    Yes this was a peculiar end time.

    Was crafting rocks right to the end. Shut off two minutes early according to my phone time.

    I am so sad that I missed the deadline too. I saved all my items for crafting tonight, but got home late. I worked hard on crafting and learned now, never to save, spend right away.

    It stopped at 5pm Pacific daylight time, which I'm sure caught many off guard, especially since our daily event tasks started being available at 1am.

    Ok,EA, you've got us all speculating!

    And yet you can still collect said tokens, send prospectors, collect from other Springfields, raid hideouts, and see what tokens you still have. Can it be just for the daily challenges? Inquiring minds want to know! Maybe they will have a 1/2 off sale first thing tomorrow.

    Ugh ? Same here. I knew it ended today, and was going to unload all my extras. Got home and event was over. End time sucked.

    I'm sure you're not the only one expecting to be able to finish off spending their currency. Due to event history EA had set an expected standard that post final prize deadline that you would be able to spend the event currency to obtain items aside from the prize track. But even then I think there was more than one event that the final acts end wasn't set in stone by the timer. As long as the take down update wasn't forced you had time to finish off things. I personally was all done with all the prizes and didn't want to buy any extras of the stuff however I was surprised to see that the stuff was all shut off abruptly with the timer. I had considered taking one last look at the stuff and sending out the last of my prospectors to continue to help those who were close but shy of what they needed. So I was disappointed to see that I could not.

    Yeah, this is the kinda weird thing.

    But it's a trade off from being able to "craft" via the store. Lots of people liked the ability to easily buy multiple barrels, rocks, etc. Woo. But the trade off is that there's a hard end date with store items, unlike the event crafting that usually ends when the takedown happens.

    Same. Wow, this sucks. I hadn't spent any of my extra currency so I just wasted the last week of playing. Why after so long would they suddenly make a change like this? I know it's my own fault but it's still very disheartening. :(

    I think what people are surprised about is the fact that for the first time, an event has actually ended at the advertised time! No chance to do extra for several hours while we awaited a takedown update.

    However, the one thing that hasn't changed is the fact that us TSTO players get to have a "it's so unfair" whine - which it isn't, of course, but it makes us feel better. :lol:

    Grimes was a great character. Bought him right when he came out. Wish he had more tag lines when tapped though.

    I'm kinda annoyed they ended it so early. I had a lot resources saved for rocks and all of it went to waste.

    I call **** on that! :evil:

    Regardless what EA is doing people complain :
    If an event ends on time they complain because it ends on time and if we are able to purchase things after the countdown is down there are complaints why the event isn't over when it should be.

    This time we even get to complain about both, since half of the event has disappeared while the other half is still going!
