Today it was day 3 of the so-called “Thanksgiving Event”. Meanwhile it is clear: It is a bug, why we don’t get any gifts. 9D Hermit – not sure if this is the real Steven-Elliot Altman – posted on the forum this message:
Warriors, it seems there is a bug regarding the gifts (at least the Buff is working), and we await Indy21 to patch to fix the bug so that the rest of the prizes will come.
Unfortunately, their technicians were gone for the weekend before we learned there was an error in the time released gifts.
We shall sort the error out as soon as possible, and I am hopeful all of the gifts shall be delivered (albeit some may come late)
This is poor planning. Period. But there was even a VGM, [VGM]Kami, which liked to put lipstick on the pig. Let me quote him:
The patch 95 was introduced with a small error…
Please be patiente…GM’s are working at the moment to fix this small issue. 🙂
I will not comment those words. But let me quote a comment from another player, magimay:
You see that small error? I have the feeling that if dear VGM Kami would go to China, when he comes back he’ll say “yeah, I saw a small wall there, nothing impressive^^ Hope that helps 😉 “
No matter how bad this Thanksgiving Event may be, there was one thing what brought some satisfaction to the players: They still had the 4x event, as reward for the Collection Event.
16:00 GMT – The EXP Event should start now. Waiting some minutes, I’m sure it will start soon.
16:30 GMT – The people complain already like hell, especially on map chat. I wonder when the Event will start.
17:00 GMT – No message from Acclaim. Neither from a VGM nor from a GM. I am at the second Village of the North Sea and take a look how the people uses the chatbug on the map chat. Can’t believe that some people believe, there’s a [VGM]Pikatchu…
17:30 GMT – The people are just spamming and flooding the chats now. Map Chat and Lion’s Roar Chat are unclear and full of chaos and complaints.
18:00 GMT – Finally, two hours too late, a VGM is online and write to the players. It seems, like he knows exactly, the players will attack him all with words. Here’s the screenshot:
18:30 GMT – Not sure if [VGM]Aster went offline or just don’t respond anymore. Seems like the people attacked him too much with Lion’s Roars. However, The GMs decided to write now, 2 1/2 hours later, a Notice. Here are the screenshots:
The last line caused just more complaints on Lion’s Roar Chat. As a compensation they gave a special buff to the players. But that did not stopped the complaints.
The incompetence of Acclaim is worse than ever. But that’s just my opinion. But make your own opinion about that. I, for my part, just wonder how day 4 will be…
