~ Time zones in the game, general information ~
If you don't have the same activity/titanite counters in your daily tasks and on the guild screen and/or you have upgraded the Glyph, but don't see 700 points in one of your counters, do not panic.
Everything is explained by the fact that our game has two time zones.
The first one is the Guild time zone, and all the Guild activities are reset by it: Glyph upgrade, titan's tournament, and guild wars. Guild activity and titanite's counters are also reset by it:
Guild Time Zone is GMT+0 on Facebook and GMT+3 in the web and mobile versions of the game, i.e. Guild Day is updated at 5:00 GMT+0/GMT+3 for all players at once. All Guild counters and the opportunity to receive 700 points for Glyph upgrade are updated at this time.
The Guild day timer can always be found in the Guild rewards window:
The second time zone in the game is personal. Usually, it is the same as the time zone on your PC, you can see it in the player's profile:
All daily tasks and counters are updated by it at 5:00 (GMT-6):
~ Example of mismatching counters ~
Let's consider a situation when a player on Facebook has a GMT-6 time zone, i.e. his day starts at 5:00 GMT-6, and he has mismatching counters.
The player started collecting activity and titanite from 5:00 by Guild Time Zone (GMT+0). By his time zone (GMT-6) it was from 23:00 of the previous day. In 6 hours his personal day was reset and all personal counters along with it.
So, all points collected from 23:00 to 5:00 GMT-6 remained in the previous personal day.
But it was the same guild day, because 5:00 GMT-6 = 11:00 GMT+0, so nothing changed in the guild counters.
From 11:00 to 5:00 by guild time zone (GMT+0), the player collected some more titanite and activity, and it was from 5:00 to 23:00 by the personal day (GMT-6), so everything was counted in both days.
That is why the situation with mismatching numbers happened:
780 activity points and 30 titanite were collected in the green zone (the whole guild day), 17 titanite and 700 points of which were collected in the red zone (before the reset of the personal day), and only 80 activity points and 13 titanite were collected in the yellow zone (after the reset of the personal day).
~How to avoid this situation~
It's quite simple, you need to collect all the activity/titanite and upgrade the glyph so that there aren't any resets of the day (neither guild nor personal) during the collection period.
Let's take the previous example when the player's personal time zone is GMT-6. In this situation, it is necessary to collect all points either in the period from 23:00 to 5:00 GMT-6 (5:00 - 11:00 GMT +0), or, on the contrary, from 5:00 to 23:00. As a result, there won't be any counters updates.
To calculate the right time for your time zone you can use a special service.
- Add your time zone and the Guild one (GMT+0/GMT+3):
- You will see two timelines:
- You need to choose between 5:00 guild day and 5:00 of your time zone:
- These will be the borders that you must not cross while collecting activity/titanite
