    The FHWE is meant to run for 3 days according to the calendar. It started just over an hour ago. The timer on the bottom of the FHWE says ends in - 1 day. Now that could mean 1 day and 23 hours and 59 minutes but that + the time already operating wont add up to 3 days. Is there a problem?

    The FHWE started just over 1 hour ago (1 hour 39 minutes) The timer on the FHWE factory says it ends in 1 day. I know that could mean 1 day, 23 hours and 59 minutes but that wont add up to the 3 days that are indicated on the calendar. Is there a problem or am I just misreading things.

    Hi everyone,

    Yes the FHWE is shorter than usual, we asked about that as soon as we saw it, as we thought it was unfair to wait so long to get FHWE and then it is short :/ As we said on the calendar, they are going to try to add in another one this month, but that is absolutely 100% NOT confirmed that it will happen.

    If it is any help, this one started at 10am CET (4th) and ends at 9.30am (CET) (6th).

    @vbillyboy55 (AU1) Can you tell me which Australian timezone you are in please, you can send in a PM if you prefer. :)

    It's just another slap in the face to Aussies , we lose another 12 hours  of a 3 day event because of our location.
    And all the events that start after 10pm uk ....swings and roundabouts

    (...)  Can you tell me which Australian timezone you are in please (...)
    I'm GMT+11

     My farm is on the GB1 server however I too am located Downunder and often miss out many hours or even the first/last day of an event altogether... I feel your frustration @vbillyboy55.

    Agreed! Hope so too.

    I'd still like to know if they can extend the event to its normal length. It's hard enough to even hope to finish when it's the full length. This shortened event makes it not worth doing for a lot of us.

    Is the CC clock correct now please 
  • gavinfarms (US1)gavinfarms (US1) US1 Posts: 2,190
    Can we get some more calendar info?  December is the most important month to have info, because we have to plan around the holidays for coop continuity.

    Because the calender seems to be unknown after 6 december, I took the liberty of filling it myself. Don't shoot the messenger...

  • Just maybe, please maybe, just maybe they wont overload us with events this month.  Many people will be away, or busy with families, or busy with preparations etc.  Maybe they have the sense to realise this and have cut down on the events accordingly - or because we wont be around to buy gold if we are doing other things!  Who cares as long as there are less events!

  • Kimmiecat (NL1)Kimmiecat (NL1) NL1 Posts: 864
    No, I filled it in a way GGS seems to plan events lately. Duration vary, starttimes vary, less fun events and more overlap.

    But you did give me an idea.........

    At least this is just a guess on your part as there is nothing official here in this forum or the DE forum... Hopefully no one will take this seriously... it is not official!

    Fun to see what your concept of the calendar might be!  :D

    @Kimmiecat (NL1)   You missed the school with each of the CC's  & need a wedding planner, food truck & goldfish rescue in there too, but would you like me to pass on your suggestion to the scheduler? :p lol

    Sorry for the delay getting next section posted, we were told they were waiting till after the update to do it (no idea why) so hopefully we will get something today.

  • Oh dear, BigFarm/Goodgame.  I looked at the calendar so I could send it to my team.  I fell on the floor (oh, don't worry I didn't injure myself).  But, I can't stop laughing.  Either you don't celebrate Christmas/New Years or you do celebrate, but have no family or friends so you will be playing Big Farm.  I used to get upset, but now it's just one big joke.  And, as I tell my team, "do not stress or worry" "spend the holidays with your family & friends NOT with BigFarm".  We were in the gold league and we are now silver.  The last CC I didn't even do 1 million points.  My team finds it more important to be with family and friends, therefore, we break from the end of October until after the New Year.  And, maybe we'll just park our team in silver for good.  Just too funny.
