For the past week, I get stuck in queue then when am in its night time for what feels like forever.

Simple poll to see how the rest of the community feel about this

As far as I know, night time is 1 hour long, daytime is 3 hours. You have some consecutive unlucky timing when joining the server. In my opinion its ok like this, cause I really missed night time and the eeriness of night (especially in the woods) back when server only had day time.

The cycle @TheSilent12 stated is correct.

I believe it should stay the way it is. One hour is not long, and it allows you to utilize flashlights, NVGs, fireplaces etc.

When it's night time, some people go afk or stop travelling, staying in the same spot for the night. It's also hard to see people in the distance unless they're broadcasting their location with a ball of light. This makes finding RP at night infinitely harder. I think night time needs to be reduced by at least half.

Wouldn't hurt my immersion if they'd reduce it by 15 to 20 mins. Most of the people stay in houses or in their base anyway at nighttime. Night is the most un-eventful period on the server.

I agree that we should have night be like 15 mins shorter, not fully removed because then nvgs are useless AND night can be interesting scenery especially during hostilities. But definitely shorter because most of the time night means everyone stays in whatever town/house theyre in for the next hour.

Night time is fine the way it is.

Actually, some of my fondest moments come from night-time shenanigans.

I've stumbled upon several players who camp down for the night, lighting up a fire in a house, cooking some meat or simply resting.

 

One hour of night time with three hours of daytime is perfectly fine, and with plenty of chemlights, flashlights and other tools to see at night you shouldn't have issues moving.

How about no. It’s a survival game. Night time is suppose to give people some time to RP the more survival things that aren’t screaming and shooting. Learn to not just initiate or firefight for one hour or so and have some relaxation around a fire  I find combining both play styles is the most fun tbh. Just get a flashlight or night vision if you feel like you have to travel at night. I get that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but as a community we should try to have a little bit of everything for everyone. Not just having a majority of one thing. Diversify.

No. Just no. It's a survival game for a reason. Roleplay as you would if you were an individual in an post-apocalyptic scenario at night. You'd hunker down in a secure location with reliable people, or you'd have the appropriate gear and willing to take the risk to travel around. 

Frankly, I find it immersion breaking when I see players running around at night without a lightsource (or NVGs). I almost wish the night-cycle were longer.

damn dude calm down 

I only wanted to see if the community felt the same way i did, I just feel like the fact that Dayz's night is so dark its so difficult to see mans had to squint to see.

1/3 is night, reducing it by 15 to 20 Mins really doesn't hurt the survival aspect. You won't see many people actually roaming, most of them stay resting somewhere. That's a lot time you spend sitting somewhere waiting for the sun to rise. By reducing the time you can still have a use for nvgs, lights and rest near a fire (or smth like that). You even have enough time to ambush or rob people in the protection of the dark while the majority can at least save themselves valuable minutes of not sitting in front of a fire, doing nothing.

Just log off if you got a problem with night time. It's great and not many servers has it. Modded ones that is.
