone correctly, so what I thought was a final solution may not be :( I guess will just have to mention this pointwhenever using the function.

And some people will be too scared to change their profile, lest they lose their precious avatars.
