    Apologies ClawmyName if BSM is different from BST....but if they are the same then 12pmEST is equivalent to 5pm BST.
    Hope that helps!

    I'd like to add that I'm very happy to see console players not being excluded from the crate drops and the exclusive pet being offered during this event with the PC/Mac Twitch Rewards. Not a perfect system yet as many console players will be at work during this time(PC/Mac can watch this stream wherever they are and obtain the rewards)....but certainly a step in the right direction!

    Hidden by darkness, a shadow in the night,
    A sped arrow dissecting the gloom,
    Finding it's target, such delight.

    If it's so easy to get these rewards by logging in, then make PC/Mac players do that as well, together with console players. Lets see how many of them will get it in this case.

    Nice to see console players get a chance this time around even though it’s a short window.

    I only wish they’d taken into account different time zones. This is going to be 1.30am for me on Sat. I’d like to get the freebies, but I guess we’ll see how tired I am.

    I think you have to add an hour, the article states:
    If you are on console, don’t worry, you can acquire the pet AND Crown Crates by simply logging into the game and killing one enemy monster in the hour after the Keynote stream (between 1:00PM EDT and 2:00PM EDT). Console rewards will be delivered on August 28.
    So that's 6pm for UK, and 7pm (or 19:00) for CEST countries, like e.g. germany..
    (pls correct if I'm wrong!)

    Why at noon? It will be hard to sneak it on my phone a work. Will there be a replay we can watch and still earn the pet and crates?

    My friend has an already created ESO account. He created it during the previous event of a free play. But then he did not login into the game. The game is not bought from him. Now when he try to enter the game from that account, the client of the game shows that the account is not active. On this page it is written that it a new account will not be created. What's he doing wrong?

    That was quite interesting (the ESO parts). Now, can I stop watching and still qualify for the drops? It's been an hour and stuff is still going on, though it's all DOOM gameplay now.

    edit: Answer doesn't matter, there was too much motion sickness setting in to continue, stream is shut down and I just hope I get a fire puppy later. The increased Plus benefits are intriguing so I'm glad I saw the ESO bits.

    I noticed that the pets (and presumably crates) seem to have been sent out to the players who "attended" the QuakeCon keynote address online via Twitch, since they're running around all over PC/NA. I haven't gotten mine, and when I've asked in zone chat, I haven't yet been able to find anyone else who's still waiting on theirs. I logged into both my Twitch and ESO accounts, and watched the stream on the Bethesda Twitch page (using the link in the news announcement). I know it's not the 17th yet, but since they seem to have been delivered, I'm wondering if something has gone wrong and I should create a ticket for this.

    Also, I LOVE that Murkmire mount, and really hope it's part of the collector's edition pack for the DLC! I main an Argonian, so I'm super excited by the Murkmire environment we got to glimpse.
