Clan battle times SUCK

OK, so this is something I've got to get off my chest.

I'm in New Zealand, & ever since clan battles have started, they're ALWAYS 00:00-03:00.

So those of use here have to stay up to some god-awful time in order to get goodies from the clan battles (it's Iron, right?)

Wondering if WG is ever going to look at rotating the start times by 6 hours per season, sure, others might miss out, but hey, you've had a damn good run.

I think they're great!

Less traffic on the net to affect ping; the kids are asleep so i can swear; and my phone never rings.

A couple of times I've fallen asleep at the controls of the high-speed train I drive, but the conductor thumping on the door usually wakes me.

Not to mention the queue times for important things like the loo and the fridge/coffee pot are considerably smaller during those hours. Win win situation in my book :Smile_trollface:

Is he thumping on the door with his fists to wake you, or is the conductor thumping against the door from the sudden stop your train just experienced?

No, the sudden stops usually result in him being ejected from the carriage, via the front window.

It's not true.:cap_wander:

I used a comedic situation to show how ridiculous clan battle times are.

IRL I am a brain surgeon.  When I nod off over the operating table, the nurse merely kicks my shin. :cap_hmm:

Ah grandad.

You reminded me of him just now.

He died in his sleep, so peaceful.

His passengers died screaming in terror though.

You all can have convenient Clan Battles times when and only when you beat Emus in a war.

You, sir, are mad.

Crikey, I mean, strewth, look at this fella.

Fight him?

You mean become his food.

You know how everything in Australia wants to kill you?

Emus direct their efforts.

Great organisers, emus.

On LAND maybe.

My dad was involved in some exchange service on US warships back in the day.

When the Aussie sailors went on board the American ship moored just off Jervis Bay, the Aussies looked over the side of the hull and asked the Yanks where their wombat nets were.

The Americans were confused.

The Australians explained that wombats are very territorial but have terrible eyesight. When a ship stops offshore, the massive bulk of the ship just looks like a huge competitor to the wombat who will swim out and chew through ships hulls in anger and defence of their territory.

The yanks couldn't believe the wombats could do that until the Aussies went on to explain that wombats dig their own burrows with their teeth - in solid stone.

I served with a guy who claims he sold Kangaroo feathers to some US Sailors. I thought that was hard to believe until I met the Chief Petty Officer on the USS Independence that had the sole responsibility of maintaining the ship's coffee perculators. They are a weird mob.

"Specialists"

Well I guess he could go straight from serving to serving at Starbucks...?

Can confirm, Kangaroo feathers were still being sold to yanks as recently as 2008/9
