Totally ridiculous. With all the downtime, with all the hassle and aggrivation of a patch that breaks one of the most important convenience features in the game (autofire), and a multi-hour server crash, they should have EXTENDED the anniversary event NOT cut it short!!!
Well i've had the theory that cryptic can't tell time for a while, this was made very apparent by the STF weekends originally appearing in the middle of the week for 24 hours. Take that into consideration it's no surprise that they can't get anything out on time.
Alright Captains, we've tracked down Q and he should now be back at his post. For some reason, he thought he could leave his post early and no one would notice. We've also asked that he stick around until 7pm PST tonight (10pm EST/ 3am GMT [2/7])
Thanks for your patience and happy Party Crasher hunting!
