So, instead of providing you with one week, we’ll be extending Double XP to around four weeks, starting with Game Update 6.1.1 currently scheduled to be available on 14-Apr-2020. The planned end date for Double XP is 12-May-2020.

With all that’s going on these days, the dates could change, but we’ll keep you apprised. But, if it does, we’ll continue to offer the 4-weeks of Double XP (I figured someone was going to ask).

We sincerely hope you are all staying healthy. See you in-game soon.

---Keith

ps...Double XP includes XP, Valor, GSF, and Renown. It does not include Conquest points.

Or maybe you could do it now, since, you know, it's now that we are stuck at home. Give us 3 weeks now and 1 week for May the 4th if you want to celebrate May the 4th like that

It takes an actual game update to adjust in-game schedules, which is why we're coordinating it with the release of the next patch. We would have liked to provide it earlier, but having to get all the development environment set up in a collaborative way has taken a bit of a focused effort. The soonest we can make the adjustment for Double XP is with Game Update 6.1.1.

I think some times we as players don't realize just how much programming goes into a game. Although I'm not a programmer … a good friend of mine from years back was ( when living in Albuquerque , NM ) . It was amazing as to how much work there was just to get a stick figure to walk across the screen.

At any rate I do hope the team is well (as mentioned before hand) …. Our well wishes particularly to Eric and family as well !

OH …

TYVM for update !

Good thing he went on vacation when he did that was a blessing in disguise... I hope BW is practicing social distancing and letting people work from home or stay home now whatever they can do to make it safer for the employees.

Double XP or not, it's not important but there's nothing wrong with doing it, that's for sure even if Blizzard is doing it.
