Sorry that I haven't appeared sooner, I had to feed a whole menagerie of Bow Meows. And golly, that was not easy. With that all sorted, I wanted to come and let you know that I understand your disappointment that the event is only available for those with Booster Packs.
Unfortunately, we aren't able to alter the event once it's been started but I do think your opinions are valid. I will be making a report at the end of the week about the Advent Calendar event. So, if you have any other thoughts or feelings about this event, please reply to this thread.
And in case any of you missed the link (on the News,) here it is: click here
Thanks and, for those taking part, good luck!
I feel pretty strongly that there should be a gift-giving similar to the St. Potrick's event (but with actual good stuff) where people who've logged in within a certain time frame prior to the gift giving get the gifts on their accounts. This could be in addition to the Advent Calendar.
I also completely sympathize with the people who are frustrated about time zones and missing the event because of the calendar rolling over "early." This seems like something that could be localized to server time at least, especially since it's a problem that shows up in A LOT of events and promotions.
Even with the problems and complaints people have had, I'm still pretty excited about the Advent event and plan to continue participating.
