DEFCON event mess!

Post by Crocker » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:28 pm

I do understand that is is dificult to produce new code, features, events etc.

But do not understand the mess you are creating with crucial event as DEFCON One?
Last time you shortened last stage of the event by one hour without any notice.
This time you postponed event start for 3 hours.

Dissapointment after dissapointment. Why is it so hard for you to stick to timetable? Why is it so hard to announce modifications in advance so we can be in the loop? Majority of regular players do take this event seriously and trying to plan in advance regarding different time-zones, event duration, event intensity and other real-life activities like work, familly obligations etc.

You are not helping at all!

Greetings Commander Crocker,

we are sorry to hear that you haven't fully enjoyed this week's DEFCON One event. The event needs to be approachable to all players from the server, however the population of most server rarely consists entirely by players from the same time zone. This why the event start will vary from week to week.

Please kindly note that:
1. The DEFCON One start time can be seen at all times in the Upcoming Events menu. You can even check when the next event starts, approximately 6 days from now, discuss with your allies and adjust according to your respective time zones.

2. We take the DEFCON One event seriously and strive to provide a fair and competitive event for all players. Running the event every week at the exact same time will only benefit a portion of the players.

Thank you for understanding,
War.Advisor
Best of luck on the Instant War battlefield ^^

So we can expect event start time to change from event tot event? Good to know.
What about changes of event like stage duration etc. Can we expect to be notified about taht?
DEFCON before last one (yesterday) was changed without any notification. We could not know that last stage was shortened fo one hour until stage 3 started. Only then it was obvious that it is not going to last 3h as first DEFCON.

I do not mind changing the DEFCON timings I just wish that changes are propagated in timely manner.

Hi Commander Crocker,

some variation in the event starting time can be expected and we agree that the Stage Duration change could have been communicated in a more clear way. We apologize for any inconveniences caused.

Best Regards
