    Do you think they accounted for daylight savings in their local time announcement?

    Hello. I look very much forward to this CD as I need many red books (I'm a magizoo!).

    However the event launched at 10am in France instead of the announced 11am. We planned to gather at 11am with my local community so we won't be able to play from 10 to 11. I hope the event will stop as planned at 2 PM and we will not lose 1/3 of the event...

    @TyrandausTravis It sounds like they didn't adjust for daylight savings time. So if you did it based on the clocks as they were last month, it did start at 11am. But clocks have gone back an hour since then. I live in a country that never changes the clocks, so there was no problem. I honestly think this is why happened and I hope they make up for it!

    The day ended unexpectedly here as well at 1300 jours!! From 11 local time to 1400 local time, is what was promised. It ended an hour too early and we only had the last challenge to go :(

    As I feared (and expected) the event also finished 1 hour early in France so we have lost 1/3 of the event time. Some people who planned to arrive at 12h30 did not even manage to finish the quest...

    Very disappointed that Niantic cannot get their time zones right. I hope we will have a reboot for 1 hour in the evening next week to compensate!

    Why did Community Day end at 1 pm? It's an hour left of the event, and now it's gone...

    Will require too many potions for this witch. Wasn't able to find ingredients in time or have time to both grow and brew before the event. I just attempted Forest I last night and barely made it, so no red spell books for me.

    Hello Niantic,

    Iam a very enthusiastic player and family father. So I can understand that you can not happy every people that play that game.

    But I I can manage the get some time mid or after lunch and I recognize that the event ended 1pm or 13 hour in European time, then I get very angry. You say 11am to 2pm LOCAL time. Sorry, that's realy bullsh...

    It's nice to have events, but manage pls that you don't say so and make it otherwise. Cheerals to all that happen the same to it...

    Best regards

    From Fazes discord

    Due to the timezone issues with Community Day we have extended the event by 1 hour. 

    If you are in a timezone where your event starts at 10am, your Community Day will still run until 2pm. 

    If you are in a timezone where your event starts at 11am, your Community Day will run until 3pm.

    For those players in timezones that had an early start, please stay tuned for more info coming soon. 

    Sorry, again, for this inconvenience! Thank you to everyone who has reported and helped troubleshoot this issue!

    This was a great event- finally it felt as if there was a goal for the three hours. We just had the one issue, that the event started and ended an hour earlier than expected. Apparently the 11-2 was for local summertime :(

    Sounds like it was an awesome event. Fingers crossed there will be a re-run and we'll be able to catch up. :)

    Did this really just start st 10 am EST? Did you forget daylight savings time in most of the US? I'm not meeting my crew until 11 am.

    Seems the problem with timezones is continuing globally. And we regardless of the announcement seen above, could see in our group that at least the elixir-brewing was n longer shortened in time.

    We had no other apparant indicators, as we had already finalised the quests.

    @Owlx Thank you for passing along that note!

    Yes, there was an issue with scheduling in some areas. Therefore, we have extended it an hour for countries who still had Community Day live when we discovered this issue. Stay tuned for more info on this! Thanks!

    I gotta complaint. There was literally only one wormwood on the ground during the three hour window. Whatever happened to healing potion ingredients being found on the ground, perhaps not in abundance, but atleast a decent amount?

    Just wanted to suggest as it’s getting colder outside, I would pay extra to give my avatar a bigger distance to reach for 30minutes.

    The nearest fortress is so close, yet so far.

    Well, this one was mixed for me. When I read that it was fortress-based, I thought I might finally get a chance to do the darn SOS challenge that’s been sitting there for months. Then I saw it wasn’t a Saturday like the rest of them. Unfortunately, Sunday is family day and I have my grandkids all day. They come over at 11 so luckily, since it started an hour early, I was able to rush over to the nearby fortress and do the tasks, but I didn’t have time to go to the park fortresses where there might actually be others playing. I am grateful that I was at least able to do the tasks by myself and didn’t need other players to complete it, but I really just want this stupid SOS task to go away already. 🙄

    Only two wizards in my town of McAdoo, PA (me and my daughter), what an epic fail!

    My daughter is upset we couldn't finish tasks cuz we needed more witches n witches. If this is going to be the norm where we need others to complete tasks I might be done with the game. This is why I'm not playing Pokemon Go.

    You want more witches and wizards, then let Niantic come and rally the area where I live. I have a too much too do to do their job for them!

    Very disappointed in this event!

    @OriginalCaruso Thanks! I am so happy it started early. I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do the tasks until I saw people posting that it started early, so I checked at 10 just in case and was pleasantly surprised!

    The SOS task just bugs me because I don’t like to leave anything unfinished. It just would be nice to get rid of it already!

    As the event is drawing to a close here in Phoenix, I have to say, I have negative feelings about it.

    I'm putting aside the technical issues; repeatedly getting booted from a battle in the middle of it, enemies coming back to life, etc.

    For those who do not have ready transportation, time, and a bunch of other active players in their area, this event is a bust. I'm sitting here looking at the 4th set of tasks and there's no way I can get through them by myself. Looking at the awesome rewards for completing makes me want to cry.

    Niantic has got to figure out how to level out the difficulty of the tasks. If they're not going to promote the game like they did/do for Ingress and PoGo, then they need to gear the tasks toward solo players.

    I mean, I'm a daily player. Level 32 Professor. I'm no slouch when it comes to abilities. But Forest Chambers 4 & 5 are too much for a solo player. If I was a lower level player I would be absolutely frustrated to the point of giving up on the game.

    This was a great community day! We had a great turnout at Del Amo Mall in Torrance, CA through our discord group. We got to meet a bunch of new witches/wizards that bumped into us playing and we helped them climb the fortress floors. The challenges were a big hit with everyone and of course everyone appreciated the spell books! This was my favorite HP community day so far. Thanks!
