Five day alliance mission?

Is this a bug associated with daylight savings time? Scoring has reverted back to five day point totals too. Will this be corrected or are five day series a thing again? There wasn't an announcement. We'd like to know before we commit to using resources. Thank you.

    So much overreaction.

    Pretty sure this is just a bug, I sincerely doubt they have added back a 5th day of AM permanently.

    Look at it this way... It's an opportunity to get your alliance another milestone or two (unless you're in the top 3 doing D140.. then, it just sucks 🤣🤣)

    What if....just maybe....AM is now infinite. Every day you will have to move in concert with your virtual friends and smash bots. Your top bots constantly worn out and tied up unable to do anything but AM.

    And here I thought Halloween was over. The nightmare continues! Evil Tread meets AM for a truly hellish 2020.

    Now go. Go and watch the AM timer count down minute by minute. Keep typing those OOE messages in LINE. Keep ignoring your kids and families. ÀM fo life!

    Don’t feel bad. When I try to do ROTF jetfires voice it just sounds like a cranky Australian. Though Australian jetfire would be cool.
  • Yea, why is it a 5 day AM?

    Quite alarming that we have no response from a mod on AM running for a 5th day. @Kabam Vydious @Kabam Miike we would really appreciate some information here. Just an error with the timer? Permanent changes? etc...

    thanks
  • I wouldn't say it's alarming. It's safe to assume we're busy with something else in that moment. I apologize for the delay of a response. This is going to be a one time thing due to that delay we had where we needed to push it out manually. Apologies on any confusion!

    I wouldn’t say alarming either. But I am very relieved to know this extra AM is just a one-time accidental Halloween trick on us.
  • Canuck33Canuck33 Posts: 243
    I said that because clearly AM is a very integral part of this game and to have this happen and not have any communications is the alarming part. Thank you for getting back to us but it very much seems like you guys aren't taking it seriously. So we just ride it out, take the extra milestone points, figure out the standings based on 5 days, use up more AM kits etc? is there any sort of discussions happening? Sorry for the negativity but I really relish the days off from AM and here we are slugging away again with our top bots locked away.
    @JIMMY_SAB guess ill join you guys in ignoring my wife again tonight...

    How about some one time extra milestones? You know, just so we don't play for nothing.

    Thanks for the response. Hopefully there's an official announcement about this. Alliances are still wondering how this might effect rank rewards, and wether any effort or resources we use will be rewarded or compensated.

    An advice, make am 3 days its more logical for more players @Kabam Vydious

    Let's assume it's a bug they didn't know of.

    Vydious, I have super respect for you. However this doesnt make sense. None of your responses make any sense. I don't want to make an issue of this, we as a group need more then this.
  • I feel like this is Vyd's way of saying "it's just a game. Chill."

    I'm not sure what you're looking for here. We had an issue with this AM starting, if you'll recall, and therefore we had to push it manually. In doing this we had a different issue with the length to which it's running-- that was not intentional and this will not happen again. We apologize for the frustration that has surrounded this.
  • Hey everybody,

    Vydious has already described what caused the issue. We are currently looking into if anything can be done, but will not be ending this Alliance Mission early. We have no plans at this time, but will update you if/when there are any devised.

    We won't be able to update you until we have information to update you on, so please don't bump this thread asking for information.

    No AM rewards please look into this

    My only question is,
    What is scheduled or supposed to happen next alliance mission event in terms of start time. Are we expecting 9Am est ? I didn’t really get an answer in that thread.

    I can understand if there are some issues when there are changes and things happen. However, why was there no mention of this to the community? Especially after we started asking on the forums....

    Obviously the questions being asked here was because we were wondering why there was extra time added to the timer. If y’all knew things were different because
    We had an issue with this AM starting, if you'll recall, and therefore we had to push it manually. In doing this we had a different issue with the length to which it's running

    Why not just come out and say so instead of posting this:
    That timer should've always been present to let you know when AM ends.

    In the future (if there is one), please just be straightforward with us and tell us what’s going on. With the exception of a few, we’re old enough to handle it.
