9S Guild Heroic Rancor Raid Start Times

this thread is in development, and will house the decided upon start times for the heroic rancor raid of the Ninesages SW:GOH guild. We're mainly considering rotating through 3 different start times since this guild is non-timezone specific. the start of the rancor raid will cycle through 3 different times of day upon each launch. this allows all timezones to have fair chance at attacking the rancor at least 2 out of 3 times at the end of the first 24 hours from raid launch. (remember the 0 damage to the rancor for the first 24 hours after raid launch rule)

please all officers and members provide feedback to this thread on your suggestion and timezone, so this can be decided quickly and we get to launching raids again.

for example

uselessinfoguru Eastern Time or -5 UTC i'd like to see raids start at 10am 6pm and 2am EST or 1500 2300 and 0700 UTC

I’m in Central European Time (CET) zone, which right now, due to DST, is at +2 UTC, although it’ll be only +1 UTC once we’re done with the DST nonsense.
And if we’re voting, I’d like raid start times to be 0100, 0900 and 1700 UTC, which I’m pretty sure will be terrible for anybody else living in CET, so let’s hope we hear from them soon.

yes, DEB, those times are indeed terrible :D
I'm voting for either:

UTC: 04:00 / 12:00 / 20:00

or

UTC: 03:00 / 11:00 / 19:00

I'm @ CEST, so UTC+2 right now (with DST), I think that is about the same timezone as DEB and mafew.
I agree most on mafew's proposal, that is UTC: 04:00 / 12:00 / 20:00
Guru's 1500 2300 and 0700 UTC isn't bad either, i would have to skip the 2300 raids, because i would be in bed, but i can manage the other two.
DEB's proposal for 0100, 0900 and 1700 UTC also has one I will miss, but the other two are doable.

So in descending order, for me:
Mafew
Guru
DEB

The difficulty is the huge spread of members worldwide so which time is good for some is bad for others

If I could make a suggestion of one of the possible launch times for the heroic rancor, it could be this: start at 11PM in Europe, given the 6-hour difference with East Coast USA, that should put the launch time at 5PM for our EST players, and then given the 3-hour difference from them to the West Coast, that should put the launch time at 2PM PST, while the other American time zones would fall somewhere in between those two. This, I think, is what would cover the biggest spread.
Now the question is, would our European players be willing to make the effort to stay up till 11PM around once every 10 to 12 days (we’d still have another 2 other launch times) to attack the rancor? Would 5PM (EST) to 2PM (PST) be acceptable for our North American players?
Keep in mind that we’d still need to find at least one launch time that would be better suited for people like nitz or khandog, who are in completely different parts of the world, and a launch time that would suit them will probably be bad for either Europeans or Americans (or maybe even both).

thx DEB for trying to make a suggestion of all of the current replies.
That would work for me.

HOWEVER:
If we could agree on a standard rhythm, it would be far easier to me to plan and stick with that scheme...
