    Help this mathmatically challenged Alaskan...

    What times/dates will CoC be for the US? I can figure out timezones from Eastern (US) to Alaskan... but after that it makes my head hurt.

    the easiest way for me is to google Beijing current time and see the time difference.

    Beijing is 12 hours ahead of Eastern time right now, but when the US goes off Daylight Savings this weekend, it will be 13 hours ahead. (China does not observe any time shifts).

    That applies only to the EST, North America have different time zones for different area.

    Oh, rats! That's right--Standard Time begins this Sunday. Thanks for the reminder.

    And everyone, please remember that the NBC telecast is in the early afternoon, something like 1:30 to 3:30 P.M. Eastern time. So if broadcast TV is all you can get, make sure you're parked in front of the TV early this Sunday.

    No kidding. Thanks for trying to be helpful, but I'm well aware of that, being from North America. I don't think people on the forum are stupid and need me to spoon feed them. Those not living in the Eastern Time Zone can do their own math to figure out their own timing.

    What harm is done if someone wants to go the extra mile and help beyond the basics, even if it constitutes spoon feeding. If you are personally aware of something, fine; but don't begrudge someone offering information that might be helpful to others.
