I’m not going to lie…(and you shouldn’t trust anyone who starts by saying that…as it implies that they lie all of the time, and this is an exception…like politicians who start off something with”trust me…”)…I already hate this event.
Why? Because they have ignored the two most requested aspects for improving the game. First, we asked that they “Make the Events Shorter.” Their answer? This is one of the longest…if not THE longest events in TSTO history. It will run a full 48 days…and the acts have now expanded to 16.5 days…which for all practical purposes, should be 17.
The other thing most of our readers asked for, was reducing or eliminating the crafting in these events. What did they do? Expanded it.
But…here we are…a bunch of addicts who are going to play the update, whether we say we won’t or not. We will grit our teeth for expanded/extended grinding…and see if we can outlast EA. There are LOADS of new items…without actually increasing the item limit enough for most of the longtime players to add them without “device issues.” But…that would make THREE gripes in one post…so I will refrain.
Instead…I will simply offer up the calendar(s) so you can stay on pace to GET IT ALL!!
Let’s start off by saying that this calendar is a bit wonky…because the start of the event was/is wonky. For us in the REAL Springfield…it started on Wednesday the 21st at 7am-PDT. However, the Act Ends at 5a on Friday the 6th…which is pretty damn long, and confusing if you are making a calendar that crosses several timelines.
So……..for the purposes of trying to make sense of this, and keep you on track…I have the calendar ending roughly 5 hours early (Thursday at midnight)…just so you aren’t caught off guard. Clear as mud? Well…it makes as much sense as the expanded event, and the start stop time in the servers. ERGH!!
But, here are the numbers… have fun…set your timers for every 4 hours…and Grind, baby, grind!
