Did you even think that it could be something they just realized that something wasn't in the patch that should have been.....like your DOUBLE REWARD BOOST. Guess you don't want that do you? So we have to wait an extra hour. So what.
I don't know about you guys, but where I work when we advertise something special going on, we make sure everything is actually ready when it's time for the special event to start. I mean ... do they have any sort of organization around here?

I agree. Although unexpected things might happen that will need emergency power to maintenance, it's always a good idea to actually tell us, the playesr, why you are doing the emergency maintenance.

We like to be informed, and hopefully, we will get to know this soon.

But it does look bad for new players and those returning for special events like this one...

Not everything is predictable I'm afraid, especially with a block of code as huge as this.

Happens so often I've given up being angry about it. It's just amusing now.
