I can't believe you change the times this far into an event because of whiners! This was the first event with a decent time interval. Raids happen year round. Special events are few and far between. I like the challenge of difficulty not timing for events! Now even though I'm so close to completing this event I have to figure out a new schedule that will keep changing. Ridiculous!

I HATE the new schedule. Like what was said above, raiding is year round! It's nice to take a week break for a summer event. Lasting 30 min helps nothing, unless you have deep pockets. Every 2 hours was consistent, I could look at the clock and know it was up in a few min. 3.5 hours is much harder the manage.

Confirmed, every 3 1/2 hours. Total nightmare for scheduling....anything, really.

Missed the event due to my assumption that it would start 3.5 hours after the last one ended...

I understand your desire to please raiders as they buy the most shields, but this has alienated a lot of people. As many have said, raids happen every single day, all day.

If there was a sufficient amount of raids being cancelled, that means people were enjoying the event! Why would you make a schedule change to force them to raid the same monotonous raids?

You're choosing what content people get to enjoy, regardless of what their own actual preference may be.

That is extremely backwards.

I have posted before regarding this event and it's timeframe vs strength.

I have resigned myself to not being able to make 100 kills and trying to get 30 kills on as many toons as possible.

But as mentioned above the new schedule is abolutely abysmal. I have no idea when the next event is scheduled and end up checking every 30 minutes.

Events MUST take scheduling priority over raids. Just because the strongest players have managed to get 100 kills and want to start raiding again the rest of us mere mortals have to suffer

Please change the schedule back or at least to something easier to figure out than 3.5 hours. I have been having a lot of fun with were-chef, but with this new schedule, I know I'm going to mess up and miss him... possibly miss the 100 kill mark because of it.

I understand you are trying to accomidate some gm's that were complaining. I am also a gm. Yes, the event has reduced the raids we are currently running, however my members (and I) are having fun. Isn't that what gaming is supposed to be about?

Start every 3.5hrs. Wow. That's a surprise, and not a welcome one. It's going to interfere with a lot of guilds' scheduled raids, in a less predictable fashion (due to not being at the same times each day), and for longer (30 mins rather than 15 each time), so each episode will have a greater impact on any raids at or about the same time. More people will abandon raids for the event, because 2hrs wasn't that long to wait til the next one while 3.5hrs is.

I was really positive about this event. Got the 100 on my main, up to 70 on my mini when the schedule changed. Now... I doubt I'll get the 100 on my mini, anyway. And it's really taken the shine off the event.
Disappointing :-(

I like the new sched'.

TAKE THAT.

I'm only ten kills away anyways, but the old one messed with our raids sooo bad. 2hrs wasn't enough time to recharge, do the event(again), and raid. At least the Chef drops pots :D

So don't do the event every time. Choose whether to raid or run the event. Why is the answer to you not being able to do everything making it so everyone has less choice?

Seems rather short sighted, but I suppose we are just meant to "take that".

Horrible schedule timing. I'd much rather have it occur every 4 hours, for planning purposes. Good going on the 30 minute timer though, this will make it easier to get the frying pan on all my toons.

I made this schedule in excel to keep track:

20:00:00 31/07/2013
23:30:00
03:00:00 1/08/2013
06:30:00
10:00:00
13:30:00
17:00:00
20:30:00
00:00:00 2/08/2013
03:30:00
07:00:00
10:30:00
14:00:00
17:30:00
21:00:00
00:30:00 3/08/2013
04:00:00
07:30:00
11:00:00
14:30:00
