So I finally got the strength to pull myself outta bed before 11:00AM Pacific time for the jackpot battle. Having 2 family members with serious illnesses and no money to pay the med bills really gives some motivation.
I had signed up officially with the Jackpot battle 3 days before (on Friday) hoping this would be my family's big break, winning JPB. Even if I didn't actually win it, I could know that I at least tried to contribute.
Back to my issue... I logged in at 10:50 AM Pacific Standard time (the time zone with exactly 3 hours difference [3 hours back] from Eastern Standard Time). I had expected to move into the gate at 11AM my time and waited until 11:15AM (as it said players would be moved in within this timeframe). At the point the clock hit 11:18, I finally found something wrong.
According to the JPB popup given on the backpage, all users were set to enter the battle map by 2PM Eastern Time (which, since I was 3 hours difference would be 11:00AM). So I have reached this time... why haven't I entered the battle map?!
Both me and my family need this. Please, all mods, if you can try to read this, at least make sure it doesn't happen to me AGAIN next month so I can make my attempt at winning this competition.
Adding specifics here:
This was on my east 3 server ship, so it was an east coast server.
