Hey folks,

Quick update on the planned double event which was to start tomorrow with Game Update 5.6. First, the bad news. We hit a scheduling issue within the game and the double event will not go live tomorrow as intended. Now, the good news. As a make good for this missed opportunity, we are going to run the double event with Game Update 5.6.1 coming on 12/12. As an added bonus this will be an extended double event as we will run it from 12/12 - 1/1!

We apologize for the change in date, but expect you will enjoy 20 days of double time through the holidays.

Thanks everyone.

That is a better idea anyway actually as it opens up the full holiday season when most players would have time off from work/school/etc
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.

OMG LOL, as a software engineer I shudder to think what spaghetti code could cause something like this

So what you're saying is they can't walk* and chew gum** at the same time?

* Have a currently coded event.
** Add another event to kick off at the same time as an existing event.

For me this is great news. Due to a mistake, my broadband was disconnected today, and won't be back until 11th Dec, so this is perfect
