    Not speaking for the others, but I am not blaming EA.

    I am also not really complaining.

    I posted this since I thought it might be a glitch due to when the events used to end. Since I can remember, they would always end overnight between Monday and Tuesday.

    I assumed that was the case again. I did not do the math. My bad.

    So, if there is bashing being done about people complaining, please leave me out of it.

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

    I have to agree!

    I don't care about my lost resources, I think I bought everything that I thought I could use and still had tons of hats and pickaxes left, but geez, as long as we're getting rid of event related stuff, could you please take the dumb criminals or whatever they were called out of my town?

    You could exchange the Daily Challenges in the upcoming days or wait till they probably turn into cash challenges by themself.

    Felt this was the lazy way to end this glitched event. This is the first event in the history of the game to shut down prior to the take down. I spent the majority of my currency - so don't take this as a complaint that "I missed it".

    It'd be nice if they left the stuff available until the takedown. I saw no point in tapping criminals last night, nor having the bandit handouts releasing more of them. They were still there this morning as well.

    If they are forcing a shutdown, then:
    1) Bandits should stop spawning
    2) Hideouts be disabled
    3) All event currency is gone

    None of this halfway garbage to take some but not all the elements away.

    It is annoying that we're still getting Bandits (that I HAVE to clear or my game gets laggy) but get my reward for doing it anymore. It's also bizzare the cacti, fences and gates are still available while nothing else is (unless they're gonna become permanent, in which case YAY !)

    This is so true.

    Plus, if people are so frustrated that they didn't have enough time to make the exchanges, why didn't they just make them sooner? Maybe there were problems with the timer, but my timer was dead on (actually I think it was a minute fast if they were going for on the hour accuracy, but it was still precise).

    the timer was there all along since event start though it never was hidden

    QFT.

    Nobody can say they were duped or ambushed. That they were blindsided. Not this time.

    That countdown was never hidden and was present Day One.

    This^^ Plus, as always, LPN's been great about posting reminders throughout the event..just another good reason to check the forum frequently.

    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.

    I was in my app at the time, about 100 Hats away from getting another stagecoach. I left my app open during the time in the hopes that i can continue getting hats. While in the app, the event ended and took down all the remaining purchases. That's never happened to me before and I've always needed to (at least) restart the app.

    I'll be much more cautious in the future. I do find it odd I still can capture the bandits for event currency.

    I still feel duped. Since there something "Coming Soon" in the general store, I thought there might be a reason to hold on to everything too or at least wait till I got whatever was "coming Soon".

    Fortunately I did all my crafting the day before!

    There was clearly enough warnings in-game and here at the forum for everyone to craft ahead of the deadline, but I feel for those who didn't. To be fair, this is the first time EVER that they took down the craftables on time. Usually you have a day, possibly a few days leeway. That being said, I'm sure next event everyone will make sure they watch the clock to the second!
