I played on Sea years ago when it first started but found the servers a little on the empty side. So I started a new account on the NA servers but the same thing these days. The only free time I get is late Australian evening time and there's usually only 2500-3000 on NA which means some games take ages to start. 

 

 How's the SEA population in the later evening times?

Lowest around 1,500.

Highest around 5,000.

 

The more late you play, the more lower the population is.

Timezones:

0000 - 0600 / 12:00 MN - 6:00 AM (UTC + 8 / AWST)
0130 - 0730 / 1:30 AM - 7:30 AM (UTC + 9.5 / ACST)
0230 - 0830 / 2:30 AM - 8:30 AM (UTC +  10.5 / ACDT)
0200 - 0800 / 2:00 AM - 8:00 AM (UTC + 10 / AEST)
0300 - 0900 / 3:00 AM - 9:00 AM (UTC + 11 / AEDT)

 

If you are in the east and start around 12 MN, then there is a good chance that there will be around 6,000 - 8,000 players.

I think that also depends on what tier you play. I mean there are not many who play on lower tiers in particular.

Late Australian evening should be around the peak hours on most of Asia though.

Japan (GMT+) should be the same nominal time as Australia. I don't pay too much attention to populations but MM is very quick from early evening until midnight. After that it drops off a lot, with notably lower CV population and generally weaker quality of play. Things seem to peak around 10-11 pm.

@Coopz To give you an idea of the spread of times.    The majority of the server is based around the eastern regions so any ANZ player would be playing later in the night/early morning to make the most of peak times.
