Event schedule on Christmas

a) the question is: do they really? highly doubted. in this case here, the tags most likely were done to make sure “it isn’t forgotten” the next day in this time sensitive matter.
otherwise we have a number of currently un-acknowledged bugs that are occuring ingame that are publicly known but probably aren’t even being worked on internally. For some bugs there even were announcements that “testing is in progress” - but since months not a single comment to the current status, despite asking about it again with tagged messages. So, are we being lied to on certain things or how do you explain such radio silence?
I personally have a bug report ticket open since over 1.5 years. two of the above tagged “moderators” have at some point taken over this bug report and after my answers to their questions since months again abandoned helping me without solving my bug report. there’s clear patterns…

b) if certain moderator accounts are being tagged to a important topic/bug noone can afterwards say “but we didn’t know”.

c) to me personally sometimes the answers or announcements feel like “bots” with regular mistakes and wrong informations due to possibly just copy/paste of text. happens. it is what it is.

Who ruined your breakfast?

Tagging mods on urgent matters may not make sense to you but if they wanted that to not happen, don’t you think they could and wild say so?

They never did.

Rather they are more likely to show up when they get tagged.

Weird, huh?

Just confirming tagging mods generally doesn’t get you a faster response, we’re checking almost every thread every day (outside of ie. Guild recruitment threads).

I will generally see you tagged me while I’m already in the thread reading it before I see a notification for it - we are pinged a lot across every platform we work on so they become noise rather than helpful alerts.

We get more pings than we can physically keep up with as a human being with 8 hours in our work day.

Obviously we check for PMs but we only reply to PMs on the forum if it’s about an issue between forum users (arguments, threats, privacy issues etc), or something else that should be done in private (ie. maybe we asked for an invite code or an email).

Because you mentioned it: we have in the past asked players to not ping us and explained it doesn’t make a difference but it is what it is, and that’s ok.

I think we should keep it on topic in this thread though please.

I usually only ping when something is urgent - from what I’ve seen people have handled it that way.

I’m used to pinging mods to alert them to something important because there’s usually too much on forums, servers etc to keep up with every single thing.

But if it doesn’t help because it doesn’t fit your workflow, I’ll not do it anymore. Not because I got barked at but because a mod told me it doesn’t help.

On the topic, there isn’t much right now. Waiting for feedback from your team, hoping for some good news for everyone who does anything on Christmas.


Here’s another option. Maybe your guild doesnt get all the rewards that weekend. It’s not a big deal. Like you said, “It’s a stupid match 3 game”. It doesnt matter at all.

Hey folks, update!

We have changed this weekend to the Invasion weekend and the Christmas weekend will be the Arena weekend.

Generally we actually see an uptick in active users over Christmas, due to people having more time off to play games. But this way everyone has the option to play or not without feeling any pressure to contribute to a guild event if they celebrate Christmas.



Thank you, Kafka. Greatly appreciated.

Awesome, thank you! :heart:

Interesting that more people play during Christmas. I guess those who do won’t mind so much.

Oh, hey!

Just to be on the safe side - please make sure that the weapon gets the release date changed as well.

Wow, thank you!

And to think I was just coming here because I thought of a backhanded joke about Arena, but now I’ll just go to bed knowing I can enjoy time with the family.

Cheers and Merry Christmas.

Oh great… now I have to do that stinking Arena, the time waster, on that weekend… I wanted invasion, invasion, invasion (Nas voice)

Nah, seriously having some fun here, as I’m only kidding. I’m honestly trying to test out my upset cry baby tone. :rofl:

For me it doesn’t matter but for those who it does matter I hope they enjoy their holidays and stay safe.

People take this game a little too seriously. I can’t believe people care that much.

Good idea, much appreciated by almost all scubadivers :ok_hand:
Thanks a lot :wink:

Coming to a game’s forums to complain about people caring about that game is like buying tickets to a football game, walking down the rows of seats, turning around and yelling into a megaphone how stupid everyone is for being a football fan.


It’s cool that the devs changed it up, dont get me wrong.

I still think people need to remember, this is only a game. Some people act like it’s more important than life itself.

Exactly, this is only a game and they’re trying to live life by switching the event at Christmas from a Group event to something less detrimental if someone decides to live life.

Only person taking it too serious at this moment would be you…

Detrimental? Seriously? To what sane person is not maxing an event a detriment? You’re totally missing the point. You must’ve missed my earlier post.

Why do people care that much about the event? They could just accept the event for what it is, and not care if their guild gets all the rewards that weekend. Or (God forbid) they could tell their guild not to worry about the event, and enjoy the holiday.

Nope, can’t do that. If there is an event, they gotta max it out. What kind of life/game balance garbage is that? Do people really not see that mentality as a problem?

Or do what these bold people did, and cry to the devs to change it, for the sanity of their guildmates. That way they can enjoy the weekend. What the ____?

It’s great that the devs changed it, don’t misunderstand me. The fact that they felt they should do so, that part makes no sense.


You let what is happening in a weekend event of a game dictate if you can enjoy time with your family? Really?

Hi there! A tiny question)
Maybe you’ll consider rescheduling next Guild Wars? The week of 02.01-08.01 is holidays for us. According to spoilers, there will be kingdom pass + legends reborn + weekly event then. It’d be cool not to suffer from the Guild Wars pressure during the holiday week and just spend time with our beloved ones.
