Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Contest maintenance durring gold member arena

The maintenance that took place durring the gold member arena cost me valuable playing time durring my avalible time to play. Any1 else have this problem?

Comments

  • Note that this downtime had affected everyone, not just you. Everyone who had been participating in the arena would also have had to take a break from it, therefore, keeping everyone at the same points level they'd been at prior.
  • You are missing the point that when the contest was down is when i normally play. I dont have 24 hours to play

    @Kabam Vydious This logic does not work on a game that is played all over the world, personally the game was down while i was asleep so it made no difference to my life but people in different timezones have been affected so the whole it was down for everyone reasoning does not work

    That logic doesnt work simply because people had less time to hit milestones. This means people couldnt hit the mikestones they should have. Why is that hard to understand?

    Woke up about an hour into the downtime.. And this game was down for about 12 hrs was it? I felt the full thing. :D

    It isn't a matter of not understanding. It's a matter of knowing that this was an unfortunate situation for everyone. The game being down for everyone at the same time is true, unfortunately for some, it was at more inconvenient times. We understand that and apologize greatly for it.

    People who were asleep for a majority of the game being down were not as effected as those for whom it was a normal playing time. You work for Kabam, you should realize the game is in fact global. the game went down around 5:30 pm pst, that's 12:30 am Greenwitch mean time. People normally play at 5:30 after work, whereas most people in england would be close to sleep if not already asleep.

    See the discrepancy?

    9 hours downtime hurts people when it’s their grindtime. I ended up with this using 0 units but could have had 40 mil. Hope this is enough

    This response right here is the exact reason you guys received the backlash you did the other night when the servers were down.. Although your statement is true, it’s your smart way of trying to put someone in their place.. it’s dreadful customer relations and quite honestly, uncalled for.

    This is a perfect example of the type of communication Kabam needs to improve upon.

    To merely say the game was down for everyone and leave it at that ignores the fundamental issue, the arena going down at the exact same time affects people differently. The fact that this was for an arena where a lot of people used a lot of units to gain entry only compounds the problems here.

    And then for a Kabam representative stating initially that everyone was affected bc nobody could get in is just the kind of response that draws people’s resentment.

    Don’t you think these two statements kinda contradict each other? My interpretation of a maintenance “affecting someone” is where it forces them to either stop playing the game, or that they cannot start playing the game. My interpretation of “inconvenient times for maintenance” is when you want to play the game.

    This would mean that a convenient time for maintenance is when you’re asleep, because this happened to some people it means that the maintenance did NOT affect some people.

    By logical extension, it would mean that someone who was grinding Goldpool arena during maintenance would be at a disadvantage to someone who was sleeping during it.

    Why y'all attacking the mod tho'? He/she is literally on our side if anything. Forget the wordings of his post, scrap it all. It's the fact that he's apologizing to EVERYONE, that's what matters.

    It doesn’t appear to me that anyone is being attacked. Pointing out inconsistencies and demeanor isn’t an attack. It’s just stating the obvious.

    I wasn’t attacking Vydious and if it came across that way then I really do apologise. I was just questioning him/her because I disagree with what they’ve said regarding how it affects people.

    You really don’t know arenas if you thought that especially without 6*

    To Kabam you say it affected everyone but you guys have to be smart enough to realize that people play at different times and there is different time zones. You can’t say it was down for everyone and say that makes it fair cause the time I play is during the evening into the very late at night and the game was down the whole time for me where as if someone was sleeping during that time they weren’t affected as much. Please respond to these points I would love to know your answer.

    Kabam you need to make this right and none of the weak I’m sorry shards.
