What is your suggestion?: i suggest instead of always doing events (bonus tob drop rate etc) at the same time of day, spread it out so that people from other timezones, such as us aussies get to make use of it also. 

 

Is this in OSRS?: no

 

Has this suggestion been accepted already?: no

 

How would this benefit Alora?: it would mean that everyone gets a fair go of it and also increase the amount of people pvming in offpeak times, very had to find a nex/tob team in peak aus time because everyone's sleeping, but if this is added ive no doubt those that miss the usual events would want to make the most of it.

I'm often unable to catch events except for Sunday because of work. Would be nice to have varying event times

This is particularly present for us Oceanic (Aussie here) players.
Most of the bonus events are either early morning or late night for us.
Tournaments and boss masses etc - they’re all usually done middle of the night or very early morning for us.

Would be nice if occasionally they were conducted at different times.

It would be great to get the Aussies involved with events, but the big issue is that all of us admins are from EU. Can't really force an admin to host events at like 2am or later. Perhaps we could turn on some boosts at night, what do you guys think about that? If so, what is an ideal server time for that?

100% support this. ive yet to be able to participate in ANYTHING since ive been back on this server the past 5 weeks or so now without having to stay up or wake up super early

for OCE (atleast for myself in sydney) the servers real quiet around 5pm-11pm aest  give or take 2hrs for those in nz or asia

even applying boosts, there isnt really many active players around on that timezone that itll make a difference for. its hard to form consistent teams that dont leave after 1hr.

As someone with experience with actually hosting late night events. I truthfully do believe this is something the server needs. 

When I did host them, they were always active and the community was always appreciative of the events. I had plenty of people telling me thank you since they were in a separate time zone, had work, family time or whatever reason it was-- they missed out on the day time events. There's still life and reason to support the community at night. It's very much active and full of life AND gamers who want to have fun and earn rewards!

SUPPORT! SUPPORT! SUPPORT!
