My god.. I can't believe that so many people thought the shop was going to be open during their timezone's time and not during server time.
The countdown timer was running on server time too, so it's kind of your fault for zipping in and out of the map and not checking the timer.
lol.
Good thing I didn't read the announcement by OneLetter since I haven't been on these forums for 3 weeks or else I would've been screwed over too :|
Anyways, to those who missed the shop: You didn't miss much because the trait items and Onyx Apples were unbuyable (at least for me they were) and the Explorer Hair and Face Coupons don't work on Beast Tamer. The only good thing in the shop was the five 30-minute 3x EXP coupons.
GG. You got Nexon'd :^)

    What are you talking about? The original times listed were:
    PST: Sunday, January 1, 2017 12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
    EST: Sunday, January 1, 2017 3:00 AM - 4:00 AM
    CET: Sunday, January 1, 2017 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
    AEDT: Sunday, January 1, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    People were complaining about nexon opening the shop at the wrong time AND closing it right before it was supposed to open. The shop was open at 2:59 AM est, but was closed at 3 AM est. Also, I couldn't buy anything when I visited the shop. Nexon even admitted they screwed up and opened the shop before the listed times.

    They opened the map early and then closed it making anyone who accepted the quest and went in before the time said could not go back in.
    Scummy as **** to do.

    Given the mass amount of players attending the event and stocking only a limited quantity of items in the shop, I was half expecting "Black Friday 2.0: Blink and they are gone!"

    they also posted at 12am pst on facebook the shop is now open!

    Just a terrible case of miscommunication, no biggie. They'll more than likely do something when they get back in office. maybe the extra day of 2x exp is the compensation?
