    Brasse mentioned in Discord that "ArcheAge has the most EU players, followed by RIFT."
    Nothing about more EU than NA.

    Brasse wrote "In our game portfolio, ArcheAge has the most EU players, followed by RIFT." But no screen shot atm, so I guess not official. ^^

    And 10:30? No, 10:30 wouldn't be a problem, but for me it was after midnight. =/

    Edit: see above. Maybe I understood wrong.

    In Germany, the Rift livestream started at 0.30 local time. While I could usually - okay, sometimes - watch the beginning, I quite often fell asleep in front of the PC because it really is too late for me. Yes, I'm working a lot, I'm not young anymore and I need my sleep.

    So I appreciate the stream being earlier, at least for a little while. Doesn't mean it has to stay like that forever, right?

    AA having more EU people than Rift makes much more sense:)

    My point was that while for some EU folks it was about staying up later than they usually would, for NA folks it's about not even having a choice (unless your job allows you to just watch random twitch streams whenever you like). Doesn't really seem fair to me in comparison.

    P.S. for my timezone it was 1:30, not *late* late for a Friday night, pretty manageable if I really want to catch the livestream live (which I do when I can). For the actual Europe, it's even earlier than that. And, again, it's followed by a Saturday not Monday morning, not like you absolutely have to get up early or anything. Just sayin'

    Being EU citizen...

    15:30 PST or PDT... not sure those are the same... as original time did seem odd to me...

    Office hours don't always stop at 14:30 on friday, but perhaps NA has some different standards on that. But being home within an hour after work... Can't remember when I last managed that..

    So it seemed to me, there were always people shut out of the live stream... NA for the stream being too early, EU for stream being too late and Oceanic.. early morning ^^

    The new time will make it more difficult for me to watch... 20:30 local time... diner, friends, social life... And I can imagine some more people will be excluded because of time settings too early.

    I'm happy for those who now have a better window of opportunity to watch live stream.

    But basically, there is no specific time that suits all, since I assume we have to consider Trion working hours too as time frame in which streams can be broadcasted live.

    Hi there!

    Here is the info on Karma Coin. You can now also use Razer ZGold and Twitch Game Details to purchase Rift/Rift products. Check all details before doing so and good luck!

    Hey folks....

    Yes, I meant that in terms of EU population for our games, ArcheAge is the highest, followed by RIFT. In both cases we have more players in North America.

    We are going to try this time slot for a month and see how it goes. In looking at our overall numbers it seems like a better time, but if it is NOT, we can change back.

    As with ANY event, there is no perfect time that works for all, so again, I am glad that we have video replays.

    Today also marks the first time that all official Trion streams are being simulcast on Twitch, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook - bear with us in case of technical bumps!
    ;-)#

    There may be truth to the rumor that some Dwarf also prefers to attend Happy Hour at Trion with all her colleagues and is glad it's not during the livestream any more... but it's just a rumor!
