    Every character in the game has a message that we get a free Heroic Character, but it is not allowing anyone to select one

    That message about the FREE Heroic character in the Alerts popup seems to be left over from last year's 21st Anniversary instead of this year's 22nd Annivesary. It reads:

    Title: "Anniversary Login Bonus"
    Text:" Every member that logs in during the 21st Anniversary celebration will get the ability to claim a FREE Heroic Character, once per account!"

    I agree this is misleading. Ideally this alert from last year should not be popping up this year.

    Probably shouldn't be advertising the bonus from last year, if it doesn't apply to this year. Lol.

    I mean.. if you can manage a way to log in for the 21st anniversary, I'm sure they'd be happy to grant you a free heroic toon.

    The devs are human so they occasionally screw up, this particular screw up is really rather minor as screw ups go.

    Huh? I’m pointing out that it’s in the alerts and shouldn’t be there.

    Why don't you log into the 21st anniversary. It's not that hard. Get in a time machine and go, GREAT SCOTT!

    It was sarcasm. I think this issue has many many posts already. In various forums.

    well if they made a mistake and advertised it, why wouldn't they offer it then? To do otherwise would be incredibly unprofessional

    I like your spunk, kid.

    They made a mistake, but I still think they'll stand by their offer...assuming you can log in during the 21st Anniversary.

    Oof, you’re right.

    Has anyone tried setting their PC clock to 16 March 2020? Lol

    Sorry, this was a bad string and we literally just finished pushing out a fix. Run the patcher again and you'll get the right string.
