    While it is unfortunate that the event isn't able to start on time, I think we would all rather they get the issues fixed BEFORE the timer starts counting down. Yes, this sucks but it's the lesser of two evils and has to be done. you obviously have not play this long...lol

    it all started with this conversation:

    programmer: Ah, sir, we just realized that all players can win all the prizes without coining.

    CEO: WHAT! STOP THE CLOCK NOW!


     Sad, but probably true

    That's because different worlds in the game have staggered start times. For example, Sector 1-100 start. Then 101-200 start an hour later. 201-300 another hour later. You see where I'm going with this?? It's always been this way. Raid start times for different worlds have always been staggered.

    In sector 113 bases have different starting times on their event icon.  WTF?

    So if it's delayed a few hours, does that mean more hours get added to the other end?  If so, could they please also fix the alliance bonus reset issues before the raid ends?

    Good question. Asking for clarification on that.

    Any down time will be added to the end of the raid.

    Small suggestion -- start half repairs now so folks can have some cheaper fun while they wait

    At 2 am pacific I came on, Rearranged some fleets in my dock, started some repairs and started a small upgrade.  I just got on the game and all of that has been undone,like it was reset back to a previous time.  Must be having some serious issues  require a reset like that.

    How long is the delay, I checked earlier and sure it was due to start at 8pm GMT (UK) but now not due to start till midnight, ie 4 hours


    I'm in sector 454


    perhaps I had the original time wrong, pretty sure I didn't though, kind of annoying as I'm not going to get much done this evening and ultimately will loose about 4 hours of gametime, wish half price repair would start, I got some fleets to fix...

    this whole game is "OPTIONAL"  so what's your point?     Any event that is advertised to start at a certain time whether its a concert, movie, wedding or graduation would be annoying if ppl showed up and found out it started 3 hours later would it not?    Guess what... those are all "OPTIONAL" too.

    I'm alright with this. Sure the delay is annoying, but hey, at least it wasn't during the raid event.

    Took off 1/2 day from work to play and now you delay the start.   Great...you keep pushing us to quit and find another game.   Good job Kixeye you make a commitment that you can not honor.  Are you a government agency?

    They planned the raid, advertised it and gave everyone 7 days notice.   There shouldn've have been any need to "fix" it.
