Anarchy Online turns 8!

On June 27th 2001 at 12:30 GMT the Anarchy Online Servers were officially turned on. It has been eight fantastic years since then, in a futuristic and advanced world - no matter where you go!

The all-weekend party has finished, we'd like to thank everyone who came and made this party an amazing event!

The dance floor was packed!

Funcom and The Advisors of Rubi-Ka, in conjunction with Gridstream Productions and Radio SDF invited players to party, celebrating eight years of Anarchy Online! Fun, Prizes, Music and more.

The party was in Reets Reetreat on Atlantean (RK1), Friday, June 26, 2009 12:00 PM GMT and ran for 10 hours. On June 27th, 2009 from 12:00 GMT to 22:00 GMT we were on DNW (RK3). Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 3:00 PM GMT, we were on Rimor (RK2) for 10 more hours of partying!

I will try to be there. If only I can figure out when exactly it starts....

How about using just 1 standard for telling time?

You're 80?

RK3 could be a small party. More of a dinner party?

12:00pm is noon. GMT stays the same all year round. NYC (where I live) is on Eastern Daylight Savings Time or -4 hours GMT. So according to this

The party on RK1 will be from 8:00am EDST to 6:00pm EDST. Is that correct?

EST (New York time) is MINUS 4 hours from GMT this time of year.

So 12:00 GMT actually equals 08:00 Est .. or actually EDT.. currently

Easiest way to compair.. simply type /played on your toon on the system.

You will get the your local time (what ever your computer is set to).. GMT time.. and the "game time" what ever that is.
