I think that such information should also be put on the Forum as well, not just sneakily in the Guide section for the Gems of War. Many people are not aware of it.
I suppose many other people don’t agree with this change as well, intended or not.
I think that a one week bonus to Experience is a good thing.
I do not always have time to play on Mondays. Some people can only play during the weekends.
Please, extend the Special Event Bonus for Experience points to one week again.
I asked around many people and most of them are saying that you got really skimpy recently.
I hope that you consider this and revert the change that you’ve made, even if you listed this as a bug.
It was “a bug” for several years and never reported as such. The first time we heard “it’s a bug” was the day after they fixed it. I’m sorry but I’m never going to believe “it’s a bug” on that basis. What they mean is, “This is an unpopular change and I still want to be cool so if I call it a bug the players will be happy.”
“You get a week of bonuses for winning a weeklong event” isn’t a preposterous expectation. The “bug”, in my opinion, was it was lasting 3 weeks, but I think you’ll find plenty of players that’d be quite pleased if the “fix” for that were a weekly GW again
Anyway the other angle I find it odd from is this “fix” is a thing that makes it harder for new players to catch up to old players. I got to experience more than 50 weeks of week-long XP bonuses. No player who signs up now gets to have that. This is on my list of “Why new players shouldn’t start GoW” reasons fairly low, but it’s still very off-model for a game to, after several years, introduce measures that slows down new player development vs. the rate old players had.
