This hyperlink will redirect players to a website that makes it easy to convert timezones. The important one for players to remember is using one of the UTC+8 timezones for comparison.

Beijing Time is an example, as all of China now follows UTC+8. That hyperlink would be helpful for somebody living in one of Russia's 11 timezones.

Maintenance can always last longer, but miHoYo estimates that it should only take five hours. Any additional hour will award the player with an extra 60 Primogems.

However, maintenance can always finish early. In this case, players will still earn 300 Primogems, regardless of how quickly it finished. Once maintenance is over, gamers should be able to play Genshin Impact 2.2.
