Server Time Zones: Do They Matter?


While I haven't logged on to all of the new servers, I've heard they're all in the EST time zone - to much bitter complaining.  But does the time zone the server runs on really matter that much?  A number of players say it matters because guild raids are scheduled based on server time, but I've always wondered why players on a server time zone that doesn't fit their schedule can't band together and create their own guild and schedule.  (Though I suppose this is more work than just joining a guild.)  Of course, it seems like Blizzard could solve many of these complaints by adding a simple time zone tag to the realm selection screen.  What do you think, dear readers?  Does time zone really matter when choosing a realm?
