I found a problem, and did my best to fix it: Alliance members need to coordinate attacks during war, and we’re often in different parts of the world and different timezones. Here’s my answer, a war phase timer and planning tool. Somewhere along the line I decided to add a titan clock too so I could figure out when I needed to be back after roaming on a pass titan.
A few months ago, I joined an alliance where war was scheduled, and more serious than I was used to … and and I was left feeling like a bear of very small brain and confused by things happening 10 hours after war started, or was that 5pm Eastern time, and what time is that in Central time. To make things worse, I then promised to be online at the start of war, before I figured out that it was 5am local time, and that’s NOT a good or natural time for Barry to be awake … but it was a new alliance and I didn’t want to look like a flake in my first war by backing out, so I gritted my teeth and set my alarm. (And didn’t volunteer for that part next time 'round!)
Being the spreadsheet geek I am, I made this, in self defense, and discovered that many other alliance members appreciated it as well. It has kinda grown a bit since then.
I hope some of you can use it as well.
