At What Time Are Keys Doled Out?

I mean, what time of day? See, I live in the US Central Time Zone and I log in every day after 11PM my time because that's the following day in the east. But it seems that key giveaways happen somewhere around lunchtime? Tea time? Juicebox time? I have no idea. I logged in tonight and saw a TBS Battletech key giveaway! WOOHOO! I love me some TBS. SMAC, SMACX, even CIV VI. But when I clicked, imagine my surprise to discover that (like all three of last week's non-musical, non-wallpaper giveaways) THERE WERE NO KEYS. There are NEVER any keys.

So, what's the deal here? Am I doomed to never get keys? I thought the tippy-top levels (Formerly Masters) were supposed to have their own pool of keys?

Are the Master's Keys just more cake?

We've never had our pool of keys. Thats a big lie. I was Silver before and i kept missing giveaways because of the low or no level restriction, the bot swarm and of course the time zone.

It's the level 6 (whatever THAT is now) and up key pools that kill me. N00bs are pulling in hundreds of ARPs on Day One and then sucking up the keys. Meanwhile. . .

Well you guys have a better chance at special giveaways (like 11bit) and marketplace, which happens at 00:00 UTC±00:00, when we, Europoors, are sleeping.

Noob here. Never have gotten 100 ARP per day, nor have checking the give away page netted me anything other than "all out of keys" for game give aways. I sure would like to get 100 ARP per day, then maybe I could afford some clothes...

I have been lurking in the AWA On-Topic forum, reading and compiling everyone's ideas from the multitude of "I can't/didn't get a game key" threads, then dumping them in a thread in the Suggestions forum. Maybe someday the powers that be will implement one of our suggestions and life will get much better.

Don't be a ridiculous troll.  No N00B out there is pulling in 100s of ARP on a daily basis.

Noob here again. I only got 14 ARP today. The leaderboard shows people getting 150+ ARP today. Just how many multipliers can they stack? I must really be a slacker. I really got to figure out what they are doing...

2X ARP multiplier X 3 Steam Quests = 150 ARP.  Many members use the multipliers to straddle the end/beginning of the week so they can use it on last weeks and this weeks Steam Quests.
