I ready for you all to shot me down on this, but Why not have every port/region have a set PB time. I dont mean all at the same time. First pb time could be 1hr after server down time last of the day 2hrs before. Ports/regions near (2/3 regions) Capitals could have there pb times set to a time that is prime for that nations player base. Data should be available to do this and would help merge the servers and Night flips close to home port would be some what sorted. The rest of the regions could be Given random pb time. This would give mixed and varied map and Nations would have to think tacticlly on taking a region, You cant call night flip if you take the port at night and you no it going to get attacked at night. War Company/Clan In my opion work better with this as you can target and recuit for time zone and then target you regions to suit.
