SA timer is one hour less than the SA goals timers.
Which is correct? I'll guess SA timer but would like confirmation.


Also, SA ends in the middle of the night for USA?
Strange time to end an event.

My guess is goals. And I like this new end time. Now people aren't trying to get their last hits in in school/at work but in the comfort of their own homes. So when I yell at my phone out of frustration no one besides my family will look at me funny

It will end at 8 am in the morning. I don't like that, I always wake up later :(

On the other hand, I could combine this with a 60-minute run, some cardio and afterwards taking a nice shower and making a nice smoothie. Sounds like a nice morning. I'm in :)

To paraphrase an Articulate Author: If you don't like that, you should stop playing. Just take a break until SA is over. Simple as that.

Maybe when the server crashed it screwed up Gree's internal clock. Definitely an odd time to end it, but I won't lose any sleep over it.

And this shows us your IQ :) you were complaining about EB. I am not complaining about SA, I'm telling you that I have to wake up 8 am and that I normally don't wake up at that time. That has nothing to do with the game and/or an event. By the way, if you'd have read further you'd have seen that it is no problem at all. Try again next time. This time you failed so hard that it is embarassing to see.

In terms of time/time zones some group inevitably is favored. Perhaps randomly selecting a time would be fairer... Or perhaps choosing the zone with the most players in it and making it ideal for them.
Anyway, the guy's just asking a question, which was answered. Doubt he meant to imply anything.

SA finishing time is fine. Europeans and Asians routinely get screwed by event starting times.

Mrs Cash

My SA timer says 17hrs, the goal timer says 18 hrs. Regardless, that makes it 3 or 4 am ET. Personally, I don't care, I will not lose any sleep over it. At least out overseas members might be able to do something, but they might be at school or work, so it seems to be poorly timed all around.

Bet the recent 18 hr server problem messed something up.

3 options:

- Community manager of this forum said: 11 am PST (which is 8 pm CET)
- SA-Symbol says 17hrs:10 minutes left (which is tomorrow 9am CET)
- SA-Syn goal says 18hrs:10 minutes left (which is tomorrow 10am CET)

which one is correct ???

Jeronimo
06-08-2015, 08:14 AM
Here's the deal: just look at the time that the in-game globe tells you. Syndicate goals are always 1 hour delayed. Why? We don't know, but it's a fact. That's all.

No, that's bullcrap. It ends in 16 hours and 30 minutes from now. Rigt at this moment it is 6.30 am (PST time), so the event would end in 4 hours and 30 minutes, according to the manager. That is just bullcrap, because the globe tells us 16 hours and 30 minutes. And that is the correct time. It will end 11 pm (PST time). And stop crying about it now. Europeans always start at 11 pm or later with events. Man up and accept it that another time zone has an advantage now.

They say lots of things, but usually the event (not goals) timer is right.

That is fine, but I'm not sure I can believe this since it is off from both game timers & Bolt does not play CC, meaning she has to go by info from developers which is not all that reliable.

Meh, I guess we'll all find out at the same time: when SA ends.

SA has always started and finished at 7pm UK time (8pm Central European time). Until things look different I'm assuming that's the case with this one. That's 2pm eastern, 11am Pacific for the record.

But things do look different: both in-gamer timers are different & not the typical time, like you posted, and wasn't the last SA 4-days long, not 3? :confused:

I don't understand why there should be much confusion regarding event end time. It's totally nuts that game clock, goals clock and forum response are still in total disagreement.

There is so much confusion because this is the environment in which GREE wants to run their businesses and apps.

If they can't impress us with skills, they have to confuse us with bologna.

Considering there are other threads asking the same thing and Bolt replied to this thread with an ambiguous title, ignoring the others, I'm not surprised. This is GREE-moderating at it's best; we should be used to it from this team by now. :( F- Yes, I know they are human but c'mon! It only takes like 45 days to learn a job and this job is not that hard.

For a GREE employee to post in this thread that the event "is scheduled" to end at a different time than what is posted in the app is rediculous. An official post should have been stickied instead of hiding this info.

Get CS ready for a boat-load of tickets!

Jeez a month or two ago you said you would update us when you had more information about accomplices, then they disappeared with no update. Then the question was asked if Raid Boss health and war health was the same energy you said yes, and that was wrong. Now the question of what is the end time of SA was answered incorrectly. Why have this forum if we get no information and then when we do its incorrect?

I've merged all threads concerning the end of SA to keep everything together. Apologies again for the error. On a weekend day it is harder for me to ask a developer directly so I opted to look at an event calendar for the information on when the event would end, rather than wait until Monday. I did not know that the calendar was not up to date which led to me giving you the wrong information. I was able to confirm this morning (we're located in California) that the event duration was indeed extended and no longer ended at 11am PST. I'll make sure to be more careful going forward and endeavor to ensure we have updated information at all times.

Please note that there is a 1 hour difference between when the event ends and the time the goals end. This is intentional and intended to help with some of the end of event concurrency issues (where some players report goals not completing).

The event calendar is correct, the event will end exactly as stated in-game. In my rush to correct my previous error I stated 11pm when as you can see it is 12 midnight PST. So ignore my previous statements of 11am or 11pm and just go by the calendar please.
