In hindsight my past comments were a bit too reactionary. It's impossible to please everyone, and I've been convinced the amount of people relying on an exact known time frame makes this decision much harder than I had initially realized. I still sympathize with everyone annoyed by it and understand the feeling (especially considering I shared that feeling at first), but I now have a "there was no good solution, so they had to decide what seemed best" stance.
So is the 'should' you slipped in there your guys way of saying it may not unlock on time and you all will push it back ANOTHER 30 days?
Could you use the event timer?
I'm sure I read somewhere you mentioned you could pick which day and times things happen.
Looking forward to atempting T3 raids on Sunday 19th April.
The 'should' is my way of saying that there are forces in the universe outside of my control.
We are reasonably certain that the Tier 3 raids will unlock on April 16th at 9am Pacific.
Working at 4am? Love it! Best time of day to get something done!
Maybe. We can't check to see if an event has run, only if it is or isn't running, so like it'd have to be an event that started running on the day / time we wanted to unlock the raids and continue running in perpetuity which isn't pretty. But no major rush. This isn't something we'll have to consider till later this year if we determine that we want to time-delay raids unlocking for the next expansion.
Nope. Check yo time zones!
11 minutes past 2, that can't be right!
Friday, Sunday and then Thursday. At 9 am. Because you are using a system that doesn't allow for more flexibility than 30-day intervals.
I have a request: please never use this method of unlocking raids again. Pretty please?
Please do not use time-delay unlocking for raids again. Please.
Next year raise all tradeskills to 400. Link the raid Tiers to average tradeskill level. No piggies allowed!
It's not the time delay unlock that's the issue, it's the method used to time-delay it that's the issue. They have delayed tiers in the past without this issue.
Yeah what is there contact info? any idea?
The decreased duration lockout timer bonus didn't end on time yesterday and despite the fact the raids were obtained and beaten well past when bonus was meant to expire they still seemed to have the decreased lockout timer as if the bonus was still in effect. Likewise, characters who have "birthdays" tomorrow April 3rd have the rainbow color names today April 2nd. I bring this up as this suggests some lack of synchronicity between the actual time/date and what the server thinks it is. If a prior lack of synchronicity was the issue with the T3 launch, it doesn't appear to be resolved just yet. Or if the two events are unrelated, maybe still worth looking into as the game or something gives the appearance of being a bit off in terms of actual dates.
So . . . T3 is supposed to open Thursday.
Is it actually going to open? Has it been tested?
best question being... if T3 for whatever reason does NOT unlock like it should, has DP come up with a way to manually override/unlock the event or at least come up with a backup plan?
Oh boy, what a mess.
You guys really know how to kick the can down the road. There is this thing called quality control...
Time to dust this thread off again.
Last time this happened it took you all many hours to communicate with us and even then the communication was sparse and uninformative, how will this be different?
So With more Issue on the T3 release have we decided to do away with this Timed unlocked yet?
