So it seems with the last patch EA updated the start dates for a the Acts. So the new start dates are:
And the end date still remains January 13th
What’s funny is they updated the start dates for each Act, but not the premium content start dates. So Baby Jesus hit our games at 9am (ET) this morning, as he was originally supposed to. And the remaining premium items are still slated for the original Act start dates of the 26th and 4th. So 🤷♀️
Note the original Act dates weren’t just from the files. Those original start dates were on the packet of information EA sent us directly. Not sure what’s going on, or if it’ll change. Very odd on EA’s part.
Anyway, Act 2 will start tomorrow at 9am ET (unless EA changes something again). I’ll update the event page to reflect the new dates…
Very strange indeed….
And just to clarify…because some of you seem to think it’s on me because I misread or can’t count. Here’s the actual files from the game:
These are from the event launch on Dec. 9th:
And these are from the patch released on Dec. 15th:
And this is from the info pack EA sent us a week before the event even started…
Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Christmas/Invasion Before Christmas Event…Ends TOMORROW December 19th at 0800 GMT (3am ET).
Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Battery Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning batteries if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)
