      I'm assuming those opt-in times are the deadlines, correct?

      I think opt-in is when they allow us to join the event before it starts

      @Brigby Do you happen to know what happened to the Planeswalker Arena? That was a fun event.
    • SzamszielSzamsziel Posts: 168 Tile Toppler
      Sarcasm on:
      If anything is bringing fun it should be removed asap. This is grind game it shouldn't be fun.
      Sarcasm off.

      I'd like to play also other events (like terror in the shadows) - of course with non standard only cards.

      @Sarahschmara @Matthew @majincob
      To my knowledge, the Opt-in Time is when the event appears in the Events page, with the "Starts in X," and you are able to pre-join the event.

      @sjechua
      I unfortunately do not know when Trial of Strength will be run, as I currently do not see it on the schedule. I will pass that inquiry along to the developers though!

      @UweTellkampf
      Good question. I will also pass that along!

      Oh wow... now this is weird. To quote you:
      • Silver: 35 Mana Crystals + 300 Mana Runes + 1 Booster
      • Bronze: 30 Mana Crystals + 550 Mana Runes + 1 Booster
      So wait.. For bronze you get 250 more mana runes and 5 mana crystals less? What sorcery is that?!

      Hi Everyone. I'm still waiting on confirmation for the rewards, however I do have some information to communicate about the upcoming Trial of Zeal event.

      Recharge timers will be set to 4 hours instead of 8. This was previously a bug, and was fixed in the 2.1.2 update. In addition, the 850 max progression ribbon will be reduced to 750 ribbons.

      @Tilwin90
      Yes, Bronze does get more Mana Runes, however they need to reach 15 ribbons to acquire the 550 Mana Runes, whereas Silver only needs to reach 5 ribbons to acquire all 300.

      will each node hold more charges now that they
      recharge twice as fast?

      If the recharge times are getting reduced than make it so that each node can hold 10 charges.
      Seriously, battles on the tougher bosses take up a long time. We'd rather the timers were 8 hours.
    • madwrenmadwren Posts: 1,282 Chairperson of the Boards
      Someone please tell them that any complaints of boredom are because people want novelty, not frequency. Hopefully node capacity will be increased, as the four-hour day was brutal. Changing it to 8 was a godsend.

      I hope you'll join me.

    • murtagonmurtagon Posts: 51 Match Maker
      The reason we wanted the 8 hour timers was to prevent people from missing out on charges since there was a restriction on how many charges a node could hold.  Ideally a node should hold enough charges to allow someone to step away from the game for 24 hours.  We really do not want to go back to the days of missing charges due to real life commitments.

      Reviewing notes from the developers regarding Trial of Zeal, they said: 
      It also will be lowered to 750 ribbons instead of 850, and with double the changes[sic] to attempt the encounters should be much more attainable.
      (Disclaimer: I am optimistically under the assumption that the word changes is supposed to say charges)

      8 hours was far more preferable and received mostly positive feedback. Are you actually trying to take any good changes and throw them back in our faces?

      It's like you read the feedback (event is too drawn out, progression is too hefty a target) and heard "We want more battles". Genuinely in awe at the ability to creatively interpret feedback.

      The word covfefe makes more sense than this.

      With the health / boss system, the faster reload of charges doesn't lead to doubling the charges - its just half the time for the same amount of charges ;)
      Will they change the ( platinum) basic booster to something useful? Actually anything is more useful than that, even 100 runes would be less disappointing than that.
       I hope the nodes will be able to hold at least 5 charges.
      You don't need Beta-testers when you have a community!
