8pm PDT only makes sense if you live on the West coast. I live on the East coast, so my games are going beyond 1am. We forfeited both of our last matches (after winning the first two both days) because it was too late for everyone and it was 1am on a Monday.
For the next clash, could we have it at a more reasonable time for East coasters? Opening up the lock-in window for all tiers would mean MANY more people could play them out or play them in general. Especially if on the weekend, it can definitely be earlier (or even have earlier lock in times for everyone).
