    @Kabam Zibiit 2 hour delay? Why not push back a day as you mess over a lot of people in different time zones and it shortens day 5 by 2 hours. Where it effects some alliances rank rewards

    It probably won't shorten day 5, they'll just push it back so it ends at 3 MST.

    I do see the point about the time zones tho. Definitely gonna affect quite a few alliances
    Yeah that will mess it up for 5 days. Which just sucks.

    1) make aq 4 days and always Monday-Thursday. Friday-Sunday always off.
    2) make section 2 also have 9 lanes so you have a backup for that section as well.

    Oh wow, reduced timers while screwing over the international teammates, and day 5...bold move Cotton. How hard is it to kick it back a day...my goodness Kabam team 🤦‍♂️

    Anything official has been said? The banner disappeared for me.
    Looks like they updated the banner to mention 30 minute timers for this cycle

    Probably harder than you think. You have to think about all the other AQ series after this. If you push it back a day today, Everything after this series has to get pushed back or they'll shorten the off time between this series and the next. Then you have to reschedule all the events around AQ as well.
  • Hey there everyone, the team resolved the issue and are going to be starting Alliance Quests 2 hours after the normal start time. The end time for the quest will be moved back 2 hours as well and AQ Energy will be on 30 minute timers to help adjust for this change as well. Thank you for your patience as we worked to get this resolved.

    Yeah, figured it would be a pain somehow.

    You really want to be doing aq, a game mode everyone hates on the weekend? Lol ok

    Having the time pushed 2 hours later is very inconvenient. My schedule is such that I now won’t be able to join until 2 hours after aq begins, and then won’t be able to move again until after I sleep. 30 minute timers do nothing to fix this issue which I am certain isn’t isolated to myself. Wouldn’t it be a wiser choice to push it to start tomorrow at the normal time?

    By the time AQ starts some of us won't be awake to be able to join in time. Not even 30 minute timers can make up for not joining AQ when it starts and you know that very well.
  • DaphboyDaphboy Posts: 481 ★★★
    I mean, even starting it right now would make a difference for me as I could get in and use some energy at least and not just be sitting there for 2 hours holding everyone up in my BG.

    I'd rather keep the schedule the way it is. I work during the week so I prefer when it lines up with the weekend.

    To each their own. I think the opposite and want nothing to do with weekend aq. Especially if it starts 2 hours later. This is going to be a nightmare for mixed us/international groups.
    30 minute timer does nothing if people are asleep lol...

  • KnightZeroKnightZero Posts: 854 ★★★
    Yeah don't understand this 30 min timer, because it's useless for international members who have already slept.

    yes but the 2hr late start won't affect future AQ series. Not sure how that relates what you said about no AQ on the weekend. It's only starting late due to a bug with this series.

    Well when they wake up, they'll get more energy faster for more moves later. May not help right this minute but for later in the days cycle.

    Hey there everyone, the team resolved the issue and are going to be starting Alliance Quests 2 hours after the normal start time. The end time for the quest will be moved back 2 hours as well and AQ Energy will be on 30 minute timers to help adjust for this change as well. Thank you for your patience as we worked to get this resolved.

    Just gotta change people’ work/sleep schedules and we’ll be good /s

    You know that time delay will cause issues with the players regardless of pushing the aq end cycle by 2 hours or not. Should’ve just cut your losses and dropped the week altogether instead of forcing it (I know that’s a week of rank up mats lost but what other options are there that won’t eff people over?)

    If you’re willing to drop a week of AQ nothing is stopping you.

    Link nodes are now on every lane. So you're going to have to hit mini's linked, or wait till they wake up and the cycle repeats.

    If they drop a week of AQ, everyone will be even more upset and expect compensation etc.. Just roll with what it is.

    In our alliance most players already sleep. 30 minute timers wont help to complete the maps.
    How long do they sleep for if that's why you can't complete the map?

    It's showing it's going to end in 30 minutes...... @Kabam Zibiit
  • SpiralSpiral Posts: 83
    Looks like it's 30 minutes to complete the whole map instead of 30 minute energy times xD.
    Nice one.

    Just started AQ and it’ll end in 28 mins
    Also, map modifiers say “coming soon”

    Just end it and start again tomorrow
