    why do I think ... that .. if Kixeye did not post about the time reduction ...

    Most people would not have even Noticed the change?
    Considering that I do the majority of my event the last 2 days I would have noticed the very moment the event timer started bro. 
    fair enough Bro, I usually get in my rounds early

    For someone who plays 4 hours a day (at most), its way too short to finish event in time, if kixeye wants to shrink event's period, they need to take off 3 or 4 main bases aswell, to balance between the amount of days they kept after reduction and what a player can achieve in one day, a whole day taken off just out of the blue without any event track length modification or even track difficulty is just extreme imo.

    And don't forget it's 2 new units this event, 2 types of tokens & 1 new tech, so it's not like it's normal month after month same design. They not only change the time to 24 hour LESS, but they gave us more to get done, so yes I totally agree with your comment & feedback 100%.

    not happy if they shorten event now, fine for next event so you can plan properly i not started event properly yet, due to commitments, so need all the days possible to achieve xp of 2 to 4 mil depending on event difficulty, unfortunately i not a player who can complete my event in 2 days usely takes at least that for one round, for me, and not asked for help since i got over my connection problems.

    funny that the old system was events being 7 days now it's 6 days and your making a poll wanting to get it to either stay 6 days like it is now or shorten it another day to 5 days?

    A small part of the incorrect times was based off the poll being made before some forums post made by Kixy were later updated/clarified (even the players were confused when the post were made), but the community understands very well we just want it set back the way it was in general. We just want it set back to what it was & based on the poll that's pretty clear the majority want it set back to the way it was originally.

    Sorry but to make decisions like this mid event is utter BS. you cant tell us an event is on for 6days, have people plan around this then shorten a full day half way through. I need an extra day. Not all of us sit all day doing nothing playing a game. We have lives, work,families etc. Enough with this nonsense and get it back to 6 days.

    People want less that hit 50 mil each event.... sorry buts thats fishy in itself. every event 50mil xp like its needed when theres nothing to buy with it. If you're shortening but a day you best get ready to compensate me xp in return.

    And after I finished one track, I noticed that we HAVE TO buy the Seraph unit with exp, its not earned like the excavator unit.

    Who hurt kix to go off road like this? seriously.

    Lot's of people been saying another 24 hours vanished from their events yesterday morning, so this could be what's being referenced.

    @KIX_Lyle I have been out of the game for more than a year and a half. I am trying to catch up to everyone as this is my second event back. I do not agree with shortening the timer. It takes me forever to get through the tracks to get exp because of my out dated units and i have no help. Your basically listening to the guys that have everything and are bored with the events period. You are not listening tho the community at all, you guys made this decision on a whim. Its not fair to the players who are trying to catch up on units.

    I usually finish my event in the first 3-4 days, but I still think that it should have been left alone, because some people simply don't have the time to invest to grind it all out in the first few days, and in my case, there are times when i struggle to complete in the first few days. At those times, i have to finish it up on my days off, which are monday and tuesday, and cutting off tuesday, means i only have 1 full day that i can grind it out.
    if i didn't happen to be on a leave of absence from work right now, i wouldn't have been able to complete event, and as is, I didn't go for the unlimited unlock on the Seraph, just unlocked a platoon's worth

    but the post i quoted he stated "you cant tell us an event is on for 6days, have people plan around this then shorten a full day half way through"          so all i was saying is that it had been cut down to 5 days all along

    five days would be fine if event was not so OP and the xp payout was not so low. but shortening the event without running it by the community first sucks balls.

    During this event TWICE I have had to play with so much lag that I lost my key assets - having such a long repair time has led to me 'retiring' from the event.  Sort the lag out and maybe then reduce the event timeline.  Until then keep to 6 days if not extend it to 7 or 8 to compensate for your servers being so [email protected]  PS - where has my event XP gone and why have you stopped the event so early just because those without a life whinged...?
