I thought today was the last day for attendance check in. I was supposed to get the damage skin box today, but it is no where in my event list.

    Yes, it ended before the advertised time.

    Another event scheduled improperly.

    @arwoo, can you look into this - allot of people are very disappointed and wanted that damage skin box.

    I can still see the Attendance Check on the event list, and it clearly states that it lasts till 19th of April.

    But you are totally correct; the patch note says 18th was the last day.

    So... when the game and the patch note give us two different information, which one are we supposed to trust?

    The in game Event List showed, at reset at least, 23 hours remaining; so that is where the confusion is coming from. I'm sure many people use that as their main guide, rather than going to this website and looking up the particular event.

    Oh wow, so there weren't any spare days? Even though we only had like five hours for the first day? And those five hours were when most people on the west coast were at work?

    Also, will the attendance that ends on the 19th be extended? Its one extra day was already eaten up by the long maintenance on April 5th.

    We will discuss possibly extending the attendance by an extra day due to the maintenance.
    Wha? I read that as them thinking of extending it because two days (the 5th and the 19th) were gonna get bogged down by maintenance, rather than just the 5th. But I guess Arwoo was also talking about the 5th?

    EDIT: wait, AKradian clearly said "extra" day, so they must have been talking about the 19th maintenance eating up a day, too.

    Listen, I could absolutely tell you right now that having the event end on April 19 makes no sense. The attendance had two weeks' worth of prizes. That's 14 days. How in the blazes do you suppose we get the prize for the 14th day when we only have 13 days to complete it (thanks maintenance)? Are we supposed to bend space-time?

    It actually is 14 days. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 = 14 days I think. But still, there was only like 5ish hours to do the first day so most people missed it due to work, school, etc.

    I personally can't complete it either way, but it sucks for the people that thought they could despite missing the first day.

    Nobody will care about this when all they see is:

    I believe Arwoo had said he would bring up extending it a day, I guess we never got that extension.

    They asked us how to improve the game, I mean - how about letting us actually play the game for the content. That would probably be a good starting point.

    Yeah, I missed the first day because the maintenance ran long, but thought it was going to be okay since we'd still have enough time running through the 19th. I guess neither the website info or in game event list can be relied upon. :(
