what is the Best time to raid?

Postby Lax » Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:31 pm

I am trying to math out when the best time to conduct a Raid would be. We would want to Include as many from our sim, as well as from the sim we wish to raid. I know the easiest way is to just IM, but I am wondering if we can factor in some average times for the happiest times for a Raid, for people who are either European, North American, or Asian Pacific.

i like 1 pm sl time on the weekends that is the best time to get a great cross section of euro and american warriors all on at the same time. Yes i know it is 10 pm euro time, but earlier than that the americans on the weekend will not be up and ready to dedicate time to sl or busy getting their rocks off with their slaves.

Considering the leght of a raid yes, I think it's a pretty good time zone.

Depends who you want to be there. But if you want Euro players to take part, then around 1 pm is a pretty good time for a raid.

Most take place a lot later, and this is why raids for me are rare to the point of being almost non-existent. And why there are never wars in Gor. Gor is a pacifist's dream, in fact; I know several guys who have even given up carrying weapons.

Check this page. It's the Gorean Meter stats page. It has a graph showing number of binds, captures, and kills that should be useful for your purposes:

http://gm.mivabe.nl/regions/stat.php

Obviously this is generalized. If it's a euro sim you're wondering about the time is going to be generally speaking shifted five to eight hours ahead of a US sim, and so forth.

Looks like the general high points are 11am-2pm (the euro crowd, I presume). and 6-7pm (the US crowd).

Mostly, from what I've noticed these past few months, activities happen earlier (compared to my time zone) to allow more Euro players to be involved. Around 2PM to PM SLT.

The stats on the GM Site, reflects mostly of GE activity, since they are those that conducts raids and rescues often. To get a better idea at any given time you would like to raid, you may refer to the list of active sims (Top 33) and map / scout and see if their numbers matches yours. Some of those on the Top 10 are active around Euro Times. The rest varies as they have players from all parts of the globe.

My RL tends to keep me out of the raiding fun during the week since I not getting home until 7pm SLT. That leaves very little time for a raid and for any after RP would be rushed and brief. Not exactly fair for me to get a captive, RP for 30 minutes then have to go to bed and leaving said captive stuck in limbo for 20hours.
During the weekends, anytime is good for me to be or conduct a raid. For me it is part of Gor to be interrupted from my usual routine by random acts of violence, it is part of the experience that makes it exciting. I enjoy my bit of combat, even if my PC tends to do me disservice with its high ping and low fps.

miss the option never
there's those thinking more or less less is more
but if less is more how you're keeping score?
Means for every point you make
your level drops
kinda like its starting from the top
you can't do that...

The best time to raid is when you are sure you can win, especially if you have a few in your group that tend to get snippy when capped.
