In week two of the Cursed Isles:
The particularly observant pirate will note: Rare have not rotated the regions through the in-game dates, to accommodate players with limited play-time, in different parts of the world. Rather, what the sneaky buggers have done, is subtract an 8-hour offset from UTC time, before calculating in-game date and time, or (more likely) added 10 days to the in-game date, afterwards.
The effect for players around the world, trying to complete Cursed Isles commendations, is the same; but for third party time keepers - such as I have on my own web site - we now have to adjust to "SOT CI2" Time, i.e. "Sea of Thieves, Cursed Isles Week 2 Time".
