    @Radicaldav I think I got 3 or 4. Usually I’m not that lucky!

    Incredibly! Played since yesterday, lots of hours, got everything, except the whomping willow. Did not even encounter one. And this is not the first time, happened to albus dubbledoor also just a few events ago. Would expect you guys to learn, after the impossible 3x masterful, the impossible 10x Albus, and now Whomping 5x while reducing the encounter chance. This really makes me mad. What will it be next event, get three looser that only appear on quarter moon between 3.00 and 3.15 AM?

    Incredibly (2x). I do not believe in coincidence: seriously, 1 minute after I complained (see few reactions back) I encountered my first whomping willow. But seriously guys, I can't be bribed; this is bad planning and giving me a comfort willow is not the way, you have to stop making events harder and harder, this is not funny any more

    @Sarahasg I assume not. No update since last night. Hopefully it gets fixed by tonight if not sooner but if not I'm hoping they take the time to really investigate why this is a repeated issue, and only happens during events

    OK, so I played since yesterday, played about 7 tonics, but no whomping willow. Got everything but the willows. And now what? Complained elsewhere on the forum and immediately got one willow (no tonic active) and now, how to get the other four? If 7 tonics did not get me any willow, how can I get them? Have no idea

    @ZaansGroen It’s random. I’m not sure if you think that someone is reading your posts/complaints, and then altering your playing experience as a result, or ‘trying to bribe you’, as you put it. It is just coincidence.

    As I said, I do not think it is coincidence. Although I understand you want to believe this, but the fact that I think it is a complot, does not automatically mean I am wrong. You are just afraid I am right.

    @ZaansGroen Fair enough. Believe what you like. Good luck with that!

    @Dewin99 OK, I pick up the glove. What are the odds that I do not encounter any willow when playing for eight hours, an then get three the ninth hour I play? Maybe I should pick a lottery ticket also

  • ZaansGroenZaansGroen Posts: 41 ✭✭
    #7322 August, 2020, 05:17 pm.

    Maybe they did alter the chances for everyone?

    Maybe Bigfoot is real and the Earth is flat? Who knows eh?

    @ZaansGroen Read up on the ‘Monte Carlo Fallacy’ if you want to see how odds can affect you.

    You're mocking me, I was serious. Maybe they really do listen to us and updated the chance to get a willow, that would be OK, wouldn"t it?

  • ZaansGroenZaansGroen Posts: 41 ✭✭
    #7722 August, 2020, 05:48 pm.

    Threw another tonic at it. Waited/played for half an hour, no willow. Any serious hints anyone?

  • Dewin99Dewin99 Posts: 753 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yes. I apologise. It’s just that seeing as it’s the weekend (which the moderators don’t work), I seriously doubt that they would read through any non-bug related posts (of which they have their hands full with the Knight Bus issues), and advance this ‘problem’ (which not many are complaining about), and select your post as an urgent priority worthy of placing above other current issues with the developers. I could be wrong though, as you said.

    Beside the randomness, i think this weekend event ia better then others weekend in regards of spawning the event traces. Past events spawns seems very low wasnt it, this event now each TTD spawns mostly WoW family and just small portion of others family.

    Just my experience thou.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked to fix a server issue with Wizarding Challenges. We resolved this issue and players should now be able to use the Knight Bus and Fortresses.

    We will be extending Wizarding Weekend by 18 hours and it will now end at 5 AM PT on August 25th.

    @Dewin99 np. And you're probably right. It just seems suspicious not getting any willow for eight hours of play and then get three in a row without using tonic and now I am using tonic solely for this and not getting any willow. Just frustrating and bad luck

    I have returned weasleys car three times now though it does not show on the count. This Is worse than what happened with dumbledore Recently when I lost a chellenge by one because not all of the dumbledores I returned counted.

    @ZaansGroen Hopefully the rest of the weekend will bring you better luck. 🤞🏻

    Seams to be working now 😀

    This event has been very frustrating. Despite using a few TFT, I still have seen & caught only 2 Whompies and 3 Weasley mobiles. Am at 50% or less on all WWWorld traces. And for the skimpy prizes offered, I’m not sure I’m willing to throw more potions and play time at it. What gives HPWU?

    Is anybody else having trouble with getting the event runestones? It was working fine, all event traces giving runestone, but now I am not getting any runestones from event traces.


    I have submitted a Bug report and I am wondering if anyone else is seeing the problem?

    @NexusGameTheory All event traces != runestone. There is only " a chance to receive" one.

    Might a player suggest that fortress battles with 3 players be removed from events? Throwing dedicated players out of a game is very poor market strategy, dudes.

    @xxxlindy I don’t quite understand what you mean. Have you managed to use the Knight Bus to complete the task?
