The game time is the same as in Ghana, Africa.

Time zones are named after cities. Eg: the Netherlands time zone is called Amsterdam, yours is called Rome, England's is called London... You get it ;)

Ghana's time zone is called after the city "Accra". If you take all the time zones in the world, and put them in alphabetical order, Accra is number 1.

I'm not sure why they went with this, but that's it..

Because that's not the goal of the game time.
It was made so you can communicate easier with other players, and make arrangements.

For instance: "let's meet tomorrow at 14:00 game time"

That's easier than: "let's meet tomorrow at 14:00". Since you don't know where the other players lives and therefore can't be sure if you will both be online at the agreed time.

Hope that makes sense ;)

The game uses GMT, which is British winter time. So during summer, it will be 1 hour behind British Summer Time (BST).
