    It's all about the greenback. Kixeye wisdom is to try to make us rush hoping we'll coin any repairs

    Technically, the event play time will be reduced from 144 hours (6 days) to 120 hours (5 days). This was done due to too small player activity in the final days of the event in accordance to CM_Lyle on the WC Discord server.

    but do you want to know why is that? 
    because what bases spawn 1 day after event? 
    not everyone in this game own ds/elite ds/ omega ds/ siege/ elite siege/omega siege etc. and they need 1 day to fix their toons to farm those bases just for that 1 day. Funny and silly. I know that players that have everything maxed and literally own any toon are getting bored of this but can you give % of population that is on "top" ?  End game or rather owning everything in the game have such minuses :/ this works for every game/ every MMORPG etc not only war commander.

    The reason for player activity drop of near the end of the event is every unit they own is broken and repairing..... nothing left to do bases with so..

    Maybe if they shortened the amount of events , that would please more people .... oh sorry their bread and butter coiners rule.    Yes the events are to long, but also increasingly difficult (unless you coin). Yes activity decreases because 'normal' player have, like already quote 'run out of toons'. Maybe people cannot play 24/7 to enable them to get the 'new toys'

    Most of us want the event every 3 months, every month is a pain in the ****...taking time away was stupid. IMHO Kix are just catering to coiners only these days so stuff the lv 40 who needs a day to repair.

    Did Kixeye consider that the back half of the event is the beginning of most people's work week so there would obviously be less engagement? No, they just make assumptions and changes without consulting players and finding the facts. But this is nothing new for Kixeye.

    Do you guys even think of low lv players who need time for the event??? Im usually done with event after a couple of days but lower lvs aren't, yeah I have heard the BS that low lvs can't expect to get all the good stuff but if you don't have the good stuff you can't even farm res bases. 
     For to long Kix has catered to a select few and listened to a select few on the forums and made changes for them and it needs to stop!

    How about you stop messing up this game kixeye and making things so difficult that players and leaving this game. Stop taking away days for an event when alot of us work full time jobs and have a hard enough time to get event in as it is. The main issue is the difficulty of the event you make things too hard and players are getting far too many repairs to even do the event the difficulty that you all have it at now. You need to tone down the events and give players that keep you in jobs a better and more fair playing field. If you are geared towards your customers you need to learn and listen to what we want.

    No worries it,s to give them time to extend event after the extended maintenance at start of event.   Plus one days less worth of tickets for them to sort through

    Well this is definately not the case with me.Usually after the first time thru the missions it is so easy and gets boring to continue and grind away to get a few more xp points ,big fun yippee.They should probably do events every other week,whats the diff,events are to close together as it is now.

    I personally would prefer events to be held every 3 months so more testing can be done to iron out bugs or glitches, unless you coin heavy you never get the chance to max units before the next event comes around. I'd also like to see a return of defense only events but as that doesn't cost you to coin as much I dont see that happening.

    it shouldnt end at that tie of the day. I hate the time it starts and the time it ends either start it. then again i am on est time, so its literally starting in the middle of the day if anything should be evaluated it should be that.

    And yet again kix could not be asked to post this important info on their own player forum ? Why? @CyberToad and @Skipjack ... This communication gap needs to be looked at, still...again.

    Can you inform those of us who are not on discord, what  percentage of this "increasing number of players"is, compared to the number of actual players in the game? Never on this forum have i seen a "number of players" asking for the event to be shortened. Decreased in difficulty,reduced in number,yes, but not shortened.
