    The english version operates during north american hours, like you said the war hours are friendly and specific for north americans. The hours fit perfectly into a normal schedule for north americans, therefore it is logic to assume it english version isn't for another time-zone. You cannot download the HK version in Europe, I had a hard time finding HK version until I changed my living location on itunes, then I was able to dl the HK version in order to check out new items/pets.

    Look at the time of the events, look at the times of war, look at the time of updates. The game reset is at 3am Eastern, which is midnight pacific time, which exactly when the day changes to the next.

    Maybe lakoo has planned eo in more languages, which would be available to more regions. English isn't the more popular language in the world, I believe that is mandorin. Where do most english speakin society operate out of? Well society is pretty much based on New York City, so that's north america, so north american friendly times.

    Okay, there are two version of this game currently. The english version, which operates in north american hours and the HK version which operates during asian-friendly (I guess you would say Euro-Asian). Its not a matter of Lakoo having to fix the english version war times to better suit Euro-Asian players, rather its the game which you choose to play. If you want to play the enligsh game, which is set to north american friendly hours, there are certain downside. One, the time that wars occur and two, the fact we are 8 months behind HK. If you want to play the Hk version, their war times would be friendly towards the hours in which you aren't sleeping or getting ready for work/bed.

    You can't complain when you live in one region and play a game which is catering to another geographic region. If you are Euro-asian and want to play the 'north american' version of EO, there are certain things you cant really complain about, one is when lakoo makes decisions that are time-zone specific. There are many players who live in asia and europe (maybe africa) that are at a disadvantage because of the region specific time-zones aspect to the game, but that's how lakoo desgined the game... one north american EO, and one HK EO.

    The best case is try to war at times that best suit your empire's region, and try to avoid being war'd at times that do not work well for your empire. Its a tough break, but its something that makes 100% sense. A north american friendly app should be based on north american time-zones and not necessarily where the game is made. If you want to play the HK version and the time of wars were north american friendly, then you have an issue.

    It is a good point ChiTieu.  However, it is a problem other players face in the HG version of the game.  Short of allowing real war 24/7 some players are always going to miss out.  The current system allows for war when many of the game's intended market is awake.  I certainly would not want my empire to be warred by yours when I am asleep so I understand your frustration.  Perhaps Lakoo can develop a Mock War feature in a future update where empires can declare war in the currently "off-limits" war times?  These wars would not count toward wins/losses, and would not cost the losing side a fee or buildings.  This may be a good way for players in different time zones to experience wars for gem farming and pvp with people in the same timezone.

    @lee: Who said the english version is made only for north american friendly hours dude?

    Since the HK sever was only available for small group of people who speak chinese, Lakoo want this game to be popular to the world so they had made the English ver ( while most people know how to speak english). So it mean that this game is made for Asian, africa, Euro adn american, in general this is some kind of worldwide game. So why only american can enjoy the war time? is that unfair while people from all over the world are playing this?
