I mean no offense with what I’m about to say and knowing perfectly that the majority of you aren’t yet in high school, but I’d just like to point out that there could be no confusion with time zones and they are not just serving the convenience of Americans (or US citizens if you will).
This is just because the dev team of (not only) Blizzard (but most game companies) are mostly located in the US. Yes some companies (those that target audiences with lower IQ) provide release date and time in CET, but that mostly happens for actual game releases and not patches.
Another reason for this might simply be, because developers probably already have their hands full fixing stuff that gamers report and are actual bugs to sit around and re-calculate the release time in your time zone so that you would not need to think (or use Google).
Time zones are actually used world wide and they are explained in a school subject by the name of Geography (I dunno if you heard of that) and if you’d payed attention while your Geo teacher was blabering some stuff on that quite big subject that you probably have at least 2-3 classes per week you might actually understand how to calculate those time zone differences, but assuming you were too busy at the time I will give you a cheat code for that IRL thing which I found with a simple Google search with the short query “pst to cet”.

PS: Not to mention that Windows 10 actually provides the option to add multiple clocks in diffrent time zones for people from that fresh modern generation.
As a plus all smartphones have that ability too…
Honestly if you people are complaining that the time is stated with a time zone that you don’t know… Wow… what happens when you encounter a bug in game … I’m just glad that I do not know and am blessed to be blissful about the reports you guys submit!

Please take no offense in this post instead just pay attention in high school or dig around the options of your most used devices. Both would benefit you way more than just playing offended!
At the end I’d like to thank OP for that notification and say that if they have the time they could start posting such notes just like the maintenance schedule - that would be the only more convenient way to get that information, but all the same thanks very much!
