Summoners, we are aware of some issues affecting Solo/Alliance events, and Alliance Quests. We are investigating the cause, and working to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Why did Summoner Showdown disappear early?

Why did the Summoner Showdown event disappear early? The in-game mail said we had until Sept 21, 10am PDT, which is today. There should be almost 5 hours left on this event but it disappeared 10mins ago for me. Why?

    Just got on to finish this and it’s gone for me as well. Wasn’t planning on doing it all last minute but had only one left. Not cool

    Weird. Definitely is supposed to be still on.

    Well two things - 1/ announcement, 2/ timer in game were showing different times. Obviously it is developer's mistake. However seeing that timer and knowing that mistakes less or more often happen I would still do it before timer expire (just in case). It ended only 7 h before due time and event was running whole weak so it was definitely doable earlier, especially that fight itself in show up difficulty is not too long. My view on it would be different if no timer in game. But it is only my opinion, I fully respect other players' opinions and feelings. Greetings!

    If they had different timers to the announcement, pretty sure they'd change them ASAP like in the recent past

    But a global event that ends nearly 3 hours before the announced end time something must have caused it

    I agree. As I wrote, it is on developer undoubtly. What I stated is not to show that players messed up, but rather that there were signs in the sky and earth that it may end earlier than in announcement and when one see such signs can ignore them or take action. Not taking action is risky in such circumstances though.

    Stop complaining about absolutely everything, you have had a week to complete the event.

    These competitions are cutthroat.everys econd counts.
  • Given the tendency of this game to go down unpredictably for hours at a time, events to start/finish at slightly the wrong time, and for games to start lagging and cause you to crash out of games losing 50% health, I'm going to humbly suggest that "Waiting till the last minute" isn't a well-thought-out strategy...

    Nonsense! lol
  • Too many things this month expiring on different days and/or weeks.

    Noticed the timer last night, so I made sure to finish it last night. Not sure for how long before that the timer had been saying a “6 am EST / 3am PST ?” time.

    This makes sense, sure. The problem is, it also assumes people are checking the timer and doing the math themselves when it makes the most sense to just take the announcement at face value. If you aren’t checking in often on that specific event, you may not even realize this to be the case.

    I can speak for myself, but for me personally it is way easier to check timer than calculate when will be certain announced hour in my lovely Poland :)

    Fair enough. I live in the time zone they use for announcements so it’s the best way for me to track. I see how that would be different for someone across the globe.

    Leaderboard is still being updated instead of showing results calculation (or something like that).

    New leader in US zone.

    Ghost is marching ahead of Magneto.

    I believe it is final. I made my fight which game me second place in EU some time before Showdown closed. I will paste it here (why not): . 7h maybe made difference for me and maybe not, I will never know :D However we all had same chances. Congratulations to all who killed this IWIM and special congratulatinons to those who are in top!
  • Hey gang!

    Sorry for the delay in an update here. We have an official announcement on it right now, but don't have further information. We'll keep you all posted HERE.

    So... It was an accident?

    Ladies and gentleman of the jury, I rest my case!

    A second unaddressed issue was the leaderboard not being updated promptly.

    Is the 'current' still visible leaderboard the final standings?

    What about those of us finishing up the show up difficulty? The million gold and 900k 5* shards is quite a bit to miss because of such an error. No way to get that rectified?
