Countdown off by an hour

Post by BigBlueDart » November 11th, 2016, 7:12 am

Being in a different time zone I sometimes get confused about what time a game is. I've usually relied on the countdown to clear it up, but after looking several times I've concluded that it is an hour off and would have people expecting to see a game an hour early. I'm guessing this happened when we went off of DST?

Hey Provo, it seems like the countdown timer for the games is still off, at least for me. I'm in the central time zone, but I thought that shouldn't matter because the time should come from the server. It's not pulling it off each system, is it? The game tonight starts at 8 my time, 7 mountain but it says "It's happening now! Come to chat!" I'll upload a picture so you can see. The time in the picture is 7:20 central.

It appears correct to me. Is the timezone on your computer correct? It uses data from the server and your computer.

Yep, windows 10 set to Central Time under Date & Time. I checked my timezone settings in the forum options but it was actually set to eastern time. I set it to central and nothing changed.

Tried that, also tried another computer, tried IE, Edge, Firefox, and Chrome, and tried all of those in incognito mode on Windows 10 and Firefox on Ubuntu. They all still have the same countdown time. The only thing that fixed it is if I change my system time to Mountain. If I can't get it to work that is alright, I'm wondering if there was something in the new update that might have changed it? But, then again, if Quack is in Jamaica, and others are all over the place, and their countdown timers are working, I'm not sure why mine isn't. Thanks for looking into this.

I just made another change. See if it's working for you now.

If I'm doing my calculations correctly that fixed it! Thanks for your help!
