    Will match times get better

    Almost all of my matches have been at stupid times. Anything before midnight and after 8am is fine. But between midnight and 8am it is not possible to play. Here is a list of my league times followed by my cup times (I joined after being knocked out of the cup and as I'm new and therefore on level 1 there's no UCL)

    Please note, any times in red with !!!!!!!! after means that the match was played at night and within 8 hours of another night match (making it impossible to sleep and play both). I've also put "away" to show the matches that were un-changeable). Finally anything in green is at a time when I'm not asleep (however you will notice all of these green daytime matches are after 9pm, so not exactly social times).

    League

    6am (Away)
    5am
    9pm (Away)
    4am!!!!!!!!
    midnight (Away)
    midnight
    8am!!!!!!!! (Away)
    11pm
    4am!!!!!!!! (Away)
    midnight
    4am!!!!!!!!
    4am (Away)
    1am
    1am
    10pm (Away)
    6am!!!!!!!!
    6am (Away)
    4am
    midnight (Away)
    11pm
    6am!!!!!!!! (Away)
    midnight
    7am!!!!!!!! (Away)
    11pm (Away)
    4am!!!!!!!!
    3am (Away)


    Cup

    7am
    7am (Away)

    Do the times get easier? I know I'll have cup and UCL next season, but will I ever get matches at reasonable times? I'm told I can pay 2 tokens to change each home match but that would waste lots of tokens and that only fixes the away problem.

    Total matches: 28
    Night matches (between midnight and 8am): 23
    Percentage of matches at night: 82%
    Tokens to reschedule night matches: 24
    Night matches that can't be changed: 11
    Night matches played within 8 hours: 8
    Night matches played within 8 hours that can't be changed: 4

    So to summarise. Of the 28 matches played 23 of them would have meant changing my sleeping pattern to accomodate the game. Of those 23 matches 12 could have been rescheduled costing me 24 tokens, which would have meant 11 of my 28 matches would have affected my sleeping pattern. Of the 23 night matches 8 of them would have not only meant changing sleeping patterns but actually waking up in the middle of a sleep to play and then go back to sleep (some matches were within 4 hours of one another and both in the middle of the night). Going to bed late after playing a match at midnight, maybe falling asleep before 1am but setting an alarm for 4am to play for a few mins then go back to sleep for the rest of the night sounds crazy. How can they think setting 82% of my matches in the middle of the night is fair

    Is every season like this? Does it get worse?

    I have never seen as poor a shedule as yours.

    Normal is a few 'night' matches, but this is absurd. Hope this is your only time.

    I'm sure what country you choose within the game effects what time matches can start, could possibly be the cause.

    It has become ridiculous since the 2015 app update. My nine year old niece became a level one manager here in England and her home games are all around midnight and her away games are mostly 4am or when shes at school ,so she can never actively play, but hey this is Nordeus, what did i expect lol

    My team (level 15 from Australia) today have their biggest match in history tonight - a Cup Final and it's at 1:11am my local time - but my opponents are from the Netherlands and my team is down as the away team so I guess that's to be expected.

    Usually this is because late starters get the schedule for the 'timezone' of the team when it was created, this changes the following season when times are regulated to your time zone. . Starting before or after league draw has the biggest impact imo.

    The other factor is the more East or West other teams are from you the more times will be spread.

    PS. I did a take-over couple of seasons ago on a South Korean team and got late/early fixtures.
