Storm Timing

    Been requested before - but thought I'd mention it again. Can the timing for the storms rotate a bit please? The same 4 hour slots each day favour certain parts of the world if you are on the right time zones. If it was changed from 4 hour to 3 hour intervals the storms would arrive at slightly different times each day.

    I much prefer the storms to normal raiding. Having them randomly appear a few times a week outside of the event would give a change up to the same old rinse and repeat attacks too.

    It would be nice, if the storm comes every 3 hours. Personally i don't like to fight during the storm. My pirates are still not strong enough, the canons and mortars are very bad for them. I live in Finland and i have during the daytime only 2 x 4 hours of sunny weather, from 11 am to 3 pm(most people are working) and from 7 pm to 11 pm(i should sleep already :confused:). I try to use the sunny weather as much as possible(and use gems to speed up my troops) to get the ppts for my guild. 4 hours for one session is a little bit to long.
    Could you please think about it and maybe changes this some day?

    @Lynsey [Midoki] still no change to the same 4 hour timings every day. Is this something that can be tweaked as I can't imagine just changing the timings to rotate timezones would be too difficult as it's just moving what's already setup? Would be massively appreciated if you could look at this please.

    I can take a look into this, but we'd also have to consider any potential negative impacts, and any additional costs/time issues (for example, we'd have to change the FAQ, which would require localisation and a new client version, there may be additional code tweaks required, etc). Sadly things are very rarely as simple as just tweaking a number. ;)

    Thanks for the reply @Lynsey [Midoki] - the current timing just seems the times of day are similar each day and much more non-storm than Storm timing. As I love the storms (wish you'd give us them randomly between events to mix up the gameplay) it's a little annoying. Maybe an option would be alternate from one storm event to the next and swap the storm times? The FAQ wouldn't need to change as still 4 hour periods.
