Our May Madness Sale is tomorrow! Read all about it here.
Please leave your feedback below!
Is it called May Madness as you'd have to be mad to pay the asking prices?
No, cause you would still be mad if you paid those prizes in june.
What is CEST, is that like England time.
Central European Summer Time.
So the time in Berlin/Paris/Amsterdam/Rome
Thank you for listing the items that will be for sale so we can plan our purchases...... oh wait! Never mind
Ooooooo I love surprises
Victory Tower Upgrade.
Wishing Well Shrink.
All the popular stuff.
Popular 'cuz Inno Sez So.
. . . mk
We have no idea on what the things to buy are, and no idea on the exact diamond prices plus diamonds are not on sale?
Interesting surprise but unless you are one of those people with loads of diamonds saved up.... xD
Unless it is actually cheap enough for us to afford with less diamonds and the stuff is really good of course
Is CEST the same as server time? If not how about a meaningful time translation.
If it is - well thanks for running it yet again while I (and a significant %age of others) are fast asleep for 8 of those 12 hours - INNO never learns.
There are somethings I might consider buying - like the last missing piece or upgrade for a set or event reward building - no doubt they will be offered and expired as usual while I am asleep (in the past wake up to an interesting offer only to find its expired hours ago ....)
Then again thanks for saving my diamonds - I am genuinely sure I can find better uses for them especially if Mike K is right with his list - a total fail.
Yes CEST is server time. The time given is always server time.
Edit : CEST time is 1 hour ahead of server time therefore CEST is not server time.
The announcement says that if one does not manage to be online before the specified time the offer time will be extended. Maybe that helps.
Extract from May Madness Sale Announcement
I'm hoping for renovation kits or one-ups. I need a pile of them. But they would probably be too expensive for me to get more than 1 or 2, and I need about 30. I never get them in the daily challenges. I always get crappy store building items instead, which I rarely use.
Um...I think not. CEST is a time zone that observers daylight savings time rules. Nobody runs a game server in a time zone that gets mucked up twice a year by daylight savings time idiocy.
But, just to be sure, I googled 'CEST current time' and got 6:01. Then I went into DC and clicked settings.
It says: Current server time 5:01.
Can't we all just agree that:
Daylight savings time is a horrible, horrible idea that just confuses everyone and doesn't actually save any daylight?
Time zones are almost as horrible an idea. Would it be that awful if 5:01 meant the same time to everyone on the planet?
You are correct CEST is in fact 1 hour ahead of server time, my mistake sorry.
That is because the server time does not change when the time change in the respective countries is effected with respect to CEST.
Therefore if the sale starts at 09:00 CEST the server time should be 08:00.
I think the takeaway from this should be that using CEST to communicate time information to the EN community is a REALLY DUMB IDEA.
Unless you live in central europe (lots of us don't), you probably don't know what time it is in CEST. Or, even know what CEST means.
In the future, can times be posted as either UTC and/or server time? (And....why isn't server time UTC???? WTF? Who does that?)
why does a german company use german time ?
because when somebody says 9:00 everybody in the company think at the same time and nobody asks himself: in which time zone
Yup. If your goal is to get Germans to convert their Euros to diamonds, then CEST works. If you want people to convert their rand, peso, usd, etc. into diamonds, then CEST maybe isn't the best choice.
Oh boy, imagine if they all used different timezones.
"whens the event?"
"Cool. So that's.... uhhh... 9pm?"
It'd be "what time is it?" for the devs
During the Daylight Savings change over the DC quests got effected. So it's not entirely out of the question
Googling CEST looks like the sale might start in 40 minutes assuming I've looked up the correct timezone
Looking at first offer of the sale and yup you'd have to be mad to pay these ridiculous prices
