That means that if you go east from the Rinkworks server, I am seven hours ahead, without crossing the international date line. But if you go west, then I am seventeen hours behind, but you have to cross the international date line, so that adds one full day.

From what I understand, one "side" of the date line means from the International Date Line to the Prime Meridian. So, if you're on the + side of the GMT, You should be on "the other side".

And BTW, I'm not too sure that the game runs in EST. Might be an hour or two off.
