Valentine Event shop

Postby DreamingDæmon » Sat Mar 07, 2015 6:36 am

I know there was another topic that touched on this, but I'm on cellphone so haven't a prayer of finding it...

At 1030 server today (Saturday 7th March), the Valentine event shop showed 1d remaining, implying 24-48hrs left of the event. This would indicate that the shop will close within a few hours at most of the last Tragick spawn.

Could we get a confirmation in advance as to when the store closes? I recall with a shudder past events where the event store closed as the final spawn did, leaving people with a bagful of event currency they couldn't use, and then lost.

It's 07:15ish now and the store says it closes in 23 hours so I guess it shuts at 07:00 server Monday

That's the question. Does the shop close just as last spawn begins? I must be misunderstanding something......

Event ends at 0700 Monday, so it's generally believed that the last Tragick spawn will be 0330. The spawn "due" at 0700 won't occur due to event end.

So it looks as though (based on Dawn's comment about shop timer above, I've not logged in yet today and seen) that the final spawn is 0330-0400 and the shop closes 0700.
IMO, 3 hrs after final spawn is not a big enough window, and people are gonna get caught out.


Oh, and for the record, I had my T19 weapons last Monday - I'm thinking about people who are close to the wire for t19s or Eyes and/or planning on lockboxing a stash here.

The shop will close on 3/9 at 2am EDT / 6am GMT (06:00 server time) at the end of the event. We did not incorporate a 24 hour buffer of the shop being open for 24 hours after the event ends. Please be aware of the closing time and spend your candy hearts asap.

The shop closed at 07:00 server time. There seems to be multiple irregularities of times of updates and event times recently. Maybe blame Daylight Saving Time in US for the confusion...?

Happens a lot. Don't know why they don't just have the shop open for 24hrs after every event as standard, because some people always get caught out.

Ily....

*drumroll*

I agree with you wholeheartedly!


The thing with event shops that drives me mad, and I'm sure that in this instance it's not just my nitpicking, is the inconsistency between events. Sometimes it's 24hrs. Sometimes it's 5. Sometimes it's 3.5. Sometimes it's 0. The timer in the shop is useful, to be fair, but even so, a standard of event closes, shop closes 24hrs later would be top banana.

If nothing else a few more people might waver and spend GS for that "must-have" item, right?

We usually do have the event shop open for an extra day to avoid last minute buyers being left out but the new event planner did not incorporate that when we implemented it. It was my error on the new feed about the ending time due to daylight savings adjustment. I thought that I had fixed the mistake earlier in the week. We will make sure that upcoming events do have a buffer time but this event shop has closed.

I don't believe it's lost! In my experience it will be there again next year :-)
