NSL5 Reminder - Daylight Saving Time is Now Active
A reminder to all NSL5 participants and clans, as of today, March 31st 2013
, Daylight Saving Time
is active for Europe, and knowing a good majority of Savage players hail from this particular part of the world, please be aware that time in Europe has been moved forward by one hour. All players and clans should keep this in mind for the Week 8 NSL5 Matches, because it could lead to confusion, forfeits, or scheduling problems if folks don't understand or remember this time change for Europe.
Clan leaders and clan members are advised to remind your fellow clan-mates and players about this time change so that they can double-check their schedules for school, work, family, and etc when planning to play for the Week 8 NSL5 Matches.

March 31, 2013: Europe Starts Daylight Saving Timehttp://www.timeanddate.com/news/time/europe-starts-dst-2013.htmlAlso, for scheduling matches, please keep in mind that GMT is a universal timezone that is easy to use because it never changes. Other terms like BST, CEST, Summer Time, UK Time, CET are more likely to cause scheduling confusion or problems because those are relative to the folks who live in those timezones, but everyone else in different parts of the world don't necessarily know what those are nor understand them. GMT is more reliable and common to use.
