    Sorry for being the one to complain and i know im late, really i had exams and other real life problems to deal with so hadn't had much time to play so i couldn't get in much. When i did have the time i jumped right in to try and complete this Steam Mech promotion event and get the last gem, which means i'd have to get to level 40. Today in the last hour of the event, a group of us was trying to get me and my friend to the 40, and we are just a few xp from the mark when the maintenance came in and cut into our time. We had to give up even though i've already put in a bunch of xp pots into this, a bunch of anders im not getting back. I'm wondering if there will be an extension on the events because that really was a bummer for me and my friend to not be able to get to the end because we were cut off. We have been grinding for days now and i don't want that to go to waste. Wasn't sure what threat to put this in but i guess this will suffice.

    We were making atleast 15k per minute, and thanks. I was only 3 1/2 bars away from the 40, really messed me up though

    Sry to hear that, but seems this is some sort of tradition for BP, I wouldn't get my hopes up, as this is nor the first nor the last time this happened :/

    I truly agree with you Marce, I was with a friend and we farmed very hard for the past few days and yesterday at lvl 39. We were with a group of players at Gorga where we farmed really fast and hard to lvl40.

    We bought Red/Purple essense as we were only 3-4 bars away to lvl40. We do have ample time till maintenance started out suddenly.

    As hard as we farmed with Red/Purple essence. The sudden shorten time actually took our opportunity(and lots of hardwork) to complete the event away... Which is really unfair Bigpoint... :(

    Event timers should stop when server is down. Also, the premium clock continues to run during server down time. During the dwarf implementation I lost my last three hours of premium this way. Not a huge deal, but it should be fixed.

    Hey guys, on behalf of the DSO team we do apologise, the fact is that the event was actually extended, but then maintenance went on longer than intended, so it was actually missed.

    Hopefully it won't happen again.
