Winter Event Debacle

So to further add insult to injury, I log on today and get a notice the winter event is over and all my unused cheer got converted to money.

I was mad that there was not proper notice ending the event last week. I was grinding for the 15,000 cheer package and the event ended earlier then the dirty bomb said it would. I lost almost 12,000 cheer. They ended the event last week but didn't let anyone use their cheer after the event like usual.

I have been mad about it for a whole week and I log on today and they announce the winter event is over, a week late.

unprofessional rat bastages

  • This happened to me in a past event(not as much as yours), so now I spend special currency as fast as i can get it.

    They should give atleast a week before killing the credits. Although i do remember seeing jan 4 as the cut off somewhere.

    Hey look i finaly got a sig , and nothing to put here

  • I got the end notice today, like they thought we still had our cheer and could spend it.

    I'm already old and successful.

  • That is true, I cant read very well. I can count on 1 hand the books I have read.
    I do go to bed thinking, I may not be able to read very well, but, thank god I'm not Canadian!

    trust me, all of Canada agrees

  • The event message showed again for me with the extra ranked points announcement this week. Just a bug, you'll live.

    IMO

    Given that this is the best event Splash Damage has ever hosted, I would hardly call it a debacle. I feel for you, but this is entirely on you.

    1. They announced it would run from December 19 to January 4th. They ended it at 4 in the morning on January 4th. You had to check social media to know exactly when it would be stopped.
    2. For the first time, in any event I've ever played, they didn't let you spend your reward after the event was over.

    I was able to grind for 15kcheers once. Hard climb and took a lot of patience. It was kinda meh but not too shabby. was able to get 3 gold trinkets, opened a few weapon crates (highly disappointing) and a Christmas locked box. Oh well... better luck next year (If I'll still be around).

    1. Yes, they could've announced it in a better way, but
    2. They only let you spend your ranked points after season is over, I don't know about any event that let you spend event currency after it was over, it always just ended and currency was transferred to credits.

    I did the same exact thing. Was thinking about the 5 case bundle but...TRINKETS...

    Prox, Jav, and Guard. Got 2 javs, a guard, a thunda, and a rhino all descent from rewards/drops/regular cases so i figured RNJesus was done with me so i went for sure things and weap case keys. Even got a pristine guard pistol out of it.

    All in all, top notch event!

    To sum up the feedback for SD:

    1. The Nuclear Winter event basically was great.
    2. Next time add a countdown.
    3. Next time add a period of about a week after the event where people can still spend their event currency.
    4. Fix the bug with the end of event announcement popping up a week after the fact.

    Can we get over this now?

    I'm not going to be able to get over it.
    I'm always going to be salty.

    It's a slip up from SD for sure but sadly we can't just blame it on them only. People should realise it's a Christmas event for limited period. There is no way it will just carry on into January and won't end. Although it did for few days but should've realised the event was at closing. Nevertheless how hard was it to put a countdown timer SD? >:)

  • I knew it was ending on January 4th, just not Jan 4th at 4:00 pm London time.
