    Main plotline: jaina doesn't want to get visibly older.
    Also, horde fights for the AM/PM notation, while alliance fights for the 24h notation.

    it is easy to translate "am" to "at morning". Means, 11:59 pm is midnight, going to morning to noon, 11:59am.

    and just translate "pm" to "post meal", where you could associate lunch with.

    We ca read analog watches, yes.. But.

    1: It's not taught in any school
    2: It switch between AM and PM in unlogical way (12PM comes after 11AM and 12AM comes aster 11PM). That's the major confusion (12AM should be with 1AM-11AM and 12PM should be with 1PM to 11PM).

    Why is it so hard to use 24h time and server time. Who the fuck outside of Murrica and britbong-land use AM/PM?

    So EU is 23:59 on Monday

    Why are you guys getting butthurt over the way we tell time? Damn...not like it affects you in any way. We get it at 3pm Monday...that's in the afternoon for those of you who don't understand. Is it because we don't have to stay up till all hours of the night waiting? Is that really the problem here?

    Huh ? You never heard anybody saying "2hours minus 10" when its 13h50, in two years in France ? This is used so much I'm surprised when someone use the 24h format in the afternoon.... dont know where you lived in France lol

    AM and PM are actually latin abreviations. Are you really to lazy to look up that BfA will get a universal release in all regions and then when you get the answer even cannot be arsed to check what AM means? It would loiterally be faster than making this topic and post your edgy reply....edgy and also..hm.uncalled for? How would the guy who answers know you are not American?

    Why is it so hard to not be condescending and flame people for the way they do things in their country. Especially when you are on an american forum and your own profile info does not tell us where you live and that you cannot be arsed to learn anything outside your comfort zone.

    ...I am not even american, nor specially fond of and you people still piss me off
